Others may disagree. Your millage may vary. Void where prohibited by law.
Quote:Roland C. mentioned on the yahoo groups that they are working hard to have a new mount at NEAF this year. AP900 replacement?
I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote:Quote:I Or maybe it will be the Diablo.-Rich ....I suggest Fiorano:)...besides car references I am really curious too about the successor of the AP900. The 900 is next to get for my collection of mounts I wonder if we will see more used ones hit the market as people upgrade.Andy

Quote:Roland said today that this new mount will have a 100-120lb capacity still TBD and it will weigh 42 lbs (26+16). This is like 10 lbs lighter than the 900 I think?

Quote:Last year at NEAF, Howard said he figured it would be the 1000 or Grand.
Quote: However, how fantastic is it that they were able to reduce any weight but significantly increase the payload capacity by 50%.

Quote:I am in a quandary. I need a mount. I'd buy the AP1100 in a heartbeat right now. But it's just not available. While a new AP900 would fit my needs admirably, I want the new one!!Any comments on the wisdom of being the "first" AP1100 customer? AP will get it right the first time?
