The craftsmanship is really great. Screws together perfectly like my other Chain Gang barbell.
The coating seems to react weird with iodine-based sanitizers. When I had it in my little sanitizing jar I could see what look like poofs of smoke in the solution. When I took it out I had a metallic-black/brown barbell. So dont use iodine-based sanitizers on these(I'm not even sure if iodine-based sanitizers are okay for this kind of thing, it's just what I had).
Unfortunately my stupidity forced me to select the wrong gauge when ordering(stretching from a 6 to a 4 in an apadravya piercing is a real bitch, lol) so I cant comment on the fit, but I'm sure it would have been perfect like my other barbell from here.
I'm giving it a rating of 4.5 because I dont know if I really like this coating stuff, even though it's really the only way to go if you want black jewelry.
