Pi$$es you off when stores hold no stock. It's like paying double just for the sake of a middle-man who offers poor service.

Bell them and check before ordering. I do this all the time now as most stockist are no longer stockists at all. Just another profiteer with a posh front-end.

:Hi All, recommend" Gerrysfishing " for really good service. Ordered a penn rod and reel on a Sunday evening, in my hot little hands in Aberdeen before lunch on the Tuesday. Same scenario a couple of weeks later with a floatation suit.:clap3:

Unfortunately drop-shopping is a growing industry, particularly on purely on-line sites. I ordered a new flashgun last week from a UK website, it was only when my order had been processed and the money debited from my account, that I discovered the unit was in stock in France. If I hadn't paid for expedited delivery, it would have taken a week to arrive.

What's wrong with a red one? Or are you a tackle tart and want to "look good" on the beach? If it keeps the wind and rain out, who gives a ff what colour it is! :uhuh:

sorry to hijack the post...........

I odered an abu sports mag at the start of October with one 'online' company!!

was fobbed off again and again by the company - was told there were none in stock - was patient (too patient maybe!?!?!?) and waited ad waited for the reel to come in stock - never turned up!

I got fed up of being fed bull***t and cancelled order a month ago and am still waiting for the refund that was agreed!!! Emailed them last week to enquire where refund was - haven't had a reply yet!

I find it hard to believe that one of the biggest online mail order compnies have not had one of the most popular reels in the UK in stock for nearly 6 months!!!

Sorry to moan - any suggestions on how to get my cash back!!!

Dan it helps to name and shame this shop,other members will then avoid it and not make same mistake you dont have to name the shop, just give the area (town) we all know most shops as to wait from October is takeing the proverbal
mail them and say they have seven days to return your money,failing that it`s a County Court summons,bet you have your money back next day,AND DONT BE SHY THEY TOOK YOUR MONEY == PAT
