    Why does Europe have to pay more then the USA for an upgrade to NINE?

    USA upgrade: 495 dollars without VTA

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


    That's not fair now is it

    If English is your first language, you should know it's 'losing' and not 'loosing'!

    What's even weirder:

    without manual 395 dollars <-> 395 euros
    with manual 495 dollars <-> 449 euros
    Your FIRST impression NEVER gets a SECOND chance !!!!

    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.

    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

    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.. 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...
