Thanks for Enjoying Grado Products

I can appreciate contacting the vendor for information, but if that's what they're saying then they need to update and clarify things on the site.
"Both the Black2 and Green2 use a three piece OTL cantilever that has a Grado specific diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Green2 are hand selected from Black2 production runs which meet higher test specifications. Approximately 15% of the run usually exhibits these specs and become a Green2."
As they are listed together on the page (Black2 and Green2), when you look at the specs, one set of specs for both, it indicates a Type E stylus....for both. I'm not poo-pooing your research at all, but the information being posted is accurate based on the information the vendor is putting out to the public.
I guess that could be the next question to Grado?
LOL, I'm not saying Jim is lying or anything, I'm just saying that 100 year old family company or not, the information, based on your correspondence, isn't accurate then....that's all.
[Heavy sigh] moving on....
The Green will test better than the Black because the cartridge body is better. The stylus has nothing to do with it. They are the same- except for the color of the dot indicating which is which.
Whether or not you can hear the difference is a different matter entirely. I'll bet you can't.
This is the combo I've been running with for years. I do need to order a new 8MZ sometime soon.
