    It has been asked several times in the past and the answer is always NO.

Bigger and better Mega tree in 2016 using Boscoyo strips. Much better product! Thicker material, nodes fit tight, no issues. I would definitely use the Bsocoyo strips. Maybe the Holiday Coro strips are better now, my bad experience with them was from early 2015. Have never heard a complaint on the Boscoyo product.
    Soar Thumbs will attest to that.

    My thumb print no longer works to unlock my IPhone after pushing all those nodes... over 10k last year and the Monster Matrix is way harder than the strips fyi! Great product but a painmatrix.jpg

    I used that paint this year and it stayed on as long as you weren't actively trying to scratch it off. I think it would have done better if I hit it with their primer first. it's not perfect, but a green/dark brown look was what I was looking for to try and blend in a bit better with the bushes. A few blotchy or scratched spots only add to the effect.

    Has anyone ever used a progressive spacing on the strips? Like 4" on one end and progressively shorter spacing so that it is 2" at the far end? (Since the top of the tree, each column is closer together they could be spaced vertically apart further. Then at the bottom of the tree were the viewer is closer and the columns are further apart, the spacing are closer together.)

    Good that you are mentioning this arrangement . Don't think it has been done yet but i have also been working on this set up so that the "Sweet Spot " always has a component of 4 pixels in a square all the way up the tree from bottom to top . The Proportional Degree Tree helps to make this possible . There are a lot of ways the pixel tree will be developed in the future .

    I have strips from both vendors and trust me - Boscoyo is the only way to go.
