Compared to the BCG the SLX now feels really tinny and grinding is a little tough. I do miss the finer grind, so probably need to buy a fine plate for the BCG at some point.
Putting this here since it is a comparison of two grinders, instead of putting in their individual threads.
Hopefully the right place.
Anyhow, here are a few comparisons of grinds using the BCG and Flowermill with similar amounts of same strain.
For the Smallest Size (FlowerMill) vs. Fine (Brilliant Cut Grinder), they had very similar outcomes - both very consistent in size and fluff:
For the Middle Size (FM) and Medium (BCG), it is also pretty similar although I find the BCG to have more consistent grinds:
For the Largest size (FM) vs Coarse (BCG) there were a few nugs that got through the FM - (upper left corner is visible one), so again the size of ground herbs is much more consistent with the BCG. Then again, I don’t use coarse much, so maybe the little nugs are a good thing for some people:
Finally, because I happen to have 4 strains to play with, I did a comparison with 2nd smallest size (FM) with the Medium (BCG). The FM came out finer than the Med BCG, and they were both consistent grinds. I did have a decent sized chunk that just would not go through the FM (I repositioned it a couple of times, but it just would not break up and fall thru holes) which is probably by design, but if it was in BCG it probably would have been shredded without issue and blended in with rest of herb:
I really do like the FM, especially how easy it is to store all the different sized screens, but after only a couple of grinds, it is almost ready for a cleaning, which the BCG won’t need cleaning for a much longer time.
But it is also much easier to clean/brush out the top part of the FM than the BCG without making a mess.
The FM has consistent grinds with the 3 smallest sizes, not so much with the largest 2 sizes while the BCG always seems to grind very consistent results regardless of screen size.
