    My first one was green....the one I have now is like grey.

    Mine is green also - an Onzow that I paid $70 for years ago when it was only retail from Chad or Music Direct. However, the question is why do you have a replacement? They last forever - I've probably played over 10,000 sides, using it before every play. And it just cleans with soap and water. Dry it and it is like new.

    I sold it to a friend who really wanted it and we bartered for something else. Bought another 2 weeks later for less than half what they retail for.

    I'm not so sure they last a lifetime. I have had one for over 3 years and clean it regularly. I do see that the surface has micro cut marks from the stylus that do not go away with washing. Perhaps it doesn't make a difference ?

    I've noticed that as well, but I don't think it makes a difference. They aren't expensive, so changing them out every once in a while if it makes you feel better might not be a bad idea. You'll get peace of mind anyway.
