  1. #1 Komodo shipping? 
    This seems like an obligatory albeit mostly pointless thread. Forgive me, I need something to occupy my attention besides politics!

    How are people doing re. bodies actually shipping?
    Was told by a rep I got my order in one of the earliest batches - within 2hrs of sales going live (when processing was still quoted as 7-10 days) and was told to expect tracking the 23rd or 26th but still nothing. I know the fires put the brakes on order processing for a few days...

    Not that I have anything to shoot. Just eager is all. :)

    Placed my order for the Komodo on the day of release. Was told it would be 2-3 weeks and that window has passed now. However, I placed a 2nd order for the accessories on Oct. 15th and it arrived last Friday.

    Same on my end. I ordered within the first hour of release and had the "7-10 days" timeframe, was told it was shipping on ~ the 23rd before the evacuation happened. Obviously that evacuation has delayed things. I look forward to using this thing on a few projects so hope it ships soon, I'm sure they are working hard on it.

    I ordered mine around 5:30 eastern time once my bank cleared my purchase on my card, the rep told me mid November when I reached out for shipping status a week after ordering it.

    I ordered a day after and got a processing time 4 - 6 weeks, so next week will be 4th week. I hope it could come on time, but since many people said the evacuation would cause delay, I have no idea now. Just hope I can get it before Christmas.

    From what I see on the various Facebook groups units have been shipping from RED, there certainly were orders allocated to dealers which people have pre-ordered and received as well. Lots of black bodies are in hands of people who pulled the trigger nearly immediately.

    I think they are just chewing through all the orders post-evacuation.

    Don't know if serials anything to go by considering the hop and skip you can do between dealers and RED, but there's a bunch out there.

    My production unit arrived in France on Monday. I ordered it through Red the day of the release.

    Ahh sounds like I'll be waiting a while, I ordered on the 26th, and got the 4-6 weeks estimate. Was hoping to get it by first or second week of December but its sounding like it might be the new year for a new Komodo.

    Very interesting! Phil, I had that same thought this morning - big blocks of S/N's probably went out to dealers first. I was honestly surprised to see a 7-10 day estimate when placing my order, last go around with the Helium it seemed like the first few month's worth sold out within minutes.

    Sounds very encouraging to me. Maybe I can receive mine before Thanksgiving.
