To buy or not to buy. Im new to lasers and i want to buy some of thier lasers, but ive heard the horror stories :) . It seems like it takes months for everyone to get it, some people dont even get it, some people after half a year get the wrong one, and some get a good one with fast shipping. Do you think i will get my laser in under two months if i buy from them? Is there anyway to buy there lasers from a person in the US. Thanks

Wicked lasers does take some time to ship, but mine took about a month to replace. Customs denies entry to many of these lasers so don't be surprised if they take your laser and WL has to send you another one. They may have bad costumer service and long waits, but I havent heard of anyone not getting their laser sooner or later. If you're patient, I think you should get one of their lasers because once I got mine it was so slick that I completely forgot that it took 4 months to get my first laser sent.

Well thats a coin toss for you. Thinklasers.com sells wicked lasers but all they do is order one for you from china, so no. Go to the sell/trade forum, wicked lasers pop up every once in a while. Check ebay too

I bought one about a month ago now, and they still haven't shipped it. They wont even reply to tell me if it's backordered or what. So yeah, there customer service is HORRIBLE. But I've searched around and everyone gets them EVENTUALLY. Right now that eventually is feeling like years. :mad:

Is there any particular reason you want this laser? You can buy a kit for a 445 on the forum that is twice the power and $100. Not to mention a laser from the forum will be focusable. Some people have even taken apart the Arctic and made it into a laser worth $300. And I am Positive you will be waiting over a month.

I would love an Arctic simply because of the host, is unbelievably badass and there is no denying it. If anything I would get one and pay someone in this forum to modify it for performance!

I agree it is an awesome host. Keep an eye out in the Buy, Sell, Trade section and one is bound to show up I have seen them there before.

daguin made a few.

I got mine from ebay. Check with then 3-4 times daily as auctions dont last long...ebay pulls them because its illegal. I love my Spyder, it really impresses people. (After they are amazed, I bring out my Maglite 2W 445 and just leave them speechless).
I have no complaints about my Arctic, its a cool little laser even if it is overpriced for its output. You should check the for sale thread, I think there is one guy with 4 for sale. The thread is about 10-14 days old so you may have to dig a bit for it.

I know what you mean about the horror stories. but before i read them ordered the core on about July 30. today, being the 29th i just got the email that it was from Asia and in Kansas. i am in Colorado. even though the wait has been 4 weeks it is going to be worth it. i think wicked lasers is up and running again because the support team now works too. If i were you i would go ahead and order from them. i think the days of waiting more than a month is over.

hope it helps!

Also i saw on their you tube that they have designed a new s3 sires laser called the krypton. My internet sucks so it was all a blur but it sounds cool. it can break through earth's atmosphere. pretty cool huh?

Join their forums. You will have no problem at all finding the horror stories about how bad customer service is and lack of shipping anything even after you paid weeks and sometimes months ago. I had an order in for an Arctic, waited several weeks and asked if they even shipped it. They haven't even shipped it yet and that was weeks after I paid for it AND being in stock. I told them to cancel my order and refund my money. It took 4 days to get my money back.

you were lucky.. 4 days for a refund...not bad compared to the 2 months it took them to refund me....and that was after 7 months of waiting for my laser! IMHO Wicked Lasers = Bad JuJu. i would steer clear.....but thats just me.
