August 18, 2019, 3:56 PM · Hi there,

I'm buying new rosin, and I have to make a choice ethier to buy the evah pirazzi gold or the Kaplan premium dark rosin. Has anybody had experience with the premium Kaplan rosin or the pirrizi gold? How do they compare with other rosins, and what traits do they have?Which do you think would Be better? Btw I am using the thomastic infield blue strings.

One you go above a certain price point, you filter out all the cheap Chinese garbage and any rosin you buy will be good. The only choice you have to make is whether you like a wet or dry feel.
If you have gut or high tension strings, you want wet rosin (dark, soft). If you have very soft strings, you want dry (light, hard) rosin.

I'm afraid I won't be much help in the direct comparison; though I have almost as many rosins as Andrew Victor, it just so happens that those are two I've never tried! :)
