Under "coming soon" (which should mean committed, and actually a real schedule to happen in the near future, which apparently is not true) there are actually 3 subcategories:
Coming Soon from Precision Scale Company These products are nearing completion and are almost ready for delivery. In most cases you can still reserve one of these, but we encourage you to do so soon!This makes sense of course.... the normal definition of the words.
Future Releases from Precision Scale Company These products are definitely in production but are farther out on the production schedule. The dates listed are estimates and are subject to change because of the complexities involved. Reserve one through your friendly PSC dealer! I cannot see how they are in "production" from the normal sense of the word. Production, meaning being produced as we speak. Clearly they are interested in producing them, but no real schedule or commitment. Aristo used the same terminology for something that was coming in about 5 years. Why can't they say, we are interesting in making these if enough people send money ahead of time.
New Announcements from Precision Scale Company These products are on the drawing board and we would like to do them. They'll go into production only if we get enough reservations for them through our network of dealers. If you'd like to see these models in production please reserve one today; if we don't get enough interest we'll withdraw these models until we get sufficient interest. Wow, how can these even be called announcements? Basically it should read, well, if we make all the stuff already listed, maybe we might make these. Send money. We'll see.
