Default Best Orange choice

I'm looking for a true orange. I've tried some of the transparent "striking" orange, but it's too close to red. I want that "orangey" orange. I have 2 rods of a beautiful Transparent Orange 422. Any good recommendations?

Thanks in advance!!!

Lauscha makes a nice orange.

Here's another vote for CiM Clockwork. It strikes but you can control the strike so that you can get different intensities of transparent orange.

Isn't 422 an opaque? Are you looking for a transparent? Lauscha has a nice translucent orange.

Mango coral is my favorite opaque orange.

Lauscha tangerine is nice, Vetro Carrot Sparkle is nice...can't remember if that was trans though. I like plain old striking orange but it has to be layered.

I'm about 85% sure the orange here is V. Carrot Sparkle. Frantz still has some.

orange crush is gorgeous lickable orange crush soda orange. It does go a bit translucent in the flame the longer it is worked. A focal I did was almost an opaque, but it had a beautiful glow.

Be careful of overworking the transparent orange. You will get more red if it's overheated after striking.

I really like to mix electric yellow with my orange. It used to be much more orange, they've changed the batch or formulation to be too close to red in my opinion.
