The second quality rods to the original 2020 Test Batch, RX-769B batch date (040220). A transparent gold based color that produces blues and violets. Same formula as RX-769 but different production thermal history.
Our second quality rods are less than perfect in shape. They may be too large, too small, too short, chipped, twisted or have an inclusion. They have all passed both our compatibility test and our color test, just not our pretty rod test.
