A random post I found about some differences between Kapton and Kaladex, is this the reason for different distortion measurements (they mention Kapton being noisy when vibrated, but also ideal for this application)?

Danny, (if you care to share this) why did your Neo 3 version use Kapton instead of Kaladex as has been previously used?

I've always appreciated the Neo 3 from BG, in my mind, you can't really do any better without dropping serious coin.

You can't measure distortion with any accuracy outside of an anechoic chamber. And those numbers won't tell you how it sounds.

Kapton handles heat better.

Are there any commercial waveguides that work with the GR Neo 3?

Or suggestions on a homemade one?

I will be testing one shortly.
