Probably a stupid question but how do you tell if retainers are titanium. A guy is selling a set for pretty cheap used with 4k on them. I would never put used springs in my car but retainers should be a big deal right?

Non-mag

Titanium is non magnetic and it weighs about 1/2 of what steel weighs. Someone else may be able to comment on their use.

They will be a brownish gray (more gray), and if you bounce them around in your hand you will swear they are made out of foam or something because they will weigh almost nothing.

Cool I thought they were non magnetic, I'll try the magnet test when I get them :)

Thanks!
