After 3 weeks of driving around with it to NoVa and back and then around town through snow and rain and ice, this is what the Catco one looks like:
If you look closely on it, it seems like the styrofoam has sucked itself in or something. The varnish on the outside hasn’t gone anywhere and the paint hasn’t flaked off or anything. So overall it looks fine, just a little washed out and I’m suspecting and assuming that it is the styrofoam ball itself in response to the weather. I’m going to try out the tooth one next.
