THIS IS THE DEDICATED PREDICTIONS THREAD FOR FLINKENICK’S 2017 IEM FLAGSHIP SHOOTOUT.
 
 

 
 
 
The assignment is simple: correctly predict the top 5 finishers.
 
The rules equally so:
 
  • Everybody can only post once. However, you may modify your prediction up until 20 MARCH.
  • I hope this goes without saying, but do not make a second account to double post. Moderators will ban double accounts according to the IP address.
  • There is no haste in posting, it is not first come first serve. Chronological order does not apply.
  • Please number your predictions below each other like: 1) IEM1 2) IEM2 etc.
  • Guaranteed giveaway. If nobody corrects the first 5, winner will be based on 4, or 3 if necessary.
  • In case of a tie, winner will be awarded by death match. Standard death match rules apply: two or more contestants are thrown in a pit with one knife, last man standing gets the Sirius. If for some reason one of the contestants does not feel completely comfortable with this approach, we could organize a lottery to point one out or come up with a question or something.
 
 

First prize 

     

      - Fidue A91 Sirius: 4+1 hybrid universal iem (MRSP = $899).

 

Second prize

 

      - SilverFi IEM-X: a 4-braid cotton shielded silver cable (MRSP = $496).

 

Third prize

 

      - Toxic Cables Silver Widow 24 AWG (MRSP = $320)

 
The contenders (in alphabetical order):
 
  1. 1964 Audio A18 Tzar
