Yes....porcelain media have to be broken in. Have you at Rio ever considered processing prepared media ?......you would sell more of it in the long run once people discovered the advantages. Too many people get turned off by the prepping aspect of it. As a matter of fact, I don't ever recall having seen even a rudimentary protocol accompanying the raw media.
Ron, this is a GREAT idea! I hope that the folks at Rio (and
elsewhere) will consider it.
