Appreciate it. I'm nearly at the point where I'm about to put in a preorder on this guy, but that's the one detail that I'm holding out on. But I'm only giving Takara until Jan 1st to provide an alternative, or I think I'll go this guy regardless. Sorry to hear about the shoulder issues in your review. Have you tried seeing a physical therapist? They might be able to help some, I used to have issues with a frozen shoulder that has been mostly worked out thanks to seeing one.
