Based upon the history of sales of CCM markers (or at least what I have observed over a Number of Years of observing CCM markers sell.. especially "secondary sales") Wouldn't you think that Dust Black would be a POPULAR option in Sales on the Mid Block that is, if buyers had a choice?

In fact, I think that once Polished Finish isn't Forced on the buying public, Dust Black and Dust Colors will quickly dominate the percentage of markers ordered by individuals, like it seems to have for years.

Although the polished colors cost more on a "new CCM marker"...does it actually bring "that much" of a premium over basic black when it is resold?

I've observed lots of Want To Trade Posts offering "whatever color" CCM marker for a basic black CCM of same model or "WWT trade my "colored parts" for your dust black parts".

It would be very interesting to see an actual breakdown of the percentage of sales of CCM markers based solely on Polished finish vs Dust finish over the past 5 years. The J12 would likely be the single model of marker that would Not be a higher percentage of Dust. (Were the colors on the J12 dictated like the MidBlock?)

Don't get me wrong... I LOVE CCM, I think the Midblock is Incredible...I just think that if individuals could pick their own colors, the percentage of bright polished colors ordered would Drop Precipitously.


noclue...How did I do with my font choices?

Happy day!


In regards to everything else, I prefer gloss actually. Dust white was an exception but since that has gone to the wayside... My dream would have been Gloss Black with Gold parts but beggers can't be choosers

The gloss blue and red has grown on me though. Overall I am a happy camper.

And it just so happens that one of the MBP 45's is black and gold...

Thank you. Much better and more readable.

As for Dust color my guess would be that they wanted to see how the first batch goes before offering options.

This gloss vs dust conversation has me giggling... But I think right now they're doing the right thing - dust-black is the most popular color partly because it's also the cheapest color. The MBP is the new hotness, so these first, highly desirable models are decked out. It's the same reason you don't see many beige Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bugattis, etc.

It really is going to be, not an ugly color configuration at all.
