    Red tip is better for use with thicker material like sandblast, high intensity reflective, etc.

    Blue tip is ideal for softer, thinner materials like vinyl, ambermask, paintmask, etc.

    I'm assuming that you are refering to the blade holders, each is designed to accomodate different blades, refer to your Graphtec manual for proper applications.

    Bobby is right, the red tipped blade holder holds the 15U blade for thick materials, & the blue tipped holder holds the 09U blades for regular 2 & 3 mil vinyl
