      Does anyone have a suggested way to clean and polish the sphere. I been handling mine a lot and it has fingerprints tarnished on it. I would like to clean the and then polish.

      Backer 686: another month passed by and STILL NOTHING RECEIVED!!! Refund?

      I've written more than 3 times in an effort to contact the creator of this project to no avail. The Mega Copper and Mega Titanium that I received are BOTH SMALLER than the stated "Mega" size. Why did I pay more for "Mega" when in reality, I only received the next smaller size? As mentioned already, I tried to comment here, email the creator, all to no avail. Zero reply. Nothing whatsoever. Why, may I ask? My emails and messages are always polite, courteous. Kindly reply asap at this late juncture. Thank you in advance.

      Is there a way I can cancel my order & refund?

      OK.. I got a message that mine were sent in mid January but have received nothing yet.
      Tracking says they are in Chicago, apparently, and I'm in Australia.....
      Can you let me know what going on please.
      I'll be happy to take a refund at this stage if it's easier...

      i received smaller ones than the ones i ordered. i ordered the largest size, and received the next smaller size. i wrote messages but have received nothing in reply. it's been months and they would not acknowledge that i was sent the incorrect sizes. (i ordered one copper and one titanium) Why would i have paid extra for the largest size only to receive the next smaller size? This is unfair. It is not right to not reply to my various politely written email inquiries. Disappointed.

      Delivery was meant to be July 2016,
      but I have not received the spheres.
      Kindly check, much thanks.

      @Daniel Ebeck: and what about the Spheres themselves? How did they turn up?

    15. Daniel Ebeck on February 9

      Backer 1320. My Cu and Ti 4.6 spheres have arrived.

      I contacted Trance to find out my shipping info, due to an address change (because the damn things were so overdue!). Anyway, TM shipped on December 30th. January 2nd, it arrived in USPS Chicago, where it sat and waited until January 23rd. Jan 23rd it was checked in the the depot in Warsaw, Poland. January 25th it left the depot in London UK. Then it sat in HM Revenue and Customs for few days, where they decided it needed an import duty paying.

      Finally delivered Friday 3rd Feb.

      Communication sorely lacking from TM, and this isn't the first time. I ordered W & Mg cubes a while back and that went through the same tortuous process with USPS, with just as little feedback.

      Just wanted to let Community know, I have received my reward in perfect condition, but without hearing ANYTHING from Trance Metal.

      But everything is fine and correct. Finally I can end this urge of waiting.

    19. Stephen Watson on January 31

      so far, I've left my survey unfilled out. I'd like to see the matte v. polished options and hear more about them. I don't have the information (readily available, anyway) to help me make a decision.

    20. Richard Boulanger on January 30

      Well, I got my copper one, but the titanium one is still MIA. The copper is gorgeous. Can't wait to see the titanium one.

      Backer #419. Got my Spheres. 4.6cm Matte Copper and two 4.6xm Polished Titanium (along with matching 2.0cm Spheres, all Polished).

      I messaged Trance-Metal a couple of weeks ago and they replied with a Tracking number. It took the package about two weeks to arrive, about a week of it was local customs delay. 10 out of 10 in this department.

      The Spheres are wonderful. All of them. 10 out of 10 as far as I'm concerned.

      The packaging was superb. They seems to have learned from their past experience with Forge Solid cubes. 10 out of 10 here as well.

      The only 'problem' (since one has to complain about something... ;-) ) is the fact that the small Spheres have no O-rings to support them, but I went down to the hardware store and bought a few 3/8th rubber O-rings that fit perfectly.

      The only thing that truly can be improved, next time around - is the communication. Rudy - you really provide magnificent products. The finishing on the Spheres is simply amazing. The Titanium one shines like a mirror and is the most round object I have ever seen. If you provide a little better communication - you'll run the perfect KS project. Delays are to be expected, especially when you run a project 10 times bigger then expected. A little communication and transparency will come a long way.

      overall - I'm a very pleased backer.

      Thanks a lot, Rudy!

      @Ken Lunde... My lable shows the same part numbers yours. I sent a PM as well yesterday and they responded the same as to you. Hopefully this was just a case of "send them what we've got and we'll send the last one when it's ready". It IS comforting to know that someone else with the same pledge and delivery date has the same issue.

    28. Missing avatar

      Ken Lunde on January 18

      @Aiden — I made the same pledge, and am also missing the same sphere. (I received five spheres yesterday.) My shipping label has "CU46P-F, CU598P-F, CU80P-F, TI46P-F, TI598P-F" and the digit 5 printed on it, which suggests that TI80P-F (the big titanium sphere) was not included. Does your shipping label specify the same? Perhaps they temporarily ran out. I sent a message to the project creator, and they are checking with the fulfillment center.

      Keep in mind that this project is 100x oversubscribed. It is literally one-hundred times bigger than the creator envisioned. The creator had to make a choice: compromise the product or run late. I think he made the right choice to be late.

      Just received my Mega combo pack. Everything looks terrific, except I'm missing the big Titanium sphere. Hopefully that can be straightened out.

      For those of you who do not have your items yet, patience does seem to pay off, because the Creator IS shipping these things.

      Backer 2395. Received 2x kilo (Cu and Ti). Look beautiful as-is (Cu (matte) and Ti (polished)). But, both were supposed to be matte finish (instead of the mixed set that was received). Hope there will be a process to exchange. Thanks

      Yes, I have received all three of my orders. And I agree the spheres are awesome, but..two of my orders came incomplete that I had up my pledge for. I have not receive any cases for two of my orders. I expect full complete orders for items already fund for. Disappointed......

      Backer #442. Still nothing, moving in 3 weeks. Looking bleak.

      Backer #983, just received mine in the mail today. My package was "ONE PERFECT TITANIUM SPHERE 5.98 CM PLUS MATCHING COPPER KILO". Copper is Matte and is in perfect condition.

      Both are flawless and as advertised. Well worth the wait as others have said imo!

      Kirby M on January 9

      I bought in on the early side -- backer 1153 -- and still haven't received anything. People who pledged later in the process have already received their spheres. I'm assuming it just isn't going to happen and have reported this campaign to Kickstarter. I'd like a refund please.

      Received my copper and titanium 46mm spheres a few days ago. Titanium looks great. Copper has quite a few marks on it observed right as I cut the bag open. Maybe it's spots of oxidation before it was vacuum sealed...Idk...but I'm not very happy about it.
      One thing I can say is these 'polishing cloths' are total crap, DO NOT use them as they will scratch the spheres horribly. Due to the spots I was seeing I started to use it on the copper one in one spot and it scratched the crap out of it.

      Matted mega copper orb came yesterday. It's flawless and of extreme quality... The only issue with this process has been the lack of communication from Trance. Guys, your product and presentation is dope. You don't have anything to hide. Communicate better next time, and everyone will be happy!

      Under my wife's Kickstarter, we ordered two smaller orbs (1K, I believe). Still waiting on those, but I was early bird on the mega and just extended early bird on the smaller ones (even though we ordered those a week or so before we ordered the mega), so I think that's the reason for the relative delay. Super excited to see what the smaller ones are like.
