I bought 3 about a month ago, I wanted to play with them a bit before posting a review:
Out of the Box
Has a bit of vibe. Tightened them a bit, then BOOM! The Smoothness.
The Blue ones look dang sweet. The Yellow one wasn’t as bright as they looked in the pics,
but the shade of yellow was unique, and also catches the eye well because…well, its yellow LOL
Hmm, thought the stickers were kinda cheezy…(Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip)
After a Month
Blue ones play SMOOOOTH when tightened a bit. The yellow one play Smoooooooth on any level of tightness.
These things play FAST. Doesn’t feel like 69grams at all.
They can handle all my 5a speed combos with ease, horizontals as well.
The shape feels comfy in the hand, slightly sharp, slightly organic.
Spin time lasts as long as my longest combo, which is about 1 minute long LOL.
Oh yeah, you can do Finger Grinds on these things, you just have to REALLY WANT TO. haha!
These things take a BEATING. The plastic looks and feels pretty thick, and the axle is as thick as the ones on FHZ’s, so no problems there. Ive dinged and bashed them around pretty hard. A little bit of sandpaper to get rid of the rough edges, and they play as smooth as the day I got them. (pretty F’ing Awesome in my book)
(side note: talked to some C3 peeps from around here, apparently, some of the caps are superglued, so, DONT MESS WITH 'EM)
The caps get a bit dirty, being white, but nothing a bit of metal polish and elbow grease wont fix.
The colors didn’t get dark or anything.
Looks like I’ll exclusively be using Alpha Crashes this year. The play seems to really fit my style, plus the fact that its so dang cheap. Love these guys to pieces.
