Mostly valid points, except for the CC balance part :=) , I admit defeat and move on.... Will edit my post to make the expressed opinion "less inelegant"


Edited my post also due to your edit

on the CC issue and carrying a balance. the first and foremost rule of the CC don't use it unless you can pay it off at the end of each cycle.


I do not think many know this rule with the CC debt in this country. Must be in the fine print

Imagine how good this company could be with good business practice, they survived this long like doing business like they do, too bad really. People obviously like the product but the business side needs some tweaking.

When I ordered my Ajna I also ordered the XL ICU. F-stop website said XL ICU ships in 8 weeks whereas RB Ajna was in stock. They both shipped out of HK the next day via Airmail.

There inventory tracking is less than stellar but it is nice that a few of us managed to snag some bags/ICU in a timely manner over the past 2 months.

Still if they list something as 4-6weeks or longer I'd call first. I wouldn't give them my CC unless it is really in stock and will ship within a few days.

But we all know now how they run the business at this point in time. Knowing this each of us must decide for ourselves if we want to proceed under their current business practices.

unfortunately as you said the inventory accuracy is less then stellar. this what is said to be in stock might be also less than accurate.

yep its still a craps shoot.

Placed an order for a Red Bull Ajna on December 30th, received it today (Jan 11). I know all the horror stories, but I have to say I've never had a problem. This is my 4th bag over the years, along with various ICUs, and I suppose I'm one of the lucky ones to have never experienced any prolonged delay. I am truly curious as to how their performance can seemingly vary so wildly.

They even threw in one of their Redfern pouches which was a nice touch!

I recently ordered a Lotus and another Medium Slope ICU. I received email notifications they're arriving next week. YES!



Received my Lotus and ICU last week Fortunately, I've never experienced the horror stories I've read about. I've purchased a Tilopa and other items from the company over the years.

I order a Shibata from F-Stop on January 1 and it made it to Hawaii on January 9. They didn't bother with a shipment notice or tracking but they mailed it in a timely manner. Similar service to another bag I bought a couple years back.
