– Comment :
If you have access to Japanese stuff, you should be able to make the VSG-3 pens for about 650 yen (around 6-7usd). The stuff is easy to find and the process of making is very easy for a G3.
Spin wise, its light-medium weight is great and it is well balanced. However, if you like SCs with high momentum (like Seven G3), I won’t recommend you this mod.
