Default Zephyr 12mm

Any input on the bigger diameter? Zephyr seems so soft, I wonder if it's a pita to use? (104 marbles, implosions etc)

only that the 12mm seconds are almost unuseable....stones, bubbles etc.

the 6mm seconds you can't even tell are seconds.

some people like the softness of it, some don't. i do like it. i learned with CIM clear, which is scummy as all get out and very soft. but i learned how to work with it.

i really think the only reason they're so full of bubbles and stones is that it was the end of the pull.
every time i've gotten the regular size 2nds, i couldn't even tell they were seconds.
