Wolf has been responsive to me and many others I know so I was very surprised 
when I read that he did not respond to Davide's email.  Like Pascal I think it 
is highly likely that Davide's email was not received by Wolf.

Wolf's IT8 targets are as good as any IT8 targets out there and he is the 
actual producer of many IT8 targets from other vendors because of his low cost 
and high quality.  In addition for a nominal fee he will hand measure your 
target before shipping it to you.
