For sure?Paulsons are the superior chip for sure,
Paulsons have more and better clay colors, for sure. That’s about the only “for sure” I’d concede.
Paulson and CPC clays feel a bit different, to the experienced hand. Seems like more people prefer Paulson clay over CPC clay, but I’m not sure how much of that is honest evaluation and how much is bandwagon. Ignoring the heavier, softer leaded clay that Paulson stopped using 30 years ago, I think the two clays are closer than most people want to admit. But general consensus is that the CPC is a bit harder and wears slower.
As far as mold goes, 90% of the Paulsons out there are on the RHC mold, which some people like, but probably a lot more people don’t care for it, and many of us flat out hate it. CPCs are available on like 15 different molds, all with different characteristics.
CPCs can be produced with shaped inlays, and on many of the molds, they’ll be textured. Paulson inlays are only available in the shape of round, and if you want textured inlays, you’ll need a time machine.
I go on this rant about once a month, and I have no plans to stop. You can point to positives and negatives with each brand, but saying that Paulsons are for sure the superior chip is flat out ignorant.
I’m not a expert by any means as far as compression molded clay but from what I’ve felt and handled; Paulsons win on all points over CPC except that cpc can be customized. They feel superior they sound superior, they’re colors are FAR superior.
This is not saying cpc is bad by any means, but I don’t think cpc can compete unless you talk about customs which also will cost you a shit ton of money if you want nice spots even if you’re skilled and creative. The LVL 1 spot chips are $2 a chip almost and you get a chip that really don’t bring that much out in terms of design. Yeah that’s my opinion
