Was I scammed? :)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey folks of OCN


Yes, I am opening up yet ANOTHER thread
Last weekend I got all my new WC'ing stuff through the Mailorder.
One of the few parts I ordered was 3 meters TFC Feser Blue UV hose.

I Quote the text from the website I ordered from:
"Feser Tube naturally possesses a „TFC - Feser Tube“ signature.
Thus you cannot mistake this hose for any other!"

Source


Now the thing is, the hoses did not come with ANY branding at all.
And the website itself specifically implies that it DOES come with branding.
It were just cutted up hoses bound in a coil, and thrown into the box, without any branding at all, on any part of the 3 meters.

Was I scammed, and did I get some el-cheapo hoses?


I must say that the hose does bend very well, so I really doubt it, thus I made this thread, to hope someone can verify it.
It makes a 45 degrees bend in +- 3 cm, without kinks and no anti kink springs or w/e.
the bend goes from my Graphics card to the Outlet hole in my case.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: err, typo in the threads name, fail

I have the white feser tubing and based on the site, it is supposed to have the 'TFC - Feser Tube' logo. But I'm looking at my loop now and I can't see any. It is every 800mm, so I may have cut it off not knowing. But with a quick glimpse, I do no see any. You may be ok

EDIT: Can't you edit the thread name if you click 'Go Advanced' after clicking Edit?

I'd personally email Feser first and ask do they supply tubing without branding to re-sellers.

I remember ordering, half a year ago, feser tubing by length, so I got one long tube in the size that I wanted.
I also ordered a package of feser tubing later on (not by length). Got the same type of tubing in a feser package. None of them had the brand name on the tubing itself.

I bought a bunch of uv white not to long back and noticed that there was little too no printing on it... pay real close attention though and behold, it is there, its just been rubbed off. Its printed on with some real crap ink, looks nothing like the screenshots, this is not a bad thing, i didnt want there sorry as branding all over my tubing anyhow.

No branding on my tubing. Honestly though, until you brought it up I never thought much about it.
