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.

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 That may be why it was withdrawn.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.

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

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.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
