C&B Green v. Canadian Spring Green
« on: May 31, 2018, 09:39:55 PM »
Iím thinking about picking up a Canadian Spring Green. Is it the same shade of green as the C&B green performer?

From what I recall Spring Green is a lighter/brighter green than Grass Green. Hard to tell from internet pictures. Spring Green was also available in Europe.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

He is asking if the current spring green in Canada is the same as the old Crate and Barrel Green (Spring Green). Both are different than the lighter (yellower) Sage.

Itís looks about the same to me? But Pete, itís a great opportunity to have a MT version of a kettle in a color that you like. @SacramentoWeber...When are we going to Canada? [emoji6]

Calling @greenweb. I'm sure he's got some comparison photos around.

Ah. Sorry, I never realized C&B offered *any* Spring Green.

(The ďoldĒ C&B green is Grass Green. 2005-2008 or so, and slightly predating the Spring Greens in Europe.)

Thanks Neil for that link.

Just to be clear,  Spring Green is much lighter green than C&B Grass Green. Also, Lighter Spring Green was only offered in Euro Gen 1 MT and the current Canadian LE Gen2 MT, and Grass Green only in C&B Performers. I think only in Gen2 and Gen3.   

Tomorrow, I will take a pic of my Spring Green MT and Grass Green C&B Performer side by side for a direct comparison.

I love my Green MT, but  I also love my other Canadian MT colors. If anyone is interested in seeing what they would prefer ( one over the others).... I could take some pics of the Green, Ivory, Smoke, and Slate for your viewing. :D

My Green family pic from last year that shows the difference in shade.  Spring Green MTs in the front and the Grass Green Performer to the back left.


I will take few few more relevant pics today for you.

Euro Gen1 MT, "DI" code. I don't have anything to compare it to. But I've always considered it Spring Green. Got it 2nd hand so never knew the correct color name.
