Default Question about Wicked lasers

I am considering buying an arctic spider 3 1w laser from wicked lasers and have a few questions about shipping to Canada

1)How often if at all do these kinds of lasers get seized by CBSA/customs
2)How long is average shipping times (I live near Toronto)

I have heard so many mixed reviews when it comes to shipping from wicked lasers and i was hoping i could hear so responses from people who have had experience with them. Thanks for any input you guys could give me.

I would recommend buying a similar laser from a member or from laserbtb in example. You are spending an awful lot of money for something which can be done much cheaper, and in almost all cases be of better quality as well.

Check out: laserbtb.com

I took a look at their website and they look half decent but i'm just not a fan of the build and having the key system, also most of their 1W lasers are the same price as the arctic ($200).
My main concern is what iv heard about wicked lasers never shipping with no refund or it talking months to arrive. i just want to know if any of these rumors are true or am i safe to order from them even though its expensive.

Wicked Lasers is a company that I will never trust again.

You would do much better to buy from SANWU

Just my one cent, dont buy from wicked lasers. Their shipping will take forever. If you are lucky, you will get the laser in 6 months. Not to mention that their lasers are overpriced. Getting the laser other sites like the one hap suggested will be cheaper and in better quality

Here's where I get mine. They have some pretty good prices and stock good quality batteries
