It just easier to stay with N-Y. Sad but true. Ends up working out good for N-Y though.
Its funny, while this 31A stuff is going on, I managed to snag 2 vf-31j Kais. I ordered one then I mulled over getting another which I finally caved a week later. Another week goes by, the valk goes out of stock and a get a shipping notice for the second order. Then it occurs to me that I don't remember getting notified of the first one getting shipped. I go check my order back and sure enough, not shipped. I send them a message asking whats up. I get a response back saying they are so sorry but they are still waiting on stock. I'm like you had stock for like 2 weeks and didn't ship my first one. Then literally an hour later, the valk is back in stock (with no additional markup) and I get a notification that my item has shipped.
Kind of makes you wonder whats going on behind the scenes. If they didn't have enough why did they continue selling it? Why did my second order go through if they didn't have enough. Seems like they are taking orders hoping they will be able to get them through other channels. If that's the case I wouldn't want to work there. It must be stressful.
