Have been looking to buy the DMM dragon #8 and wanted to see if there was any info out there about when they would be available. I last heard 'spring 2018' but seeing as that's starting I figured there would be a more refined date out there.

'Spring' can mean as late as May or June when it comes to hard goods.

Apparently some folks have bought it on Campsaver but it’s back ordered until mid April. I also am itching for those sizes as well.

Heard March in a video on UKC I think? I'll let you know when CS ships them.

They are already receiving orders from retailers and expecting to start the shipping in the end of March, begin of April.

I just placed mine on back order through my local gym - I'm not sure what distributor they use... late April to early May was the time frame as of yesterday.

I know its only early April but does anyone have an update?

There’re out. At least I saw them on mountain gear or something

Checked mountaingear and they don't have them. Called them too. No big deal, I can wait but ill keep a close eye on this thread

DMM is expecting to deliver the order to my gym in the beginning of may.

Question:  How stiff is the stem on that big green sucker?  It looks like it is already off-kilter a bit. Fantastic lines on it though...

Douglas Kempthorne · · Cincinnati, OH · Joined Jul 2015 · Points: 140

Yeah the #8 has a slight bowing from shipping, but nothing significant. Stems are slightly less flexible than a C4, way more flexible than an ultralight.

Figures. I just bought a BD#5 a few weeks ago because these were taking too long to come out. I prefer my dragons to my C4.

Time for Wild Country to come out with the equivalent sizes in the New Friends!

Khoi, that is what the "Technical Friends" are for.
