    I kind of like the green's translucency, but everyone's different. If I'm too covered up and it's dark I get a little claustrophobic.

    These look cool although I'd rather colors like the Amsteel. In my experience with whoopies, it seems the Spectra slides better. I'd probably buy a set regardless.
