A few.

1. Put TG in small bucket of water, then freeze it solid. Chip it out with an ice pick, and go from there.

2. A " crud/mud/blood" test. ( Get it dirty using several different types of crud like clay, sand,etc.......


Quick question.....
Have you weighed the TG yet? How does it compare weight wise to one of the older TG's?

Yes Neil I do. Please find out exactly what is is made of? It isn't polymer plastic I assure you
You call it "plain" plastic which it is not! Yes it isn't metal but it isn't just plastic either?

You're right-it's "long strand glass filled polymer". It weighs about 2/3 what the alloy 1 weighs.
