I also heard animus will be having something new in the next few months too. Hopefully the G5. I'm just frustrated how behind we are with the tools.

I agree, unfortunately it has not been released in Canada and were not sure if it will :s

see now i have seen reviews and dex 4 reviewed better then 5...but it is bidy chemistry and user preferences. when you want a product here just think New Yorj city and L.A. have as many people as all of Canada. companies will always spend money to put their product where it will sell more.
