    With the last shipment, the molding company supplied some more color samples.

    What do you think - any color you believe is worth a prod run?

    I really like the black laquer style finish of my Rambone, it's hard to see it better in another color. But of the ones sitting there, the two that most catch my eye are the red/burgundy and the tan - from a distance that one almost looks like wood - I don't know if it looks the same in person or not. It is nice to see them in different colors.

    I don't know, I still like my black model.

    Well, since I'm not seeing pink ;) I like the red-ish looking one and I like the tan too.

    I like the blue next to the orange. Oh, and the orange too! My olive one looks good against my tweeds at work but something flashy for the weekend would be good ;)

    Ah that's a hard question....not tan, we had that question in advance (is it the same baby poo colour?). I think the flashy orange would sell good (not for me though, an orange frame distracts me while shooting), but I like the red one.
    And please, revive the clear one!

    Btw, did they change the manufacturing process? They look a bit more glossy than what I have here. Or is it the colours?

    These samples are really not well molded, I'd return every single one if those would be normal production. They lack volume, the sides are dimpled and so on. This is normal, when the material is changed it takes quiet a few repetitions before the molding runs smoothly. For the color samples this isn't done. Just two or three are made from each color.

    The new production run uses a slightly changed material, the frames are a bit more shiny, less rough.

    Purple would be cool. I like the blue and orange (not a Bronco's fan).

    thats a strange orange shade, id like a strong pure orange. But from those you showed the most sellable imo is the dark green and maybe even the white.

    I find the orange really cool. Orange is the best color for survival weapons and tools because if you drop it it is easy to find and recover. I think it's rather silly that all the wannabe survival stuff comes in camo.
