Holy Poli

A while back I asserted in a few places that I thought Polias were just periwinkle Halos with a different spring - but I didn’t really provide anything besides my impression there. I had some switches open and thought it as good a time as any to try and verify that with a bit more certainty - or debunk it.

Well. I fiddled and photographed, and came away with the same impression. I’ll share with you what I found here, starting with some comparison photos of the stems:

Side by side, the similarities are clear.

Any differences I can see take squinting; I’d bet they’d pass each-other’s spec tolerances.

Just looking at these fuzzy photos complete with traces of carpet yarn, what do you guys think?

Close race. I can’t see any difference outside of color. I thought the poles might be varied, but same.

In the middle pic the Polia stem seems to have a sharper bump, but beyond that they look identical in the other pics. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if these are made from the same molds as Halo stems.

Honestly, I’m just excited to have a Halo stem recolor, at least it’ll help mix up the color combos for Yok “holy pandas” if they’re pretty much the same.

Def. I especially like these in the Red housings.
