STL-V2 [Marsfire version] - $23.89... Hurry :)

And for all the little women out there...

1. Nobody cares if gold makes you Cry

2. Nobody cares if you think this is a scam. Sellers with 99,200/100,000 positive reviews don't post $20 flashlights and close up shop and/or not send you anything. Dispute it if it arrives broken or you receive a flashlight that's worth $23, and you will more than likely end up with an even more favorable result.

For the men...

1. Go...Go...Go... http://www.ebay.com/itm/290686650930

2. Same model # and specs here: http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/marsfire-w068-cree-t6-1800lumen...

3. Yes, it says "3 LED" in the picture, but the #s are identical in manafont link (and elsewhere), and the picture is also incorrect @ buyincoins.com

It ain't a SLT-V2, the reflector is different and no 3/5 mode, but I'll buy one. Can always use it as a host or gift. Besides PIMP mode no extra charge.

Thanks, TJ!!  Target acquired!  As for pimp mode, it's nothing a generous application of paracord can't take care of.  Looking forward to testing this puppy out.  Funny, I went from zero reflectored throwers to two of them in just one week (purchased an HD2010 on Sunday).  Lucky me!

I have one. Got it for $29.

Driven at 0.85Amps on high, 0.44 on Medium and 0.23 on low on Trusfire flames fully charged. Not well spaced and has no memory but does start on high after 1 minute.

The pill is aluminum and not that big. No way as go as the Sky Ray.

Reflector is nice and clean.

For the price a driver upgrade and pill enhancements are not an issue. Wink

I ordered on 29 march ( the price was $28.99 that time), and some days later I got the first mail what you see above the first part.

I believe Pounder bought one at the same price you did and he got his. Maybe they really did run out of stock?

I got mine from DD though and it was supposed to be a skyray..it ended up being a uniquefire..after the 10$ gift card for being the wrong item and my dd points used it ended up costing me 21$ essentially..the price for the light was 35$ though..

Up to $60... must have added some fender port holes, rims and a crown air freshener. Plain gold plate aint PIMP enough.

Might have to get me a Grille.

I just received this email and this is my reply:

Mr. BUY IN COINS,
I belong to a flashlight forum and this same excuse was given on this identical item in the past. You have continued to offer this item and recently more than doubled the price. Negative feedback will be given if item is not delivered and my other friends at BudgetLightForum (BLF) will give negative feedback which will further lower your sales rating. See this link... http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/reply/9572/161880
Sincerely,
Willie Schmidt and BLF members

Dear willieschmidt,

 

Thanks for your order# xxxxxxx from  our eBay store.

 

We feel so sorry to bother you here. You may find your order on eBay still waiting for dispatch. We get a notice from our storehouse that we temporarily run out of stock of this item at the moment. We have been making every attempt to maintain stock of every item we offer on eBay, but on rare occasion that we meet the inventory management problem. We did not remove the item link on eBay, because to remove the item link would empty our sales records and lower our sales rank. We greatly appreciate your understanding on this matter.

 

We are contacting our provider to see when the item will be available again. The reply from them would take some time. We would arrange dispatch of your order within next 2-3 days if the new cargo arrives, otherwise we will contact with you again if the product is not available in a short time.

 

Your attention to this notification would be highly appreciated.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if any question.

 

Thanks and Best regards,

$6.48 usd cheaper from manafont and it would be in stock.

Why is it $60 now?  Kind of a "little woman" thing to do.

No referral links and nothing embedded . . . ever.

Viffer called it! I received tje same BS email as you, Willie. Here is what I replied to it...

Greetings,

I am sure if I purchased this flashlight after you raised the price to $60 it would already be in the mail and on its way to me. Your ebay page for this item states that you take full responsibility for the listing. You are still selling it at the higher price and have at least 10 available.

I have purchased plenty from BuyInCoins in the past and have never had anything but good things to say about your company. That will change unless I receive the exact item I purchased and see it shipped immediately. This "out of stock" stunt has been played by you in the past when you sell something for less than the regular price. If my product is not shipped I will leave you negative ratings as well as file a fraud claim against you with eBay and PayPal. I am not the only one who will do so. I am a respected member of a very popular flashlight forum and your reputation will suffer greatly if you try a bait and switch with me or any other members who fairly purchased this light at it's posted price (prior to you raising it later). I expect to see a shipping notice within 24-48 hours that my correct product is on its way.

Feel free to contact me directly or via our forum at http://budgetlightforum.com/node/9572

Sincerely,

do you think they will ship eventually or just refund because "out of stock"? Should I leave a negative feedback already and file a claim?

I think someone should order the light with the new price and get it delivered soon. Then we could call this a fraud, with great confidence.

@CheapThrills: I'll wait about one month or until they cancel the order.

I placed three orders to different addresses & two of them are marked shipped w/tracking numbers as of this evening. I cancelled the third. Anyone else with similar luck?

My order is still in limbo. Wrote them and said, I would ride it out and not send a refund.

My alter ego ”PIMPin Willie” will just have to wait. Smile
