well, bob is working on that, however bob is using a thicker tab then highroller, so really his problem is that his tabs arent thick enought to support 4 lights on a bar going accrossed without bouncing


however some will say bob's tabs are a bit overkill, but wheres the problem in that, cause its not going to bounce
