My brother has the CMC version and its a very nice model. Much better than the Ricko version of course.
Sill Ricko version is that bad from what I have seen in my local store. Still a good model.
It all comes down to the price they are asking for them. If you have enough cash to buy a CMC 300 Sl which is priced as newer releases from CMC, then get the newer models not the 300SL. But, if it is really good priced, I do reccomend the CMC over the Ricko.
Is money an issue in this? I know its a stupid question, but some people seem to have endless pockets around here :giggle
I think it comes down to two factors:
If you can find both, then it's just a matter of how much you want to spend. Is the CMC better? Of course it is, but at A LOT more. For the price the Ricko version is a very good model in my opinion.
