I can hand a well versed pastel artist some nupastels, and then some unicolor ones and i guarantee whatever he makes with the unicolors will turn out better.
Nupastels aren't bad, really, just on the hard end of the chalky scale. Their hardness can be valuable, really- you can put in a lot of layers without filling up your tooth. When I learned pastels from someone who really knows them, I was taught to start work in nupastels and save the juicy, soft stuff for the final layer.
Sorry for ignoring the point.
