    It does look a little weaker than the old one especially through the middle section, not sure that the fanned salutes work that well either.

    The standard Herc is a great piece, just leave it alone I say o_O

  7. Is the difference 1.3g versus 1.4g? The new Hercules is 1.4g I think but this is listed as 1.3g?

    Existing Hercules is 1.4G, this LTD Edition is 1.3G and as such it was supposed to be louder, but it wasn't.

    That's interesting Pete; I think it shows how far 1.4 has progressed since 2007.

    Last year I fired 1.4 Daytona followed immediately by 1.3 Rio Grande, and bore size notwithstanding there wasn't a huge difference in 'loudness'. (Clearly 1.3 allows for smaller bore, but quality 1.4 can be just as pokey).

    I think the 1.3G version being quieter was a manufacturing mistake in China. It is supposed to be louder than the existing 1.4G version and is being reworked for delivery of the actual product. So it will be a bit of a punt.

    I won't be taking any though as price aside there is no caged version of Hercules LTD so more hassle to store.

    So it's in the hands of the Chinese.....

    Yup, sure everything will be fine!

    Funny thing is products are sometimes puffed up for a demo night, not the other way around ;)

    Hmmm, an interesting thread.... must say I expected rave reviews for this, shame that Brothers seem to have missed the mark :(
