Smile Well, I've been hit and I am working hard to recover my balance. This admission might be the kiss of death for my company but I feel I owe it to my customers to remain honest and completely above board. My company has been the victim of a scam perpetuated by one of my formally trusted component suppliers; after finding that I place regular order to them, they have been feeding me substandard components in a effort to squeeze a little extra profit out of me. These parts easily pass my quality testing befor I ship but they soon die after a period of regular use. So, what does this mean? Well, it means I am unable to restock 6th Scent or OHM until further notice while I work on redesign. My other products are not effected by this.

I hope that those of you who have shown appreciation of my approach to mentalism will stay tuned and trust that I will overcome this blow.

All the best,

Christopher Taylor

I'm very sorry to read this, and that something like is has happened to you.
I'm also very proud to do business with someone as upfront and honest as you.

I've been considering an Ohm purchase, and I'm sorry to hear of this. But I applaud your forthrightness. This development would certainly not prevent me from ordering Ohm if/when the redesigned version becomes available.
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

So sorry to hear this. Christopher.

But it is not the "kiss of death," at all!
You are a trusted and well respected developer and member of this community.
If anything, the way you are handling this set-back, reinforces your extraordinarily positive reputation.

I also consider you a friend.
In that regard, any small thing that I can do to help, I would be happy to do.

I've had the same thing happen to me in my business and it's very honest of you to speak up about it. Keeping quiet would have been so easy, and the fact that you didn't is a credit to your business practices. If I'm going to deal with someone then that's the kind of person I want to be dealing with.

best,
Sean

Thank you, each and every one who has offered encouragement over this. As I mentioned in the OHM thread, I will work with everyone who has pone of the faulty units on an individual basis. I am doing further testing the units I still have on hand as I there are sure to find a few "cherries" among them which I will use to replace any individual problem units that are reported to me.

Oh no, this really is upsetting as I have dealt with you (Christopher) in the past with such pleasant experiences. It makes me wonder why this happens to the good guys but I guess its just the way things go sometimes. Keep your head up Christopher and I really hope you get things cleared up sooner rather then later.

All the best,

I hope you feel the support of the community behind you.

I placed my order for Ohm a week ago and was disappointed to hear this but CT gets applauded for his honesty.I admired his forthrightness.I would rather wait than received a below quality prop.Maybe Ohm V2.0 will emerged?

As mentioned, this apparently does not effect everyone and I am happy not only for Christopher's great customer service but also that I haven't experienced any problems with my set.

Towledge, Will this inevitably affect your set, however?

My OHM is fine, too. I don't anticipate any problems in the future, either.

This is a great trick, BTW. So many possibilities! And, Christopher has been very helpful in answering a few questions I had.

Not everyone will be affected according to Christopher, however I feel very confident that should a problem arise he will be more than happy to rectify it.
