Btw we gave John E two different discs to choose from and he decided on a the speed 13 version which is beefy. You will also notice that the Liquid plastic is harder than our current Liquid Line but not too soft. In the future all alliance discs will have a harder feel but all non alliance discs will have our softer version of liquid plastic.

Either way pick one up and help support John E McCraybon his touring efforts. He's deserved this kind of support for a long time and we are happy we can help him out.
Yikun dictates the molds salient uses and salient has the option of changing the feel of the plastic before rebranding???

Get a blank one and do it up with a Prince dye!

What is the country of origin of the Salient molds?

Are you molding some here and getting blanks for some molds from them or they your manufacturer/supplier?

Fantastic idea! I have a great old rolling stone image of him that I could make a dye from. The stock fire house stamp is pretty sweet too though.
