A domain I want is in the pendingDelete stage according to WHOIS.

I have been monitoring it since redemptionPeriod, and it entered into pendingDelete 5 days ago today.

After checking a few services (SnapNames, etc), they report it is scheduled to drop on the 11th (7 days, by my calculations). I'm not quite sure what to believe.

The domain isn't highly valuable. It is to me and one other company. I can see no backorders placed on the big name sites, so I'm thinking of trying to get it without a backorder service.

Any insight as to when it will actually drop? I've read 11AM-2PM PST, but I'm unsure. Thanks.
