I hope a MV2 does come out soon as I want a Ghost but I don't want a rooted door latch.
Well, you're back to the 3 year mark which I've been touting for the last year. IMO, 2 years is the average update cycle, but it is not necessarily an "about time" timeframe.
GV's mostly keeps their lips sealed as to what's going on behind the scenes, so I don't see no denial as indication of a new version.
So how about it Ghost? Why not tell us? The only reason not to tell us is because they may think they will sell more MV1's if they don't tell us...
Not the only reason, but that certainly is a good benefit as a business. Especially one that only has one main product.
Another good reason is to a avoid disappointment if it does end up taking longer than expected to release, then they are in the clear about not delivering on an expected timeframe.
Personally, I haven't had the extra money to spring for one.Otherwise I think I would have definitely spring on this awesome sale. Even with the latch issues, the 5 year warranty and customer service is enticing.
If I were running one of these vape companies I would NEVER make any new model roadmap projections.
I have seen this play many times here.
First thing that happens is members start acting like they are a group of 10k small kids in the back seat needing to pee badly.
“Are we there yet” “are we there yet” “are we there yet”. Ad nauseam.
Nope, I would do exactly as S&B and Ghost.
It's also funny to me that some (odd?) devotion to a company leads some to advocate against their own interest, e.g., why not put pressure on ghost to let us know something we all want to know...?
No one is going to bug them after that. To the degree people do, it just creates/generates interest in the company and products
Again not asking for time frames or a "road map projection
I asked if a MV2 was in the works at all?
No one is going to bug them after that.
Respectfully disagree. I'm not asking for a date, nor time frame. Nor am I asking about specific changes or redesigns. I'm asking is ghost working on a second unit at all??
And they can decide this "business decision" however they want, but answering whether or not your working on another unit does not harm the business. In reality, I gave specific examples about how them not answering in my case actually does harm them for one sale. At present, its about a month before the FW6 comes out. I dont need any more vaporizers (like everyone else here, lol). If there is a MV2 in the works, I won't buy a FW6, however. If I buy a FW6, I'm not buying a MV2.
Furthermore, think about this way: It's no secret any good car has a new model coming out the next year. And it will be better (well that's not so much true any more with all the EPA mandated crap, but the point is the same).
That knowledge does not stop customers from buying. It doesn't reduce sales either.
Why is it a secret to keep from your potential customers whether or not you're even working on a new model vaporizer???
How would this change if you knew a MV2 was being worked on?
- You could buy a MV1 still. Or,
- You could wait some unknown amount of time, knowing at some point it's likely the MV1 price would drop some amount. Or,
- Or you'll buy a MV2 later.
- Actually, knowing an MV2 won't be around for a while may entice you to buy a MV1 now...
- And telling us would--in effect--quell some negative rumors that the sale is because the company is not doing well!
Stated really simply, unless ghost is on the edge of bankruptcy-strapped-for-cash right now, why do they care when you spend your money on them?
Wouldnt they feel better about letting their customers make an informed decision?
Weren't people above saying it was unethical to sell units and not have replacement batteries?
If ghost is not telling us in an effort to get some people to buy two units, when such customers would not have done so had they known a second unit was in the works, how is this any different?
(And I'm NOT saying it's a matter of ethics, just that it's a ridiculous secret to keep cause there is no REAL reason to keep such a secret... it's only in their mind if they think sales are going to drop if let us know whether or not their working at all on a second model.)
GHOST's reply was, "Our Engineering Department is currently at work on new products". No time frame given, (which I wouldn't expect).
100% smell proof and several ways to use.....take sixteen crucibles with ya......take eight and use the the other eight spots for your spent crucibles......love mine....hope it helps.....
Well, then I just kind of wonder WTF you think a new model road map projection is?
Wow, we must hang on different threads on this board because that's about all I see when vendor shares some info.
When you run a vape company you are certainly free to do as you please.
I doubt at 67 that I'm ever going to start up a vape company, but if I did....then as I stated is what I would do....without hesitation.
