Today i got an unexpected phone call from Don at Loon Audio. Which is funny when you think of how in the last year you had to call him about 5-6 times a day to maybe just maybe hear him pick up just once. And now he's calling me out of the blue, oh have the tides have turned. He was calling to check on all of his poles he had sold in the last year. He apologized again for his here or there responses, and was proud to say he has gotten his shop back up to speed. He moved to CA but then his business took a tumble and he packed up and headed back to Montana to his old shop. Hes now gotten back up to speed and is ready to start pushing out his great product again. When he told me this, i was happy for him and for us! May loon start pumping out those poles we love to use. He said he was going to be updating his website in a couple weeks. Thumbs up.
Whenever my Loon pole gets wet, I take it apart and dry it. But I've never paid much attention to the wing until it crapped out on me last week. Turns out the MXLR was quite corroded. Now that I think about it, it does make sense; pointed up as it is, it's much more susceptible to the elements than other poles. Other than having to Dremel off one of the two protruding guides along the circumference to match the original XLR, it's an easy repair. An ounce of prevention...
