How different is the chaser from the Phenomizm?
Very. Different shape, different bearings, different play on the string. The Chaser isn’t as speedy as the Phenomism, comes with narrow and YJ Speed bearing and is very heavy, almost 74 grams, yet it does play light and agile and very stable. The Phenomizm comes with a KK, plays fast, stable and smooth and feels like almost nothing on the string, way lighter than the Chaser. The “sharp” rims can pop you on hard binds, but that’s to be expected. The Phenomizm is all catch zone, while the Chaser isn’t yet still has a generous and easy to land catch area.
Too bad you’re not near me, you could try both.
