GM 909 Prodirect cock up
« on: September 04, 2018, 06:48:07 PM »

I've been eyeing up a GM Neon since i picked up @jamesisapayne Signature at the Kilve vs Custom Bats game back in July time. Took the risk and picked up a 909 in the PDC end of season sale for 180 asked for a medium weight 2.10-2.12 but received a 2.8 shall. My last experience of trying to exchange something with PD was painful (Was a while ago and was football boots) shall i just return and order again or go through the painful exchange process..

I did the same but ordered light - got this one which is 2:9.2, which I can live with (seems to ping well)

I might consider a swap though if yours pings also?

Superb bats the GM Neon, I have 2 and just picked a 3rd up, just in case they discontinue that range for next season. Longest middle of any bat Ive owned and the balance is superb.

PDC customer service has been great before but seems like it has really gone down of late.

Also, does anyone know if VAT is to be charged for USA orders? In the past, VAT was removed for USA orders but recently PDC is not doing that. Has any law changed recently that PDC did this change. I contacted PDC several times on this but no response.

I too felt the same. They used to respond within a day maximum until last year. But now it takes weeks to get a response and sometimes they do not respond at all.

I had sent a query sometime back regarding exemption of UK VAT on shipments sent abroad. They responded that VAT will not be charged or refunded in case it gets charged during checkout. But not sure if they are going the Sports Direct way now.

That's utter tripe. Should ask them which legislation this refers to...
