Surprised it looks like no one has mentioned that Wessex has their own Superbone. How does that stack up to the Holton?

Most of the comments in this thread were created before Wessex was a company. There is more information on them in this thread.

Seems a actually to be the opposite, Matt, as the just as many (or more, I think!) of the replies were made in 2018  :D :D

I'll check out that thread though. I haven't looked too much into Holton's original Superbone myself though it's always been an interesting specimen if for nothing other than it being awesomely gimmicky  :-P

Isn't it just a Mendini with different engraving?

I'm intrigued by it, but it looks like the valve cluster is the same one used by Mendini and Cecilio, which raises the question--how did they get the bore through the valves to be .525? Or is there a restriction through the valve section?

hah, okay 57% were at the time of your post  ;-)

To contribute actual content: It's definitely something that I've thought about.  I have so many other things that are on my list of actual needs if I want to be more productive and a sueprbone unfortunately doesn't fit that bill.  I have two king small bore rotors (3bf and 607f) that I was collecting as I see them... my original intention was to put an F attachment on my Shires.  It did occurr to me that I'm 2/3 on the way to having a Bb cluster... as ridiculous as that would be.  But now that I think about it, since its a novelty thing anyway it might be better when I get a few hundred to spare down the road selling one of the rotors and using the rest to buy the superbone since it's at such a low price point. 

What a time to be alive!
