Was really thinking a 25 year old version of Masi. Didnt specify model, as Waterfords have different models as well. Thought would let respondent make distinction if he/she thought important. Thought by saying steel, lugs one color - modern Masis would be out, but thats my mistake - sorry. Without tipping hand, its a product managers kind of question having to do with what constitutes the stuff of "brand", image, quality, value, etc.
Thanks for response.
