Well, that is a very nice collection of urethane from the isle of Elba.

We're all the CX series the same duro? 

I'm looking at a set of CX 64 reds, wondered what duro they were, are they soft like other red kryps?

I acquired a set of red CX66 this year. Surprised to find they were a hard parking wheel and not the soft street riding wheels I'd previously assumed they were. I think the CX64 series were variations on a hard durometer and red Kryptos were the soft street riding wheels in the 80s.
Incidentally, anyone know which year the red CX66 came out? Must've been in the Dark Ages of the early 80s as I've never been able to find any reference online as to their year of origin.

I believe the CX-66 came out in 1979, around the same time as the K-Beams.  And I think, at least the early wheels, were like previous Kryptonics wheels with red, blue and green being of different duros.

Correct.

I would like it to be as you say - but I have never been able to get a set of soft red CX.

I've had a few, different cores, different weights, different logos ... but never soft.

So I guess yes, there were different colours, but alas no, not different duros, or at least no soft 78-80a duros.

I would be happy to be contradicted ...

Just came across an old picture of a Kryptonics ad, unfortunately, it's undated. And it's in black and white. [frown]

The CX-64 was designed as a "double conical street" wheel available in 78a - 92a duro.  It does not mention color options, but those match up with their duros from second/third gen wheels that were available in red, blue, and green.  Reds stayed at 78a, but third gen blues and greens were slightly harder duro than second gen series.  So, it seems the CX-64s have a comparable duro to the 3rd gen "regular" Kryptonics. 

The CX-66 was designed as a "double conical ramp" wheel available in 88a - 92a duro.  Again, it does not mention color options.
