    Thumbs up Thinner Is Better (Carbon Fiber Scales of course!)

    So I finally got in a new shipment of CF I've been waiting for and I love it. Thinner material and the flexibility is great! I think thinner scales look more streamlined and classy regardless of the type of material, but I think these scales are the ultimate in terms of looks and durability. They should last forever. The weave is also wider so you get a better pattern. 6k instead of 3k. Balance is still great, etc. Check out the flex with a nice wedge!

    P.S.- I did zero work on either blade. Also, I don't know why the photos don't look like it, but those wedges are FLUSH. No gaps.

    Oh my! Alex, those scales really look fantastic and the Sheffield is, if i'm allowed to use a classic phrase from this forum mine, all mine.

    That is a very nice look. The thinner material just looks right.
