So I was goofing around with my Adegle PSG today, and I got a snag. I took it apart to get the snag out, and I remembered this had spacers. After a while, I decided to look at the YYE page and I saw a flipside, and I got to thinking about the FHZ, what I consider Duncan’s flagship model.
I’ve seen tons of FHZs modded to use large bearings and what not, and some of them have been flops (literally, from what I hear) while others have been successful.
But, if Duncan were to use the Flipside’s spacer system in the FHZ, wouldn’t this be the throw that people have been looking for? No need to change the guts of the throw other than the spacer seats and recess the pads, and viola! You have a small bearing throw for learning tricks, or you can switch to a large bearing if you want to.
I’ve never played with a FlipSide, but I will be getting one as soon as I can, but considering the popularity of the FHZ, it doesn’t seem like too terrible of an idea to me. How do you guys feel about this?
