Did you ask Gabor if he could make you one of the dual bar "Stirrup" style levers?
I really want one.

@amberale, being a Caravel user, I really like that lever too.
Right now I must postpone investments in my machines, but it would suit my ES3 perfectly - even though I don't have a profiler, only the pressure meter from Gabor.

This is a stupid question but I'm trying to understand what makes this functionally different from a flair 58? I'm sure I'm missing something pretty obvious.

The CT has a boiler. You don't need a kettle to make this work.

In particular, it's an open boiler design. This has made thermal management much easier to the point that I don't really need to even worry about it. Not much alternatives out there. It is much quicker to pull multiple shots back to back and clean up is a breeze.
