I was one of the 8% who voted "take my money".

Why? Because I'm an operator, not a collector. I "speculate" that this TITLE will earn very well in my tourist locations because of the license/franchise. And although I love the movies, I have absolutely no emotional investment into this.

Therefore, I'm willing to "risk" my money today, on the future earnings of this title. I would suspect that other, likely larger, operators might agree.

To my point, just based on the current votes, it would appear that at best, 10% of the respondents are operators, while the remaining 90% are collectors who are tired of seeing themselves, or other collectors, suffer from ongoing disappointment.

The collector market continues to be shifting to JJP and other boutiques, while Stern obviously has no competition at the near $5k operator level, which is where I purchase my operator equipment.

I just don't think Stern can survive on operators alone, so they really need to step up their quality to retain/regain the collector market.

Of course, I could be completely wrong too. But I'm buying a pair of pros anyway.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Except that the distros usually want to charge you 3% for using a credit card...which is a bummer.

Just wondering... It was my understanding that a company can offer a discount for cash, but cannot charge more for using CC. When did charging a retail customer extra for using a CC become decriminalized?

Quoted from cooked71:

As soon as we cleared it dimples everywhere. Categorically wasn't the wood, so must have been the clear.

You should easily be able to support this statement by showing dimpling on the inserts.

On the 34 or so pins I still own, I've yet to see a dimpled insert. Therefore I would be in agreement with CaptainNeo, until other such evidence is presented.
