I'm not sure the market needs another stiff duro unless it's significantly cheaper than the alternatives. I use a ton of Gaffer duro white and is pretty much perfect--crisp dense lines all the way down to tiny threads, doesn't bleed, crispy edges even when exposed on the surface, pulls into great cane, etc. The US-made rods are a tiny bit softer than the older stuff from NZ and I actually like it better since it has all the same benefits but is a bit easier to work with.

I wish Mark the best and don't doubt his white is awesome, I just don't know if there's a market unless it's equally as awesome as Gaffer and significantly less than $70/kg.
