I guess my concern is putting out this new line prematurely without proper testing which probably would have discovered the air flow issue. Backwoods has a facebook page and a dedicated forum and they haven't put anything out about the changes that are confirmed. No need to take a breath I would expect any consumer would want the best product available so I think the 30 G2 owners might have an.issue to know that they paid the same price as someone who buys one that has the bugs worked out. Still excited and say a prayer everynight that I get a deliver notification the next day.
Not trying to hijack a G2 thread, but this is how I kind of feel about the Gater. Another hybrid BWS not featured on the website or much info in the forum. I'm thankful Kevin was able to fill me in its attributes before I made my decision, and the few Brethren owners that I pestered that gladly answered my questions, but I really could not find any info out there. Then when I got mine it seemed a lot of folks were selling used Gaters. I came across a few old posts with pics of Gaters with vents placed differently than the new models and when I inquired about them I never got any responses, so I kinda chalked it up to design mods.
