    How does the alpha beast flip compared to a replicant?
    I have a cf replicant and it flips perfectly for me but I want something to carry with me since I don’t want to damage the cf.
    so like the title says should I get a alpha beast? Thanks

    I prefer the AB to the Rep, but those are my tastes. The only way for you to know what you like is to get an AB and log some time with it. See how it fits into your flipping style. If you got the bread to spend you can pick one up on the secondary market here.
    Cheers!

    IIRC, the winner of last year's Bali-Comp flipped a Rep, so that's probably a ringing endorsement for how well it flips compared to the AB. In case you didn't know it yet, there ARE replacement scales available for the Rep from independent modders on IG that you can use to replace the CF, but I don't really know why you would. That would be a much cheaper option than going out and getting an AB, although adding another bali to the collection is never a bad idea!

    Yea I’ve thought about replacement scales but idk if I want to deal with trying to get the screws out and potentially damaging my cf. I’ve Also considered just getting a beater rep but I would Like to try the AB
