Great question. The standard weight configuration is a sandblasted brass with antioxidation coating which you can see on the white board, the "upgraded weight" is nickel-plated and polish finish which you can see an example of in the photo showing the internal weight on a black board. That is specifically the silver, while there is also a graphite option. A comparison photo will be posted when I have both of those options back in hand. At the moment, the silver is out with a streamer!

That is silver pvd in the picture? Interesting, it looks gold. Definitely would be interested in seeing the graphite option.

Unfortunately I did not have both in hand at the same time for more than 30 minutes but the boards will be back to me soon for me to grab some pictures! I will be posting more as we get closer.
