    so is this true? Blood really is basically Cinder Red?

    Ive seen metallic Red on the Radar which is similar to Cinder Red but its more Red.

    I have to know!! I love Cinder!! (Herbs, back me up here!)

    Blood is similar, but doesn't have the glittery sparkle element that Cinder has.

    I like it as a colour - I almost bought the Straight Jacket - but to me Cinder is superior.

    Blood does indeed sparkle in sun very subtly on my SJ 2's...they are very close though

    I think it's widely acknowledged that Cinder Red is the best O-Matter frame colour, yes.

    Cinder and Blood (to my eye) are exactly the same.

    Here's a couple close ups of my Cinder Dogs and Blood SJII's

    it looks to me like cinder is the more stealth one.. that suddenly springs the sparkly in the light. Blood is dark red, giving away abit of its secret in low lights.. and looks like it just isnt quite as sparkly as cinder?

    The Cinder looks more sparkly to me in those pics. Maybe it is down to flake color as Bri says.
