Re: online vendor

Yes, I bought a vxp from them about a month ago. I had a lot of questions they answered and they shipped the next day.

I am pretty sure they are a big player.

Re: Soft Tip - Crisp Tip

Yes, that would be/have been my take on it Rip , but I am finding some of my prior principles/perceptions no longer apply as they were based on blank technology from the late 80's (RPL/HLS era). It...
