black vicious is completely different than red/clear. gripwise: black>red>clear. Blood orange grip has a tendency to be brittle, but has less grip than red and black vicious so it's easier to Ollie.
My Tessy has vicious. It's pretty hash/good.
what's the application?
@SteveLee772 than you must have some tough skin. I got baby skin hands. That crab tears my hands up.
I'm gonna do my research before I buy, and get back to y'all for any additional concerns. Thanks so much dudes! You guys made awesome suggestions/comments about stuff I didn't even know about! Very cool.
