Search for the WORST, UGLIEST, LAME, HORRENDOUS SWIRL.

Hi, I ve seen a lot of swirls (about 10 in person) and countless in pictures. I find my self interested as much by horrible swirls as I do by the amazing ones!

I own 2 multicolours (one MKR and one ATD). I like the swirl of the japanese better, and the coulours of the ATD better. None of them has the greatest swirl, but neither of them qualifies for this thread.

Im looking for a swirl that ll make you puke here!

Are you the proud owner of one

Post a picture of it

I don't own this I pulled it of Rich's site (sorry mate), I really don't like Japanese swirls, some are nice but most make me wanna puke, just look at the bottom left hand side of the body:

edit: made this a link instead of showing the picture coz it took up so much space and isn't very nice to 56k users.

I ve seen a ATD on Richs site that almost all black, that is one of ugliest I ve seen. The other one must be an MKR I saw some time ago in Buenos Aires, almost completely yellow one with a bunch of orange strips (and some small green spots). I dont have a picture of ot unfortunately.

One of my UVs is pretty guly also. I dont know how to upload pictures here, but if you (Rich )want to upload a pic of Hugh along with the other I mentioned, it ll be great!

that top MKR can be saved by using a non-clear pickguard, cause teh deadspots in that area kill the swirl.

hugh looked better in B&W... that is really bad... glen

Well I know this is a pretty subjective issue. So, lets put it this way:

People, please post come pics of the swirls that you feel are among the ugliest you ve ever seen!

If only I had a picture of the UV I saw in Buenos Aires long ago...... man, there is just no way you could ve beat that ugly piece of puke
