I don't know why FT get stock later than others but it is common for there to be delays with pre-order gear that is likely to be in high demand - I have noticed that stores that charge a higher price get stock faster than here. Ecigone (who are a UK low price/discount store) have them - but they are £115, you will have to wait longer here - but the price I paid was under £75.

The longer delay for splatter editions could be a simple supply issue - if orders for the solid colours are much higher than for splatter they will be a lower priority.

All guesswork rather than solid fact, but this seems to be the case for all high demand pre-release stock.

It sucks that the date has been put back for the third time (it is now 21 days later than the original date given) but I think its just a case of if you want something dirt cheap you have to wait for it.



its the same with BP Mods pioneer insider, other places/companies in Hong Kong have it in stock to send out in 24hrs but nothing here at FT!!! Keep up FT cause ill have to go other places

THIS IS ENGLAND!!!

Shipping has slipped back yet again...

...now showing as the 15th of October.

As I've mentioned before, I reckon FT are being given the run around by their supplier, and I have my doubts as to whether they'll ever have this mod in stock.

Why don't you ask for a refund?

There's in stock at more sources.

A refund for what? I don't have one on order! But others here might.

Been waiting a month now.
What other sites this has been listed on? With international shipping?

I just got the information from FT that the mod is now in status "Discontinued", and they want to know which other item(s) I like to get instead.
Unbelievable... I ordered as soon as it was here, which was in July ! And now they tell me its not comming at all...
F**K... I am really disappointed, its not FT error, but the manufacturer... really, this should not be possible, as I ordered it and payed it. So in business terms there is a contract wich was broken now.Can FT maybe put some pressure on them, as I think I won't be the only one who pre-ordered it ?
-------------------------------------
FT mail:
Thank you for your waiting.

Sorry to inform you that the item https://www.fasttech.com/products/3008/10072739/9741153 has been discontinued now and we could not get it any more.

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

I kind of thought this would happen. It's not the first time Lost Vape gear has been advertised on a pre-order basis, only for FT to be unable to obtain any. And yet other Chinese-based retailers seem unaffected.

Strictly speaking, it's Lost Vape who should explain why they have an issue with FT, and not other similar vendors.

For me its the first time that I have this issue. Until now I always received what I ordered. And I am a customer for at least 3 years.
Got all Lost Vape products too (Triade, Thelema,...), so I can not support your claim.

But at least I got a refund of my payment yesterday and the mod is now 100€ on Amazon, so I will get it with for about 15€ more than I payed here (85€=100$).

Its still ok as other online-companies still ask for 180€.

So this deal is done... no bad feelings on my side. Shit happens sometimes...

Well bully for you, but it matters not whether you support it or otherwise.

It's still a fact that there have been a number of supply issues between FT and LV in the past, where the result has been exactly what you've experienced with the Hyperion. And the issue would appear to lie with LV.

People have expressed opinions (here) before as to why this happens - and most have probably hit the nail on the head in doing so.
