So I emailed Metadyne back on the 1st about seeing what is going on with my Thumper. I also asked about getting a new spring for my other Thumper. Yesterday, I got an overly taped up envelope with what I believe is the spring for the Thumper that I still have with me. As to my other Thumper, that I sent in to Metadyne back in February, well, this is what he said:

I am still not satisfied with the piston design. We have finally been able to accurately see how the piston is bending. Right now the piston material is being updated and made much larger in diameter. Also the front cap is being redesigned so it lines up flawlessly with the front chamber. Then some more testing and it hopefully will be ready. I know this has been a horrific experience for many, but I will continue to work on it until it is reliable. Now that we have found the source of the bending, it should be an easy fix.

sounds like more markers will have to be sent in for updates with a terribly long return wait.

Might want to hold off on sending the markers back, unless they've posted their new address already.

I tried the email route and now have his personal email, he's been really good about responding so far... I haven't had a reason to call or email him lately except to order another feed tube for my Phantom build though.
