    Well all that secrecy for nothing.

    Considering all the buzz of late, I guess the real question is "how long till we get one fitted for a Blackbird?"
    The site does look very nice; well done mystery man!
    Trust nobody!

    I'll be taking my KAQ on it's first ride on my airhead next weekend! It's not much of an issue.

    Official announcement coming soon along with a separate forum for the KAQ. I am very pleased to have taken ownership of this fine product!

    With some easy modifications, it would work fine. The standard KAQ is asym cut to match the Hennessy Hammock. To fit a Speer, I would make it more barrel shaped. Same price though. If you order one, just let me know that you have a Speer.

    Indeed, I am interested in this as well. I might purchase one when I get the money to get my BB too.

    Hopefully not too long. The first production KAQ is in the box for shipping tomorrow (will go on a Claytor). The 2nd will be right behind that and then one for a Speer. If I had a BB to play with........the only thing that has me puzzled on the BB is that footbox. I'd need to see one up close to figure out how to cover that area.

    I will most likely be looking at making this a 1/2 to 3/4 length UQ and not a full length one like the KAQ Potomac.
