Long story short: yes.

I recently bought five sets of dies from all the well-known suppliers out there, three of those labeled as "spring-back". (It's a hobby, eh...) All of these will produce a fine airplane, but Cleaveland produces a slightly superior dimple with the best aesthetics.

Our building mindsets may differ, of course, but to me the $25 extra on a $100k+ outlay is way down in the noise.
