Review: SeaSky Mini Handpiece

I've just tried these mini head handpieces for a few weeks. My early impressions are very good.

Pros: 
  • Very small head.  Not quite as small as a Pico Max, but less than half the size any of the bargain high speeds on ebay.  Easily small enough for pedo. Visibility is accordingly superb.
  • Very bright fiber optic.  My LED couplers shine quite brightly through it.  Pretty slick considering how small it is.
  • Decent Torque.  I've done a few crown preps with it.  There's no replacement for displacement, so it won't be your favorite.  But for limited access and/or pedo, you'll like this.
  • Very light weight.
  • Very good textured grip.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the powder coat finish.   Why can't all handpieces have this?
Cons:
  • Loud - it has a very loud, high pitched whine. Very pure tone, and that's a bad thing...you want the frequencies spread out. A lot of Chinese handpieces do not have very soft o-rings to reduce noise.  The unintentional benefit is less bur wobble and smoother margins.
  • Short shank burs - this is common to small head handpieces.  Start a collection of short shank burs (I often just cut a few down with a 556), because regular shank burs stick out awkwardly from this handpiece. 
  • Coupler not included - you'll need a kavo multiflex coupler, or one of the many compatible ones.
