Reacher seems to be out and assigned a part number. Our local dealer has ordered, and hopes to receive one next week.

As a well-known Aussie TV advert once said:-
"Tell 'em the price, son".

C'mon Matt, put me out of my misery!

Jees, that is over the top! I bet it won't take long for other suppliers to undercut that huge price for a few pullies, a few clams, a masthead fitting, a snuffer and a lightweight sail.....

I'm ok with $639.00, 10% of the price of a TI, for better than a 10% increase in speed. Gearheads and bikers have paid a lot more in their sport than that, for a smaller increase in horsepower. Just some perspective...

I get that the performance gain is reasonable for the money, but my perspective relates the price to my pension, and on that basis it is very expensive. :(

I hear ya Tonyscott. I was hoping for under $500. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, Hobie charges almost $300 for a milk crate.
