    Been in contact w/Danko (a fellow Vaper) of Danko Blood Leathers in Ohio who has made 2 previous AWESOME custom Mod Holsters for me. With his creative thought and equally artistic Leathersmith capabilities, we got something nifty in the works for a fitting Holster for the Squid DB v2.1 :thumb:
    Keep ya'll posted as Project progresses

    Ah, the errant toppers have arrived. Somehow, when I changed my address-- I moved house a few months ago-- my new address got paired with my old town. I dunno why. But get here they did. You good folks may recall I ordered the new one from Geek, the Blitzen, and a tried-and-true Aromamizer in case I didn't like the Blitzen, so I'd have something to put on the Squid just-in-case. So I open the package and find my Blitzen, plus my Aromamizer. Plus another Aromamizer and an Aromamizer V RDA. I emailed Robert, the head honcho over at Subtank Supply-- I strongly recommend the joint, folks. Seriously-- about the apparent screwup. In two hours flat I had an email back. Seems Aromamizer sent some extra stuff as free-gimmies on their last order, and they're passing them out to folk who buy Aromamizer gear. You gotta love that, and it's one of the reasons why I recommend them.

    I got sold on the place a while back. I ordered a Vapor Flask Stout from them. They had an attractive price on sale and I was in the customer base from when Roxy was working with Augvape; that's where I bought all my Boreas. I get an email from Robert a couple days after I place my order, informing me Vape Forward didn't sent any of the Stouts they had ordered; apparently some production shortfall. He immediately refunded my money-- before he sent the mail, I think-- and told me to watch the mail for a free gift for my trouble. In addition, he was giving me a raincheck on the Stout price and would notify me if/when they got any. The free gift was a regular Vapor Flask-- nice mod, if you don't know, retailing in the $100+ range, and fits very neatly in the hip pocket of your jeans. I couldn't believe it! Then in a few weeks he notified me he'd gotten some Stouts and my name was on one if I wanted to re-order, which I did.

    You can't beat customer service like that, troops.

    Now all I have to do is find some time to build the Blitzen. We're back on 60hrs/week, so God knows when.

    I love hearing stories like this - thanks @suprtrkr . It makes me remember the best parts about being a vaper, and I always think of this now-infamous movie scene.



    I'm sure glad we all (now) came when we did, because yes, it most certainly is... (one way or another). :\

    I don't think "he" (your "Irish") would appreciate being called a joke, but I'll let you two work that part out. :lol:

    Did you see that blue one? Oh my - "a tree" grows in Stamford (only a slight exaggeration). :wub::blink::blush::lol:

    The Blue "marble-ish" one? Yep. Very nice. That's "Viagra Blue" ain't it? :lol:

    You see that one finished in distressed Red & White stripes with matching Blue RDA?

    Thank you for the directionals, Sarge! It's such a corn maze over there, but I'll put on my TAC glasses and join the DPL in the hunt for Squidly goodies.

    I was wrong on Post before I edited it to remove my Oopsie....
    What I thought at first was a TAC21 on one of Eric's posts wasn't.
    I peruse daily for new Pics or ETAs on the TAC21 and as of this morning have seen neither.
    But there are usually a couple new Pics of cool customizations done to DBs.

    Oh by the way,,, I found me a Stencil-Cutter on Tha Etsy to assist in the semi-custom plans for the new inbound Green Squid/Soldier Mutant-Mod ;)

    Damn ya just gotta love this Interwebz thingie.
    Is there nothing ya can't find or get on there? :w00t:

    Well, sadly it is time for my final post on this thread, and I'll be unsubscribing as well.

    Six days ago, I sent Squidvape two emails detailing, with photos, the problem I was having securing the battery door with batteries in the device. No response. No phone number on their website. No address on their website. It seems pretty obvious to me that these people do not want to be contacted by their customers, other than to take money, of course.

    Had I seen their return policy on their website before I ordered, I would have known this.

    squidvape

    It is a complete middle finger to their customers.

    In case you haven't seen it, some highlights:

    Translation: You had better be damn sure you want this, because you aren't getting your money back under any circumstances.


    [​IMG]
    Yup, they are so proud of their product that they offer a whopping 14 DAY WARRANTY. Disgraceful. Oh yeah, and note all of the "This does not include..."'s. I bet if I bought a tank from any other vendor and it was bad out of the box, I could at least exchange it.

    It is such a shame too, because I was so excited to order this product after all the rave reviews. Those of you that bought one and are happy with it, I'm glad! I just hope you never, ever need support, because based on my experience, you aren't getting it.

    This is easily the worst customer support experience I have ever had, vaping or otherwise.

    Well after the post above, I think I will not order another one from the owners site again. I hope Mr. stealthy does get his problem resolved. I still want a few more of these. That being said, I did not know about the warranty, and lack of customer service. At least if I use another vendor, I might get customer service from them. :unsure:

    Stealthy is kindly allowing me to take a crack at his mod. For whatever reason, Squid appears to have gone the Facebook route (as have some other vendors too). I feel absolutely terrible for Stealthy (and he knows it).

    From all I've seen, they're very active is supporting the group there. I'm neither condemning nor condoning the approach, simply bringing it to the forefront. People should know this because there are many who have chosen to not use Facebook, and that may play into their purchasing decision, as so it should.

    I hope I can get it working, so we can at least recoup some of his investment. Time will tell...

    Either way - Stealthy's been a friend to Kat and me for many years now, and this bums me out. :-(

    I'm sick about it too. I bought mine on impulse, from you guys opinions on it. I have it, mine works just fine, and I am pleased with the purchase. But how can I recommend it knowing Stealth's troubles? I hope it can be worked out, that he gets a mod worth having, and comes to love it as much as I like mine. Good luck with your efforts.

    I have not much to add about the CS at Squid Vapes. I am incredibly disappointed for our bud, the Stealthy One, and he knows. Loud & Klear :(

    I do however, have HIGH HOPES (thank you, Mr. Sinatra) that DPL might crack the code on this one and get it functioning.

    Yes, most of Squid is on the Book of Faces, as have SO many other vendors. It's a sign of our times, and like it or hate it, it is what it is. I don't suggest it, or un-suggest it, but just so that it's open knowledge, that's where the action's at.

    Yeah, bumming. Totally, dude.

    Having said all this, I will not hesitate to recommend Roadside Vapes as a super-vendor. We've done kwite a bit of biz with them, and have not hesitated to give them a huge thumbs up, and many, many thanks.

    I too am not a big Fan of nor Participant on the Feces Book. I will NEVER EVER allow myself to become (voluntarily or involuntarily) its psychophantic dronish drooling addicted Zombie-Monkey.
    However, like ALL "Tools", it does indeed have its Purpose and usefulness. As such is true, I voluntarily yet begrudgingly utilize it as with all my "Tools" when that Tool becomes necessary and required to aid in the accomplishment of my intended or prescribed Mission and/or Purpose.
    Your mileage may vary either way and that's cool. Your Choice.

    Same as Choices we make in ALL things are Ours and Ours alone,,,
    So are the consequences and ramifications of those Choices.

    Also, it is inarguably true and Common Sense & Logic dictates that Individuals, Groups, & Organizations must be weighed, measured, and ultimately judged by and for their overall "Forrest" and not for the one/few "Trees" (whether Good or Bad).
    For if that is not True & Just,,, We would ALL Suck and be found; Lacking. Period.

    I am optimistic and firmly believe that this "situation" for our esteemed Vape-Fellow will be resolved and an apt, fitting, & acceptable Solution effected as is deserved and should be.
    Karma will prevail as it always does and things will work out the way they are supposed to both because and in spite of Us.

    Awesome Day to All!

    I think I'd be fine ordering from Squid, IF I had a FB account. As Kat said, if I wanted another, I'd go to Fred at Roadside though, but that's a personal preference, and based on my experiences working with him.

    If I didn't have a Facebook account, I might shy away from dealing directly (I don't know). I'm comfortable because I do have one, and I've seen how quickly & effectively they respond to people there.
