Yes, it really is a cactus needle cantilever

I had a long talk with the ever affable Mr. Ledermann about this at the NY Audio Show In April. He said that cactus needles have a number of advantages over the materials commonly used for cantilevers. According to Peter, metal and jewel cantilevers are alive with energy reflecting up and down the tube - energy that he says can be measured. A cactus needle on the other hand is both stiff (it's formed from longitudinal stacked columnar fibers) and self - damping (the fibers are connected with desicated resin). The Hyperion will cost $7500 but that price includes free retipping for life.
