Mip Shiny bones vs regular Mip cvd bone

Post by JosephS »

Are the MIP shiny cvd bones the same as the regular bones except for the finish or is there supposed to be a performance advantage?

I am 99.9% sure it's just a difference in finishes. The 0.1% is whether or not there is a material difference.....is the black version steel and the shiny version stainless steel?
Hope you're doin' something fun.

I agree the shiny was just a cool look, it was not advertised as being better. The aluminum ones on the other hand did have an advantage of being much lighter

There is the standard shiny ones, which I believe is nothing more than the finish. Then there is the shiny aluminum ones, which are obviously different.
