It was sold on the CLYW website as having ano flaws or vibe or both. I can definitely see ano flaws on both halves and while not dead smooth, it’s as smooth as I’d expect from an A-grade, not as smooth as my CODE1, smoother than my Cascade.
In any case, I’m not a vibe freak so a bit of vibe isn’t really gonna affect my opinion of a throw’s overall performance.
I don’t see why you’re having so much trouble accepting someone doesn’t love the Arctic Circle. It’s an ok throw, just feels a bit heavy and not as stable as I’d like.
