    Safeglo whip review. BS company

    I just wanted to share my experience with safeglo whips. When I started putting my X3 together I selected the 4' white LED safeglo whips mainly due to the pushbutton quick release mounts. The first ride out I noticed they were flickering. I contacted safeglo and they told me they revised the design and now transfer 12vdc thru a wire and plug and to send them back for warranty. I packaged them up and sent them in, they called when they received them so I thought everything was going smooth. They called Friday and said everything was done and asked me for a credit card for the repairs. I asked why they are charging me for repairs on a design flaw and was told they had to replace a couple LEDs and one of the QDs was clicking so they replace that as well. I said the whips have no more than 50 miles and all should be covered under warranty but whatever. I'm prepping for a trip and need them back.
    So in all, I'm $400 into whips/shipping, shipping to safeglo, repairs/shipping back to me and they have 50 miles. I hope I get more than 50 miles this time around. Lol
    Now there's 2 whip manufactures I'll never buy from again.

    Ouch! Did you purchase the whip more than 6 months ago? Their warranty is only 6 months from date of purchase, per the website.

    I ran a Safeglo whip for 4 years with no issue on my XP1000. I currently run Whiptech on my X3 and have no complaints. It comes with a remote to turn it off and on and so you can change the light colors and pattern.

    Thanks for the quote Tim - "Have a unicorny, rainbowey day!"

    I just cant understand why so many whip companies have issues with whips.

    I have had several different brands and they all seem to have issues in a relatively short time.

    I don't blame you for being upset and expecting they would make it right.

    Have a Delightful, Rainbowey, Unicorny day.

    Love Tim

    Me and My RC , whats good enough for other folk ain't good enough for me.

    Yeah, it's likely been more than 6 months so that's likely the issue with the payment and I'm fine with that. I'm more upset that they needed LEDs and a QD replaced in the limited use they've seen plus the 3 shipping charges to get them, send them and receive them. They would make a great daytime whip due to the slick mounting design I guess. Lol

    No reason to trash them on here because they do have excellent warranty and customer service, just lousy product. I'll PM ya.

    Other company goes out of their way to take care of you but it's like the AutoZone ford starter with the lifetime warranty... Eventually you get sick of replacing your starter. Lol

    I have 2 - 20 inch & 2 - 36 inch for my car and also 2 boat whips for the boat they all work great

    I had to warranty one 36inch whip due to hitting a tree branch @ 45 mph it also tweaked the mount!
    Sent it in and got it back and now they work AWESOME!

    The 20 inch stubbies work perfect for the Havasu trees branches as they slide right underneath!

    Glad you are having good luck with yours. Are they the push button with billet quick release that uses the RCA connector to supply power or are they the revised version with a power wore you plug in?

    RCA plug but the whip has a heavy duty magnet that holds it in the sleeve.

    That's a cool design, magnetic base seems like a good idea
