Is Physical Chess the only supplier?

    Any of you fencers out there have surely ordered through Physical Chess before so you know why I am asking this.  Is this the only option?  I like good communications and calling a company and talking to humans instead of leaving a message.  I like for emails to be sent if there is any problems.   I do not like to not be informed. Physical Chess has a great opportunity to be THE COMPANY at the cusp of something brand new and exciting but not if they continue with the same old customer service.

     For example. Physical Chess emailed me the 1st about glove size on my order. I was notified from Physical Chess through Amazon that my daggers had shipped the 3rd. It took a whole week for them to actually get to the USPS shipping facility in Jersey.  In short still in the same state as Physical Chess ... a week after I was told it shipped.  The problem is either with Physical Chess or the USPS and and I don't really care whose problem it is. It shouldn't be the customer's problem!  All I am saying is there are other suppliers with whom I have had no problems with communication or shipping.

    I feel your pain. There have been issues in the past but PC is not the only company that has issues regarding shipping and communication. With any supplier it is a crap shoot. One day service is stellar, the next day it is below par.

    Order arrived today........WITHOUT BODY CORDS.  Actually I have ordered from many and it isn't ever like this for me.

    And also although the order clearly states and is marked left handed I was sent two right handed daggers.  So they managed to get the gloves correct.  One out of three on a $200 dollar order.

    Update: 14 days and repeated emails later I finally got a return call from Physical Chess. All we want is a source of clear communication when orders go wrong.  There was an apology and a promise to get the correct stuff by
    the 18th. I so hope they come through I want them to succeed.
