    wanted: jns 1000 stone

    looking for a 1k splash n go, this seems to fit the bill so send me an offer if you've got one you're not using. going to be using it in conjunction with a jKs 3k as an easy peasy 1-2 combo.

    Unfortunately it's a soaker. Not splash and go.

    IME it works very well as a splash and go stone. It uses a little water for the first couple minutes, but I haven't noticed any real difference in performance either way. I usually run it under the faucet for a minute or two and have at it.
    Either way, it's a very good stone, and I'm keeping it for a while, sorry panda.

    its absolutly not "splash and go" , jns1k drink alot of water.
    maybe you dont try another GOOD coarse stones, like Chocera or King hyper.

    I find that mine is a pretty hefty guzzler of water also, not that I mind that in the least, but I would not consider it a splash'n'go stone.

    Perhaps try just a two minute soak and report back on results. Don't knock ot til you try it, I'll find out for myself when it arrives.

    I'm not sure I follow what you're getting at concerning the GOOD coarse stones. I just sold a chosera 400, which I thought was a very nice stone. Maybe our opinions of what constitutes a "lot" of water are different.
    Either way, I get good results from the JNS 1K, as I did from the chosera 400.
