My results have been delayed twice and are now expected 04/17/2017-05/01/2017.
According to information here "as of April 5, 2017, the following tests have delays in normal turnaround times: --- YDNA 7 to 9 weeks".
This is obviously incorrect. It's now more than 9 weeks since my kit was received by lab and on earliest expected date (17 April) 10 weeks will have passed...
Received my results on Friday 14th. That's a few days ahead of the expected time, so even though the results were delayed twice it suddenly feels like they were early.

You're very lucky.
Still no results from my SNP pack batched on 04/04.
3 weeks and 3 days now...

That's fast! I'm still waiting for Y67 for a kit in batch 732 (batched 20 March, FF completed 18 April).

Yes, I've been really lucky until now. My R1b snp pack was batched on March 20, and I received results on April 4th, according to which my Y haplogroup is R-Z36, an alpine celtic haplogroup. Now I'm thinking of buying R-Z36 snp pack, in order to discover in what subclade of R-Z36 I am in. Let's see if my luck will persist.

If you can possibly afford it, save up for the Big-Y test. The R-Z36 pack can only test some SNPs which are currently recognised below Z36, so you might not get much new detail. The haplotree will keep getting updated but your position in the tree won't change unless you pay for a new SNP pack every couple of years. Big-Y, on the other hand, will also look for previously unknown mutations. If you match anyone in the database it can define new branches of the haplogroup, and your position in the tree will keep getting updated as more people take the Big-Y test.

I do admit that the Big-Y test is expensive, even if you wait for the sales. I was very lucky: I have cousins who are interested in DNA so we shared the cost of the Big-Y test for a representative of the family (whose Y67 and FF already confirmed that he's on the correct male line, so testing him was as good as testing myself).

I have just got my Big Y results in, a month early I might add, and it was money very well spent. I know it is not cheap, but go for it if you possibly can.

Cheers, Ade.

Finally received my SNP pack yesterday.
Almost 5 weeks since batched.
Not too bad again.
