    Lots of folks want a NFTD, so you would get takers for that trade.

    There are also a lot of both sizes of Synapses on eBay, presumably some from folks who are going to switch sizes.

    I don't recall any... so far only 525 ballistic and at least one Parapack... they probably hadn't made any/many yet. There's only one halcyon option in this first pre-order.
