    Got this pair of used Plasma frame Juliets, which I believe are 1st gen. I had read some references to a somewhat rougher finish on the earlier models. I was a little surprised by the extent of the roughness. For the experts out there, is the rough finish you see in this pic fairly normal? The area photographed is probably the most glaring example, and there are a few other areas that are a bit less rough than this. Juliet Rough Finish - 2013-09-04_19.49.09.jpg

    It's normal. The pair I let go had a few weeks ago had a few imperfections as well. I should have kept it. This is probably more pronounced than the ones I've seen before.

    A man's hands went into crafting those, and he left his signature in them. I love it.



    Dude had butterfingers though.

    Slipped through QC I think. Clearly no hand finishing done on this pair.

    I beg to differ. The lugs for the orbital screw show facets from some process - probably a semi-rigid wheel.

    Probably the last pair made on a Friday or the first pair made on a Monday. :)
