I got my 7w Stricker OK. Problem was the light saber I ordered was not included and there was no explanation. I contacted them and was told it was out of stock. In the meantime I had order the three laser Green Red Violet 304 Laser pointers package on 2 August 2018 along with the light saber attachment for that size laser. When it was not shipped in a timely manner I emailed again asking for an update. After two more emails I was told they the 17 inch lightsaber I ordered was out of stock but they did have a shorter 13 inch lightsaber in stock and could ship that one; which I agreed to. On 24 August 2018 I emailed again asking for an update. I was told the three laser package had shipped and that I had ordered two lightsabers that were out of stock.

I get it that there is a possible language issue but this is not acceptable to me. If a product is not in stock the web site should indicate so. If a product is offered as a substitute it should be in stock. If I agree to accept the substitute product that should mean the order for the substituted product is canceled. Not to mention that when I tried to check on the status of the three laser package they said had shipped the status was preparing for shipping.


While I get it that what I call top tier lasers (say 1w or above) may need extra time to put together a $US12 laser is something I would expect to be ready to ship. As it is it will be close to a month, or possibly more, before an order for three twelve dollar lasers is shipped. This really bums me out.:thinking:

It does seem you have a legitimate complaint. Keep us in the loop, will be interesting to see what Sanwu says. How are you liking your 7 watt-er.???

Beam shots are always nice, just saying (hint-hint). :)

I have only ordered lenses from Sanwu. But, I have also been dissatisfied by their slow time to ship after receiving payment. I feel your pain on this one and also agree with you. I find Sanwu overpriced on their lenses and very slow to ship. I have never wanted any of their lasers, so I have never ordered any.

Maybe they send it all over on the same row boat they are sending that RGB we have been waiting so long too see.

Their G2 and G7 and 3.3XBE are mostly what I wanted and the G2's I currently have seem to be out of square with the lens barrel, not happy about this.

20mm with NUBM44(A) and sanwu G2 (#1)

Yikes! That is terrible that they can't get their G2s in the housings straight. I would be dissatisfied as well. Oh, + Rep.

over 24 hours since I got an email with tracking number and no updates from FedEx; still same message sender is preparing for shipping.

Here is a youtube vid. Went to Walmart and bought a package of yellow balloons and since they were out of black bought a pack of gray ones. Not a big shock that the yellow popped instantly; but the gray one would not pop, just got a slow leak and then produced some nice smoke before finally deflating.

Interesting, I would have thought the gray would have burnt better than the yellow being a darker color. Thanks for sharing, enjoy. :)

The reason for buying yellow balloons was kinda the same reason the sky is blue, because the yellow light from the sun turns the sky blue. I thought the gray would be as close to black as you could get; but guess not. I did buy some black balloons and they popped with no problem.

Still playing around with the focus using the 3X BE and the line seems similar to what I have seen in other reviews. Have to say the red JL PL-E I have has such a nice red dot compared to the more of a line in the blue. But the blue beam seems to go on for ever when you point it up in the sky.

They diffidently are a sight to see on a dark night with no lights around. When I get up in the mountains and can throw some beams I always get a smile that makes me look like Cheshire Cat.

The 44’s they use in the 7 watt-er have such a wide beam the BE’s are kinda mandatory. They do do a good job of tightening the beam up a bunch. Still love to see some beam shots from your boat if and when you can. Think some beam shots over the ocean have never been posted. Would be interesting to take a gander at.

I am at my brother's ranch now while he is recovering. I am anxious to get back to the boat and it looks like temps are cooling down so I may leave for the islands early this year. Problem is no internet out in the ocean. But I will definitely be seeing what a powerful laser looks like over the ocean.

Hope your brother’s recovery is a speedy one. Just take lot of pictures when your out, so when you get back to land you can share some. They gotta be a sight to see. You might want to think about picking up a 1watt green 520 or 532 before you go out. They throw one awesome looking beam also.

I am definitely getting a green. Been looking at the JL-E Pro in green, but not sure about the 520 or 532. Not to mention if a DPSS or LD is a better choice. To complicate things even more the Yamataka Series Stun Gun & Led Light & laser dazzler or even the non-lethal dazzler would be able to serve double duty as a defense option, even if it was not that great an option. Almost too many factors to consider but the DPSS seems to have the best beam; from what I have read.

I have a Jetlaser Pistol dazzler, see my link below to eye ball it. It’s a 600mw 532. Is quite a novelty, fully functional, what’s nice about it is it electronically changes from a beam to a dazzler/fan. Do wish it would fan out more, but it is what it is. If you decide to go with the Yamataka give me a pm first. I’m a Sanwu fan so my first choice would be a Sanwu 1 watt 520. But everyone has their flavor. So whatever you decide.

I still have a bunch of black balloons that I got on eBay years ago. They are very inexpensive. You might want to try there.

Good tip, thanks.

The three lasers arrived to day. It was worth the wait. These things are stupid fun to play with and the dazzlers are impressive. Looks like I got some extra stuff, just not sure what it is yet. Pix and a mini review to follow.
