Why does everyone hate Joeken? I ordered a receiver from them about two months ago and got it with no problem. I ordered another on Wed. and got the tracking number on Fri. It left Flagstaff on its way here this afternoon. They have been nothing but nice to me. I'll more than likely order from them again.

What are you talking about?

Everybody here loves Joken.

I agree, I ordered three Ewbanks Gen 2 recievers from them on a group buy. They were shipped promptly and I am very happy with them. No problems what so ever????

Unfortunately that's how it starts out. A buddy and I both had good luck for a few months and then it was like hitting a brick wall. Your turn will come, just wait. Better yet, don't.

Well good for you guys, I got screwed the first time(and the last time) I did business with them. They had every opportunity to fix the problem but chose to ignore it instead ...

If you like doing business with them, then i recomend doing business with Spezuhl Wepunz also. There also might be a guy named Gary in Kansas looking to build your nice pristine Krinkov or Tantal kit for you.

Like Lambs to the Slaughter...

Sit back open a beer and watch it happen.

I also have heard good things about the Ewbanks receiver, and I have actually had the opportunity to look one over and it looked pretty good. But If I ever wanted one, I would order it from Scott at DPH Arms because I know that his customer service record is spotless and he is one hell of a guy to deal with.

It left flagstaff................


You were dealing with Eubank and not JoeKen if it was mailed directly from Flag. Thats why it probably shipped on time and went to the correct address.

Its because its not their receiver. A guy up in Flagstaff makes it.

Well who ever makes them does a good job and sends it quickly.

Their customer service had improved 1000% when Andrew started working there, but most of the problems were prior to his employment. I considered giving them another try, but with the latest issue with a customer's credit card number being stolen from them, no-way-jose. Simply, Joeken doesn't have a good track record with credit cards.
