    It's like an awkward stepchild that you never wanted, you hate it 'cause it was forced on you. (no offence to any step-people...)
    I just don't want to invest in XL's when I already have batteries and there's better things I can spend my money on.

    This ET battery module is what 75%(probably more) of customers want, not the XL Module.

    +1 on this...I have to agree that as slick as the XL module is, the last thing I want is to have to invest in quantities of yet another type of battery. I (like many others) have a boatload of Anton Bauers...don't really need a boatload of XL's too.

    +1 the first I'm gonna do is sell the XL module when it comes. But hopefully it won't be as bad of a sell as the quad module is to resell. As all I need is the Redvolt expander with the ET v-lock module for everything but movi stuff. Then I would use the jet pack if they can do a sdi out.

    +1. ...guessing this would make a lot of RED users VERY happy.
    ...too much RED on the brain.

    One of the great little accessories I found at NAB was a P Tap connector from Lentequip.

    It lights up Red if the polarity is wrong, and green if it is correct.

    For me, it could be a 'must have' accessory.

    Nobody likes the P Tap. It has a lot of problems, but unfortunately it is so entrenched in the industry, that we do have to work with it.

    I admire how Red has tried to change this, but the realities are that we have to find a way to work with it.

    Nothing is forced on you at all... I don't understand this statement.

    Are you talking about the XL module in the upgrade bundle, that you are getting for free?

    Wow...

    You're right. It's just wishful thinking.

    My Dad, who grew up in communist Poland has a saying (roughly translated):
    "When they're giving, take. When they're taking, run."

    Which is kinda the Iron Curtain way of saying "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"

    It seems a lot of people haven't realised that the price of weapon MG would be the same without these accessories, not sure people realise there getting the handle XL etc. thrown in with the body.

    Brent made this very clear in another thread when working out what you are really getting vs how much your spending etc.

    I for one am grateful for the accessories.

    As Jordan said, I'm also pretty sure that a lot of people don't relize how many "goodies" they are being offered by the upgrade. Maybe that's a good idea for your visualization, too as a comparison. I assume it's not obvious enough for a lot of people
    Something witty this way comes.
