Am I alone on this one or...

Are there any other people out there that think the UV77MC swirl finish is horribly ugly?

I'm probably gonna get flamed because a lot of people seem to like it, but I think it's very ugly...

EDIT:
I must say, I was shocked at the statement at first Maybe because I autimatically thought of the "concept" of swirls as opposed to individual ones.

After calming down a little, I think I understand. You guys are correct. Not all MC's are nice. I will have to agree that I don't like all the JEMS. I just can't get used to the SK's. Love the Florals.

PMC's - very few I like.
GMC's - I like almost all of them
MC's - only 1 or 2 MKR's and about 68% of the ATD's

I like the really swirly bright colored ones the best. And, of course, the PAW cover!

most of the UV777MCs lack the appeal of the PAW cover axe... glen

Hit and miss - Out of the 10 or so that I have seen in person only 2 or 3 really appeal to me. Bob O's is my favorite by far.

I dont think anybody on jemsite likes EVERY jem and universe model

e.g.
Rich doesnt like BFPs
Glen doesnt like UV7BKs (green or black versions)
Some people dont like the old grips of the PBK and RB jems
Kennydoe doesnt like PMC swirls
I don't like the DNA necks or VWH, DY, LNG, SK colours

It certainly is not a flaming offence not to like UVMC swirls!

And i dont like the FP's, DY's, SK's, DBK, DNA necks, VBSL, VBK, RB

But that doesnt mean i wont buy one if the price is right...

Of course out of all that, my least fav is the FP....

There are some JEMs that I really donīt like, mostly the flashy JEMs.
But no one is uglier then the FP!

Depending on the colors I am not a huge fan ov the UVMC's. I like some of the GMC's and I love allot of the PMC's, DNA's absolutely, but the Japanese MC's are the worst... yeeech. I just don't like the yellow base color I guess. and it becomes more tolerable in the PMC's that are somewhat yellow. My fave other than the DNA is the "Aquaswirl" recently posted about Here I LOVE that swirl! I'm really beginning to not like allot of Herc's stuff just because his swirls lack the chaotic beauty that ATD's have ,and after all, Darren is the guy who Ibanez hired !
If I ever have one done, Its gonna be hard to pick a color scheme...

I can't recall a time when opinions weren't welcome. You're entitled to that. I like all of the Jems and UV's. Some are plain and some are very flashy. Many if not most are one way or the other so the fact that one of these doesn't appeal to you shouldn't surprise anyone. If everyone felt exactly the same, we would have hardly anything very interesting to discuss and this forum would be practically non existant.

How could you possibly be happy making decisions only because someone else tells you that's what you should like? I may disagree with you since I like MC finishes but kudos to you for being yourself! :P

I think Glen said it right, the PAW swirl is the one all the other MC Universes have to live up to. Sadly very few, if any of them do imho

Imo most Japanese UV swirls look like an alien puked on them PMC is my favorite by far, especially "tight" swirls as shown in Ibanez catalog shots. I also like looks of 10th's and BSB's, others are ok too.
