Does the tapered beam theory of the Elliptics also apply to the later chinese models?
I have a yellow late model Elliptic midplus with a beam that looks perfectly straight, no tapering what so ever, or atleast, it seems that way.
That Open Prestige is indeed straight too with a wider beam than the Elliptics.
