    OK. Now I'm freaking out again, lol!!! I should start a Beware UPS thread somewhere.

    International Express with USPS is fast (3 to 5 days generally) and it's much cheaper.. From me to him via USPS International Express would have been like $35..

    I wanted him to have it faster than that so I went with UPS and spent the extra mooooola...

    Enter a whole bunch of facepalm(s) cuz I got played like a piano..

    Okie dokie, peace owt peeps...
    Crazy! Note to self....Never use ups to ship to Canada or snywhere outside US. On a side note, I like fedex better than ups, typically cheaper as well.
    I understand your explanation, I was just posting a random thought


    On another side note: has anyone here ever changed their satin finish to more of a lightly brushed finish? Reason why I ask is because I am not so sure that I like yhe satin finish on the Titanium tube Raq gave me. I was thinking of trying to get it to a brushed finish., idk

    Now that I've handled the ELA for a while, I can see why Dave made it his flagship design.

    Unlike every other mod out there, I can't think of any way there can be a "Version Two" of this device. This is one well thought out mod.

    I can't tell. I was thinking all the TIs were polished. Except, the ribbed 650. I don't know.

    Yeah, its not the best picture, but it is definitely not polished. When my 18500 gets here, I will post a pic for comparison.

    There were blemished Ti tubes for sale awhile back, you could get polished or satin. That is one of the satin ones.
