Great advice here by everyone!
I now have 2 OEM cartridge sets that I am rotating and refilling, it is quick, easy and cheap and I am really happy with the results I am getting. I change and refill a complete set once the first cartridge (normally gray) is empty.

I am printing up a storm during these "lock-down" days thanks to the advice found here!

(1) use OEM inks and change each cart as they empty and you will get a complete purge cycle every time you do that, so 10 cart changes = ten purge cycles. That what’s known as the Domino effect and Canon will love you..

(2) Use 3rd party inks and change every cart when one cart get low or empty (Replace the lot)
#2 - a resetter, extra cartridges and ink - is called The Hat Trick. ;)

With @ioprappas refilling with Inktec, and @Rudix with Inkowl, we now have 4 brands of 3th party ink in the forum.

Seems the PRO-10, 8 years after release, only now gains interest among refillers (it was not different with the PRO-9500).
Looking forward to shared experiences, positive and negative ...

The Pro 10 is a nice machine, but I still love my two Pro-9500’s, 12 years on..
No problems with waste ink or resetting the ink counter..
;)

Hat, I have both and can tell you the colours of the PRO-10 are deeper, even on matte papers.
The 9500 has green ink, but the grass is greener with the PRO-10 ;) .
I couldn't believe it and loaded OEM green to be sure.
I intended to use the 9500 for matte, but I am afraid it will continue it's life for office A3 work.
Will make new profiles, check again and post back.

For gloss and satin the PRO-10 is a huge advance, not only because of the CO but the inks have a more even gloss.
Most 9500 3th party inks are the first copies of the (far from perfect) original Lucia inks.
PRO-10 inks in the 9500 help.

PS: before the ink counter is full I will have found a second PRO-10 on the cheap, and it is not excluded the Russian reset utilities will work, no one dares to try.

PS: the matte printing on the PRO-9500 is solved, at least with borders, back to the other thread
