Apparently, VSTs are 727 hole, according to Socratic Coffee. Not sure if there's any difference in total surface area, basket shape, or hole geometry.
(For the record, I ordered the newer 876 baskets.)

Hrm, I bought a basket from them around a month ago. I wonder which version I have? The website doesn't appear to indicate a difference so I assume they're just silently switching over?
Size wise their baskets are basically VST (tampers made for VST work perfectly in the Pullman as well). I'd be interested to see extraction data for the difference in holes though. It looks like the old Pullman baskets were 715 holes.

It would appear that they're marked on the side.

Sorry if this was already mentioned, but who supplies the new 876 hole Pullman baskets in the US?

I ordered from Prima and should receive them soon. I will post in several weeks when I have an opinion on them.

I asked Prima this morning; they said that current stock at Prima is the 715 hole version. No other details offered, but my guess is that they want to clear out their inventory before ordering the 876 hole newer version.
I'm looking forward to a comparison with 715 hole Pullman and VST. I currently use and am happy with VST ridge-less basket and Pullman Big Step tamper.
