Default Zimmerman Z99

I'm just about out of my Zimmerman Z99, size 0 frit. Which of the replacements do you think is most like the original? Reichenbach has one, Val has one, Gaffer too ... which comes the closest??

I likes Gaffer's, but you could also offer to buy/trade in the GS. Addictive stuff!

I think Val's is Reichenbach. The Reichenbach is pretty darned close but I haven't tried the Gaffer.

Angie, if you're getting Gaffer anyway, you may want to try their Royal Purple. Just as beautiful as Purple Rose but less devit, imo.

Get both of the Gaffer purples and mix them. Size 1 is close to Z size 0.
