When Will Conid Bring Back The Caiso System?

Recommended Posts

I contacted Conid back in April '19 to ask when they expected to reintroduce the CAISO system to their Kingsize pens, and Jonas wrote back to say it is definitely coming back but gave no date, it's awaiting improved engineering....

 

Does anyone have any updated info on when this feature will be returning? And if you have a pen with it installed, is it worth waiting for?

I've seen various estimates from Conid but those dates have come and gone. I've been waiting for the pen since it was first announced (2017?). I like to wait a couple months to make sure the kinks are worked out from new tech and those few months are turning into a few years. Fortunately I have plenty of other pens to play with.

I have ordered mine in april 2017 and had it delivered in june 2017. It has been in rotation permanently .

 

I like the concept and the technical aspect and I'm sure it is definitely worth waiting for. The waiting will get you something rather special...

There are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

I just received an email response to my inquiry at Conid about the return of CAISO, and, with many apologies for the late response due to overwhelming email volume, was told that CAISO has been put on hold with no established return to production date. It would appear that their first challenge is upsizing their operation to meet current demand, and from the message chatter on these fora it is clear there is a lot of frustration in the pen community with that.

If you don't mind my asking, what was the time lag between asking the question and getting the response?

A CAISO is one of the few pens I still plan on buying and I just bought another pen so a little longer delay from Conid is okay with me.

I had two Caisos. Stupidly, I sold one because I intended to get the new edition. Looks like that may not be possible now.

 

Oh well, I still have the second pen. That was a thank you gift from Conid (what they call a "Masterpiece" item) because of some testing I did. I am very attached to that Caiso.

 

Is it worth waiting for? In my opinion, the Caiso does not function any better than a Kingsize - unless you are into aerobatics. Because of the tricky bits, it is certainly more finicky. That may be why it was withdrawn. Given that all the Conids are good performers and come from a company that deserves our respect, why wait?. Unless, of course, you like techy things and rare pens.

I asked them Sept 28 and got my response Nov 6.

I just received newsletter from Conid regarding their bulkfiller production today. They are putting a hold on any new orders until May 2020 to alleviate their backlog.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
