Well my experience is this: I ordered Carbon Fiber eyelids from a dealer that Seibon told me to go to, called the shop, ordered them and paid for them, they told me they'd be in within 5 days, I called them 2 days after they were supposed to be in and they called Seibon to find out what happened with that order and they told him that they are on backorder til May now because some guy in NY bought 10 pairs of eyelids. JERK! LOL
My other experience is that of the ecelica store. I ordered my Carbon Fiber license backing from isaac back in early March and I still haven't received it, and didn't receive the tracking number as he had promised in his PM, so I'm assuming that the place he normally gets them from was out of stock and he's trying to get one. Who knows.
So, those are my 2 recent experiences with Carbon Fiber shortage
One thing though: If you DO decide to go with eBay for Carbon Fiber, be extremely careful who you buy your products from. The less there is of it, the higher the price will be. Sooo, make sure you're gettin' the "real" stuff and not fake Carbon Fiber that people are marking up the wazoo for. Just my 2 cents
