I'm just wondering whether the threading on the Loom and Basic sections are identical?

I have a Loom that I like, but occasionally have trouble with its grip in sweaty weather. The Basic on the other hand might be too heavy for me, and by all accounts, is not meant to be used posted. So I was thinking about the possibility of buying a Basic and transplanting its section + cap on the Loom.

If any kind soul here has both, could you please check whether this would work?

Thanks!

Hi Mandar. Sadly they aren't identical.

 

The Basic has male threads on the barrel and the Loom has male threads on the section.
