Ron, gotta agree there. Each time I order something, I always tried to order a few extra ends just in case someone wanted something different.

As far as the other stuff goes, I don't know why any changes because the original ones worked fine as far as I could tell. I didn't have any problems with mine.

If anything, i'd like to see CSUSA offer barrel trimmers for all these different tube sizes they now have. It's a total PIA trying to get CA out of the tube when the reamer is undersize.

Man, you guys rock.

All I want to know is; When will you start <b>chrome plating</b> the Jr Gents for monetarily challenged folks like myself?

I have to agree with all of the above statements too, I used to think of CS USA as one of the best.
But the are steadily getting worse.[V]

Skye - you mentioned "monetarily challenged" but I have lost a couple of sells because the customer wanted chrome and it was unavailable for that item. Pen and Pencil were available in chrome but not the letter opener or perfume atomizer (all for the wife) for gift. I wish ALL "kits" came in all the different plating. Would it be that difficult or expensive for a company to provide?

Short answer is yes. One of the major expenses that most businesses have to deal with is that of inventory Simply put, they are only going to stock what sells......in sufficient quantity for them to make a profit. Inventory that just sits on the shelves is a big problem.

I'm sure CSUSA would put out a chrome version if they thought there was sufficient demand.......for example everyone wanted a really nice high end kit and out came the Emperor. Send your emails to CSUSA and let them know what you want. If enough people do that, I'm sure you will see a response.

I think we're talking about the same thing. I cant afford Rhodium plating on a JrGent, so I think chrome would be a nice, affordable alternative and more durable than 24 or 10K gold.

Honestly, this is one kit I would rather not see in chrome. Only because there would be ones out there "cheaper" but look just the same as the rhoidum to the standard user. That alone could drive the higher sales market down. Lower price would be nice though.

Why not try the chrome Baron ? On sale from AS is around 6.80. Not a bad price considering all of the issues with thr Jr Gents.
