Yah I have a basic rule for expecting shipments to arrive at mi casa - order it AHEAD of expected need time ... that's half the game of this hobby - waiting on parts that you didn't know that you needed ..... I feel your pain, bud.ADD
: ummm ... ? has anyone ever noticed that Sidewinders and Petras Tech Shop have the exact same address ... ??
They both use yahoo secure checkout, so it's the same template. Cheaper than Google IIRC, so that is probably why. And I did order it ahead of time, that is what sucks. I ordered it on the weekend, before my other fittings even got here (the second order won't even be here til tomorrow), so I imagined with an order placed Sunday they would have shipped it before Thursday when they tout that "usually same business day" crap. Oh well, I ordered enough to make some mistakes, have some extra and enough to accommodate adding 2 more 480's with a pedestal in the near future (hopefully), so I shouldn't have to deal with them again. I'll order it from Petra Tech next time to see how they are with shipping.
While I understand that shipping takes the time it takes, Socketus, nevertheless I HAVE to pay for 2 day shipping in Hawaii for pretty much everything online (rarely any other options), and I expect when paying that much that it should get here in at least 3 days. I never hold firm to 2 days, even though Fedex has NEVER been more than 2 days, sometimes even delivering it early and within 1 day! But, Sidewinder only offered UPS and USPS. UPS 2 day was $67 for 12 feet of Durelene!?! So of course I opted for the USPS at $25.
