Mine is out for delivery. It's funny that after a 5 day delay, my economy shipping is coming in via next day air.
i'll count my delay from the 2nd as I assume no one was around the office/warehouse on the 1st. mine should arrive today and was also upgraded.

I received mine yesterday (one platinum, one black) , not sure on how I like it. The look of it just does not suit my eye, guess I just prefer more of a mallet shape not a mega blade. I'll wait to see which one, if any, my dad would prefer then see if any of my local buddies would want the other before moving on to trading it in. Oh well, the search for the holy grail continues.
As far as my purchase experience, I'm not going to complain. I placed my order on 12/31, and was shipped on 1/3. This was only the 2nd business day after a holiday weekend so I don't fault RBG on the handling time. The west coast storms certainly delayed the package, but that is out of RBG or UPS control. It is unfortunate all orders were not fulfilled, but you can't expect a company to lose a bunch of money just to satisfy bulk orders made solely for the purpose of capitalizing on what was clearly a pricing error. While I do dislike many of the pricing tactics RBG uses (Lamkin UTx grip with RBG Price of $24/grip on 75% clearance for $6), I still think they are a great company to deal with.
I've only had positive experiences with RBG prior to this order. this one was a little frustrating due to the inconsistency of order fulfillment, shipping and delays, but considering the circumstances, I wasn't upset, just disappointed, thinking I wasn't going to get the putter (especially at that price) and the long delay. had they cancelled my order I wouldn't have been upset as I can understand an error. as it's on its way to me now, they certainly have outdone themselves, imo, by upgrading me to next day air - on something they might be losing money on to get the putter to me quickly.
can't wait to try it out!
