USA upgrade: 495 dollars without VTA

European upgrade: 449 Euro's (552,91 dollars) without VTA


That's not fair now is it :(

Oups, made a mistake gents, it's 449.00 Euro's (552, 91 dollars)

I compared the upgrade to 9 with the printed manual!

Thats the point there is no addition on the web site to say upgrade from 8 - 9 and get Vue? Thought I'd missed something.

I already have 8 so until I see upgraade Lightve 8.0 , 8.3 or 8.5 ..TO.. 9.0?
don't look like i'll be getting hold of Vue. 8~

I seem to be missing something here. The second option is for pre-order to LW9 [ie upgrade] for existing LW users and includes delivery now of Vue 5 infinite... Price 259

The second and third option is for upgrading from 8 to 9 and include Vue.

Andy. I really should do that. I enjoyed the first one. Just got tied up with archery most Sundays. .. Well I have to get away from the computer sometime... But would be interesting to catch up with peoples thoughts on LW9.

I think I'm going to be tempted by the Vue offer as well, despite my promises of never handing over my money on pre-orders again.. :rolleyes: but that really does look a cracking deal.
I'll play with the Vue trial over weekend before I make my mind up.. When is the next NWUK meet anyhow...
