After trying out the 1, 3 and 5k stones in Marko's passaround, Schtoo mentioned that the line also included a 1.2k stone that had all of the advantages of a Shapton only better. Being weak, I bought the stone. When it arrived, there was a crack in the stone and he prompty replaced it. Now, I have two with a green light to do whatever with the cracked one. So, if you want to try out this stone, reply to this thread. The stone has been drying out for a couple of days already. I will ship it off as soon as the list is finalized or the mass stops dropping.
To the mods: If this passaround is a problem, please delete it. Maybe this should be an addendum to the Sigma Select II thread in Marko's subforum.
