    Back in the game with Noob DAYTONA 116500 904L & VRF 116610 LV GREEN CERAMIC 904L

    Evening all. Been out of the rep game for well over a year now and thought I might start playing again.

    After a lot of reading, which only led to confusion I ordered a Noob 116500 white dial and the VRF 116610 LV.

    I know these are not perfect, but a pretty solid start back in to the world of reps.

    Looking forward to comparing the feel and finish of these reps with my gen 2014 SD4k and Sky Dweller when it arrives(12 months on wait list already and it wont be here till September/October)

    Took about 2 days from payment for QC photos to arrive and I have approved them.

    All looked pretty good. Impressed with the 116500 dial, only real let down was the bezel and that's not too bad in real life. Understand I need the ARF one if I want to change out.

    Will post photos when they arrive.

    It's good to be back

    The general case shape of the Noob 116500 is not really right either, although they had improved their dial on the V2, I would wait for the rumoured ARF V3 apparently with working 4130 before I buy anything.

      I didn’t hear anything about it. You mean that ARF is going to make their own super clone ? (As noob with their SA4130?)

        Any idea when that could get released?

          Rumored? never heard of that before. What's your source?

          Noob invested millions in developing the 4130, and it took them more than 2 years, i don't think ARF would release its so soon, if ever.

            True. But there will always a v2 or v9. Not looking for perfection, just some fun

                  Noob would price theirs around sub 400 usd and that would kill arf's profit should they decide to do so.

                    Daytona has arrived and pretty amazed by it. LV should be here tomorrow.
                    Will post photos over Easter weekend
