I have just found this article - Maybe this is now the last time you can get one…
Unfortunately, it’s not all good news. According to the rep, this is definitely the end of the line for the Fleshlight Launch. When this batch is gone, it will be gone forever and this new stock is expected to go very quickly. It’s also only going to be available on US sites for now with no promises that it will show up on any sites outside the US in the future.
Glad I made the transition to the OSR2 for sure. It far superior to the Launch in all ways except one imo and that is mobility. I have a feeling the mobility issue may be resolved somewhere down the line.
I hardly even use the Launch any more. It is nice for when a I wreck a servo or when I want to take it to another room (not very often).
They had been going in and out of stock over the last year, so it may be making way for a new Fleshlight launch 2 in the future. I actually just sold a sealed one launch for a little over $600 on ebay a week ago before they posted this restock. Since I have switched to the OSR2, I am much happier with it.
Yeah portability and the easy ability to go hands free (just need a blanket) are the only real perks of a launch at this point. The handy is portable, but requires some work to make hands-free (from what I have seen -I still haven’t bought one because I really like the OSR2).
However, the launch just cannot match either the OSR2 or Handy with performance, which is why I don’t take the launch into account when making free scripts.
In other words, do not buy the launch if you are looking to make a purchase. Money is definitely better spent elsewhere.
I don’t really have the skills to build a OSR2 myself so I hope to keep my Launch for a while more. They don’t seem to hold forever, I actually had two Launch break in the past 3 years. I wonder what is happening actually, Kiiroo don’t sell the Launch anymore.
I’m pretty sure it was Kiiroo that designed and produced the Launch. And Fleshlight tried to make the Quickshot Launch a thing. Maybe those two companies just stopped working together, each one now focusing on their own products.
as an introduction to interactive VR porn ive found the launch to be fantastic, as a product though it is a bag of shit, ive had 2 (have 2) 1 of them has broken twice, the exact same part which ive had to glue back on, i had a refund for it at one point and fixed it so thats a free one basically lol but they are not built to last, im not a technical person but the thing in the back of it that goes up and down is made of shitty plastic and it just cant take much friction because it snaps off
i would love to get something new but for now my launches will have to do, i hope by the time these give up on me there is something new and exciting on the market in the UK
Launch was my first toy of this kind, glad it was on the shops. Did the transition to osr2 a few month ago and its a big improvment. Hope the osr will improved for the next years by tempest and the community and become more available for people who are not builders themself.
Lane became wide open for The Handy creators. They better capitalize before a surprise Launch 2 releases with most of the features we want.
