    Ungh. Chris @ E-Link is giving me major anxiety! Ordered and shipped my 'Orangiri' last Thursday, and it's still not here!

    Pretty sure I can see Singapore if I stand on my roof. ;) What's the hold up!?! :(o_O

    Lol... if there's one thing that buying stuff online has taught me over the past few years (and I have probably bought more than $4k worth of various stuff from Amazon, eBay, and various online badminton sites)... it is patience...

    But even then I'm still impatiently waiting for my reel of G-Tone 5 to arrive from England...

    It could just be the not-so-rare case of both postal services taking their own sweet times and not updating the trackers. Even with local ems deliveries from abroad. I've had my **** arrive before the tracker was updated to reflect its status.

    Seriously, a WEEK to get something that's an 8hr flight away. I get stuff quicker from ENGLAND. :mad:

    Customs probably thinks it has heroin stuffed in the handle or something. Which would be great, coz then I could buy 400 new rackets! o_O

    Has anyone bought a racket before from E-Link? I finally got the racket, but it is 'not right'. I won't elaborate until I hear back from them, but right at this particular juncture, if you were thinking about ordering from them I'd hold off until I hear back.

    "Not right" as in poorly packaged, damaged, used, etc?

    Won't go into details until I see how professional they're going to be with remedying the situation. Lets just say if you must buy from them....limit it to soft goods. o_O

    Thanks for replying, Chris.

    I was unaware of the proceedure, so thanks for clarifying for everyone's convenience.

    I am sure you will find that both of our reputations on this forum are beyond question, and I look forward to receiving a new racket after I send the 'old' one back to you first thing Monday.

    Thank you for your professionalism and I look forward to giving E-Link glowing praise in the future!

    The TK Onigiri vs TK 6000 which is better for speed/power and are they both small head frame sizes.

    Would both in 4U be comparable in BP and performance?

    I'm just thinking is the Onigiri easily playable or is it similar to Zspeed and have smaller head and difficult to get the sweet spot or power..

    How do you compare this to VT70 or VT80 3U or 4U in headweight?

    Okay so I got my replacement Orangiri! E-Link finally came through, although it took a ridiculous amount of emails and nearly 3 weeks between me ordering.....recieving.....sending broken one back....waiting.....new one being sent.....me finally getting it.

    I literally just got it, so it's unstrung, but Victor has cut costs a bit on this new one. The holographic parts are now silver and it's gloss instead of matte. Still, it's fun to have one of each colour :)

    Westcoast, the Oni's head is smaller but only the bottom half. The top of the racket is the same as a 'regular' ISO. It plays like any other racket.

    I have a 4U VT80, and the Voltric is just slightly 'more' of everything. Slightly heavier, slightly stiffer, slightly more head heavy. I think the Oni is quicker and more forgiving. Seems like with the Voltric, it's sweetspot is smaller and softer.

    Yeah, just move your head side to side really fast. Same effect.

    Looking forward to trying out the Zymax tonight. Haven't played Ashaway for a few years.
