I have just watched the Calibur on c&c and have just realised that to everything it is capable of doing you need to spend £97.86 . This is there special club price for everything you need . I did not realise this was the case , i am quite surprised by this .
Even if you spend this ( which is at the lowest club member price ) you still cant do most of the things our new machine can do or can you ?
Lets compare :
Calibur New A4
spellbinder type dies same ( but easier )
not possible SIZZIX BIGZ DIES !
not possible sizzlet dies
emb folders emb folders
not possible texture plates ( fiskars etc )
stencils same ( but deeper)
not possible coins and charms
not possible bottle caps
not possible fabric and soft leather
not possible thicker metals
not very good embossing leaves
How many plates required ?
4 top plates ! 2 top plates !
Please tell me if im wrong here , but to me all of a sudden the calibur just does not look cheap or easy to use with this mixture of plates to do a variety of tasks. Is this a sandwich recipe for disaster ?
You need at least two different plates in the calibur just for using different embossing folders never mind anything else ?
Please give me your honest opinion , even if you think i am wrong .
I value your input.
