Haven't been around much lately but checked in the other day to see what the TB-21 was selling for(I just bought a GT2531). Saw the listing for the TH300, searched around a little and decided it was exactly what I needed for my 3541XLS. Great idea, kudos to Markins, JRP and whoever else had input into the design! My only complaint on the big Gitzo was the bulkiness, this fixes it in spades. Gotta have one RIGHT NOW!
Hi, my name's Bill and I'm an impulse buyer.... As I suspect most of you reading this are as well.
So I went back to the PPS page, scrolled down only to find that the "expected arrival" as indicated by the red square is 14-21 days. Bummer! No way I can wait three weeks, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread!
So I go check the Markins USA website, they have them in stock. Ordered one, checked out, got an order confirmation immediately and a shipping notice later the same day.
So my question is "Whassup wid dis?" If we(Nikonians) are so tight with Markins why is there a 3-week wait for an item they have in stock? I could drive from Vancouver to Louisiana quite a few times in three weeks, how does the PPS get shipments, Pony Express?
I'm sad to say this only reinforces previous experiences I've had with the PPS, I've even called for a stock check only to find I'm back-ordered. Not a good way to do business....
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting the TH-300, according to UPS it'll be here in Georgia having traveled all the way from Vancouver in 6 business days. I can live with that versus three weeks plus from Louisiana.

we agree with you.
Based on cashflow, our shipping schedule is for a shipment every three to four weeks.
Some items sale like pancakes and if you want to order one when we just sold the last one you need to wait until the next shipment.
However if you contact the shop, maybe the wait is much shorter if a shipment is in transit.
The PhotoProShop was created as a service to members; members purchases at the PhotoProShop help sustain the growth of the community. Your purchases elsewhere don't accomplish that.
We are looking for a solution because only if we increase our sales we can make larger orders and maintain a larger stock volume, and viceversa, making members happier.
Thank you for your feedback.
Have a great time :-)
