@madmacsback Oh heck why not...ask him what's wrong with the picture. We can all sit back and laugh at his response for a day or two...before somebody clues him in. Do it...fire it up. Don't worry, you'll just be maybe the 28th person that he starts attacking.

Photo of how bright the light is on the ZMF II. And proving the point of the brightness of the ZMF II with the photo.

And I watch the video. And Shelby did not cover how to turn on the feature. That turns the ZMF II into a lighthouse. gringringrincry

And yes I know exactly how you got the photo, and where you got the photo from fraudster. And yes you do not own one...cry

And I do own one and I do know first hand how bright the ZMF II is in reality.

Here is a video showing the real brightness of the light.

@madmacsback As you can see...when proven wrong by his own posts...the rational thought process starts to break down and the excuses and deflections start to fly. Kinda reminds me of my teenagers back some years ago.

I am not sure why you think the LED lights are bright. You can see the light.But you are not lighting up even a drak room with the light.

And do you know what is even brighter then the LED move indicator. The LED screen itself showing the clock time. From the ZMF II for example.

If you are that sensitive to light you would want a clock with only a LCD screen. That uses reflective light to display the clock times.

@madmacsback Oh look, he stopped posting that picture. Could it be he has finally realized the "irony".

A member was saying that some of these lights were bright and whether it could be turned off during tournaments. ( Link to that thread ) And his response above criticized the poster, saying

"And do you know what is even brighter then the LED move indicator. The LED screen itself showing the clock time. From the ZMF II for example."

And yet, even now, his own pictures prove him wrong. And it just snowballs from there. I mean, shooting himself in the foot with his own photos...that's gotta hurt.

It’s the season for Noj and Yuletide greetings.

Here is my Noj Dubrovnik II in European Boxwood with Red Stain for the dark pieces. The board is a Best Chessmen Ever in Green. And the clock is a V-Tek 300 in Black with Red buttons.

BrownishGerbil

Love the deep Burgundy staining, gives depth to it. Great set!

Bamboo58

Nice board.

Yenster1

Yeah I have to agree with BrownishGerbil, that is a gorgeous burgundy color for the dark pieces.

Eyechess

Well, here is tonight’s set. It is a Liberty Series from the House of Staunton. Actually this set is one that Frank Camaratta sold to me well over 20 years ago. Yes, this is an old set that I used for blitz and skittles a lot over the years. It is Rosewood and Boxwood.

BrownishGerbil

Very nice! I was wondering: did the rosewood darken substantially over the years or did the pieces start out as such? I think you'd be hard pressed to find such evenly coloured rosewood these days.

Eyechess

Yes, it did darken quite a bit. I guess I should expect it but prices have increased substantially over the years, especially this place.

Pamvo7

Wow, rosewood darkened a lot over the years. Was it brownish rosewood like Sheesham or Bud Rosewood/Padauk when you bought them?

Eyechess

It was actual Rosewood that is now very difficult to get. I have some other sets in Rosewood and they get darker as well.

RussBell

From the photos it looks more like ebony, i.e., black. I don't believe rosewood would darken to the extent that it turns black. I have 20+ year-old guitars with rosewood backs and sides which have not darkened to the extent that it is obvious to the casual observer.

Eyechess

I assure that it is Rosewood, and regular Rosewood at that.

It does look to be black in the photos. The lighting is fluorescent and the lights are a bit of distance from the pieces, giving it that look.

The pieces don’t look that dark in real life.

That set has seen a lot over the years. I have other sets of the same Rosewood from Frank. We will have to see what they look like when I bring them and take photos.
