So I had bob coat one of my throws with this new Powder he has been meaning to test.
So Lets cut to the chase!
I was pretty Darn shocked when i saw this thing in the picture above.
The color was so nice! The texture seem very close to a rougher version of Bobs
This powder also REALLY Shimmers.
it has a very Antique-esque kind of look.
almost like, it was rolled in some sand, and then left to age.
not exactly vintage.
But it still has that look.
When I received it
Man, i was so wrong about the feel!
When I touched it, it did NOT feel like the Beadblast i was expecting.
its actually… Smooth.
Like, dried grey clay kinda smooth.
not in the kiln yet, just naturally hardened.
Upon the inspection, there was defiantly a more unique feel to this.
its somewhat “Wavy” if that makes sense?
it feels so strange, yet pleasant.
Prior to this coat, the yoyo had a tumble finish,
and felt kind… soft.
Now after the powder
It has a more Hard, almost like a rock like Granite,
but in no way hurts to catch.
On the Throw
Absolutely no vibe added from this coat.
No worries for that!
The Yoyo Shimmers in the light as it spins
Not glittery. SHIMMER
Light Dances off this thing like Bo Jangles with some redbull
Did add a TAD bit of weight. But its not effecting my play at the slightest.
Okay, this finish Truly shines at grinds!
It can handle pretty much all modern grind tricks
and is just as good as a beadblast.
Oddly enough, as you hold it It feels grippy.
But it really isn’t.
Very peculiar, and again very Unique.
So to Sum this up.
-add a little weight
-not Vibe inducing
-Grinds like a beadblast
-Makes the yoyo have a slightly different texture and feel than most Alu
Overall, I’d say this is a MUST if you like Grinds, Grey, shimmer or if You’re just Darn tired of Same old same old!
