  1. 1. What is your least favorite '51' Aerometric color?



Recommended Posts

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?

I rocked the vote!

is it because you dislike Rare?

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:

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

 

One of these days perhaps...

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.

Cocoa with a Lustraloy cap boring? I don't think pens are boring, but some people are boring.

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.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
