503 heads?

Well, it appears that Bogen is backordered on the 503 heads and of course it had to be right when I was in the market for them. I've contacted all of our site sponsors but nobody knows when they'll be back in.

I was just wondering if anyone can point me in another direction as I was hoping to order three of them and as of now...I've got zero. : )

No need to splash non-sponsoring vendor names on the board though. E-mail is fine. Also, if anyone knows how long these "backorder" sessions last, feel free to reply to this thread. Thanks in advance for any help.

The Miller DS5 is a nicer head. More money, though.

Frank,

Yyyeaaaahh....I'm afraid we're stuck with the 503. At least as far as monetarily speaking...

We were set on the 501s and then made the late switch, now we're paying for it because they're out all over the place. Wonderful. ; )

Matthew,

Yep, we've tried Lew from EVS, Chris from ZGC and Tom from Zotz. B&H is no dice either.

well all i can suggest is doing that thing at b&h where they email you when they get it in stock.

i have found that will update you a full day or two before their website says it is available.
