Default Re: Buying a custom DW set

If you compare them to clear Ambassadors or G1s for example, while they are technically all medium heads, the DW heads are nowhere near the same. They are way thicker and stiffer.

I would have totally expected them on the PDP line, but would have expected DWs to warrant real heads when shipped.
Many thanks, Az! I'll take a closer look at the G1's. They'll make for a good starting point for me.
