Yah, good point that a month ago would be early, I was just thinking through Spark R&D. Honestly, if you are early on the MGear list, then you may be better holding out, rather than canceling your order and just getting in a different line now. Don't think of it as mid-season, rather the beginning of when it gets really good in the BC.

Man, I just found out I'm in the same boat... I ordered a pair on Nov. 17th from mountain gear and on the invoice it said they would ship out Dec 2nd. I emailed them this week and was told the new estimated shipping date was 1/31

I received the email below from Spark yesterday and was able to locate a local dealer to snag their last pair of medium Fuses. However, the shop where I got them (All Board Sports in Boulder) said they have a bunch more coming so it might be worth calling them.
Haven't used the new Fuses yet but damn are they light.
Here's the email. Happy hunting:
"Hello Spark fans,
We have had a recent slew of bindings ship out to our dealers, and around 10 AM tomorrow (Thursday December 17th, mountain time) we will be releasing a small number of Fuse to our online store.. some complete bindings and some baseplates. With luck from the delivery fairy.. we should be getting some needed material tomorrow and will have more to post on the store within a few days.. if you miss out, please be patient, no need to email.. we know everyone wants em, and we are cranking along as fast as possible.
The following dealers have been sent Fuse bindings recently:
Prior Snowboards in Whistler, BC; the Back Country in Truckee, California; Hoback Sports in Jackson, Wyoming; Tribute Board Shop in Nelson, BC; White Pine Touring in Park City, Utah; Snowboard Connection in Seattle, Washington; The Mountain Shop in Fort Collins, Colorado; Salty Peaks in Salt Lake City, Utah; Valhalla Pure Outfitters in Revelstoke, BC; Joyride Bikes in Logan, Utah; Attridge Ski & Board in Vernon, BC; Mammoth Mountaineering in California; Red Shred's Bike and Board in Williams Lake, BC; All Board Sports in Boulder, CO; and Gallatin Alpine Sports in Big Sky, MT.
These folks only have certain sizes and quantities at the moment, and as many of you probably are aware, sold out already. If you need more info about these dealers, check out our "Dealers" page on our website:
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please bear with an intermittent problem we are having with international shipping. The selection does not always include USPS P.M.I., and often UPS is a very high cost.. UPS may not offer ground service to many locations.. only Worldwide Expedited, hence the high cost. USPS will deliver most anywhere, so I can refund any difference in ship cost if you purchase the UPS shipping and I can ship it USPS. For some reason Standard Shipping can be an option for $0.00 dollars.. we, under no circumstances ship for free!! Sorry, I may have to send you an invoice for the shipping cost if this is the case. Bottom line.. order what you want and I will work with you for the best shipping option.
Thanks to everybody for your support and enthusiasm for our products. We will keep this list updated in the coming weeks as we build and ship more bindings. Think snow!
