Yes the small posts had a sharp edge to the bottom which caused cutting thru the clear coat,
BUT the CLEAR COATING is the main cause of the problem! all other excuses used for bubbling etc around the posts is just plane Bullshit.

Either Mirco is using a cheaper product now, or not enough hardener added to the 2 pack mix.

Sorry for Jack JJP, but he himself must work this out with Mirco as it's only going to bite him in the butt in the long run.

Quoted from Jared:

Actually, I have worked for Stern for more than 4 years now and still retain my position. I manage all of Sterns social media channels and content. I was once a very active Pinside member, before I joined the industry.

Don't know how.

Quoted from VillaThrills:

Sad that we are now seeing this on the new Stern JP pins. I am out until the industry figures out the new manufacturing process.

Cannot be that hard for the industry to get it right, just go back to what worked before!
It's not rocket science ffs...
