Hello everyone!

2. Silicone handles

We chose the silicone handles in blue color as it seemed more descreet than the purple ones. They are handy and hold the lids very firmly.

4. Polishing kits

The felt pieces for polishing are laser cut and comes together with polishing paste. Though most likely you would never need to use it for the GR2 spheres because during the campaign we reached the stretch goal - all the copper and brass parts are coated with protective layer. Since the polishing kit was promissed from the beginning of our campaign we decided to keep it included.

Updated timeline

In previous update we explained that we need to coat the copper lids by ourselves therefore we might expect some small delay. The process is a bit longer than we expected and we needed to recoat a part of brass lids as well. We could rush the process but we really want to bring the best quallity to every sphere. It might take a bit longer but at the end you will be much happier with the result;) 

As much as i wanted to keep in timeline and ship out on November i should admit that there will be a small delay. The coating will be finished next week and after that we will assemble all packages. The delay puts the shipping from November to December. I hope you can understand that and thanks so much for your patience! We promise that you won't regret it;)

Best regards and till the next update,

Kristoph and team

      My coworker saw me reading this update, they peaked over my should and asked what the butt plug was for.

      Being a backer is more than happiness. How serious, how detailed are your updates and information.
      This is a great pleasure, and I should have backed more than one sphere.
      Thank you so so much.
