First up, our new counterweight has some classic features that you will find in the market today. Delrin body, friction fit bearing, and an end plug are standard. We used an extensive prototyping process to refine the shape to be large enough to make an easy catch and kept the edges smooth to ensure comfort. The friction fit bearing and plug all assemble into a classic looking counterweight. That is where the similarities end.
Using the same technology we used in our Private Reserve begleri, our new counterweights use our proven Control Rod Technology (CRT). This system lets the player fine-tune their weight to exact preferences. As your skill progresses, so too can the counterweight. There are eight machined holes on the bottom of our design. Four of these holes are added to keep the initial weight down, while the remaining four are machined to accept our one gram control rods, thus letting the player adjust the weight to their own skill and comfort levels. At release time, stores will have the option of white, yellow, Black, Red, blue or green. Later releases may involve other colour options. Each counterweight will ship with the body, top plug, a bearing, 4 x one gram control rods, and a hex key.
If this factory setup is not to a player's liking, then we have CRT Megapacks available that include control rods from 3/8" up to 5/8" in length. This extended the already unprecedented level of adjustability, with the weight ranging from 0.3 to 1.2 grams. Just imagine the level of flexibility and unending combinations you can dial in! Get ready to play 5A better! All of this included a sticker and a carrying bag to keep all of the components together.
The base model weighs only 10.6 grams. Having a height of 21mm and a diameter of 24mm the monkey barrel is perfectly contoured to fit your palm and make easy grabs. Each Barral has 4 weight-reducing holes and 4 threaded sockets for the CRT system.
