    on the lugs:

    ...and if you think that is over-thinking it a bit, well, that's how much we think about this stuff....but in the end, its all worth it.

    So these are the first Pearl drums that are made in China. To be honest I'm not very excited about this new Vision-series drums.
    Pearl's answer to Tama's Superstars?
    And the ISS tom mounts should have been Optimounts instead.
    Sorry, but I don't see the point in launching this new series of drums from Pearl.

    They're the new Exports. Pearl can't just ignore that market. Optimounts would drive the price up, which isn't the point with the Vision series.

    Vision = the new exports?

    But the export series still exist; one version "below" the vision series and one version "above" (the maple ones)... it's weird and unclear to me.

    I do like the red finish below the silver sparkle one though!

    I could be wrong, but I assume the Vision uses different hardware since it is built in China while the Exports are still built in Taiwan. Due to those differences, maybe they felt it best to distinguish the two lines. For example, the Gretsch Catalina Birch is made in Taiwan and the Catalina Maple is built in China and they have nothing in common with each other and to have them named under the same series seems strange since they share no common parts.
    I own or have owned drums and cymbals made by every major manufacturer. My go-to kit is a DW Collectors series set.

    i actually quite like these but they could do with some new snazzy colours.
