I finally had the chance and decided against pulling the trigger.  I think I'm going to wait and see how Phil's new razor comes along.

I've been signed up for several months now to be notified of this product being back in stock and I didn't get an email. Frustrating!

On eBay in a week plus 25% I bet.

Frustrating is right.

Wonder how many were available this time. Is the Classic out of production for good?

I'd say closer to +50%. I know both offers I got on my WTB where $350+...

Yes, I wonder if people buy simply with the view to turning a quick buck... ? Dodgy

I have found their customer service to be less than desirable, which is why I will never own one...

I had some irregularities with my KIng Cobra order a few months back, and they bent over backwards to make it right. When technology fails, it is frustrating, but at the end of the day, there is really no "fair" way to meet demand for a product like that.

I don't think there is much wondering to be done, looking at B/S/T history and eBay it is clear that several people purchase just to profit.  I understand the entrepreneurial spirit, but it sure was frustrating to me before I was able to score one myself.

Not anymore!  Angry

This thread kind of defeats the purpose of being on the waitlist...

I happened to be sitting at my computer when I heard my phone alert, so I figured I'd better check my email before I left for supper.  Low and behold I have an email stating the Classic Cobra is back in stock.  I told myself to take a look just for fun.  There were only 4 left when I got to the site.  I decided a few months ago to hold out for the RX and that that would be my last razor purchase for the remainder of the year.  Well, after paying for my new Cobra I decided to stay home and eat as it would be much cheaper.  Apparently I have the same will power as a fat girl who happens by a Ben & Jerry's store.

Agreed. I received a "Back in Stock"  notification at 1939, read it at 2039, hit the link:  Out of Stock.  This is more of a random chance, than anything else.  It would be better to create a waiting list.  IMHO.  I'll keep trying.

So, they maintain a wait list and put them up for open sale too?

Does kind of sound counter intuitive.

Oh well, soon there will be many more options on the market and options will be broader.

Just keep an eye on eBay. There will be plenty in the next week or two. At a premium, of course... :-/
