I blamed the new torch, dual fuel vs hot head.

Then one day I happened to use a really really OLD SIS stringer I had made many years ago. It was in a tray of old twisties I was trying to use up.

I had my gorgeous webby reactive SIS back!

After some extensive testing, I discovered all the newer Dk Ivory I have gives the nasty grey reaction. Only the old egg shaped rods give the nice webby reaction.

I guess I'm trying to say, if you are not succeeding at SIS it might not be your fault.

I'm so glad you posted this! I thought it was my fault!
