Looks like the Vise Grip and Vapor Trail had their designs updated:

Anybody seen these yet? I was going to pick up a Vise Grip but now I want to be sure I get one of the new designs.

The designs weren't just updated, now they are fully made in the USA. Otherwise, the circuits are the same.

Great news! Now I just have to find one.

Nobody in NYC stocks 'em and all everybody online is showing old pics & not calling out the upgrade. I even emailed SD & got nothing back.

Are these popping up anywhere yet?

The Pickup Booster, too. I don't know how recent this is or whether there's any difference to the (great) circuit.

Can you elaborate a bit? As a Vaportrail owner I am a bit disappointed my pedal was only partially made in the USA.
The older Vapor Trails were assembled here in the US with overseas parts.

The Pickup Booster is assembled in the US, and there might be a few tweaks compared to the older red model. I can't hear a difference, but that brown one looks better to me. :)
