I like most of the colours but the dun colours and the brown colours are my favourites. A neat Iron blue dun neck ohhh that's just delicious.

I read some where that the grizzly looks like the bug moving its wings and i mostly use the regular grizzly. half of this is maybe because all i have is brown grizzly, and a sand color, but i believe half is true. But i voted grizzly.

I voted all, since I really don't have a favorite. I like all the colors.
