From what I have seen the gloss effect is strongest on the scrown mold. I don't think there will be much of a gloss effect on the csq so in terms of gloss you will be closer to the a mold in your sample sets.Question for @David Spragg or the collective group on colors. I bought an inlaid scrown sample direct from CPC last year, but given a purchase wasn’t imminent, I passed them on to someone else that could use them. Before getting rid of them, I picked up a sample that was likely at least 2-3 years old, matched them up to mark them. For some of the colors, I found the difference between them to be noticeable. The scrown chips looked brighter/glossier than the older A Mold. What I am trying to determine is, how much of the difference is the mold (scrown vs A mold) and how much is the aging of the older sample (or other factors I am not considering). I did not oil either set which I know also is another major variable. Both were as I received them. I have included a picture below as an example.
I will hopefully be placing an order on CSQ later this year. I am just trying to get a best sense of what colors would look like for my order.
Any advice/comments from your experience would be appreciated.View attachment 396246View attachment 396248
Color wise your scrown samples are more current. The biggest difference in the last few years are the dayglow colors have become brighter.
So if you have dayglow colors in your lineup try to invision scrown colors less the gloss.
Hope that helps and anyone feel free to chime in. I have four different color sets over three molds and that is what I have noticed.
