I agree, I own 9 Stern plus SM sold so out of 18 total pins I've owned 10 Stern
But their lack of code particularly bug fixes and basic polish have got me fed up.
Their cost cutting such as cheap locking mechanisms on STLE for the head and lack of basic PF support.
I always buy PF support for $60 or whatever they cost and put them on my pro pins but now I found on Met pro they stopped putting in the recieving screw hole in the PF like they had in the past, I mean it's insulting cost cutting.
My main think is code not being completed ever and QC issues which fortunately for me have been few, but my last new pin from Stern was IMVE
I think they're a bunch of greedy buggers with the prices they want for such things as toppers or tower mod for TWD which should have been included in the first place IMO
