So... Are we in production yet? Sorry, that wasn't clear to me

 I've heard through the grape vine that production started last week

this is starting to get a little frustrating. why are we not getting more updates as things happen? everyone has paid. this is not the time to make changes to the design, just get the order in and update us on production.
I've been asking for weeks now for a revised timeline and have been told it's coming but am still waiting. Starting to get a bit frustrated as well. I know there's a bit of delay due to unforseen circumstances, which is fine, however I would like to know what this means in terms of delivery date.

If I had a revised timeline I would give it to you.
I know he is working on the boards but I haven't been able to get a date on shipping. I will post something in the OP shortly.

No worries man, thanks for the update. Hopefully I'm not being annoying and I really appreciate all the work you did (and are still doing) on the project. I'll hold tight and wait until you have more updates. Happy production has started, and think I speak for most when I say I can't wait to be typing on this board.

P.S. Hope you got all your computer problems fixed up :).

Probably depends on which prototype it was / which factory made it.  Which case was this one?  The cases I've handled for a day when I was taking photos had a very silky / satiny texture; those were made by EVE.  Different from the harder rougher texture of my LZ-GH.

Moistgun said it was a GB OMIRA (the one with the weird off-center corners) he got from the Chinese GB. Your best bet is to PM him and ask about it though.

We joked about it being "the skinripper," because when you run your skin along it, it leaves a gross line of dead skin. It felt almost rubberized, I was hoping for a finish closer to LZ/TGR boards.

I'm still hyped either way, I'm just curious.

Moist and I have the same version and I was really surprised at the feel of it as well.  Silky/satiny is a good way to describe it though, and my friend remarked that it felt like very short felt.

It's EVE, it'll be perfect. He's done a bunch of boards already. The group buy you're thinking of knowingly chose a bad manu. EVE is one of the best.

Thanks for the update photoe. I'm max hype for this.

The group buy you're thinking of knowingly chose a bad manu.

1. It's easy to tell who is ****posting and who actually cares - you should've done your research. My cases finished production on the 16th of November. It was the weights (the design mainly) that took us further. 27's cases arrived on the 16th of January. Therefore my cases were done 2 months before his arrived. This means there was absolutely no way to judge quality.

If I get an extra plate for my Dolphin I plan on selling off my spot. Lunar Grey Winkeyless.

#19 engraved.

Will post how much I paid (or just check the spreadsheet) as well as the $40 for the Limited Edition spot.

I would be interested in taking over your spot if someone would be looking to take over mine. The 19th is my birthday so it would be pretty cool to have that number. I also wouldn't mind switching WK for WKL. WKL looks much better now that I've seen more of it.

Thanks for the update!

I think I've read that other users are planning on using Alps and thus also need a plate. Is there anyone who's already working on a one? I don't know how to do this myself and would appreciate it if there were someone else doing it.

Why does that even happen? And do you know when this may or may not happen?
