    Just got a note back from Ray regarding the pixel strips which I plan on using for my leaping arches

    "very sorry to reply you late.

    i checked the factory, they said they do not want to make this 2801 dream strip not, they said it also has many quality problem, so they do not want to make it, sorry, please understand that. "


    Anyone got any suggestions on what to use instead? Worth looking at other suppliers over there?

    Do you have a link for the item to Ray's site? I may have an alternative for some of it.

    I'd do what I've done for the last year - just order and see what you get. Then report back here what you find.

    Plenty of others have done just that. Someone has to be the first.
