So I've been longingly eyeing a Smart Alec for the better part of a month now (such is the plight of all TBAS afflicted persons), going with my daily routine of looking at the forums, looking at the product page, configuring it over and over again (must have had three different configurations in my Wish List at one point)... I noticed today that the Steel Dyneema/Steel/Wasabi option is now gone, leaving only the Nordic/Nordic/Steel and Steel/Steel/Steel as the only available models. Everything else (all Ballistic Nylon models) is on back-order until late August.
Presumably that means there is a big production run scheduled for Smart Alecs going on now/soon to build the 6 listed BN colour combinations. Sadly, the trend based on the listed colours and removal of Steel/Steel/Wasabi is there really isn't going to be much in terms of interior colours (particularly for the 400d Dyneema outers) outside of Steel. On the BN side, it's Steel, a couple Wasabi, and an Iberian (still love that colour). I've seen people's photos of lovely Ultraviolet interior BN SA's, and I thought I'd even seen Solar somewhere (could be wrong though). The Synapse 19 and 25 both have Steel, Solar, Wasabi, and Ultraviolet options with the 400d outer.
Will we be seeing any brighter interiors coming back to the Smart Alec?
