BENEFITS

  • A ‘Scaffolder’ can now easily read the Horizontal Bubble via the EndView Mirror whilst making overhead adjustments directly from the Standard with no strain or difficulty whatsoever simply by looking into the End of the level. And ‘Yes’ you can actually see the bubble positioned half way down the length of a 6M Ledger when centred on the Sag in the Tube! Even in the dark!
  • When viewing directly from above on low level work, when Basing Out for example, the ‘EndView Mirror’ can now be fully retracted to provide a nice clear unobstructed ‘TopView’.
  • The Proview Firefly is the same size as the Stabila type 81 and it has also been specifically designed to fit existing Frogs.

UNIQUENESS

  • ProView is the only Level Technology in the World specifically designed to level ‘Away’ from the User (i.e. Front to Back) via its unique ‘EndView’ feature, making it ideal for Scaffolding amongst many other Trades.

Background

X-PRO BOUNCES BACK WITH THE FIREFLY!

The ProView Dragonfly V1 was the first ever Project successfully Crowd-Funded via BizKit-Tin, hitting shelves in Aug 2014. Immediately getting rave reviews it was also quickly upgraded to the V2, (Both the V1 and V2 are now Discontinued).
Sadly, a small percentage had minor teething problems, easily fixable in the next run, but they spoiled what was an otherwise great product launch.

During this period the project also suffered a serious setback after discovering our distributor had been turning away all the buyers we had been sending them, putting the project out of commission and taking us another three years to refinance and get to a point where we can restart. We believe this was an intentional act intended to put the project out of business!

MOVING FORWARD
Wanting to put these early production issues right and still aiming to create the perfect product, the V2 was scrapped and a replacement product was completely redesigned from scratch, even adding additional new features, resulting in the new Firefly Scaffolders Level in 2018, and this has continued to evolve into the product you can see here in this website!

Scheduled originally to arrive in January of 2019, the project was again stonewalled by those already in the Spirit Level industry, causing several months of unnecessary delays and further setbacks, until production was finally Started in January of 2019, where we’d also decided to shift production to the UK and take control of production for ourselves to prevent any more deliberate delays. Production has now been commissioned and we were expecting first product in Late May. Everything was finally Ordered on Jan 17th, 2019, and everything went swimmingly with all Metal Frames and other hardware parts arriving at the end of June, a little later than expected, but no real issues!

The Plastics Supplier on the other hand left a lot to be desired, with constant delays and excuses, poor workmanship and even worse quality of parts? Having received first samples around late April to early May, they were given a long list of jobs to do to correct the parts, but when they finally came through as supposedly finished at the end of July, after endless excuses and delays, they had done virtually nothing to them other than change the material colour. I had no choice but to fire the company and start searching for another supplier in early August 2019, 7 months after giving the initial Order! Of course, I am gutted, not only for the lost time and money paid for the deposit, but more for the Customers still waiting for their products!

The dilemma: Restarting instantly introduces a minimum 35-day Re-Tooling schedule, plus the test and tweak time and the production time too, so this will add at least another 60 days to the wait? However, I felt there was no choice but to take this action, as otherwise I believe I'd still be waiting in six to twelve more months? Everything else is already delivered and waiting for assembly, only the Plastics needed to be re-ordered. Thankfully they finally arrived from the Factory on the 13th November 2019, so assembly could finally begin. Only the Firefly Illumination Packs were still in production and they arrived in early December. The first to be shipped to our long awaiting Customers left on December 7th and arrived with them just before Christmas! By end of January 2020 all the Pre-Ordered Products will be delivered, and at the time of writing this update only three Customers were still outstanding. Possibly with their products stuck in their local Customs, or the Tracking Systems had not yet been updated?

The full list of Firefly modifications over the Dragonfly are as follows.
• A complete redesign and mirrored reversal of the Body with the entire mid-section being moved further down allowing the EndView Adjuster to open wider for a clearer TopView.
• A wider EndView to get those chubbier fingers in to more easily clean the adjustable mirror.
• Reducing the EndView side wall height to further increase TopView visibility.
• The EndView Adjuster split into two parts, trapping the Mirror in between. No Tape!
• The PlumbView Retainers now completely cover the Mirrors at both ends. No Tape!
• The addition of our new Hands-Free Bungee Tie feature allowing a 6mm cord to be inserted for ‘Non-Magnetic’ surfaces like Aluminium Scaffolding, Timber Posts and Plastic Pipes. Simply tie a knot in one end, wrap around the job and hook into the specially designed quick-release slots provided.
• The two round Dragonfly N42 Grade Magnets merged into one larger Firefly N52 Grade Magnet, possibly the most powerful Magnet ever used in a 250mm Spirit Level. During tests, a single Firefly Magnet was able to pick up a 4ft steel scaffold tube, and two can lift an 8ft.
• The introduction of the new Firefly Pack for Vial Illumination. With replaceable batteries.
• Resizing of the Firefly Pack cavity to accept a second N52 Grade Neodymium Rare Earth Magnet if needed.
• The addition of a new built-in Spare Mirror/Battery Case to carry a spare set of Mirrors and Batteries if needed.
• The addition of a built-in Allen Key Slot to carry an Allen Key (Supplied) to assist with on the job maintenance.
• The addition of a 6mm thread for our new Ball Hanger mounting, making it ready to fit our new Belt Clip when it arrives, which is currently in the design phase

NOTE: THIS SPECIAL RE-LAUNCH PROMOTION IS DIRECT TO END-USERS ONLY! – IT IS NOT AVAILABLE VIA RE-SELLERS LIKE DISTRIBUTORS OR RETAILERS OR ANY OTHER WEBSITES.
