I had a look at an XXL at my Vic agent a few weeks ago, and the housing was clear. (Just a look )
I suspect that being a little less popular than the mainstream 91%u2019s, the LED versions tend to sit a little longer in stock. This may explain finding retail stock with grey housings?
Go on Max you know you want to......
Agreed about the stock/rate of sales point on the XAVT - Who would be mad enough to buy an XAVT
...... well me for one!
.... or XXL - Although I totally agree with Simon's point:
To me it feels as if the XXL lacks soul. Flagships have to be extravagant, overambitious and also a bit crazy in my book, like the ridiculously oversized Giant, the dysfunctional butane gaz lighter-XXLT or the "technology powerhouse"-XAVT. The XXL is just a bigger version of the XLT and as such feels too normal and boring (as well as tremendously overpriced). Actually, it's one direct step back from the XAVT - where is the innovation and audacity in that?
I can't see it being a great seller.
Also agree on your other point about the wrench / clear housing XAVT's being much more desireable than the original ones -
They weren't around for too long in comparison
