Differences between Russian Pointe Almaz & Sapfir?

Hi there,
Has anyone tried both Almaz & Sapfir? I know Almaz V2 & Rubin V2 (both U-Cut) and to me it seemed that Rubin V2 had a somewhat shorter vamp comparted to Almaz. So I would need to know if Sapfir 40 V2 has the same vamp lenght as Almaz 40 V2. Are there any other differences apart from the fact that Sapfir is pre-arched and Almaz is not? Do they look very similar from outside (box shape, profile, etc?)

THANKS

From what I understand, the only difference between Sapfir and Almaz is that the Sapfir is pre-arched and Almaz is not. Other than that, I think they're shaped the same. I've tried on both and they both felt the same, aside from the arch. But someone else please correct me if I'm wrong. :)
