Another Shipping Update

Posted by Maurice Ribble (Creator)

We just wanted to let our backers know that we've shipped about 150 of the 255 wheels.  Another 40 will go out this Monday so that will put us at 190.  There will likely be one more shipment later in August, but it's looking like the very last shipment of Electric Eel Wheels won't ship until September.  This is a few days later than originally estimated.  We just wanted to make sure none of our awesome backers were surprised by this at the end of August.  We really thought we'd be able to get all the wheels out in August, but assembly has been just a little slower than we thought it would be and that's the cause of this small delay.

      As of 9/9 what is the status? I'm concerned because I thought I would have it by now. Are any going out this week....I hope.

      Exciting! On the one hand, I was hoping to have mine for a road trip in a week, on the other at least I will have it for Spinzilla!!

      We hope to ship out the final Wheels in the next 1-2 weeks.

      Any chance for another status update on shipping? My wife has been asking, and I don't have any answers to give, since we are now into September and I was telling her "August-ish".

      I'm excited and having this update has been very helpful. Better right than rushed, for sure. This just means I will get to enjoy the anticipation a little longer. In the meantime, I'm following along on the Rav group and reading the initial impressions. It has been so informative, and I really appreciate the way you continue to help people troubleshoot any issues they have, support new spinners, and provide input on others' ideas on modifications.
