New Deck from Gemini in 2004????
New Deck from Gemini in 2004????
Posted by Gizmo on November 9, 2003 :

I heard about this at PLASA and figured it was time to find out a little more.

At PLASA, Gemini had put a 4.5kg torque motor in one of it's standard decks just show how much pull it had (and it did pull). A few quiet words with a Gemini manager gleaned that the new deck was a departure style wise (curves if I remember rightly) from the norm but was going to be a pro-level deck.

A determined effort this week by yours truly was met with the usual "sworn to secrecy" line. But it seems that a working model will be available in January with photos and press releases to follow. Sorry people - no details on design, features etc at all.

It's good that more people are entering the pro-level deck arena, as
more choice means more competition means possible lower prices! smile.gif Always good

However I can't help but start to wonder "how much Torque do you actually you need?"

More torque is good for slipmat manufacturers though. But when people still reckon 1210's rule with it's miniscule torque, you got to wonder what's the point? Why not put more R&D into other features.

Yeah i have to say i've never felt there to be a problem with the torque on Technics - it's probably not something that would have much sway over a purchase decision for me (unless it was significantly worse than Technics).
Also i think a lot of these torque figures are for the initial start-up torque so are a bit misleading. The sustained torque is usually quite similar.

LOL @ Giz.

Werd! Deft, techincal stat's can be misleading, i suppose the only
answer is to try stuff out before you buy it and see what you are
comfortable with.
