There was a discussion on reddit around “best bimetal”, and of course everything is subjective and there is no real “best” … but… that being said, of course there can be a “top 5” or “top 10” that is plenty valid!

Bliss… It’s absolutely the best bimetal on the market, and I’ve tried most of them.
Flashback would be another awesome recommendation.
Hummingbird would be my third.
That’s interesting, because I … don’t find the Bliss all that interesting, or the Flash / Flashback. To me they play like bog standard V shapes. Here’s a list of all the bimetals mentioned to jog people’s memory (there are a lot):
- Draupnir (of course)
- Grasshopper X / Haymaker X
- Turning Point palpitation
- Mini-Star 2 (undersize though)
- Atomic Crash
- Charm / Vacation
(and there are dozens if not hundreds more… feel free to riff in your reply…)
What are your thoughts? Of the bimetals you’ve played, which would you put in a top 3 or top 5 list?
