[quote=cd pirate;2135200]Lol rather than assume it’s to do with it being PAPA or PAP6 maybe you should take the simple route and just accept that one spindle is a little better than the other for an unknown reason (random variable quality of production perhaps).[/quote] I would have to agree with this statement.
There is plenty of variation in the “PAPA” serial Verbatims I have used, ranging from brilliant through mediocre to downright unacceptable.
I haven’t had any PAP6 serial Verbatims yet, but using Occam’s Razor it’s not necessary to use any other explanation than simple variation in manufacturing at the same CMC factory.
I wouldn’t jump to conclusions based on one cakebox of each.
