    Am I the only one who is beginning to think that reading this thread is akin to having a toothache? Colonoscopy?

    Yeah, but at least you can get relief for those. :)

    There's a comment on one of their Facebook posts. Apparently someone reported their Hopper stolen to the Boulder Police department. :lol:

    This is getting beyond ridiculous. I'm still waiting for a hopper with a life span longer than two weeks, from last years 4/20.

    I finally opened a Paypal dispute and within less than 12 hours I got a message from someone other than Olivia telling me they aren't sure why orders newer than mine have already shipped and that they would ship mine within 7 days. I guess we'll find out :shrug:

    I think 7 days translates to about 6 months...or more in GH life. :D

    I hope they respond to my change of address update LOL. I thought I’d have it back before I got my house. Or my San Diego trip. Neither happened LOL.

    Fwiw I emailed them Friday and somehow got a reply less than 24 hrs later from support, it didn't have a name signed like Olivia, but claimed the electric blue batch of hoppers have "been produced" and are just awaiting final assembly. They said it should not be too much longer before they ship, though, and said they will expedite my order, seems a bit weird that they are expediting people's orders, and I didn't really even request that, I just asked for an update mainly because it's mid April and my order still says March shipping, even if they got it wrong I figured they should put in some sort of update by now, but hopefully this means my order is shipping sometime in the next month, I won't hold my breath either way, and was very impressed with the email response time at least, which gives me some hope.

    Thanks for sharing this, it seems like they may have either replaced Olivia or added some additional support. I had the same message with no signature. Just sent them another message to see if I am getting expedited shipping as well.

    From an email with GHL last week:
    (Emphasis mine)
    EDIT: of course, my order for a replacement GH was a December order and I still haven't heard anything about it shipping, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    Trevor reading emails over the weekend? I suspect their 4/20 special may have peeved a lot of folks waiting for months for the return of their hoppers, along with the number of PayPal disputes increasing. Squeaky wheels are not helpful when you have a lot of angry customers and need to keep the cash flow coming in....

    Nice! I sent an email asking if they had a new anticipated ship date on the Electric Blue almost two weeks ago and haven’t heard back. So I went ahead and asked for a refund. I’m not going through this 2015 reboot again.

    I mean seriously, wtf are they making heat treated hoppers when there are so many others that need to be fulfilled. This shit is ridiculous. They really need to stop, take a damn course on how to run a business.

    Happy to report my stainless steel is functioning at 100% finally. New back end seems to be perfect. Smooth dial, no heat, and no flickering so far.
    Yep.
    Same, that's why I spent it on my two perfectly functioning Grasshoper vaporizers that put pretty much anything else on the market to shame :D

    Glad I slept on an HT purchase... Better saving today. Pretty ridiculous, but oh well.

    I contacted Aus Vapes, they have some circa 3000 series SS units...
    They basically told me to buy a Crafty or an Air instead... Which just isn't an option for me.

    Crafty - Non user replaceable battery and (1.) as a long term option it's worse off than my hoppers (which I've had for over 2 years now, either alternates warranty periods).

    (2.) I doubt the Air will satisfy me.
    The Mighty was close to it though, but suffers fate (1.) and costs more!

    I just got fed up (ish) with the VapCap, which pumps alright clouds. But seriously, it's nearly 4/20/2018 and there just isn't anything out there that even begins to compete with the hopper.

    Reliability I could care more about, but as an only downside I simply don't care, I just want to enjoy my amassment of chocolate and caramel Kush properly.

    So HT it is, always wanted one and it's a decent enough deal.

    I wonder how this will play out lol

    Yep HT is tempting but never saw one which is so nice to justify the additional high costs.

    totally fair.

    I plan on palming off one of my other units once they're back. Then it becomes a small cost upgrade for a nicer colour and fresh all round unit.
    Plus I never really loved my blue one, and I had already sussed getting it engraved. So, should be pretty happy whenever this all comes together with a personalised custom unit. Next up is Ed for one of those wooden beauties

    Ok, if you are able to disassemble a regular ti it should not need much time to torch them to your desired colouration.

    Yeah perhaps a heat sink over the front end could allow for it even.
    But I don't own a furnace or a propane jet, I doubt I'd get a finish that nice. Hard to say how good it is either way, it'll be interesting to see.

    I don't think we are able to disassemble our Grasshoppers to the extent where we would be able to heat treat them ourselves without damaging the heater or circuit board. Also I suspect HL would claim any attempt to do so would likely invalidate the warranty.

    Yeah, slow yield 3D prints. Big limitation for the project... Super annoying having to wait still!

    No two ways about it

    And what's the dead horse in your opinion? Can't remember we have ever spoke about this theme.

    Hmmmm, another sale, yet the Electric Blue has been pushed back again. As has the Rose color and all hoppers. I’ve sent several nice, and not so nice emails, and they’ve responded to NONE.

    Done being nice. PayPal dispute started. Complaint filed with Colorado Attorney General.

    I was wondering when something like this might happen. At some point their inaction was bound to piss the wrong person off. How about the BBB? Might they help as well?
