Default Silver one touch vs. Gold one touch

Was just wondering what yall would do? On CL here there are a one touch gold for 100, and a silver for 85. What would yall grab? Either seem to be a deal, both are new in box.

Gold. Wind can blow away ashes from Silver's pan. Offer $80 for the Gold, they should take it. (I got mine for $60 in new condition.)

Personally I would snatch up the gold. It's the better deal IMO

Wife bought me the silver a few years ago to replace my ~35 year oldWeber that was finally rusting through - I recently bought the gold ash catcher and installed it on the my silver, now it's exactly what I wanted all along...

Silver is only marked down $15 and the gold is marked down $50. I would definitely go for the gold.

Gold FTW. Totally worth the extra few bucks.

For a Franklin I'd be all over the Gold. I have a silver and ash blowing is not a problem A 8.00 2 gal galvanized bucket sits on the ash pan like it was made for it.

Love my gold. If the price difference was big, I could see getting a silver, but in this case get the gold.

It is the same at the Olympics I think. Someone who get silver always thinks about the gold but someone who gets gold does not think about the silver.

Got 2 golds myself. Like em' plenty I do.
