Soloshot seem to work to a different timescale than the rest of us.. Kinda like dog years, as we all know 1 human year = 7 dog years. Doing the math I think Soloshot work on a similar timescale to dogs:
When you placed your order Soloshot were stated 3 months delivery. These were obviously 'special' Soloshot months that are much longer than human months. So doing the math, in round numbers you placed the order 15 human months ago and in that time delivery has gone down from an initial three Soloshot months, to (at best) 1 Soloshot month.
I'd be fuming if it were me.
It's hard to believe they ever genuinely expected to deliver it by the original early in 2016 date. Either they are totally incompetent and dont have a clue how long these things take to bring to market (which is hard to accept with this being the third version) or they simply lied about delivery dates in order to mislead people into making up-front payments.
Having said that, if it works as advertised it will be great...
As I said earlier ... I honestly think because they farmed out production to a factory in far east ... they were not allowed enough credit and had to put up funds to show good faith. Hence the Pre-Order and people like me paid into.
To be honest - I am fully aware that is the usual reason for Pre-Order .... but when they advertise Pre-Order and a probable delivery date - they don't get it more than a year wrong !!
Yes IF it performs as they say - it will be a great piece of kit ... but until I have it in hand and see what it can do ... their words mean nothing ... as they say "Words are cheap".
This don't make a bit of sense in that after a successful production of Soloshot2 that most everyone likes, WHY, with all the knowledge of that production would they be slow and ignorant to a new AND IMPROVED production of the same 'type' of camera!!?? I really hope those folks are for real as a lot of fake companies are being discovered all the time. With the Soloshot2 being a success, why in the world would they have trouble funding such a great and sought after product!! I'm not buying their excuses and sounds like they are buying time for some reason! I doubt any attorney would touch this and for what they charge it wouldn't be worth their time and I doubt the credit card company would pursue this being a foreign land or unknown type bank to them. Funny they choose a bank that don't recognize your funding type of card company. I would like to see a REAL set of numbers of people waiting for such a camera. Good luck getting a refund if that is even possible anymore. Like they say, they appreciate your waiting. I say try and get your money back and buy that Soloshot2 from Fireman.........if he is willing to sell. Maybe since you expressed how distraught you are directly to them, and you told us you have givin' them a piece of your mind from time to time and told them how unhappy you are with their service, they are making you wait that much longer
I understand and agree but as far as I'm concerned, the SS3 does not exist until you actually have it in your hand. Forget the videos you see or the promises they make because it could all be smoke and mirrors. I really hope this works out for you real soon. Those goons are what hurt good folk's trust towards otherwise good businesses after a bad experience. Good luck and look forward to hearing good news soon!
