Ok, i ordered a thunder alley pipe the end of July from Bob, and i was all excited for it to come. but then i call him up to see where its at the middle of Augest and UPS had dinted it or something :cry:. soo he started making me a new one. I call two weeks ago seeing if its done because my old pipes endcap blew out, and it was getting ceramic coated. then i was like "YES next week" :cry: :cry:. Last week came and it didn't show up. I call again and its still getting ceramic coated.

Has anyone else had this much problems trying to get a TA? I think im just venting because im getting a little perturbed (sp) and i just want my stinking pipe already!

Bob is at the whim of Embee when you want a coated pipe, because he can't ship them until he gets them back from Embee (the ceramic coater). I ordered my TA last October and got it about 1-1/2-2 months later and I absolutely love it. It will be worth the wait, trust me.

Dude, check out my posts from several months ago. Same story with TA. The WORST customer service around. I kept getting the "it's lost", "it's at the ceramic coater's" stories for WEEKS. Finally he stopped returning my calls and emails. I had to threaten with legal action to get a straight answer from the guy. Took over 2 months to come. I'm sure he probably has good intentions, but his service sucks. I'm not surprised that he doesn't lose more business. I guess people would rather have the pipe instead of customer service. . . :cry:
