Sand it down and it’s smooth CF. Are you referring to the CF/G10 laminate that Taichung uses? That stuff I really wish they’d ditch in favor of the stuff they use in Golden.
Why do you feel the CF/G10 laminate is so inferior? I understand if it's all about the texture for you. There was a time when I only wanted handles that had really grippy texture. Now that I have a drawer full of jeans and cargo shorts with the right pocket fraying I'm starting to appreciate handles with less texture. I find the CF/G10 laminate is very durable and it has just enough texture so it's not slippery yet it doesn't rip my pockets apart. I do wish they'd offer some color variations. Otherwise I really like it. I still like the grippy stuff but sometimes a little less grippy is nice too.Joey wrote: ↑Sun Nov 04, 2018 12:38 pmAs someone who has never owned (or really ever seen in person) any carbon fiber, I find the Golden peel ply/full CF scales to be outstanding. Last week I got my CF PM2, and my “CF” Sliverax. I have to say, now that I have one of each, I almost have to get rid of the Sliverax. It is simply an inferior material choice, and I almost wish it was just straight G10. Peel ply CF would of course be the best option, but I’m also happy I got it for $120 shipped.
