FS A1 finish does not look impressive from this shot at all. Starting to regret my slip choice :(

Unfortunately as in most cases with these premiums, it's a lottery as to the finish and whether it will still actually be your preferred choice once all are eventually known. I've said it before, but it sucks that we don't get more live slip previews and Lenti vids etc before pre-order like for example WeET often does, to help avoid such (potential) disappointments.

Agreed. I've been lucky in the past and I can only think of a rare few where I've actually been really disappointed with a slip. I do usually go for lentis though, so unless the image itself is poor, it does mostly mitigate any issues with a meh slip finish.

WeET are the gold standard for showing live pics before preorders to be fair to them. QC issues aside, i wish other retailers would take a leaf out of their social media book.

In fairness to kimchi, I don't think I own a single slip that I don't like. All high quality stuff. A1 is still the best design of the 3, just hopefully it looks better in the flesh than it does there..

Don't forget Nova.

Somehow I can't believe the pics above are showing the the final product. A1 would look really poor with matte paper stock.

Yes that's fair, nova are actually spot on with their release promo shots as well. I rarely buy nova though so tend to forget about them. 1917 being a recent exception.
