Holy moly. That finish! Sah much thrutching and grunting in the off-width. You know you’re warming up at Frog when the 15 has that much grunting and chicken-winging in it. Mint.

This was my first lead at frog 3 years ago. So to come back and not be scared out of my mind was good. Top is still a grovel

Definitely harder than Bad Blues, but not as hard as Devils Wart... Screwy Frog grades. New guide is on the money with 16, methinks.
