Back here in an all-but-dead-thread to rag about -- what? Shipping issues!
So sad that HL has continued their empty promise policy regarding, now, their new charger, the redesigned triangular SS case and of course the perennially elusive leather sleeve.
The estimated ship dates for the charger and case have shifted away from a 'date certain'(!) starting point to a now-nebulous January 2018.
And the sleeves are as always right around the next bend, shipping in December 2017.
HL has also rolled out (figuratively, not actually) two special edition hot colors, but you can't get them yet, nope, not for the holidaze.
For any of these carrots on sticks, HL asking for folks' money in advance.
And lastly, even the Grasshopper itself, in SS or Ti is "2 weeks" out. So odd, to not have your product available for the hottest retail period of the calendar year.
I'm wondering, is there anyone who's ordered a Hopper recently with this 2 week expectation who has had to wait longer than that?
Or conversely, has anyone who ordered one with the 2 week lead time actually received it in that time?
I'm sure a lot of of you will think I'm bashing the company, hating on the product or just being a Christmas grouch. But I happen to have been on the ride for years now and have thoroughly enjoyed multiple Hoppers even after having made double digit returns for service. But damn, it was 2-1/2 years ago they said a sleeve would be included with my Ti pre-order purchase and I still haven't seen it...
