It kinda has a rainbow effect to it, it's very subtle & you have to be in the right light to see the effect.

Agreed the flip flop white is super cool, looks like a pearl iridescent, but then as it moves in the light it throws off little waves and flashes of different colors. Like Dave said, it is subtle, but there is no way you would fail to notice it. I bet it would look killer under bright stage lights.

Also, I could be wrong, but I believe the FF pink and FF red are two different things? Most of them I've seen are pink flipping to purple, but also I've seen one that is very different - it is a tomato red, almost leaning toward orange, and then it flips to pink and purple. I always assumed this was the FF red, whereas the others that I see more commonly are FF pink, not sure though.

But my personal favorite is the FF blue, so I'm envious of yours of course, especially with that maple board - so tasty!! FF white is close second for my personal fav.
