OK, on the custom logo do you just put the logo in the comments section when paying with paypal? Is the custom logo lettering or symbols? If letters, how many spaces can be used? Where is the custom logo placed on the flashlight?

Good luck with that! I posted the same request and was totally ignored by RIC. I ended up getting a light with NO logo whatsoever. That’s not a deal breaker, but that’s not what I ordered and paid for.

Also, I tried to email Ric directly in advance of the light being shipped out and all of my emails were returned as “undeliverable.” Ric never responded to me. I admit it sticks in my craw a little bit….

The Apex driver? If you PM Ric from CNQ he should set you up with one.. I purchased
the driver as an upgrade.

Same deal with mine, it arrived in Canada on the 15th and is now in customs. Only thing is that it’s in customs in Vancouver and I’m in Halifax and Canada is really really wide.

Canadian customs is also not renowned for their speed, we’ll see if it gets here this week _.

I got letters put on another light. There is an add on for etching. $2 I believe, I emailed them and told them what I wanted and where and it was done right. Ric said that if it is a lot of letters it is just smaller print. I think for logos you have to send them the file of the picture you want added.

Thanks. I own both SRK and the Apex, my Apex appears to be the winner here. Gonna replace it with the Apex driver.
Oh worth to mention, this upgrade gives you a Hi-med-lo modes on a SRK! Big Smile

Hi again everyone,

Well, I am disappointed.

I waited almost a month for my Black SRK to arrive from CN (Ric) and finally got it today.
http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=1708 – this is what I ordered and paid for.

RIC assured me it was an excellent batch directly from the original Sky Ray factory.
All that arrived was a flashlight, no logo, no lanyard, no receipt, no box.

Extremely disappointed to say the least. As it has no logo, it’s obviously a replica, not what I paid for.

Should I be seeking a refund? Is this what others have recieved from RIC from CN?

Yep, that’s what I got! Obviously you haven’t noticed my posts, above. I was among the first to order. Believe me, I know how you feel.

BUT, at least my light performs well. Otherwise, I’m never buying another thing from “RIC.” I don’t like being ignored and getting something different than what I paid for.

Sorry mate, I did miss your posts.
Don’t you feel ripped off? Paying for genuine and getting a replica?

I’m furious about it, why is he allowed on this forum if he says he sells genuine products and sells cheaper knock offs?

I have PM’d him, but something tells me I won’t hear back now that he has my money…

Ric has made a lot of promises without delivering on them. I’m kinda new to this site, so I don’t know why he has such credibility here.

He’s never addressed my concerns. No PMs, no posts, nothing. It’s not worth trying to send it back or get a refund.

If he responds to you and works it out consider yourself lucky. For me, I’m never buying anything else from the guy.

Good luck!

Just picked up mine from the post office. Took a few pics and tested it out, working great! They got grease everywhere but that’s no big deal, customs had opened it so that may have been them.

Can anybody tell what version of the driver I have here?
