Not all these pens are used by Adult Males. This is a great color of my young Neice. She's in the 8th grade and in the midst of an everything must be turquoise phase..lol..
That's interesting -- I feel almost the exact opposite. The 580 "turquoise" isn't turquoise at all. It's a very light baby blue color. While this ECO color is bright, that's what a "turquoise" stone actually looks like.
I'm a nearly 40 year old male, and I think the color is just fine. I guess different strokes for different folks.
I think I understand what you mean, but I think the colour may be a little deceptive because of the shine of the aluminium, which looks like it tones it down very slightly. I think it has a much nicer appearance, more professional maybe. I tend to prefer more muted and less bright in-your-face colours.
You got me curious anyway, so I took the image from the Goulet website of the TWSBI turquoise 580 AL and loaded it into an image manipulation app to see what it's colour is.
And it's almost pure turquoise as you can see, very slightly closer towards green than blue. The actual hue is probably almost the same on both pens.
