Pocket Tripod PRO - First Production Samples
We're super happy to finally get our hands on the first samples of the Pocket Tripod PRO, since its tooling began less than 3 months ago. Have a look at the video below for a close-up look.
Rework and Adjustments
Our manufacturer has performed their first trial run, and sent us the samples last week. Overall, the components are very well made but do require further fine-tuning for correct fit and function. Creating tools for plastic injection molding is an iterative process.
All of the adjustments are straightforward, and our manufacturer already has experience doing them from the original Pocket Tripod. The profile of the carbon fiber skeleton also needs to be modified to improve the flow of plastic, as well as to adjust for the shrinkage.
New expected ship date
Our initial plan was to manufacture all of our inventory before the Chinese New Year and have them sent to us for packaging and shipping. But our manufacturer needs more time to make the necessary adjustments to the mold. At the same time, our carbon fiber supplier will be remaking the skeletons. Our new expected ship date is April 28th. Here's how far we've come, and what's still left to do. Click the image below to enlarge.
Big thanks to everyone who's answered the BackerKit surveys. If you haven't received it yet, please let our support staff know. We'll keep the surveys open until the end of March so that you can update your selection or address if you move or change your device. We realize that waiting for our new ship date may not be an option for some of our backers. That's why we have a no questions asked refund policy. Simply contact our support staff, and we will be more than happy to assist you. (Support@Pocket-Tripod.com)
