Quicksilver and Hollow Point
« on: July 14, 2010, 04:46:43 PM »

Good news: Dale got from China the prototypes for the new Quicksilver and Hollow Points!
Bad news: he had to send them back because the dimensions were not correct.
He expects to have good prototypes by worlds but probably not the production tops.
The Quicksilver will be a "hybrid": aluminum body and plastic cap.
The tips will probably be diabolo style.
These tops should be Tops!  8)

It'll be interesting to see what Dales diabolo tips look like and the hybrid sound super-cool.

By diablo tips, do you by chance mean something along the lines of a one-way bearing? Or is it the shape?

We are calling diabolo tip just one an open and symmetrical profile: two identical cones meeting to form the grove.
