2 weeks after starting this thread it's time for the weekly poll findings summary:
About 60 new votes were cast in the last week, and despite some 'sold out' reports from outside USA (some of which have yet to be verified), and continued overwhelming positive reviews, including a debut as No. 1 on the Pinside Top 100 listing, the percentages have remained almost identical to last week's.
In the blue corner:
46% of Pinsiders polled (up 1% on the last week) believe that STLE cupboard will be bare sometime between now and mid-March 2014.
On the other hand ...
In the red corner:
A majority of Pinsiders (but dropping slightly in the percentage ranks), 54%, believe the pinnie will still be available to buy NIB after the middle of next year and possibly into 2015 despite rave reviews.
We still have two strong opposing opinions.
Based on posts in various threads it sounds like there are lots of STLEs in Christmas stockings, but when & if STLE sells out completely is probably something we'll have to wait until sometime in the new year to declare.
