I got a roll of bad, unusable rubber from him, contacted him about it, and his response was that he is aware that many complain about it, and in a few words, that he is not responsible for the faulty product he sells, so I have to suck it up.
No problem, there are many vendors to spend my money on, and Wu Jim won't be one of them anymore.

Go to GZK. Or buy from Nathan. He will stand behind what he sells.

I would buy from Nathan, but for a single supersure pouch, I have to pay $10 shipping, so it is not worth it.

Something he obviously hasn't learned yet is that one unhappy customer with access to communities like this can blow a hole in your business like a cannon ball through foil. :mad:
Thanx for the word.
Exactly. If he doesnt make it right, after he reads this thread, then he is the only one that will lose.

PIAO YU (Aliexpress) has been reliable for all the purchases I made there, including "Precise" rubber. Strongly recommended.

"Mr Yang outdoors supplies store" (Aliexpress) is another good seller I can recommend. However, "YX Extraordinary Store" is mediocre (damaged or fractured wood grips, sights that don't fit in specific slots, etc.), albeit that they do have a huge selection of slingshots. Not so "extraordinary" :hmm: .

To some extent, it's a case of reading the customer feedback and service ratings for each Chinese online seller at Ali. I now stick to the aforementioned sellers when I do need something.

If you do receive a shoddy product, Aliexpress does have the "open a dispute" option: I have had 2 slingshots fully refunded without having to send them back to China. Just make sure you take a good photo of the problem and submit this with a detailed explanation. They handle the rest.
I had an item refunded from AliExpress too. AliExpress does take care of its customers. I just had the impression that I was buying from a reputable seller, that is all. We all do mistakes, I made one, I learned my lesson, which was a cheap one, thankfully, and now I know better.
I still have some hopes he will come through, to be honest. Not because of the value of the item, purely for ethical reasons, but I am not holding my breath.

It is confirmed, the guy is posting videos in his fb page but doesnt answer my messages. I expected as much, but it is sad when you get to realise another dishonest person is out there.

Thats a shame! I hope he decides to make it right.
Can't remember if you have tried GZK bands but I am liking the .66 and .62 samples he provided in my last 2 slingshot purchases from him. Both are nice and snappy. I just started using the .62 yesterday so I can't speak to longevity yet but the .66 is going strong after 300+ shots with no sign of wear.
I ordered 10m of gzk 0.66 this morning ????

I know a bunch of British shooters that buy a lot from Wu jim. I've gotten bad tubes from Dankung. But it's not worth the trouble of sending them back.

I once got a roll from a store in AliExpress that wasnt up to the advertised specs, and I got refunded without sending it back.
Look, I really don't care about the bands, its just that I cant trust that store anymore. If he just offered a solution, a discount even, I would probably just said that its ok.

Just stating that I had a bad roll and he replaced it . If you read what I wrote surely it was obvious what I was saying is not rocket science.
And i think you'll find I have been on here a while and done a lot more than 4 posts.
