>> It seems two years ago when i was in the same situation, I called them and when asked if would buy two (the molds are in pairs) and informed that if i said yes, they would run the batch in the next run set (I think a week out or something) thats how I got them relatively quick.

>> I called ZG direct. They say "3-4 weeks out" but they won't commit to the date without an order, and won't provide a commitment date on order acceptance either. I suspect ZG is in the process of going out of business, which is what concerns me about the 1st gen SharkSkinz requiring them.

>>> At this point I've had standing orders for 17-156DB-01 for more than 4 months, and every time I call the distributors and they call ZG it's "3-4 weeks out". Since the ZG screens will clearly be 3-4 weeks out until after the season is over, its seems I have no choice but to swap the bodywork for something that uses a screen I can get from multiple sources.
>>> I had a list of places that made SV bodywork, but only Sharkskinz and Hotbodies are still around. Any other choices for the 1st gen SV?
