    Greetings,

    Any opinions on whether it's worth it to hold out for a "green label" BF-2, or are the Japan and Taiwan versions more or less the same?

    Thank you in advance.

    After doing some A-B tests I found that the MIJ BF-2 that I own is fatter and juicer overall when compared to the 3 Taiwan version I compared it to.

    I've had two MIj's and one MIT. The MIJ's definitely had something more going for them.

    MIJ hands down. Thicker and warmer. The MIT seemed less organic, not bad, but not as good.

    sorry to spam, but I am actually selling a 1982 MIJ BF-2 in great condition with box and manual for a good price. If you're interested, pm me.
