Bob Petruska can likely answer that better than me as I have no experience with their Pigment inks.

All I know it that the exceed just about every other in IQ and are so closely matched to OEM that it probably is possible.

Just one bit of info. In most, and probably all pigment ink sets, whether OEM or 3rd party, the Magenta pigment is the most dificult one to formulate the give a high level of gloss. Even my K3 OEM inks still show a tiny bit of gloss differential on glossy papers, Image Specialists and OCP's Magenta Pigment formulation prints practically matte. So any color hue that is using any Magenta will display gloss differential.

My only recourse to this problem was to set up one of my spare Epson 1400 printers with 6 carts filled with 3rd party gloss optimizer. I send all my glossy and luster prints suffering from this through this printer, by printing a borderless filled with 50% gray document with NO COLOR MANAGEMENT of the same size to lay down an even coat of GLOP. Results are the best I've ever seen.

Now about CONE Pigment K3 regular and V Magenta inks. THEY HAVE BETTER GLOSS CHARACTERISTICS THAN OEM!!!!! YES THEY ACTUALLY DO

Nuff said. Yes you pay more but,,,,,,,,,,,,,

PS would consider selling those IR carts?
