I'm convinced people will have numerous checkout bots ready to go for this one... Also, there will be a large
handful of people who claim its too heavy or they don't want it but will silently end up with one anyway because they know they can flip it for a profit.
I'm just super anxious to snag one. I try to avoid the PM2 madness but I just can't resist the copper scales. If I miss this one, I'll undoubtedly be setting up a checkout bot for future knives.
I had two bots running and two other browsers open.
I was able to buy one, not with automation, but by refreshing the pages manually and clicking to check out. When site traffic is overwhelming I don't think a bot/script/automation is any type of advantage over manually checking out - except maybe if someone is trying to purchase multiples (which isn't my thing).
As I write this a script just notified me that it went out of stock at 10:31am MDT. Is that the actual time it went out of stock? Hard to say because not all automation is accurate to when something occurs in a site, but rather when the automated function runs and returns a result.
Anyhow I'm stoked because I was able to buy one and that flippy balisong pen from spyderco.
Glad you were able to snag one.
