Tom Abrahamsson of RapidWinder.com It is almost never that an inventor improves on a Leica product so that it is better than the original Leica product. Tom holds that distinction with his RapidWinder for Leica M rangefinders -- a bottom mounting baseplate trigger advance. In addition Tom manufacturers other Leica accessories such as his very popular Soft Release and MiniSoftRelease shutter releases. Tom is well known as one of the true Leica rangefinder experts, even by Leica. IMPORTANT READ THIS: CWE Forum hosts have moderation powers within their forum.

Exciting. I emailed for one immediately when announced available (and sent my $$). I don't know if it was successful or not. Hopefully in the mail.

Just received mine - They look stellar on an XPro2, but to be honest I can hardly stand to look at it right now. However, it does make the camera so much easier to use, so I'll keep using it and hopefully get used to seeing it in a while. ;-)
