– Comment :
If you have access to Japanese stuff, you should be able to buy the VSG-3 pens for about 650 yens (around 6-7usd). The stuff is easy to find and the process of making is very easy for a G3.
Spinning speaking, its light-medium weight is great and it is well balanced. However, If you like SC with high momentum (like Seven G3), I don’t advise you this mod.
