    Rupes 15 MkII shipping

    I did the pre-order for the 15 MkII at the beginning of December and it arrived at my office yesterday. The new rubber bumper and hand molds look really nice. I can't wait to test out the performance on the new motor. My only minor gripe is they should have designed a second rubber bumper near the speed dial to protect that area from wear. Here's the picture.Rupes 15 MkII shipping-imageuploadedbyagonline1453833470-677454-jpg

    Does the new Rupes have indents on the speed dial?

    The speed control is similar the the MkI. There are no preset detents.

    Looks like the original, but does it click like the Boss? Sometimes you can brush up against the wheel and the speed will change without you wanting it to. Having a indent/detent keeps this from happening.

    Can't help you there as I don't have a boss to compare it to.

    As you turn the speed dial, does it click in place or does it turn smoothly from number to number?
