Default DH Skiron

Who has played with it? It looks like a blue-er version of Skilla? I have SO much red striking glass from Brad, but I really am in need of a blue based striking.

Any pics?

I just played with it a bit last week, and yeah it looks like a close relative of Skylla. In the pic: 1X strike and 2X strike spacers and then white core with Skiron encased. I striked/struck (?) then reset, then tried to reduce (nope) and then probably struck again. So maybe thatís why thereís some blueish bits...? I am very intrigued though!

Although I marked the rods, the names confused me (they're too much alike LOL). So I'm not 100% sure which is which; I *think* the front vessel was Skylla and the trim on the back on is Skiron. Sorry bout the crappy pic:

great guys!

Ali I think you are correct, the front reminds me of Skylla from what I can see.

Yvonne, looks like a good range of colors, I will for sure get some.

I do like Skylla, I just have a lot of TNT which this is pretty much exact to for me.
