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.

Got a ring, thoughts after having it for a couple weeks.
RE: No Carbon Fiber?!?! What the deuce?!
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.
