The ordering and delivery:
The delivery was pain in the xxx. As you can see from my signature it took a month insted in a 3-5 bussines day like WL says in its web site.
I did time to time take contact to "customer service" and was asking about delivery, tracking number and wanting money back, cause it took a lot longer than it should (3-5 bussines day)

The packet came to Finland whitout problems whit customs :)
Update: No VAT were charged.

Summary:
Ordering :):):)
Delivery :(:(
Customer care :(

The product it self:
I now understand why some laser pointer doesn't have a pocket clip in them. When I put batteries to the Core its kinda heavy and wouldn't trust a clip to hold it securely in a pocket. It would be sad day when deacent pointer would hit the ground.
The casing, tail cap, momentery on/off button all feels nice and solid. To me it looked and feld like quality.
The button feeling or usebity was good. You do feel when the button is pressed and if there is a quiet room you may hear the quiet click when pussing the button. I don't have anything bad to say about this pointer.

The green laser dot is brighter than I though. It's very visible in indoors. I would like to see how visible it's when shine on the wall that has overhead projector image (bad English?). My little step brother was also stunning about its visibility and beams visibility in night (it was slowly snowing).

Summary: Me and my bro were very pleased whit the Core. My bro liked the black plastic case were you can keep the pointer when not useing it. The Core was what we want and need from it.
I'll give five of five smileys to the Core: :):):):):)

Great review; glad you're happy. Many people here have had problems with Wicked Lasers (especially involving long waits).

Glad to see you found my website useful. :)

Epilogue (part 1?)
I though the beam would be more visible at night than it is. The beam picture on wikipedia is not 5mW IMHO!

On bright day the dot aint very visible after about 10 meter distances.

The plastic storage case has a hinge which is nice thinking for long term usege of case. The case is robust but the weakest link is the locking mecanism. But if that would came to problem I'd guess you can always use a rubber band.

This may sound stubid :shhh: The case of the pointer feel balanced in a hand. It doesn't feel that it would flip from your hand. The gravity point feels to be in center proximity of pointer. This pointer can be used which an index finger of thumb.
I'm trying to say that back in the days my mom had a cell phone that felt like it would flip forward cause there were weight on top of the cell phone.
Hope that I didn't sound stupier than I am :D

The Future
If I would have more money to silly things I would: :whistle:
Have a Dragon Lasers Aurora 5mw 405nm violet, some phosphorus paint and Diffraction Gratings.
