    Default My New ACME 1847 - UPS what did you do to it!

    Just had the UPS truck stop and drop off my new ACME 1847 Prop and Prop Puller. I'm leaving on vacation this weekend with the boat and I was just stoked to try it out, but as I opened up the Box this is what I found:
    It only took 12 days to get it here too....

    You can see in the first picture how the blades have cut into the shipping box and the bent blade went through two pieces of cardboard! Those idiots must have dropped it from a pretty good height. Needless to say I am Dpressed

    Ya, I have great faith the prop will be replaced, but I'm leaving on vacation on Saturday... I was really hoping to be using my new prop. - oh well the stock OJ has taken me this far!
    In the grande scheme of things I guess there have been greater crimes against humanity... but why me, why always me......

    Major bummer Grant - maybe have them priority ship the replacement to the nearest UPS location to your vacation spot?

    You're not alone bud - I had a Kicker amp show up this spring on a UPS delivery that had holes almost big enough to put my hand through in the shipping box, through the retail box, and clear into the foam padding. Looked like they tried to scoop the damn thing up with a forklift or something...

    Thanks Berg, Nettle props are shipping out a new one today, can't say enough about JT and the crew at Nettle, they bend over backwards to make things right! Like my Grandmother always said - "it will all work out, it always does"...

    Now if it will just stop raining...

    I just got my new 1847 and put it on last night. I ordered it on Sunday night and JT had it to me on the following Wed. Great service! Lucky for me UPS did not throw mine around. I can't wait to try this thing out!
