H-Kote stainless steel rims are far superior to gold in terms of durability and value. Over time gold plating will wear off or migrate into the silver plate, losing its playing benefits. H-Kote should last almost indefinitely and it is very bio-compatible. Customers report H-Kote offers playing comfort that is at least equivalent to and in many cases better than gold plate.
Whether a person has been playing 2 years or 30 years, brass allergies can occur at any point in one's career. What begins as a minor irritation can become debilitating relatively quickly. The H-Kote stainless steel rims have helped to restore comfort and security to allergic players.
Stainless steel rims are available with H-Kote titanium nitride coatings in black or gold color.
All rims join with cups having a .660 junction and are standard Giardinelli threads.
