Yes, the container is scheduled to set sail in early March, which would put it at our warehouse at the end or March or beginning of April.

That's perfect timing and coincides with the flying season. I love summer.

Oh BTW, Congratulations on launching this 59" AJ Slick. I am very happy to see this is coming.

Thanks KM!

One question:
Is there truly no air exit built into your 59" or is it there in a stealthy manner?
