I've finally gotten time to post a couple of pictures and an update on the delay on the delivery of my new Tribute Chairs. For whatever reason, the original shipipng company got as far as Dallas, TX with the chairs. It was determined from there that they had to be assigned to a different shipping company to get to our town. I have to say Roman did do as much as he could in tracking down the shipment and pushing them to get it delivered. However with the holiday fast approaching i'm sure the shipping companines were bey0nd busy. So as it stood on Friday morning the chairs had made it all the way to Odessa which is about 90 miles from me and they would be delivered next Thursday the 27th. I inquired about me picking up the chairs myself and they allowed me too as long as I made it before 5 PM. So needless to say I took off work at lunch and away I went!
The boxes were in really good shape still. Once in the garage it probably only took me an hour or so by myself to get them all put together.
I was very pleased when sitting in these seats for the very first time. My biggest question about these was a question a few other people had on the manual head recline. I was torn between chosing between the Tributes and the Escapes. After some input from my wife, I decided on the Tributes. They seemed to have a smoother cushion line with more support. I'm about 6'5" and my feet do hang off but i don't notice it very much. When i'm sitting in the chairs straight up the top of the chair is right at the base of my head. When i recline it's a perfect fit and the manual head support really works well. I was worried the weight of my head would not allow the adjustment to stay in place, however I haven't noticed any issues. Time will tell on if this will be an issue in the future.
Again I want to give props to Roman for doing what he could with the shipping company. He was very professional and friendly throughout the whole process. I wanted to get the chairs before XMAS and with them being stuck 90 miles away for a week, I opted to go get them and after sitting in them I'm really glad I did.
