I purchased the Persons Apollo (Brooks Flyer clone) about a year ago in Blue. The leather appears to be painted, not dyed through, so that when it scratched, the color came off. Its also not nearly as firm as a Brooks. Advantage is it requires almost no break in. Disadvantage is after one year, I've got the tension bolt maxed out and it still wants to sag. One other problem is that the springs on the Apollo creak more than those on a Flyer, which I find annoying. It's not like it I hate it or anything, but it ain't no Brooks. I'm thinking of replacing it with a Brooks B67.
