    I feel like I've seen that people have it, but on the website it still says for pre-order only?

    If anyone who has it wants to talk about it here, I'm all ears! :)

    They just say "pre-order" because there's a wait time.

    The demand is too high for them to have any in-stock, so they start building your Flint when you "pre-order" it.

    EDIT: They might not start on your Flint until well after you pre-order. :rolleyes:

    I ordered mine late the first night it came out and haven't received it yet.

    Here comes my first ever smiley. Alas, it's not smiling.

    Has anyone received any timeline information on when Strymon is expecting to ship the Flints? It seems like you guys may have ordered your pedals a few weeks before me.

    I think I read last week it was going to be a few more before any started shipping. Someone had emailed Strymon directly to ask. I'm waiting as well after ordering on the 11th this month.

    I ordered my Flint on June 4 & emailed Strymon for an order status on July 21. Rick from Strymon promptly replied on July 23 with this response . . . "We're expecting a large batch of Flint pedals to start arriving this week. This next batch will be large enough to fulfill all back orders over the course of the week into next so your pedal should absolutely go out with this next batch." Today I got an order update from Strymon advising that my order has been updated to "Awaiting Shipment" :banana

    Mine finally shipped today. #16120

    I got an email from Rick at Strymon yesterday. He said they've been working on getting a batch big enough to fulfill all backorders.

    Can't wait. Actually I did wait. For seven weeks and counting. Here comes my first smiling smiley:

    :)

    Hey there, we are fulfilling a large number of the Flint pre-orders, in the order in which they were received. It's possible the email notification to you was delayed. This batch of orders should all ship within the next few days, so yours will likely be coming very soon. Thanks!

    I hope so. Appreciate the response. Not mad bro :) just confused at the status of my order and I have now heard from 2 people after my order number and 2 others on the gear page after my order number who claim theirs is shipped. It kind of is a bummer after waiting over a month, which is not a huge amount of time but some of us are excite :mob

    you should call or email strymon, something's not right.

    i ordered one in late june (number 171xx). today i got an email from strymon about an order status update, only to log on to their site and see that my order had been cancelled. Turns out that if a payment authorization isn't filled within 30 days, the payment expires (this was paypal). Strymon said to reorder it and they'll ship it now, I'm not supposed to lose my place in the queue.

    maybe email from strymon landed in your spam folder? :dunno

    EDIT: wrote this before ethan responded above
