Quote:Very exciting, indeed! But remember...we don't believe until there are pictures. Rules, after all, are rules.
Quote:Mach 1's are in production for summer delivery according to Marj.
Quote:I'm so conflicted. I certainly can't afford the 900, and I'm on the list for the Mach-1, but I'm wondering if there's going to be a production run soon enough for me (I'm currently without a mount).Then, there's the G-11 with the Gemini 2. I know it's not a Mach-1, but it's also half the price and should hopefully be freely available in a couple months.What to do, what to do...

Quote:The G-11 with the Gemini 2 will be a great mount for medium loads, more than the Mach1 from AP.
Quote: I'd have to go into debt for the Mach-1 plus accessories and I'm not sure I want that.
Quote:I have, in the past carried a lot of CC debt and will be gone this month. It's a huge boat anchor that I'm glad to be rid of. It's wishful thinking that I'll be have on-hand cash in time for the Mach-1 production run.Some day, just not right now.
Quote:Yeah...sorry for derailing the thread.
