Just got a package from 3fvape, took 13 days to my door.

Mean time, seems my fasttech order I made on March 4th is missing in action, March the 12th it got denied at Chinese customs, fasttech said they have resent with same tracking number and still had the same log as of March 12th, didn't think you could reuse the same tracking number, so I wary they even told me the truth, only a small order, so not a major hit if I don't get it and Fasttech CS won't refund.

Also got a package coming from sourcemore too, ordered same time as 3fvape, but that one is still showing on the plane since March 27th, damn slow plane :giggle:

Da'am, 13 days to door is great.

How did you know about the FT orders refused at Chinese customs? Did that show up with you checking tracking, or did FT tell you when you inquired?

I have two orders from FT shipped mid-March that are "still on a plane" apparently... after 2.5 weeks. If I don't see them on radar this next week, I'll becontacting FT myself.

I use 'packageradar.com' for tracking my orders from China, gives the most info and showed on their as denied at china customs, that's when contacted FT, and they said they knew and was sending it back with the same tracking number, I will contact them again Monday and see what they say this time.

Thanks for that. I've been using EMS which happens to show the same info as packageradar... packages left China airport 3/16 and 3/17 and have no updates since. One in transit 19 days, the other 20.

I know sending via ePacket can take up to 30 days to get to the destination, but that seems like a long time to have no further updates on where the heck they are.

Good luck with your package and let us know what FT says.

I wondered about doing the same, but then ended up ordering that extra Ragnar and a couple decks whose ETA got delayed, so I guess I'll see sooner than not! But yeah, in a couple months things might be 'worked out' on FT's end.

I used to use a track17 for mine.. but I just don't know.
I have more than enough setups and tanks/drippers.. I just don't feel the urge to rush out..
or the hassle of getting funds back on a customs snatched package.. mb in a few months tho, my vote of confidence might come back..

Seems to me only a few of us hanging out and posting.. like we are limping.. I just hope those on a quest to get setups can find something and learn from sites like this.. :)

Keep up the documenting, 11 ;) The more we all know, maybe the better..

What ticked me off was reading from an "old timer" a few weeks ago, she said we all brought this on ourselves.. Good thing I was not and am not active in her tiny world.. but eventually *the regulators/gov* will own what they want.. we all can not fight it.. but we can leave bits of info to help newbies.. so instead of aggravating us all with stupid thoughts.. leave info to help.

Yeah, it is bad, but the blame game only goes so far.

that person was implying the whole medical device vs tobacco product we as an industry could have argued for for a new classification rather than kick the can down the road and i do understand the statement but i also know that no matter what we did back then nothing would change what "big brother "wants to do. hell doing so could have allowed it to happen faster who knows. we're all in the same boat in terms of my two FT orders one is almost here the other had to update since it arrived at a ems departure point both ordered early march but we must not forget how series china is over there holiday breaks.

Exactly, @lordmage on all points here..

Not Fasttech but I have a mech mod and stack section both scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I also have more than enough stuff but I like to collect things. If customs ever decides to confiscate any of my packages, oh well I guess. I won't get bent out of shape.

Could not agree more. No matter what anyone did we would have found ourselves here b/c vaping is not a US-based industry, but from China. Tobacco was huge from the early 1900s on, esp once movies and television glorified smoking. So they had the money, resources & incentive to protect their industry (even once it was revealed smoking was harmful) through PACs and other means.

This isn't the case with vaping. and orgs like CASA are no substitute for a mega-industry. This left big tobacco and ignorant people with a podium to control the narrative.

Only way vaping would have had a chance in the US is if it had been a US inventor that came up with it, spawning a giant US-based industry to counter big tobacco. Instead what we have are de-centralized people who know vaping has improved their health and their lives.

What vaping needs if it's to be saved in the long run, is an all-out education campaign. TV commercials with doctors talking about the benefits over smoking, an expert to speak to the money saved in health insurance, lives saved, what the real research shows, etc. In conjunction with an independent film documentary delving into it on a granular level, which would reveal how much good it's done, how much it could do going forward, health-wise and economically, and how it's been maligned - and why. That kind of thing. But again, no one to spearhead such an effort, and no funds to do it. Because the industry is not based here, so there is no mega-entity with incentive.

GoFundMe anyone? :giggle:

Ha! That's true. But I had two orders arrive a week ago that were shipped days after the two that have dropped off the map. I opened a ticket this morning with FT to see what they say... maybe they can find them somewhere. All the trackers I checked had the same info. "Processed through the [China] airport" though the language makes it unclear if they actually ever left or not.

Patience is a virtue.

Got a order today from soucemore that I made on March 24th, came in a DHL bag, but was delivered by USPS.

My missing FT order is still missing them, I contacted them last week about it, and they said they was looking into it, and not heard anything since, luckily it was a cheap order, as think I may never see that one.

I also received orders today. Both from FT -

1. Drag 3 (shipped 3/13 via ePacket, free shipping, took a month)

2. Ragnar & Bulk tanks w/ misc items (shipped 3/29 with paid upgrade to USPS Express) ... that extra $4 got it here in just 2 weeks.

The Thelema cleared local US Customs and is supposed to be delivered Thurs, also shipped back on 3/13 and also the free ePacket, slow-boat way.

That still leaves 3 orders en route... all with expedited shipping, but one of them shipped 4/1 and the other two, on 4/7.

Sorry your one order fell off the map... hope FT can find it for you. Small or not, you must have wanted the stuff or wouldn't have ordered it!

I was playing it smart, I thought, hadn't ordered anything from FT in a Long time. I wasn't going to risk it this late in the game. But the hunt and seek is strong with this one...I went on FT for nostalgias sake, a farewell look. And I spotted an SXK Kayfun 5 Squared SE (this is the enhanced DL airflow) ...very cool Kayfun I never managed to pick up before. I went insane. I bought a gift certificate. I cruised the site. I picked up several other attys, including a Cthulhu Artemis mtl rta, and a very cool Vapor Giant 26650 styled mech mod, and many seriously cool drip tips that I'll never find in the States anymore. I placed that order on April 10th. I chose faster shipping and shipping logos removed. I won't be surprised if some of it doesn't get through, or even all of it. I placed several separate orders in hopes that some would slip through. It was temporary insanity, but what the hell. I'll let you know if someday I get a package...lol.

@Cosmic - we've all been there! I even looked last night to see if FT had the Hadron thinking mayyybe if I pay for super-fast shipping... thankfully it was out of stock! :giggle: Not just there but everywhere...

Good luck with your orders and may they all arrive!

Yes! But when I saw it I was buying a Ragnar and had no idea the Hadron was a Steam Crave AND Yihi mod or I would have gotten it immediately! Now they are all out of stock everywhere. I could kick myself!

So emailed Maggie at SC yesterday to ask when they'll be back in stock. Her reply:

(paste)
Hadron 220 is discontinued.
But We will have Hadron Pro and Hadron Plus are coming soon.
Hadron Pro is DNA250C 4s lipo mod, we will release in June
Hadron Plus is DNA250C 2*21700 battery mod, we will release in July.
(/paste)

I just got two DNA250c mods and wanted another Yihi. :cuss2: And wonder if the Plus will have a squonker backpack.

Looks like I will have to look for a used one someone is selling...really don't need or want a 3rd 250c. Damn I wish I could have a do-over! Just had no idea what the Hadron was when I saw it, and had already ordered all the mods I needed. But had I known would have made an exception and snatched it right up! :headbang:

Throwing caution to the wind, went to FT last night to see if the Bulk was back in stock. Black was, so ordered another one, paying for the fastest shipping which was TnT-something-air-carrier for $6. I specifically did not choose USPS Expedited, wanting to avoid USPS in the carrier name. This morning it had shipped by.. Expedited USPS. :wait: (If I would have picked that, it would have been $4 vs $6, but at least it shipped.)

Have to say I really like the Bulk which VapnFagan helped design. Got a Ragnar in the same order [few days back] and they're both awesome. Ordered another Ragnar before I even got the first one, but the Bulk has its advantages and is $23 vs $48-$58 (depending on if you get the AK).

Pros for Bulk:
Base graduates down to 28mm so fits on any mod
No juice flow band - full juice flow by design with great wicking @ 100% VG
Super easy build deck with honeycomb AF
Super easy wicking - no need to thin wicks (true of Ragnar too)
Super simple design that chucks clouds and has great flavor

Since it fits on any mod it's more versatile than the Ragnar. The Ragnar is a great beast too, but only fits on my SXmini G Class... and overhangs it slightly. Also has the traditional juice flow control which has to be closed when filling and it's a lot harder to turn than the AF control on the Bulk (for filling, which is very easy). But love them both, so wanted another Bulk.

Will still get a Hadron. Then I'm done!
