That's good news -- still not up on Axiom's website for general distribution.

Oh, good. Just in time for Christmas. I get to drop a couple of grand on me, my toy, and then have to scramble for cash for the rest of the family. As much as I'm happy, I'm sad. Looks like I'll be waiting 'till next spring, get the Christmas bills out of the way, save up the nickles and dimes all over again, then maybe I can justify the outlay for the Outlaw. I had the funds set aside, but after such a long delay, other "priorities" have come along and the larder is depleted. Oh well, such is life.

Are we at the two minute - er - 60 day - warning yet?

I think that technically the 60-day period started ticking away some time in September, although the R-972's launch has continued to be rather clouded in mystery...

I guess there are really two dates here to consider - the first being the "60 day after SN R-972" release date, which is a date "cast in stone" by some form of agreement between the companies. The second is a "when it is ready to release" date, which can't be before the "60 day" date but could be anytime from soon after that to long after that. Any chance we could get a firm date from anyone on when the "60 day after SN R-972" date started, without suggesting that the Outlaw 997 release date will be exactly 60 days after that?

In mid-September, Sherwood announced the launch of the R-972. That would seem to be the most likely date to start the clock, putting the 60-day mark in mid-November. It won't be before that, I dare say.

There was a CEDIA announcment on 9/9 that the 972 was being released 9/10, so that ought to be the date.
