Thanks very much for your input. Your description on the effect of use of softer? canvas definitely makes me want to look into the higher end stuff.
Hi GBR. I certainly did not mean to surprise you, and apologies for my ignorance. Certainly do not mean to annoy you either.
I understand that you will get more for Chan, Yao and Yu than you would for paying less at LB (you get what you pay for).
My question was not really about that, but what the difference was between those three (red gang?) v. LB - i.e. what am I paying for with the extra 6000HKD exactly? I am getting more, but what is that "more"? Perhaps, as you say, the answers to my questions are already out there. But I've searched for hours in this forum, and that is where the gap (at least in my readings) was, which I was curious about.
Please don't feel obligated to answer - just trying to explain what my questions were geared towards (which I perhaps may not have stated well enough).
Understood and very logical answer. I guess it is inevitable that I would have to end up doing some trial and error. :) My goal was to minimize that error by getting as much info as possible, go to the one I felt was best (based on information gathered) and hope that one sticks. If I'm happy, I'll just keep going back.
I guess looking back, it's obvious my other motive was to check which price point was my "sweet spot". Of course I will get more with Chan, but would I have been happy with LB (i.e. as a newbie, does it make sense to pay 6000 more for something I can't/don't even appreciate).
In the end, I'm just trying to cheat a bit with all your knowledge/experience, but I know I'll have to put the money down at some point. :)
