    Will do. This reminds me, I'm supposed to set up an automated reminder system on the site today.

    Don't worry they are coming. When we get them in you will be the first to know.

    So, I was at work and my team has heard me talk about how bad I want one of these and all the Facebook posts I’ve made... then today one of them said they saw it for sale. I ran over to exotac website for disappointment. Then she sent me a link. I guess battlebox had extra! So I ordered one. It was $44 after $10 shipping and handling. Worth it for a good piece of exotac gear. Now @EXOTAC make it in orange and I’ll buy a second!

    So after I ordered I decided to check the website without the link. I checked all of the pages in each category of the shop and did not see the ripspool listed. That concerned me... but... today it shipped!!!

    yikes.......$34 USD for the RipSpool (not bad!) PLUS $38 USD to ship to canada - YIKES! Almost $100 CDN, not including duties

    NOPE. I'll wait for local dealers to carry them.

    $38 USD shipping - i can mail a cylinder head for my diesel jeep cheaper than that......lol...where do these guys figure $38 USD for a 1 oz keychain sized item is appropriate?

    someone casually mentioned via email that it seemed like I was crapping on Exotac for their prices......FAR FROM IT......I love the products Exotac is making!!!!!

    I was crapping on resellers/retailers that GOUGE buyers in the shipping costs. $38 USD to mail a 1.5 oz keychain sized piece of aluminum.....<<<<<THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS. Last year I literally mailed a 50lb CYLINDER HEAD from a diesel engine, from Canada to the USA for only a few bucks. WHY does a little tiny , sub 3" piece of aluminum (RipSpool) cost so much to mail? (not Exotacs issue......its the resellers.......)

    I agree with you. I was fine with the exotac price tag but I debated about the $10 shipping. I mean I can send 3 day priority for $6 and the post office gives the boxes away for free. If it makes you feel better I didn’t take it as you bashing exotac, shipping internationally is getting stupid
