No Carbon Fiber?!?! What the deuce?!

    Ah, thanks for that John, I figured that with the depth constraints you guys would have considered all possible alternatives already... I'm just marvelling at the colour choices available in common or garden variety carbon fiber these days. ;-)

    I'm... in awe...
    That is going to be such a pain for you to have to do.
    Here's hoping it remains relatively flexible once it's coated.



  • Hi John, its Orlando Brown here....

    WOW! :o ... what can I say this is obviously very disappointing for you and us, but seriously where do you draw the line? ... correct me if I am wrong, but haven't most of the problems or setbacks been due to some arbitrary changes to materials/other etc?

    Isn't this akin to the last time? .. Last year December 8th I recall you was meant to meet me after the guys who messed up the last time by making a change without consulting you... I don't know what wheels need to be greased to get this deeper problem resolved but I know if this was another company e.g. Apple this wouldn't be an issue...You wont be shown one material, led to believe this is what your going to get, then they try to take you for a "mug" with something different...

    I dunno mate, but its not on!... and in regards to the cheap knock offs, I pray this does not become an issue for you because this is what I think its down too.



  • John,

    You've been a pretty stand up guy and have owned up to the delays and even gone above and beyond. Working with China is tough especially if you aren't there to watch every little step as they will always try to change things to be cheaper and faster.

    That being said I signed up for three rings all with black carbon inlays. Now I understand you will be giving vouchers for the carbon ring when they come out, however I'm wondering if it would be for all three rings since that is what I originally ordered or if its just for one.

    I'm more than happy receiving one ring first without carbon fiber and getting a voucher for the carbon one. Then receiving the other two once the carbon fiber rings are ready.

    Cheers keep up the good job.



  • I just wanted to thank you guys for putting on an awesome Kickstarter. Almost all of them have as many if not more issues than we have seen with the NFC Ring. However, very few I have been a part of can compare to the communication NFC Ring has had with the backers. Even less have delivered at least something so quickly.
    Keep up the awesome work!



  • I am pretty sure I had ordered a stealth bomber ring, at least that's what I wanted, but I am not getting an option for tug black on black ring. Any suggestions? Keep up the good work and thank you for keeping us informed.



  • I'm a patient guy, as long as I have an approximate date to look forward to an extra ring is an awesome bonus for me...

    It'd be good to get a new email with updated details, to confirm the current order & future promises (voucher method? and perhaps also advertise the pre-order discount).

    There shouldn't be any confusion here whatsoever, your original order stands and the only thing changed now is the carbon fiber inlay.
    If you haven't had an automatic change to black then you've been emailed to choose the new colour of the affected inlay - simply choose that new colour and click the button on the webpage which the email takes you to then all done.

    What should happen for instance if you ordered the Collectionn and originally chose stealth bomber, titanium/black cf/black Alpha, titanium/black cf/black normal then you'll receive emails to change the two titanium rings and the stealth bomber will automagically become black/black/black.



  • > If we need you to change your ring inlay choices we will email you within the next 24 hours to ask you which design you wish to chose from

    Have the emails been sent yet? I haven't received it. (stealth bomber)

    What rings did you have on order?


  • Community Helper

    If you only have the stealth bomber then I believe that should be an automatic change to black from black cf.

    sorry, was just editing my post to include that! it's a stealth bomber.



  • @Lokki

    oh, right, I just re-read the email:

    > 1) Backers that ordered black fiber & black inlay cover will have the choice to replace the black fiber inlay cover with black, white or transparent.

    > 5) Stealth bomber rings will be changing back to their original design of black metal with black inlays.

    I stopped reading at 1) but 1) is later superseded by 5) in the case of black metal...

    ok, thanks, all black is what I wanted originally but couldn't have, so I'm happy!

    No worries mate, glad we sorted it out
    I'm in agreeance about the all black stealth bomber, should be very cool. And stealthy.


  • NFC Ring Team

    @mr3rown RE not getting choice from Apple. I believe you guys should have choice, I'm willing to fight for that.


  • NFC Ring Team

    @Lokki thanks for resolving the issue RE confusion over stealth bomber. For anyone doubting it @Lokki is correct, as per the email stealth bombers are automatically being changed to B-B-B(All black) as per the original design(July 2013...........)



  • @Lokki

    If you only have the stealth bomber then I believe that should be an automatic change to black from black cf.
    Yep, Lokki beat me to it.



  • Ordered a normal titanium with Grey and Black carbon. I guess that means black and white and no survey? Transparent would be nicer than white IMHO. But I guess I can use that as my 'private part' for now.
    Sorry if I missed some info but why not just ship the fail-carbon with vouchers for a new cf 2.0 nfc ring in the future?

    Hmm, I suspect your silver carbon fiber may have changed to white because the other inlay was a different colour. The change emails are for when an automatic change would create a ring with two inlays the same, to avoid potential confusion with usage later. The exception is the Stealth Bomber because Stealth.
    There are so many changes made that if everyone were to get more emails for individual order re-confirmation it would slow things down even further.



  • Normal Size Ring with Titanium Normal Color Metal.  Your inlay choices are Black and Silver Carbon Fiber and the Ring Size is US Size: 7.5.
    Normal Size Ring with Titanium Normal Color Metal.  Your inlay choices are Black and Black Carbon Fiber and the Ring Size is US Size: 15.
    

    I only got an email for the size 15 ring. I think I'm right in thinking I should expect 2 emails.

    Is there really no chance of a confirmation order email?
