From the playtmbr website:
"Put it together slim for some looping THIS-A-WAY, or with a wider catch zone for string tricks THAT-A-WAY.

I [Colin Leland of TMBR] can't recall a profile that I've obsessed over as much as this one. It's a simple tapered gap, with a rounded rim. One face is tapered at 3/16", the other at 3/32" depth. This creates a perfect blend of spin time, loop capability, response, and stability. Both configurations share a certain feel, but allow for a good amount of difference in play style.

What side are you on?

That's your choice.

Who am I to judge?

Available in deluxe and standard models.
• Deluxe model (Maple, seen in this exhibit) is sanded to 220 grit, finished with oil/varnish blend, stamped lettering, and packaged in plank packaging with string. The deluxe version was also available in Walnut ($5 more), Cherry ($5 more) , Ash, and Oak.
• Standard model (Rainbow Spectraply) is sanded to 180 grit, natural (no finish) wood, no stamp, and packaged with a standard envelope and string."
