I think we all would as well, but holy hell that's a big $$ liability if for some reason it was a flop. Realistically a 6 figure chance they'd be taking. I'm sure there will be enough to go around.261659 wrote: ↑Sun Oct 13, 2019 8:21 pmi would like to see 3000 cruwear shaman sprints released....sounds good right...... more happy cx.... more money for spyderco.....more R and D opportunity....better marketing..... more potential cx..... give us a release date..... and spyderco rules the world....lol.....

That’s my concern as well. I was told to sign up for email notifications on the dealer sites, but I’ve also heard that is usually too little, too late.
I agree with allot of what you are saying and there is a solution.Tarheelpwr wrote: ↑Tue Oct 15, 2019 4:00 pmThat’s my concern as well. I was told to sign up for email notifications on the dealer sites, but I’ve also heard that is usually too little, too late.
I’ve started to become disenfranchised with the whole sprint run idea. I feel like it’s a carrot dangled that I won’t get unless I’m willing to just pay crazy money.
I wish they just announced the release dates so everyone had a fair chance. But, that caters to the casual customer and hurts their die hard loyal base.
Every decision they make has pros and cons.
But, on the flip side, I understand the business reason behind limiting risk. Spyderco does offer many things we couldn’t get elsewhere. I just wish there was a better way for them to gauge demand.
