    Class action suit against VIGIL

    Thanks guys, I know what you mean and Im glad I have some understanding out there, your right about being persistant and I will. I did buy from a retailer and I'll call him today. Last time I asked about it, it didnt seem like anything was going to happen anytime soon.

    Class action suit against VIGIL

    Hi all Im one of many Im sure who has had there VIGIL sent back due to a bad cutter and also there was something else wrong with it( failed to stay on with a good bat) I contacted them by phone and E-amil. I will admit it was late this week and im giving them more time to get back to me. I have not had a Vigil all season and I have had NOOOOOOOOOOO word or apology of any sort. Dont get me wrong I LOVE spending money I dont have on a piece of equipment that doesnt work to Not save my life. But enough is enough. Are there others who are fed up? Lets start a class action law suit to get our money back, give them some real bad press until OUR problem is fixed. MY GOAL is to either have a working AAD by beg. of next season or my full refund to go buy one that I can rely on send me PMs or just respond Thanks all, if anyone has any info that will help i'd appreciate it
