  • Buying Online

    Having just spent the last 25 years cycling and using online dealers for most of my equipment and clothing the longest you normaly waited was 3 days most 1-2 days for items to turn up.
    Now returned to angling with needing everything it has been a nightmare getting dealers to supply the basics
    Almost one month for a 4 tube rod holdall and net set, nothing fancy major make.Still not arrived.
    A few basic items from another dealer into 2 weeks now.
    A rod and reel set that took over 2 weeks to arrive, when I queried non arrival after 5 days was told its 10 days for delivery, didnt you get an email and why do you want them that quick. err I want to go fishing maybe
    Still no rod licence nearly 3 weeks now.
    Come on dealers if you cannot supply the items dont advertize them so at least it gives me a chance to look elsewhere
    One exception was Talk Angling got the response email almost immediatly, cannot say that for Essex Fishing Forum applied 3 days ago and nowt so far.

    You're right mate, it's a joke! I sell quite a few things and I always send as soon as I receive payment, sometimes before!

      Stick to the reputable dealers.
      Harrison tackle are superb, as are Nathans of Derby.

        Must be something in the name! All Nathans' are good blokes! I normally use Matchmen Supplies, free delivery and normally come within a week unless something's out of stock.

          I've just bought a reel online from Mullarkeys. Ordered it Wednesday, they called me wed night and left a mssge to call back - called back thursday and corrected the details I had got wrong online! - got the reel today.

          Now that's what I call service.

              Bennetts are pretty good with stuff they have in, but they seem to have a problem with some Middy stuff. I've twice cancelled orders for Middy gear because after 2 weeks I was fed up of waiting.

              Climax Tackle of Dronfield are excellent.

                I try not to use online stores, as have had a few problems where deliveries have taken so long to come through. Last time I tried was with Wickford angling. Never again after 4 weeks I phoned up and cancelled my order 2 weeks after that the order turned up it was a bump bar I had already bought one as I had a bad back. They had taken the money off my credit card when they sent it out after the order was cancelled. I sent it back and the money was put back on the credit card but the postage I had to spend to get it to them was not, hassled them for a few weeks and no joy eventually gave up.
                On the positive side I have had to get my pole repaired by Essells, and was very impressed by speed of turn around, quality of repair and communication on what was going on. Seems some people are good at there jobs and others don’t care.

                  Too many amateurs in the industry. Like the guys say, stick with the top players and leave the others well alone.
