[/table] [/expand] [expand title=”Synopsis” trigclass=”expandTitle”] What’s the best aspect about this product?
- Gives a similar feeling of slate stones without the hefty price tag.
What is the weakest aspect of this product?
- Though this is to be expected of someone who started out using yunzi stones, I found them to be a little slippery at first. However, it didn’t take long before I acclimated to the stones and had no trouble using them.
Is it durable?
- Based on my usage so far, I see no reason why they wouldn’t last a lifetime if used properly. Doesn’t seem like it would chip easily.
- Easy to clean and a pleasure to use.
- If you like stones that are glossy and shine in the light, this is a great set for you.
- For those who are not yet able to afford a set of slate and shell stones, this is a great set that gives a similar feel (i.e., smooth) and look (i.e., glossiness) without the hefty price tag.
As someone who started out using yunzi stones, I was a bit surprised at how slippery it was when I first started using it. Stones would slip out of my fingers constantly. However, after a bit of patience and realizing I couldn’t grip them with the same force I normally gripped yunzi stones, it came a lot easier and they did not fall out nearly as often.
At the end of the day, this is a beautiful set that any player would be delighted to have if they are looking for stones with a glossy finish that shine in the light. Highly recommended and as always, let me know if you have any questions about the set!
