Default OBT in Red and Black? Let us Know What You Think.

You can now get the Open Benchtable in red and black. Let us know what you think. Could you be tempted with these new colors?

As die-hard Liverpool fan, I'd have to choose red of course. Could be good for ROG fanboys too I guess.

What kind of finish is it, anodized, powdercoated, etc?

Good to know. I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want a second OBT though, especially with the price being 33% higher than the "we aren't planning any other colours" original colouration (I really really wanted black when it went live, but that desire has been tempered a decent amount now that I have one). Are there any actual photos of the new colour offerings, or just renders so far? Additionally, will the screws and whatnot also be anodized to match the main portion?

For the moment all the images posted are renders - that's correct.

For pictures, we've only got for the moment these few shots of the red. That sort of gives a good idea of what it's actually like.





Screws stay in the original colors. Managing additional SKUs of colored screws wasn't making much sense + it actually looks pretty cool with them sort of standing out on the body of the colored tables.
