Default Shiny WestSide VIP

So I've got this Westside Sword in VIP plastic, and It's a little subtle but it is kind of shiny. I've never seen a disc like it before, the best way to describe it is by comparing the shine to the shine you see when you drop gasoline in water. My sword looks very similar, it's red with kind of a gold reflectivity about it. Is this a production effect, or maybe a similar phenomenon to natural beauties? Or is my disc a one of a kind?

I've had a suspect, fury, warship and tursas in that red blend with a shimmer, it's sweet

I've seen several red VIP swords with that effect. Pretty cool. Nice and grippy also.

Yep, both my red Opto Fury and VIP Tursas are like this. And Stu is right, they are super grippy.

I glad to hear there are a decent amount out there, I think it looks amazing, and I'm glad it's a reproducible effect

This is what mine looks like:


The gold and bronze highlights are very noticeable. The only downside about these discs are the finger print magnet effect.

This is what it looks like straight on, just a nice red.
