I don’t understand why you want to close the thread. People who are interested in shipping information certainly aren’t the only people checking in on the thread. I get you don’t like to answer the same questions with the same answer but it seems weird to me to cut off all conversation here because of it. It just seems at odds with what the blf is to me, a place to freely converse and explore this incredible hobby. As long as there is no angry or disrespectful discord I think it’s fine. Just my two cents! Guys understand that TA has nothing further to add at this time. When he does we will be the first to know. Now, that being said, I would like some beamshots and anecdotes and this amazing beast of a light! Cheers!

I agree, I would rather leave it open as well, but if it starts devolving into pages and pages of arguments like it has many times in the past, there is really no other option.

Right now it is fine, I just wanted people to give people a heads up of what could happen.

I was nbr. 3 on the first 500 list and live in Europe. Netherlands, to be precise.
I have not heard from Neal and wonder if my light has been shipped now?

Over 90% of lights have been shipped now, that is all I know at the moment.

OK, no worries then.

Tension and anticipation are rising Wink

Would be a tremendous surprise – coming home in the afternoon and finding this package has been delivered! Smile

The quote below from TA is the latest information.

As TA has also said a few posts above this…… He does not expect to get any more information until the end of the month, after Chinese NY.

IF/When he does get more info it will be shared. There is nothing more that can be said.

Finally got mine in Australia. Selected DHL but it was delivered by TNT. No complaints really, speed was comparable, just didn’t get notification it was on its way.

Having said that, ANY issues I had with shipping and delays were quickly forgotten once I opened the GT. They really have done a fantastic job.

Great work and thanks to the GT team and lumintop!

Wow, surely that wasn’t shipped out the day before, was it? Maybe Neal shipped some out on the 8th or even the 7th. Anyway, good news.

Sounds about right for ‘most’ DHL or express courier deliveries. Mine came from HongKong to my door in Alabama, USA in less than 48 hours.

Glad you got it. Thumbs Up

Depending on the destination and origin it could be there next day, depends entirely on how many stops between the manufacturer and the destination. Entirely possible it was done within that timeframe though.

TrackChecker Mobile best app on the world for tracking your packages, even untraceable mail with 13 numbers can be tracked if you manually set the wright carrier

 

Thanx for that information! i always used 17track.net before i saw you mentioned TrackChecker, and this app is just amazing, i'll save a lot of time with it and it's really cool to have a nice organisation of all your tracking numbers. smile

 

For the main subject here, the BLF Gt is really impressive, i watched some videos of AdventureSportFlashlights, and seeing this BLF GT light some stuff so far away was unbelievable. really nice work on this flashlight, like usual with all the BLF projects. Thumbs Up

 

Good luck to everyone who is waiting for this beast.

I just received my BLF GT carry bag and lens cap from the deal that Neal has going now.

Both work very well and the quality is good.

The bag has very little room for extra stuff and the light is a nice fit.

The lens cap stretches over the lens very snuggly.

I think the deal is great for US$25.

No that shipping to AUS was earlier, those 185 haven’t moved yet, they all have shipping notification but will start moving tomorrow on Monday..
CNY will affect probably all of them even DHL, so patient is crutial at this point, and most important is that things are rolling, we are no more stuck and waiting for shipping solution!!
Packages are sent out to 90+ % of first 850 orders and that is great achievement !

Big thanks to the team and all our Chinese friends who worked so hard for making all this possible.
Wish you all happy Chinese New year Big Smile

I have no notification. Does that mean that I belong among the last 10% of the waiting? Crying

Packages are sent out from LT to pick up point for further carriers distributon. That maen that they still have reservations status..
Once they get tracking status it’s up to TA and Neal how they are going to publish those numbers..
Saying 90+% means that almost all who payd and still waiting is included.
I believe that those +-10% goes for those with late payment, and for refunds..

After 10+ emails to Neal I finaly got an answer, probably from his wife…

Quote:

Hey

Just checked

your GT still not shipped

will ship after the Chinese New Year with DHL

What can I say, I’m very sad. Crying

Around 200 orders were still open, 180 lights were shipped this week, this means 99% of GT were shipped. Maybe I’m the last… Crying
Maybe I will never get it. Who knows…

Even if I get it, GT will arrive in 4th month (March) after my payment.
