Hi Guys,

Just a quick question regarding phenolic. I live on the East coast of the US and the phenolic I have here (top grade) is a brownish/reddish color. I see the ones used on the RWS are black. I had thought them to be bakelite, but Bob keeps calling it "phenolic". Does phenolic come in different colors and if so, does it indicate strength?

Thanks Bob,
The website gave me the answer and I guess that my age is showing here. Phenolic was marketed under the name "Bakelite" and I remember using the stuff, in my electronics career, as an insulating material. So I guess Bob R and I are both right in the terminology.
