Gentle Typhoons aren't made by Scythe, they probably wont be going anywhere.

"Scythe USA had to make a difficult decision to end its operations as a result of the closure of its parent company."

Could that be servo that closed it's doors.

I wonder if anyone will acquire the patent for the AP series or if folks from Scythe will create a new company and new brand with similar products.
