Got a ring, thoughts after having it for a couple weeks.



  • I received a mysterious package a couple weeks ago and what do you know, it was from NFC Ring! I was somewhat confused as I had not gotten a shipping notification so I wasn't expecting it. I tore it open to get at the precious contents. What I found inside was a little unexpected. Inside was a silver standard ring with clear inlays. I had originally ordered the stealth bomber ring but as we already know there were issues with the black rings and the carbon fiber. I thought i was supposed to get a silver with black inlays. I like the ring so far, but it wasn't exactly what I expected. First thing I noticed was both inlays were the same size. Both seem to be the private inlay size. The inlays work, I had slight issues at first but my S3 has seen better days and I busted the screen on my HTC DNA so until I fix the DNA the S3 is all I got. The clear coat on top of the inlay is also not very smooth, not saying it is rough, just covered in flat spots instead of a nice smooth curve. It isn't something noticeable, but it is something that I feel should be looked into once bigger issues have been fixed. The metal ring itself seemed to be very well made, no imperfections that I could see. The ring is showing signs of wear already, most likely my fault as my shift knob in my car has a titanium coating which I'm sure didn't help I think I should have gone a half size up but it is still wearable. Overall I love the ring, but i would like some clarification on what exactly happened here. No shipping info before I got the ring and also not really what I thought I was gonna get. Since we were promised the stealth bombers once manufacturing issues were fixed I am not terribly concerned with getting clear inlays instead of black and it isn't anything that will keep me from purchasing more rings in the future. John and co have done a fantastic job keeping us all updated on any issues that have come up. This was one of my most anticipated kickstarters aside from my beer growlers and I can't wait to see how this company will grow.

    Hi, outstanding stealth bombers were replaced with off the shelf stock, so the ring style was pretty much random in the end. Your notification may also have gone into your junk mail. ;-)



  • I got a delivery confirmation for my pre-order stealth bomber.... I wonder what will turn up, the delivery confirmation actually said i was getting the stealth bomber, not something else but I suspect it will be an off the shelf replacement too ?? Its been a week since the shipping confirmation. I was hoping it would have arrived by now.

    Still no idea on when I'm getting my 2 kickstarter rings either. The wait is frustrating but I'm hoping it will be all over in the next few weeks.



  • @jasok2 Don't worry I'm sure you'll recieve a stealth bomber I recieved mine a few days ago.

    Well its almost been 2 weeks since the delivery confirmation email :( still nothing... I do live in Sydney Australia, I'm thinking it shouldn't take this long, and fingers crossed nothing has gone wrong.

    IT ARRIVED, its black, its awesome, it works, its beautiful, and its too big :( damn, my fault... It was a pre-order and one size bigger than the rings I ordered on Kickstarter. so hopefully the kickstarter rings will turn up soon.

    lol, drat? Can't use it as a thumb ring? One full size is a fair step up.

    yeah, I'm realising my mistake. I'm going to see if anyone I know wants it before going through the return / swap option.

    Mate, that is a real shame. I don't think the likelihood of getting another SB back is very good.
