Pacific rackets

What is this obsession with matte paint that all the companies have?
Matte paint get dirt easier and chip easier so frames look after few months like few years old -- so owners are more ready to buy new ones and less people would like to buy ugly looking frames on second hand market. What means more frames sold.


Received a very complete and professional reply from Pacific today...

I am concerned about Pacific gut - dried up supply most everywhere - seems far more so than ever. Hoping for the best... easily the best gut going if liveliness and feel are your thing, my thing for sure... Serving with old school gut is an absolute joy.
