Sebenza Heat Treatment and Starbenza Question.

    It is my understanding that around the middle of 2013 the heat treatment for Sebenzas was altered to produce a higher hardness rating. Do the current Starbenzas from Wilson combat have the higher hardness rating? I guess I am asking how new are the Wilson Combat Sebenzas? New production or left over from several years ago?

    Thank you everyone.

    Ive heard that about the heat treat as well. It may or may not be.
    Could always send Wilson Combat an email and ask for the DOB :D

    Not a bad idea! Anything newer that 2013 should have the new heat treat.

    Call up wilson combat and ask for something with a newer birth date. Nobody could tell you this answer.

    I decided to pick up a plain Insingo. In fact I need to swing by the post office today to pick up the package.
