Good product June 18, 2017
Reviewer: Michael McLaughlin from Edmond, OK United States  
The good:  The product is good and the representatives seem nice and helpful

The Bad:  Shipping is higher than any other place I have bought from.  My first order took over a month to ship and required a phone call.  The second order was  a week ago for a couple joints and I still have not received a shipping notification.  

I am happy with the products but not your shipping policies.
