No, they aren't as slubby as the AI-001 (it does cost twice as much, after all). The XX-003, XX-004, XX-005, and XX-007 are slubby. XX-006 and XX-008 aren't.
Pg2g thanks for all the info. Yeah , big site is a bit unclear what is or is not on there.
It seems the 007 is not as popular on here as the 005. I'm thinking due to cut.
They are both tops in premium japanese quality though right? Thanks
