Your Pint Shipping Date

  • It would be nice if FM would give us a better idea of just how many are being built a day. At least then we would have a better idea of where we’re at in the process. At this point we’re just seeing our ship date get pushed further and further out.
    On top of that I’m seeing some pop up on eBay for absurd prices. I understand supply and demand but man $600 over list !

  • @brahlay said in Your Pint Shipping Date:

    it was obvious it was a preorder, and it truly wasn't.

    i am one of those who DID assume it was a preorder. it was a new product announcement, so it just made sense to me. i was surprised when people were upset about it at first.

  • @Franko I'm wondering if u and others see any issue with having to 'assume' anything when making a purchase, esp. 'assuming' it's a preorder... what a joke! This is the pressing issue. It obviously wasn't clearly stated on the site, anywhere at the time of early purchases, like mine and others'. If it was, there would be no assumptions or misunderstandings from anybody to address. Make sense?

  • @brahlay again, I did a TON of research before placing my order. The only thing I assumed at the time was that a 2 month production window for a brand new domestic factory was not going to be realistic.

    TBH I guess that’s the heart of why we’ve had such different experiences. I knew exactly what I was getting into when I placed my order and I fully expected delays to begin with.

  • I saw this product many years ago but it was too expensive

    I saw adverts and videos of the pint in Feb/ March I think and kept an eye on the situation.

    I was tempted to place an order in March but finally took the plunge in May just around the time of the big set back.

    I knew it wasnt ready when i placed the order but they advertised shippng in June or July.. i really cant remember now so i knew i would have to wait atleast a month or two.

    I think the issue is communication... they would string people along up until a day before their estimated dispatch date only to be pushed back a few weeks.

    I'm sure we can all agree the level of communication back then and even now is pretty poor.... and because of that i dont think anyone is to blame if they assmumed the expected norm.

  • @brahlay look, you're clearly angry, and i get it. i swear when i ordered on March 12th it did say "preorder" somewhere during the ordering process (you can read some of my early posts here, i think i mentioned it back when i first joined this forum and saw people being mad about it) -- but of course there was no way to go back and check for that wording after i placed my order. if it wasn't there, it wasn't there, but i say "assumed" because it seemed clear to me from the start that this was a new product announcement -- a 2.0 version of their existing products -- and that we were jumping on as early adopters, which means there would be a wait. yes, the FM communication is seriously lacking... on that we can totally agree.

  • @a1katie True. Understood ✌🏼

  • @Franko Gotchya. The pint was the 1st I've ever seen of the OW's and I had no product knowledge prior. Anyway not mad, a bit annoyed, but mostly eager n trying to see where other peoples heads are at with this.

  • @brahlay it definitely has been a bumpy, sucky ride, and i know people are anxiously awaiting their orders. all i can say is that before i got my shipping notice a couple weeks ago that i was seriously vowing that if i got bumped into august i was going to cancel my order. now that i have one and have been learning to ride it, i'm ALL IN. the Pint is solid as a truck, it's fun, it's nimble, and it's everything they promised. if you can just hold on, you'll see.

  • @Franko Awesome! Enjoy. I will def keep holding and now that I finally vented to u n katie, I feel better lol. My bad

  • @brahlay venting ain’t bad at all if it makes you feel better! Cheers!

  • @brahlay all good man, all good.

  • @a1katie 🙏

  • My order 449xx still holding for 7/27, "in production." As an aside, since someone on this forum was 442xx to be delivered 7/23 (but had a shipping issue due to country of destination), new estimate of pints made per day.

    Estimated 700 pint difference between our orders, 5 days between our delivery dates ~140 pints / day.

    Just spitballing fwiw

  • @steak
    Nobody knows how many of these numbers are related to a pint.
    What about all the XRˋs and people who cancelled their pint?

  • @crazy4-o Of course

    Any estimate is just for schitzengiggle while I wait for my float to begin.

    140 pints/day is probably on the high end. My initial estimate of over 200/day now seems outside any plausible production range.

  • @steak
    clear! everything that makes your waiting time easier!
    I'm in the same boat, but gave up trying to see through their system and capacity. maybe they do 100 a day maybe 140 ... maybe 200 if the production runs optimally.
    you'll start your float life sooner or later, that's for sure!

  • Noticed my shipping date improved by four days ! Hope this trend continues. Maybe production is improving.

  • @KWasch which color did you order and when did you order yours

  • @sandsurfer
    I was late to the game , ordered a slate on the July 10th
