It's the same in that they're both CXL. Those pictures I posted above are from last year and it's the CXL we all know. I ended up selling those and buying a larger size this year and the CXL is very different. There are more highs/lows and crackling in the leather this year. It's more interesting I think.

Also, whatever happened to the Beckman moc-toes?...
