I won't comment on performance because that is something better discussed by those who listen to it. Suffice to say, the fact that it is less than he (and other dealers) expected is exactly as we would like it.

Finally back on line here in Singapore! Smile

Hmmm, four pages! Even more interest than I'd expected....

Anyway, I have to say that when I saw it, I was thinking circa £250.00. So just a little over £200.00 plus the dreaded VAT! However, when I was told that the guys were aiming at £195.00 Inc VAT. - A figure I see is confirmed now, there was only one comment I made............ When will I be getting some ?

As you may have gathered, I bagged the pre-production weight on Tuesday and cleared off to the Far East. Today I conducted my first demo:

I built a pretty much full spec LP12 with Se and Akiva here today - All new except for the owner's Akiva. It was somewhere over 90F and very humid (no aircon) during the build, and so once installed and running for a couple of hours, I swapped the counterweights for him................ I was using the lighter of the two additional weights and this resulted in the counterweight being much closer to the pivot point. Let's just say the difference was clear and my client would like one ASAP.

Pictures soon, if I can manage to upload via this dongle, which is having a go - slow!Rolleyes

Kind regards

Thanks for the kind words.

Yep, I will be sending a batch over to Chris, I will keep you all posted.

Regards, Mark

Thanks Mark.

I have an Akiva on a black Ekos, does the sKale come in black?

Derek

Now I'm confused - hasn't this question already been asked and answered - perhaps the post didn't incorrectly spell Akiva and you missed it. Wink

RE: A question of sKale?
Indeed it has been answered in Post #13, on page 2, It comes in black too.
Mark,please allocate my CW to Peter's next delivery. The whole thing just looks so right IMHO.

A testament to your team's skills in actually making it look like part of the original Ekos SE design, no mean feat.
