I\'m curious what your opinion is. I\'ve had New Plastic & Metacril, but saw the comments of Lemperle on Linnea and wonder if there is any advantage-
I don\'t think there can be any advantage in terms of gains. I suppose due to the fact the carriers aren\'t the same that one product could have an advantage over the other in terms of distribution of beads, but I\'d imagine it would be minimal, to the point that I doubt we\'d ever know which is superior. I think Lemperle\'s endorsement of Linnea was due to the smoothness of the beads and the low amount beads smaller the 20 microns. But it seems that these products are continually improved, as apparently more recent images of Metacril under the scope show it\'s purer than it used to be. It seems to me the biggest change with Linnea from NP, is the name. However, even though I doubt there is any real difference between it and later generations of NP and Metacril, if I was getting PMMA
I\'d opt for Linnea, for no other reason that I\'d feel better psychologically knowing I had the latest product on the market. It\'s not a good reason, but I\'m as susceptible to the powers of marketing and re-branding as any other consumer!
