    Is the new green RIP9 Kermit green?

    The title says it all. Is the newer green RIP9's color Kermit Green? Confirmation or info from Niner would be great!

    Yes it is the same as the Kermit green they just call it Niner green now.

    I have a green Rip9 & it is the same green as my Jet9 RDO & the Jet9 Alloy I had before it.

    Thank you so much for your response!
    I'm thinking about painting my raw rip9 the kermit green color because I like it so much. Now to figure out where to buy some...

    Good luck. I spent an hour in a autopaints shop trying to match mine but to no avail. Chap reckoned it's quite difficult to do with wet paints, but would probably have to start with painting it white.
    Close up, & in decent light, it is very light.

    I have a small amount of the actual paint that I'm going to spray onto a chip. Hopefully this makes the matching process easier.

    umm…. Kermit green was ONLY on the SIR9…. all others will always be known as Niner Green… Kinda like Atomic Blue which is the best color Niner made IMO

    Not to my recollection. The Air 9 at least had a Kermit green option, before Niner switched naming convention. Pre original Jet recall.

    Kermit Green is the same color as Niner Green. We changed the name but not the formula. Our paints are quite difficult to match - we use high-end multi-stage paint processes comprised of several layers to achieve a final paint color.

    Cheers,

    Which bit went over our (my) heads? Have you elsewhere emphatically dispelled Atomic Blue?
