I just went to their site to check the price on the PST, accidentally found some colored Raptors, I'd seen the Cabelas (not sure here  :think:) green (not sure here either :facepalm:) version but wasn't aware of the blue and red versions. And indeed, not many new new stuff.

That Collector's Edition PST is even a worse money grasp attempt than the TTC's Charge with sterling scales (https://txtoolcrafters.co...andles-limited-run-of-100)

Brilliant... they are going to sell those PSTs like hot candies and at that price they don't need to worry of anybody using/breaking them.
Making the Wave/Charge Plus at increased price is a smart move too... Gives an excuse to raise the price.

Hmm  :think: :think:

500 PSTs raided from the parts bin will add $137K to LM's coffers

......Do I really need to say anymore?  :facepalm:

I think my respect for Leatherman has hit rock bottom.

Business is business I know, but geez, give us a break!! .........I can almost feel leathermans rubber glove up my arse!!

This is disappointing. I think Tim’s sone is running the company now. It seems like both QC and innovation are really taking a hit.

So... an over priced collectors edition. Two models for the same price as the modded tools that people have been making for how long? A new sheath. And an overpriced watch with a bracelet that is too big for probably two thirds of the human population.

TIM! COME BACK!

Admittedly, there is only so much innovation possible with a pliers based tool, but this is just sad.

I've said it before, despite how sad it may sound, I think the time of Leatherman has come and now it is gone. Better get some extra hours in to save $$$ for some new Gerbers!

They were confident enough in the Rebar head to put it in the Signal. Why not the Wave and Charge?

Surely it would be easier to set up and much more cost efficient to just have the Rebar head in them, and replace the scissors with the awl, so that the handles can close properly, or just shorten the scissors handle, which is what people have been doing since the Rebar came out. Or have the awl inside, and have the Wingman scissors replace a long tool outside.
Or do them all, and people can buy whichever model they want.

Having the Wave head hollowed to death is not the solution I was hoping for.

I don't know. The Tread has never been my cup of tea, and the Tempo is awfully high priced. I suppose, if the watch itself is quality and has a 25 year guarantee, maybe it's worth it?

I'm a huge PST fan and have lobbied its return to market, but this more than 3 times a reasonable price for a daily carry.

Mainly, we can't ask Leatherman to "go back to basics" and then be critical of the "lack of innovation" at Shot 2018. It was 3 years between the PST and the Mini, wasn't it? Then it was something like 8 more years before the SuperTool came along, and two more before the PSTII and Micra...every year can't be a banner year.

Besides, how can we criticize Leatherman for responding to customer feedback and placing new plyer heads on the Wave, making the Tempo, and dropping Velcro in favor of snaps on the nylon sheath? Slow and steady May not be flashy, but wins the race.

I hope they bring the PST back in a real run and reduce the price to about $70. I do like the new snap nylon sheaths, and maybe they will sell the PST leather sheath separately.

BTW, I own an original Surge. Does this mean that every Surge from 2013 on should be retro named the Surge +?

Also, are they continuing production of the regular Wave, hence the need for the "+" delineation?

This reaction is way too sensible and in no way worthy of an internet response!

Leatherman is giving the fans what they have asked for on this forum but some will complain.
Okay, the PST is waaaay overpriced but 500 fools (like me) will shell out their hard earned cash for it .
