Reply from SkatePro: Hi Robert,
Thank you for leaving your feedback on our website.
At the moment you did make the purchase with us, the items were available as pre-order since the supplier, unfortunately, didn't have them in stock yet. In your case, they have delayed it, unfortunately, twice. We are very sorry about this and it was definitely not something, that we would have thought of in the first place, otherwise you would be informed about that.
Due to the tight schedule, you did have, and one of the items, which was not available, we did offer you some discount for the inconvenience and told you that we would ship it out, without the stick so we could keep up with the tight delivery schedule for you. We did misunderstand each other. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
