Open baffle?

If I'm not mistaken, prior to Vapor Ryan built a pair of open baffles based on a RAW design; is it conceivable that Vapor might offer an open baffle at some point in the future?

I've always thought that OB was interesting; I think Ryan's tried it and isn't happy with the overall performance. I have drawings of my basic Nimbus OB,  with an added 15" on top. Because of the huge size and cost (and lack of enthusiasm from others) I ended up abandoning the idea. As a side note, because of Vapors Meteorological theme, I was going to call my giant OB design "Sharknado". Because it was sooo over the top.

I know Vapor has other priorities right now, but at the time Ryan had built the OB2X, he seemed fairly impressed with the overall result.

Got any pictures of the Sharknado?  :D

Artists renderings are all I did with the "Sharknado". Although, there were quite a few people that seemed interested in an OB Nimbus.
