Default Update on Terra?

I haven't used either of the 'new' terras, searching is really out of date, missing photos etc

Do we like the terra 2? the fast striking?
Fast striking looks pretty light.

Of course I would like something like the middle bead

Kim Neely from Bluff Road Glass has a huge tutorial on the new Terra, both pulls I believe.

Short version. Fast striking Terra. Small beads, short work time, unencased, great colors.

If you like the original Terra then you will like the fast striking Terra. Me...not a fan. I liked the re-release of Terra before the whole fast striking and machine pulled stuff happened. I have hoarded a bit.

ah ok, well i love and have 2 rods of original so this helps! I will try fast striking. I got spoiled by Brad's glass so trying to make do.

Shardi I more than likely will be making 1" or smaller. As for the tut, I've seen that, but honestly I'd rather that a glass not need a tutorial haha....or something like that
