Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
CP Drop forward (flame)
Marker Setup: Currently...Black to red fade body (cocker) , mini-rock reg, STO ram, bomb 3 (4)-way, freeflow internals, fighter x 7.0 drop, eclipse blade with dye stickies. all nice and unassembled
Strengths: - big drop and Big on the forward
-cheap....but
Weaknesses: -Holes dont line up right on my trigger frame!
- Bad ordering experiance
Review: Well, I read the reviews on this product and it seemed like it would be better than...christmas. I Must admit that you get what you pay for with these people. I paid 15$ (including shipping) and recieved about a 15$ chunk of poorly annodized metal. There are a few spots on mine (where the metal was cut out) where large patches of aluminum dully shine through.

-2 for shoddy appearance

When i ordered their website i had the option of the drop being shipped either UPS or USPS Priority mail. I picked Priority and paid, lo and behold about a week later i get it via UPS ground. I opened the package and written on the invoice was a rather rude letter telling me that "WE" dont ship "USPS" and if USPS is required than there will be a 5$ charge. Now...that wouldnt have been so bad if they wouldve just told me. They were kind enough to send me the bill in an email, so why didnt they tell me that there was a shipping problem? It was frusterating.

-1 for shipping goof's

Also, the slot to screw in your drop to your trigger frame isnt long enough. Lucky for me i have 4 holes in my trigger frame so that wasnt a problem, but honestly...real sloppy they could at least have quality control!
-3
Conclusion: I say, if you dont care about looks, and want to deal with a company that has big PR and Shipping problems go ahead. Its cheap and it works (for me) as soon as I get the money though I will be purchasing a CP Flame drop. I hate to rate this so low, but i feel that people need to know my experiance with Fighter X. IF the cosmetics and shipping were fixed this would easily be a 9-10 product. I hope that I just got a lemon.

If you really dont think this is helpful please post a comment so I can adjust the review.
Currently I stand by my rating of Fighter X Sports 7.0 drop. True, I may have gotten a lemon, but dont the users of the site deserve to know that that posibilty exists?

Hi. My name is Gari and I am from Fighterxsports. I would like to inform you that we have not received any complaints about rudeness or shipping. Our auctions clearly state that we do not ship USPS and if this is your only option then contact us and we will make special arrangements. We ship a lot of product everyday and it is not cost effective to have someone take these to the post office everyday. We do not charge a handling fee, only the actual shipping cost. When Kocker 141 only paid enough to ship USPS he still received his part UPS even though the shipping cost was a higher price. He also never contacted us about any defects. We evaluate and replace defective parts on a case by case basis and we never want to deliver an inferior product. Please go to ebay and read our feedback. We have a 99.2% positive feedback rating. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at sales@fighterxsports.com

Hmm Kocker141 I think you did get a lemon. A few of my friends and i ordered these off of the aforementioned ebay auction and recieved them the next day (!). Personally, we love them-the anodizing may not be perfect, but we prefer function over looks anyways. The drop is nice and huge, which is needed for nitro tanks or 20 oz co2s. Thanks to Gari and the (ususally) great shipping, we are still using these many months later and are very pleased with our drops.

The reason you didnt receive any complaints is because I no longer wanted to deal with your buisness. With such a small company I believe it would not be too hard to identify a "lemon". Also based on the treatment i recieved I did not want to even think about wasting my time on a refund/exchange.

*edit* The drop was not purchased from their ebay auctions, it was from their own website a while ago....
