Re: … indeed in my opinion the long 5 should be called Mk1 ...

Fabrizio, thanks for the response, it made me spend the afternoon comparing inserts to try to get to the bottom of this. I have a long 5 insert that was made with a worn pad, when I compare it to a normal long 5 it's obvious to see that all the edges have become rounded and less sharp slightly larger too. The same can be seen when comparing an mk3 insert to an mk1, it wasn't obvious right away but the more I look the more I think that Glenn, Marcello and others may have been right. It's tough to change the name or nickname for something in our community, we have been calling them by their mk names for years. It's a little strange though if an mk1 is really just an mk3 who's pad was worn.
Mk2 and mk2 worn pad version
Mk3 and 1
The long 5 should have been called mk1 and its worn pad brother, "mk1 kissing 40"
And the current mk3 should have been called mk2 and its worn pad brother, "mk2 kissing 40"
I think that would have been more appropriate considering
