I never really liked sandana and I can understand now why some people I knew left the company.

Would be nice to see someone else buy out the name and rights to their prints and bring it back. I think GI would take it in the right direction... if they don't slap their logo all over it, and keep the Sandana brand separate from the rest of their product line.

sorry if you dont see it that way.

Capitalize your ****, sense*, and use punctuation. The grammar police is here.

And you can get ripped off from a store you buy directly from easily. What if they sold you a defective product and didn't allow you to return it because it "wasn't their problem?" What if they sold you a product that just never worked in the first place. Then you try bringing it back and all they claim is that your broke it, and they can't help you.

Now please, tell me more about how buying from a store means you "mostly" won't get ripped off.

I vote 187 take it over, I was able to get him the deal to make the sandana mask wraps. Perhaps he should be able to take over for the soft goods. I wouldnt mind seeing Kohn take it over either, their quality seems to be much much better.

For someone that tried to help Sandana by selling their rights to another guy to use for mask wraps, you sure seem to dislike them enough to dedicate your whole sig to their disfunction and corruption. Why help them out..?

It was prior to all this, thats why. I originally was suppose to become part of their sponsorship coordinating staff, as well as a rep. I had some product Ideas that I was to be going over with to try and launch as well. One of these was the mask wrap ideas, I liked 187's work and decided to contact him about it. He liked the idea, so I then go with malia and brian about it. Pushed it through and got the okay for him to get the licensing. Then about 2 months later is when they decided to dick me over.

Don't put Kohn on a pedestal so quickly, I have plenty of ****ty customer service stories from dealing with kohn. pm me if you care enough to want to know

My dealing with Kohn was exceptional. The stuff I ordered wasnt available, but they made sure to contact me and let me know about it. Then had whomever does the seamstress work to prioritize my order. Next day it was done and on its way to me. stand up people working there. I know in the past they were hit or miss and remember seeing something about them wanting to create better service for their customers.

The biggest issue with kohn was their products didn't have a strong enough lock stitch, so they fell apart. That was quickly addressed.

This doesn't make sense. I can't say that I would ever expect to hear of such poor business on sandana's side.

An explanation is due

The explanation will be all lies and bs. I was lied to three times about a ship date before he lied to paypal. And his 30 or so people are waiting orders which is complete bs.

How does it cut down on the stores chances of getting ripped off. Im a store he had no problem lien to paypal to try and screw me out of close to a grand. Not the first store hes tried to rip off either. Read the other post in the links in my sig.

I thought that was the going rate before any of this?

I think Sandana's are just for people with ugly hair.

Sandana may have dragged their feet like Techna, but it sounds like Sandana isn't making ANY quality products either from the posts in this thread.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
