Just called PCB on my July Order. Apparantly they have Einsteins in stock with the rubber band fix and could ship that to me today. But, they are assuming that customers want the true fix, so they'll send that to me instead.
So, my option was rubber band today (and possibly no fix/upgrade as CS said that PCB views the rubber band as operational and not warranting a swap).
or wait for the new faceplate version.. They said the new faceplates will be in stock in several weeks, but even though I ordered in July, there will be many others ahead of me. And, they can't guarantee me a delivery date..
I almost went for the rubber band, but then reminded myself that the mini vagabond nor the Pocketwizard MC2 are available either yet.. So, might as well wait and get everything together in a working state (fingers crossed)
