These are awesome! I had a pair of convex ones a few years ago in 00, but these are amazing. They're beautifully carved, super shiny, and all those good things about wood. I'd recommend these to all my friends!

I absolutely love these plugs, they look exactly as they did in the photo

These were just as I expected. I really love the fact that they are speckled, but I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that they are concave.

I bought these after losing one of my original coconut plugs (the convex ones). I actually like these better than the convex style for a few reasons: 1) these have more resistance when you put them in, which means they have a better chance of staying put, 2) they have a slimmer line, which makes me feel like my ears aren't fatties, 3) because there's less wood, they're lighter, and 4) I love the way the curve feels under my fingers. I've been pinching these babies all day. Also, the wood on these are so dark! They're absolutely gorgeous, and I'm really glad they didn't end up looking like my old coconut plugs, especially since I found those the day these arrived! :)
All in all, a superb purchase, and I'd deffos buy again.

These are very lightweight and comfortable. Based off of the photos, I was expecting these plugs to be very light with dark patterning for contrast. However, the plugs I received were much darker. Being an organic piece, there is going to be a lot of variance between pairs. I'm sure if I had thought to ask BAF for the lightest pair they had, I would have gotten a pair with more contrast but that's my own fault. The flares are also a little sharp on the edges but as long as they're well lubricated I don't find it to be an issue.
