    First off, I will say the build quality of this thing vs my old £70 Argos special is amazing.

    But its all been ruined by one thing....

    The chair is so damn low I might as well sit on the bloody floor!

    41cm (16.142 freedom units) from the floor in its highest setting for the gas lift. Got to be a joke right?

    The specs say it should be 48cm.. Better. I could live with 48.

    How did that get past QC? Anyone here got this chair? I see they did 2 version of this thing. A 2018 version and a who knows what year version. I have the 2018 version according to the model number on the box.

    /rant I guess.

    Freemans most helpful post was comparing a gaming chair to a baby seat.

    Anyway,

    I have used the gas lift from my old chair for now but it is faulty and slowly sinks down.

    I have contacted Corsair about it.

    From what I can tell, they have given me the gas lift designed for the pre 2018 version of the chair which is lower in height than the 2018 version. Trying to get rid of old gas lift stock they have maybe?

    Who knows.

    That's actually a good idea.
    Hard to imagine shipping cost to sell it.

    Maybe there's a way to disassemble it and make it higher.

    Cut it in half and TIG weld it higher. XD.
    I think it was TIG welding for aluminium.
