Alright.... so I''ve spent numerous hours on PS and surfing vendors for an ER... I have been pleasantly surprised by the online vendors that I have contacted: GOG, Union and Excel... all have their benefits and all have had outstanding customer service, so far!!

Hi rc, I definitely like the 1.21 best on ASET out of the two you have. It looks great! Will wait to see last one.

RCL77, Your post is little confusing, try to put the ASET of each diamond next to the discription
to avoid confusion.
Thanks

Sorry, yes, I got confused too! It''s the 3rd we need the ASET on.


Anywho, I will give you a link that explains ASETS, and what they mean. You want as much red as possible, followed by green, mixed with some blue. So out of the two ASET''s we have, I like what I''m seeing in the 1.21 best!
