Consider yourself lucky that you didn't order the satin silver version of the Setti. I waited over 2 months for that. Actually, it might have been even longer. I don't remember. Apparently it takes twice as long to finish the inside of the satin silver setti than the others. In any case, the produce units in batches and ship them out to B&H, Adorama, and others, and they just fill them in the order in which they were received. I had to use "plan B" a couple of times when I was waiting for mine.
Yeah, but then you wouldn't have the sweet silver setti (mine is silver, and I love it that way)

ive been trying to buy one for months
I just had went ahead and bought one (knowing it was on backorder) and I had one 2 weeks later. I think that the demand for Molas is high enough, that B&H/Adorama never really keeps any in stock, as they're shipped out to the customer right away. Certainly not based on any knowledge/facts, but moreso because I can't remember the last time I've seen a setti in stock.

It's true, the satin silver finish is finished. Only white now or the polished silver finish of the beamm. The satin silver was in a lot less demand. About 1:100 units sold silver : white.basically the silver was created due to the profoto European distributor demand.
So I now really regret selling my silver setti to my friend
Wow. I'm amazed that they beamm is more popular than the satin silver (come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen an image lit by a beamm...). I've got a silver setti, and I love it that way. If I were to get a mantti, I'd want that in silver too. It's really too bad that they've killed that option.
