Who has the best lewisi hybrid?

This is a loaded question and there is no simple answer. I am assuming the question is specific to "the blueness" of the animals. In the past few years, I have acquired close to 100 crosses. my experiences are as follows:

1) Regardless of how blue they are, they are all beautiful in their special and unique patterns and colors.
2) There are wide range of "blueness" in the pure, wild populations of lewisis.
3) In the USA pet population (more than 1000????), Tom, sam and Manny has the reputation of having the "best" lewisi crosses and I have bought from all three.
4) All three do have the "best" lewisi crosses; they also have "not so blue" lewisi crosses for sale.
5) All three are honest enough to tell you the quality of the animals and they will be prices accordingly---typically between $200 to $1000 for babies and up to $20,000 for adults.
6) I have also purchased from other breeders, from known whole sellers, from kingsnake ads, from Faunaclassified ads, at the expo, from Craigslist and from friends.
7) In above cases, high prices did not always follow the "blueness" of the animals purchase: some individuals that I have paid only few hundred dollars has turned out as blue as those I have paid thousands for.
