When I first unpacked the G2 I remember thinking that it could really have potential to be a top performer.
Fin spacing was quite uneven with FPI counts between 11 and 14, with the majority of spots I measured being closest to 13 FPI.
The G2 is painted in a satin black and the finish is flawless, silky smooth and I really can not fault the quality of the finish. It is as good as you could possibly hope for. The G2 feels heavy and is solidly constructed and I remained impressed.
The ports options are excellent, having a choice of horizontal or vertical placement of fittings in when installed in either orientation. The G2 was also one of the few radiators to have a bleeder port on the opposite end – very handy for vertical installations
Let’s see how it performs…..
