Hi All-

 

I got to thinking the other night (while trying to fall asleep) what was my least favorite '51' Aero color and thought it would be interesting to see what all of you thought... so, which is your least favorite?

My favorite is Cocoa, but only because I'm too tightfisted to spring for a Buckskin Beige.

 

One of these days perhaps...

Normally I would have said black.  Because I have too many black pens.  But since I actually have *two* black 51s (an Aerometric and a 51 Vac) I can't say that.  Fortunately, I did have another (better) option -- Cocoa.  I think it's a hideous color.  Possibly not as hideous as Buckskin Beige or Yellowstone, but awful.  And apparently (at least at the moment) I seem to be moving with the tide....

But are there people out there who actually dislike Plum?  Apparently so....  :huh:

Buckskin would likely be a rather expensive pen in an Aero.

No, it's because Cocoa just isn't an attractive color, therefore it's my least favorite. That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to find a nice example for a reasonable price.

Cocoa with a Lustraloy cap is really a boring combination, IMO.

I like all the colors except black and teal.  Teal is a muddy greenish blue.  Black seems funereal.

 

The rest are decent to attractive.

Hah, yes indeed! 

 

Least favorite is probably black, although I have a nice example in the pen case.

 

Of all colors I do like Yellowstone but I find myself wishing they'd gone with a burnt orange 'sandstone' or a pale red color as well.  Ah well, there's always Kullock!

I have to agree completely. For some reason Buckskin brings back some memories in childhood. Yes I am aware it only was produced in Vacs. Wishful thinking.

None of them.

 

I like the 'Bloody British Burgundy', not the dull, grim, muddy, colour called 'Burgundy' in the US, which is why I didn't vote.

After that, I do like Plum.

 

Regards,

 

Richard

That's funny-- I voted Cocoa because it was as close as I could get to Buckskin in the poll.  Happy news, in that we are not competing for the resource!

 

Actually, I've already got the colours I like best (Blue Cedar, Forest Green and Burgundy) so I'm not getting in anyone else's way, either.
