Has another deadline been missed? At least it has given me something to look forward to for the past several months.Has the ash from the volcano held up shipment?

Maybe, they're lost and we'll have to wait for new ones to be manufactured.

Good thing I'm not impatient over this effing $100 magic wallet. I got a mortgage and feeding the kids to worry about, bloody hell. I guess I'm not that lucky.
I highly suggest you take an extended vacation after this blows by so you can recharge, regroup and create more awesome props in the future for us "grateful" fans.

The sentiments are a recurring theme when it comes to Roth not keeping everyone informed and BIG delays in getting the actual product to his customers. Roth is a great guy with awesome products, but maybe if he takes my advice from my post above, it would alleviate a lot of stress for him and his customers. Maybe Someone else has an alternative idea?

The Showdown wallet has been the unfortunate victim of unexpected delays and I'm not sure the disclaimer idea would alleviate that kind of stress. It certainly wouldn't alleviate stress on Rick because, at the end of the day, he wants to get his product to the market as soon as possible and the delays would be just as infuriating whether a disclaimer was in place or not! Smile

As to "customer stress" in general, people experience it at different levels, from indifference through mild annoyance to vitriolic rage.

Myself, I can wait till next year if I have to (crosses fingers just in case...) because, as privately impatient and excited as I am to get my hands on the Showdown, my not having it is not preventing me thinking of ways I can adapt current routines to use it, nor preventing me from performing magic in general.

Between them, I think Rick and Ran Pink have kept us reasonably informed of developments, and I have always had prompt replies to pm's. Could they have posted more often in this thread? Close call, but I'm not losing any sleep over it.

You can't help but compare situations when you see things like Docc Hillford's Serpent wallet and Mark Elsdon's 'On The Mark' routine suddenly appear and get to the market while we're still waiting for our Showdowns, but then neither are as tricked-out and complex as the Showdown really is, and I look forward to being pleasantly surprised when I get to open that package.

If I sound like an Outlaw apologist, then it's because - like many others - I have had good service and great products in the past, and I have faith that when we finally get our Showdowns, we'll all breath a collective sigh of relief that the wait (as uncomfortable and unwelcome as it was) was worth it.

I think we just have to wait this one out, guys. After all, it's the last wallet Outlaw effects are releasing. Better to go out on a bang than a whimper.

Are you suggesting that you are aware of a further delay of which we have not yet been informed? Agree, that the product has always been worth the wait, but knowing the quality of the product just makes the period of expectancy more frustrating.

You mean the comment about waiting a year? No - nothing like that. I was just saying that I am happy to wait longer still if need be (though crossing my fingers that it wouldn't actually be that long).

Sorry for the confusion. Smile

It looks like the Outlaw website says that they will be in stock on May 7th and available for shipment. (look in the order box)

Soooooo...the latest it seems is that the Showdowm has gone from arriving and shipping for pre orders from May 3rd, postponed to the 7th May, and now from Outlaws website the date has been changed to May 10th!

Informed delays are acceptable. Not brilliant, just acceptable. But empty timescales and promises just don't cut it really.

Methinks they will ship sooner than that. Parmenion is too pessimistic.
