Hello, I’ve recently purchased an OSP Virtuoso OFF- in flared from OSP’s ecommerce website https://tabletennis-pingpong.equipment/ and my payment has gone through sucessfully via PayPal. One problem is that one of their alternate websites is down http://ospblades.com/ and this has led me to become worried and extremely sceptical of the legitimacy of their business in 2019. I know there have been reviews on their Facebook page which seems to indicate successful deliveries but I can’t help but worry whether or not I’m getting scammed.

One other fellow has posted a negative review on their Facebook page about 10 hours ago saying they were scammers because his Fedex shipment was cancelled. Now, I’ve reached out to them through their email address to ask what’s going on but it may be a while before I get a reply. I just wanted to ask what this forum thinks of OSP and of other people’s experiences with them.

Should I just be patient and wait for a response? Or should I dispute my transaction on PayPal to get my money back? Appreciate any replies.

They make blades pretty much by hand and are very much legit.  But they are really small, so I'm not sure what issues they might be having.

I think there is plenty of time to do a Paypal dispute... give them a chance to respond first..I've never heard of anyone having issues with them...I've always held them in high regard.
BTW Both sites work fine for me at the moment.

Both http://ospblades.com/ and https://tabletennis-pingpong.equipment/ seem to be alive and kicking. This and other online TT forums are chockful of people delighted with OSP equipment. And you choose to make much ado about nothing over a single negative review on Facebook? wtf

This is just me being really sceptical, especially since I live in Australia. I just don’t want to see my hard earned cash just disappear halfway across the world. I’m not trying to offend anyone at all.

I bought one Virtuoso- years ago, and months ago I bought another two blades with smaller size, one Virtuoso- and one Virtuoso CRWI, and they made me exactly the same weight for both blades and I am very happy with it.
Then I made another inquiry for one Virtuoso CRW. I sent several emails but got no reply, and I do not know what happened to my messages. So I decided to sent a message through the private messenger in this forum, and I got immediate reply. I have placed the order and they have started to make it. We are communicating nicely with the private messengers, and I think my blade will be finished soon.
I would suggest you to send a PM to Mr. Palatinus, and I believe you will get a response.

Their weak point is the response to our emails....Otherwise they are PROFESSIONALS and they make super quality blades! I was always thinking if some of our emails(customers) go to unwanted messages in their outlook so we dont get a really quick response.

I bought blade in April. No issues with communication, fast reply. Top quality blade received. This thread and its title might look unfair to their business so I'll use it to say thanks again to OSP team for making excellent blades.
