I was leaning towards a quick light. Anyone got any other suggestions! Pros, cons, nakid woman wrapped in fiber optic whips, you know the normal wildcat forum stuff.
Socal I agree with you but this scenario pops into my head. You have been out riding tearing it up and you have to take a piss like no other. You can't leave your (insert lighting source here) on and stay close to your ride. So you turn the lights off and pull it out knowing that it would take someone really stupid to hit your toy since your whip is on!
Disclaimer: Yes people that stupid do exist the only thing you can do to be safe is shoot them in the head. They are zombies.
I'm not normally one to get on here and talk trash about people's products, I'm usually telling everyone how cool they are, in this case over $200 per whip. Well, after 6 years and about $1,000 in whips from Quicklight plus referring and telling people how great they are, I finally got screwed one last time. Last year, Jeremy the owner of Quicklight took a pole back because it broke at the base, not from rolling, just from well...duning. He said if I wanted to pay for an upgraded whip pole that he would hook me up. So, of course I did, paid him the $35 bucks and he gave me the upgraded whip and told me to "break it". I said, ok.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I do not thrash my stuff nor have I ever been on my lid (currently knocking on wood). At the end of the season another (upgraded) whip broke at the base. I emailed Jeremy and he told me that he would take care of me. I told him that I would just save cash on shipping them to him and walk them into the SSSS.
I approached Quicklight's booth, Jeremy breaks out the calculator and starts adding up the options for me. Now, I have dual whips and only one broke, so I was prepared to buy another pole to match the one that was broken since I like things to match. He wanted to charge me $35 for the broken pole rebuild which he was not doing at the show, and another $20 to send it back to me. Then, the one he fixed for me last year was shorter now so he wanted to charge me another $120 for that one.
Standing next to me is my good friend Chris who has been getting Tribal Whips exchanged with no questions asked every year. These whips have stopped working, but never break and are half the cost of a Quicklight.
My complaint is don't tell people that your product is unbreakable, tell your customers to go break it, then try to charge them for your lack of engineering. Most people are going to laugh at me for paying so much for a stupid whip, I'm with you now. I do however believe in paying for quality in a product, I guess I've just lost faith in this one.
Just my .02
That would be pretty cool! Run an American flag, and light it up at night!I have seen a sandrail that installed 1 of his HIDs to point straight up into the air. Talk about a lighted whip! You could literally see where he was dining all the way from camp. It is a very cool idea at night. Never have trouble with getting separated..................
Weird.. if you break a quick light that you bought from us we just hand you a new one, no questions asked.. then quick light replaces them for us.... never had any problems with a warranty and out of 384 whips sold in the last 2 years, we have maybe replaced 10 whips. but its no questions.. bring it and i hand you a new one.
