Anyone received their SSP burrs for the Flat yet? Any install tips and/or initial impressions vs stock? Mine come this week

I could not find the post about torque settings for the mount screws. Did I dream it up or are there specific torque recommendations for afixing a burr to its platform?

Here you go.

Monolith Flat with new SSP burrs option.

Got my Redspeed SSP burrs today.

I installed them, left the grind setting the same as the Mythos, spun by hand to confirm no contact/interference and ground a dose. I used the exact same beans and basket that I had used earlier today and got the same extraction rate (surprising to me).

The sound was more quiet and the grounds appeared more fluffy.

The flavors seemed better, but without an A/B comparison with a stock Monolith Flat it would be tough to really compare. It did however taste better to me with a bit more flavor definition.

I used 12.5 of Panama Geisha combined with 5.5g of Ethiopian Red Haraaz A+ in a standard Slayer basket which hold 18g and could be dosed higher.

I'll pick mine up end of week!

Are they grinding slower, faster or about the same as stock burrs?

In comparison to the Mythos, they look like they might grab more beans. Is the grind time any faster?
