I just realized that I still haven't received mine and was wondering if anyone here had them shipped yet.

I ordered them the first day they were available.

I got a Wii after the whole strap recall. How do you get a new one? Not like I need one (it works fine for me), but what's the process?

Go to Nintendo.com and register your Wii. It extends the warranty by 90 days and there is a link where you can order more straps.

You go to the nintendo site and put in your name, address etc + your wii's serial number and the number of replacement straps you require. I submitted a request for replacement straps on christmas eve, I think. I will post when I get them.

I have. I ordered 1 and they sent me 4 :D

Since you have the new ones, are they much stronger at all?
All sending you four mind not be a good thing. :eek:

I ordered them the 1st day I believe... Soon as I saw that they were sending out replacements. Got the confirmation on the 21st and shipping notice on the 22nd. They arrived yesterday, the 26th.

I have the old one on my first wiimote and new straps on my new remotes. I have no idea about the strength of either, but the new ones are visibly thicker.

They are significantly thicker than the older one so they should be a lot stronger.

I got the 2 replacement straps I ordered yesterday I believe. I only used one because I tried using my DS wriststrap one day, and I prefer the fastener on that one better. The thickness of the DS strap and the new Wii strap is about the same from just looking at it as well.

I finally got mine. I ordered 4 but got 3.

Then again I only have 2 wiimotes :p

They definitely feel a lot beefier than the old straps. I'm trying to find some sort of creative use for the old straps.

I received mine on Tuesday this week.. Ordered them when they started offering them I believe. I thought I only got 3 when I ordered 4 but when I looked at the package I noticed the 4th one was stuck to the top on the sticky stuff..

and I do have 4 controllers so I didn't order any straps I didn't need :p

Mine showed up in the mail yesterday, but I haven't been able to check them out because I'm away at school at the moment, and the straps got sent to my parents' house. But I ordered them when the recall became available and they showed up pretty quickly, so I'm sure everyone who is still waiting will see theirs very soon.
