I got this today, Nov 5th. My local vendor got it last Wednesday. CTI has been taking a lot of flak lately and I want to defend them, but come on guys, you can't get a date stamp right?? It just gets people questioning other things. Or am I just nitpicking?

That label looks like its rolled around for a little bit. Maybe it should have been 2018. Or maybe they started using that batch of tubes a little early, and the tubes were pre-stamped? Maybe?

I got two other reloads (April 2019 and Jan 2019) and wear was consistent across all 3. I'm sure it was just a stamp error, but it's disconcerting.

I wouldn't be worried about it either way. Load it and fly it. If you have an issue with it. They will cover it under warranty.

Oh no, flying it is not a concern. It'll fly, and it will fly well. I know it's just a date stamp, but how hard is it to get right?

Cameron,
I agree completely. NFPA requires marking motors and reloads with the date of manufacture. Even though it’s a small error, if it’s part of a pattern of issues, the company and the certification organization needs to know about it. Please fill out a MESS report.

I am curious to know, too, but it is really not our business unless the family wants to make it public. I hope he is well physically and emotionally.

Hard to believe the fire was 3 years, 3 months ago.

You guys are all wrong, that date is "good if used by". Since they are no longer any good I will be happy to dispose of them for you. PM me for my address :)

You've got it all wrong.. those are "Canadian dates" which are different then the US. They look the same, but they're made of metric maple syrup.

I thought they were metric dates and are like 0.6 of a US date. Nov 4th 2019 metric is like Jan 4th 2019 or something in US dates, right?

Depends on the current exchange rate.
