Any update on when the retrokit will be available? We were all promised Q3, and nothing was said or delivered to us during that time frame. We are now in Q4.

I second this question. And Yoder Herb is very quiet about this.

I third this question. What is the delay and why is Yoder Herb not providing any information. First it was Q3 then late Q3 now its Q4 and still no upgrade. Where is the communication on what's going on? The suspense is killing me....

It's now available. I received the email this morning and had the new ACS controller ordered within 1 hour. I have the YS 1500 and couldn't order the controller without upgrading the igniter and fire grate. I can't wait for this to show up!

Yup. Same here. Clicked the link and ordered as soon as I got the email. Looking forward to it. As soon as it was announced, I sold my Tappecue and went into the Fireboard ecosystem.

I ordered the burn grate and ceramic igniter as well. Although, I have a hard time seeing any difference in the burn grates "redesigned airflow for more efficient heating" Looks almost the exact same. I'm wondering now if I should have spent $100 less and not gotten those 2 upgrades. Nothing wrong with mine now.
