@Ianc13 I’m glad you posted this, as I was going to say the same thing about Darren (Jetz), but didn’t want to, as he DID ship me flavors to review, BUT, the fact remains that if indeed, the DIY/Vaping Community is but a SMALL part of their (FLAVRZ) business, and I believe they/we are, then he’s REALLY making a “Good Showing” here, and I hope that people are noticing that.
When he started posting some of his FLAVRZ recipes, I noticed there was a fair amount of “Blow Back” about the brand, and an almost assumption that they were rebottled/re-branded. Right out of the gate. This was WELL before he contacted me for any reviews. He clearly, and articulately made his case, explained what (and even HOW) the did what they did, and there was STILL apprehension. Maybe that’s good, I mean, why not.
He contacted me regarding the reviews, and since I HAD seen the comments on his recipes, I felt, this was the PERFECT TIME to see what was what, and I felt like I needed to be the guy TO do it. Very shortly after I started reviewing the FLAVRZ flavors, I knew they were NOT rebottled/re-branded. Some were GREAT, some were good, and some were so so, and I tried to report my findings as such.
I’ve watched how patient, and active he’s been, trying to help explain, and RE-explain their brand, take some hits for the flavors not being super strong, etc., and he just still keeps coming back, and offering up help, recipes, and more.
The moral of MY story is, I watch closely when people contact MFG’s, especially with questions, or problems, and I watch how they are answered, or handled, and that says a lot. I think for many reasons just like this, when I’m asked if I would BUY flavors from @Jetz, even IF they aren’t the strongest, or shipping from around the world, that I say, “Yes, I would”.
I wish MORE vendors/MFG’s did that. I’m currently testing their Shortbread, and it’s got some damned buttery GOODNESS going on, so let me stop this rant, and get my ass back over to the FLAVR review thread, and keep knocking them down.
