    Why do you want the old cads? Are they better? I have yet to try the new cads. Been sitting on a few pounds of each of the old ga cads. I might be able to part with a QP of each if the price is right.

    Unless those new cads are total crap, then I'll just keep my stock.

    The old cads are waaaaaay more saturated than the neo cads. I spoke with Thomas last week and he mentioned that the saturated cads are on the way back. I haven't tried any of the new NS cads

    For anyone wondering, Northstar cads have not changed at all from what I can tell. Same saturation, same workability with old and new ones side by side.

    the neo cads are fucking dope but they are thinned out, we have used them in a pull though so have no fear, go look at my instagram at the cajun fire and ice tube we pulled, its got old and new colors from GA and NS. I am seeking the old cads because people think they cant work them, but I work them and use them daily almost in iso work, and as well, I have some tube pulls I want to do, and I am low on yellows, greens purples and blues, I mean, I will probably buy whatever

    Old GA Cads are easy as fuck to work compared to other ones. That's why i always preferred them. Their black too.

    Boro Art Supply is run by pretty awesome folks. They've always got color at 30% off as long as you buy a pound at a time or more, apart from the usual "discount doesn't apply" colors, but I believe they still have those marked down 10%. Pretty nice for the nickle and dime guys like myself.

    I doubt they'll be getting anymore of the old cads in, but it might be worth shooting them an email anyways. I think they just lucked into a huge stash, and it was sold out very quickly.

    Dude get on Instagram and follow them . They get grips of stuff others can not .

    They also tend to be cheaper if ordering smaller amounts of tag glass .

    Well compared to tag websight . But I have not looked recently and tag may have done away with Order min
