Default Kapampa vs. moba

What are the differences between these two varients? I've been hearing for a while how neat the moba is but they are still really expensive. I can either get a lot of kapampa or less of the moba but I really don't know if the moba are worth the extra money. Comments?

I don't think that you could really make a bad decision either getting Kapampa or the Moba While the Kapampa are more Blue and the Moba having a violet coloring "purple" .

Fin, I thought that I heard Kapampa are the deepest blue (purple in some case) and also very sharp contrast between white and dark blue stripes, Kitumba are deep violet and then Moba is somewhere in the middle, lighter but "uniform" blue throughout the body...JMO
What are your opinion, Mark, Joe, Fish25, Charles, and Vista Mike and everyone else ....

IMO they are all nice!!!! Altohugh some might think that Mobas are more blue/purple than other variants, its really depends on how you look at it or taste. Some variants might have features that others dont, for example a Burundi, mgith not have the colors of the more expensive variant but the burundi has the head that others will rarely achieve, same with a mpimbwe, they have the attitude that other rarely have. It really depends on your perspective. But once agian, all type/variants are beautiful no matter were they are from.

The best advice I can give you is to try and see what they look like. Then you can decide which one you like better. It really boils down to personal preference.

Kapampa - Most blue
Kitumba - Most purple
Moba - Little of both depending on mood.

Very simple explanation but there you have it.

I'm going with Fin, you can't go wrong with either. Personally I like the kapampa a little better, but the Moba are gorgeous too.
