The blue one is available to pre-order on Amazon UK at £39.99 which at today's exchange rate is $51.83. Import duty hiking up the price as usual as they sell for $32.95 at blade-HQ
I hope the uk price goes down - I really fancy trying the armbar drive out.
Update on my warranty case: As far as I can tell Gerber has received my Armbar. Now waiting till I hear back from them
Oh... ok... so it'll take a while still.Thanks for the update Sir
I heard back from the warranty team. According to them the tension of the tools (bit driver, scissors and awl) „fall within the guidelines we have set for this type of tool“. This means, imho, the tool works as expected. To be clear, the tension on my tool wasn‘t even close to the snap we are used to from SAKs or the PST for example. I could wiggle the tool implements in their extended state without any resistance whatsoever. This also means I will ask for a refund, because I would just get another one that works the same way. A shame, I really liked the concept. Hopefully one of you guys gets a better one
I wonder if they said the tension was within tolerances to avoid a lawsuit....Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
My interest has vanished as well. I still hope that some of our members, that already ordered one, will receive one with snap. At least that would mean there is a chance to get one of those. Maybe we will see them at stores soon, so we can get a better picture of what is out there
I just stumbled across this Armbar Drive review.The same problem is being confirmed at minute 9:18 https://youtu.be/EzowtRC_UvY
If it sells, do they really care about a few enthusiasts on a forum? At least we can form good opinions and advise one another... trying not to be cynical, but once a manufacturer commits to a design and (typically) outsources volume production, it’s a costly exercise to make changes early in the product lifecycle. If it’s popular, there should be an improved version 2 once they’ve made some profit. The general public will not be quite as demanding as us forum folk.
