So I order a handle from Dragon Joystick on Jan 18th (1 handle/silver)…e-mails copied/pasted directly:

paypal.com to Stamper - Jan 18

Dear Will Stamper,
This email confirms that you have paid joebiank@hotmail.com $26.00 USD using PayPal.

Stamper to joebiank - Jan 28

Ordered one of your sticks 10 days ago, wondering what the status is on that? Hasn’t arrived yet, and I haven’t received any sort of confirmation, so I was just curious.

Peace…

joe biank to Stamper - Jan 28

Hey sorry man i just checked and thought the went out. im sending them this week. ill be sure and send an extra shinny one!

Stamper to joe - Jan 29

Thanks man! :slight_smile:

Stamper to joe - Feb 13

Getting pretty tired of this stock Happ stick… :frowning:

Stamper to joe - Mar 1

Any luck on that order?

It’s just a handle, and you live a state away, dude…

Seriously, homeboy lives in Jersey and I’m in PA - put the shit in an envelope and send it. Has anyone ever ordered and actually received one of these? I’d assume I was conned if the handle wasn’t reviewed and mentioned on other sites…and I’d forget about it, but I kinda want my God damn handle. Maybe he thinks I did get it and I’m trying to con him into another one…BUT HEY:

I still have painter tape holding the bottom panel on to save my screwholes so I can go in and upgrade the stick assembly before I seal it up. HINT, JOE.

Anyway…maybe I’m off base here, although I’d like to think I’ve been pretty patient. Maybe the dude died and I missed the memo, and I sound like a total prick right now. Maybe this post is far too long for a 26 dollar matter. Fuck it though…it’s principle at this point.

…on a side note, does anyone know of a similar stick I can buy instead when I decide to cut my losses and trash this dude’s rep? I’d cop a SlikStik but they seem to be down and out…

(Or maybe I should stop being a pretentious dick and just deal with the stock Happ Com. handle.) :rofl:

Retroblast did a review of those handles in 2006

If you ever get the handle be sure to post a pic when it’s installed

Yeah, that’s what I meant by “I’d assume I was conned if the handle wasn’t reviewed and mentioned on other sites…” - the guy got back to me, this time it’s “PayPal problems” and a re-confirmation of my address. I sent him another copy of the PayPal receipt that shows what I bought, when I bought it, how much it cost, and my shipping address.

This is a trip…

shitty.

Looks like it’s a decent handle… sucks you’re having such a shitty time with the whole process.


#8

I have seen flack about this guy on other forums. You are not alone.


#9

The handles are horrible and refract much more than the standard handles. Put them in a P360 or look at Retroblast’s video of P360 movement to see why they suck.


#10

In That vid they use slikstik handles, these are made of stainless steel so they are alot heavier then the dragon ones that are made of aluminium


#11

Nah, these should be considerably lighter and smaller than even the stock Happ handles, that’s the point. Still…that’s a pretty informative video, I didn’t even consider the bounceback on SlikStik handles, those shits look Heavy D. Good knowledge, thanks bro…

Of course I say the DJ’s SHOULD be lighter, I wouldn’t know because I still haven’t received it…it’s March 12th and homeboy’s still yanking my dick around. Guess I’ll get ahold of PayPal for a refund soon…athough I feel like the bullshit I’d have to go through isn’t even worth it. Maybe that’s his angle…

Since he is ‘close’ take a road trip and pay the dude a visit.
