    I would gladly pay that for one now or pay this price if someone has one they will not use and wants to sell.

    I long ago gave up on the Friday button punching battle.

    You have 3??? Good for you! The fact that I almost decided not to pre order gives me palpitations.

    Dan specified OD green TT and that's what I used. But Tommy wanted to order a set of three in a mix of colors and I obliged. These scales are BIG and don't fit our normal stock and fixtures sizes so there was some waste and inefficiencies in doing this so it wasn't a standard option, but he's been here a long time and a special set was possible so I was happy to oblige. I like to do special projects when it's possible, but the stars have to align or I have to decline in order to prevent getting sucked down the rabbit holes. Ask Chip, I'm gung ho on fun projects but then life happens and I happen to suck to keeping up with stuff. So, as a rule I can't accommodate special requests, but I like to and sometimes I can.

    If you ever need someone to whack through some trees with those I'd be happy to offer my services and even provide a FedEx shipping label hahaha.

    I'm so sad that I didn't think to try and wheedle Jo into doing different scales now. :(

    Don't be, you won't even care about the scales once you get it in hand, besides they will all feel the same (TeroTuf)

    Dang. I totally would've politely asked for purple.

    The green is killer, tho. Nice haul, @TommyGun56
    To say I'm envious of your 3 would be an understatement! I should've done the same. A backup to the backup. Ahhh. Hindsight.

    K18 kinda reminds of Darksaber, not sure if there are any Mandalorian fans

    I know all about the Super Bowl. It’s that televised trade show that comes on once a year around the time of the Rugby Six Nations. And that guy Tom always goes there and picks up a social disease - MVP, I think they call it.

    And personally, I think that’s a great choice. While it would be great to have 3 of these (one for each arm, I guess), that was never going to be an option in my case.
