Evans hydraulic drum heads

The Red Hydraulics are my favorite out of the Hydraulic line, primarily because they're much closer to a G2/EC2S but still with a much shorter natural sustain. This has everything to do with the film combination (all of the films used for the various Hydraulic models are different). They respond at a wider tuning range than the other versions as well.
I don't mean to rehash and old thread but Ben's quote from above is an important statement that has been argued for a long time.... Well Ben is actually in the know and I'll take his info about anything Evans as gospel. So, there IS infact a difference between the different hydraulic heads beyond just their color. Care to elaborate or possibly set up a formal scale rating each 'color' or model from say least to most sustain for example? Evans doesn't even lightly discuss this anywhere that I've seen on their page.
