Default Reichenbach Dark Pink Coral (R-731)

Anyone have some of this color? Any issues I need to know about? I just bought half a rod that I'm going to pull down. The color is so pretty, I'm almost hesitant to mess with it, lol!

Pics would be great if you have them.

According to OCR is an "off batch" and is in the 35% off but it looks like it may just come in that big bunking rod. Sad....cuz it's purity.

No, it comes in cane, too. http://www.glasscolor.com/products/d...D=111&pID=1900 I just got the rod because it was 35% off and I don't mind pulling it down. Don't know when I'll be able to hop on the torch, but it sure is pretty to look at. Even Ty likes it. He told me I should buy more, lol!

I need to go look for videos of pulling down rod, that looks intimidating to melt & pull evenly. But pretty color

Is it consistent if making small beads, or is it streaky? I don't do streaky if it is a single color. Like petroleum green, and I refuse to make plain spacers with it and other colors that have that line in them. I'm just picky about some things, I guess.

I've noticed with some of the other r-pinks (o-razz) that they can detrify a bit, and or reduce. Kinda the edp thing but more tame able.

I have this one. It is a striker, so it starts as softer pink and strikes more toward the color of the club. No devit, slight streaking, and treat it like a coral, clear coring if you want to encase it. It is a bit like raspberry, but more purple.
