I know it's confusing as heck, but it should ship by the end of this month, maybe sooner - think the 10-10 date is just to cover a worse case, or CYA thing, or didn't get updated.

At 1416 orders place now, but could be a mix now of BG non BLF pre-orders, but I'd think those #'s are small.

Ordered on September, 07.

Have to wait for the next run. No Problem, at the end, we’ll get a great FL. Price is like a gift.

Thanks to all, working on it !

Regards

Chris

Good News:
My tracking says my lights should come today.

Bad News:
I had to leave town quickly because of my fathers illness.

Loneman, you really need to watch the language, cursing is not allowed here as this is a family oriented site.

> trust a tripod mount?

With some fiddling, like adding a compression strap to hold the light firmly down on the tripod-mount base.
I agree the threaded hole and threaded bolt would be the weak spot there.
And I’d test it with the nut light first — less drama if it broke and went flying.

> shipping

Knowing who’s doing the shipping matters to me.
Shipping performance is part of how I evaluate a company, their track record includes whether they screw up shipping things.

Cursing?  That Planet of the Apes quote is considered cursing?  Wow...

 

<edit> especially considering it comes from a film with a U/A certificate. </edit>

  • The package tracking is very chatty.  You get sent individual messages every time the status changes (package arrived here, departed there, etc.).



I can’t emphasize this enough.  One package resulted in twelve (12) email messages, and that was just within my state.


On the other hand, the “delivered” email arrived within minutes of the actual delivery.  That’s always a pleasant surprise.

Do not sign up for change of status notifications – only the delivery notification. I have delivery notifications via SMS Text and I literally get the text within seconds of the mail person scanning it. I get the text, look out my window and the delivery person is right there.

I wasn't sure how to take it, to be honest, but the three rudeness reports led me to think people were actually offended. :shrug:

Just a reminder that the first week of October is a big holiday week in China (National Golden Day Week). They may be trying to get orders out the door before everybody goes on holiday.

I thought your post was funny.
And I don’t mind a few curse words but still it is so easy to replace them, get the message across in a way it won’t offend
F××k -> flip
F××king -> flipping
D**m -> dang
Da**it -> dang it
H€££ -> heck
When I type such things itbto empathize things not to use rude words.

Your post didn’t offend me at all. I personally enjoyed it.

Same here and I’ve never heard of someone under the age of 18 on this forum (not that it’s an excuse to break the forum rules)

And the kids under 18 know more curse words than we do. The only time I’ve ever marked anyone rude is when he/she is personally attacking another member. That to me is unacceptable.

That’s true, me personally I swore a LOT more when I was a teenager than I do now

AliExpress listed in English here for $45 shipped. Dang, might have to order one of these to replace my expedited shipping one from BG smile

It's $43 after store discount, not bad...

I thought this was Banggood’s deal with TF. Where are they getting their stock?

1421 pre orders on Banggood, none on AE, interesting to see what happens after the groupbuy here with their coupons
