finish of deadly wind barrels

Ok those of you who have a deadly wind barrel, what finish would you say it is? Gloss or matte finish? Thanks.

More of a matte finish.
The carbon fibre is matte/not reflective. But the aluminium threading is closer to gloss.

The CF on the deadly wind is definitely a semi-gloss while the base is a gloss finish.

^^agreed. carbon fiber on outside of barrel is semi-gloss. Inside of barrel is *HIGH* polish resin.
but why the interest in the shiny-ness of DW barrels?

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

Knowing Justin he's planning something crazy.

Or he's gonna put a DW on his new ccm and can't decide on a gloss or dust finish.

The carbon fiber compliments either dust of gloss finishes really well in my opinion. It goes with everything. I agree with it being a semi gloss though.

Actually if I can find a jcurt 90* frame in gloss black I was gonna have him make me a set of panels out of carbon fiber sheet. I'm trying to find a sheet that would match a deadly wind barrel.

I agree with the semi-gloss. Also this is what you would need for a curt frame. Not bad a 6x6 is only $32.
Carbon Fiber Sheets > 1/8" Carbon Fiber Sheets
