A good choice. Long or standard? They ( the long) can also be had with a trap. But as noted in my post above....one guy got his and it was in backwards until I figured it out and corrected it.

It is easy to dry, but will soak again in minutes. A watertrap makes a huge difference in how long it takes until moisture problems occur and then until they recur. When you're doing the long grinds, learning piobaireachd and so forth, I find the watertrap on my Walsh invaluable.

I like my long Naill PC with the watertrap built in. I get quite a bit of dribble out of it by the end of a hour's practice.
