These guys are only a few miles down the road from me. I try to stop in the shop pretty regularly to see if they have what I may be looking for at the time. Great guys to deal with but like most smaller, local shops, inventory can be problematic.

Surprised All Tackle wasn’t mentioned here. They have been great for me. Also Capt Harry’s.

I picked up a TLD50 LRSA from them at an unbeatable price, was close to what you get one for from one of the Australian sellers, before they could not longer sell Shimano to the states.

Finally someone at TD picked up the phone today! I was so shocked to hear someone on the other end lol.

He could not guarantee when exactly they can ship out, but he said if everything is in stock they try to get it out in 2-3 days. I went through all the items I wanted on the phone with him to confirm its in stock at TD, he confirmed the system shows there is stock. He also confirmed they are still struggling from the system upgrade.

Placed the order online around an hour ago, but I did not get any email confirmation of my order details or a receipt. Thank god I decided to print my order confirmation which shows the order number, unfortunately there is no zip code in Dubai so I can't use the only tracker on the TD site. AND it does not show my order on my TD account lol.. Fingers crossed my order didn't get lost in the www.

I managed to purchase 4 of the reels I was looking for in the local tackle shops today for considerably cheaper than TD & Amazon, So I am happy with how that went. I also purchased 2 other reels from amazon as TD didn't have them in stock, price was similar shipped and delivered.

Note: I am 100% with supporting the local tackle shops, Unfortunately we don't have plenty of shops here like the US, so we are forced to look online for certain things.
Sorry wasn't able to update this sooner, went on a last minute YFT trip and was out of town for a few days. Managed to land 6 fish biggest being 190LB and smallest at 130LB was my first big YFT trip and was an insanely humbling experience.

I received my TD order 5 days after getting the confirmation, everything arrived as expected and in good condition.

They still have a problem with answering the phones and replying to emails, I think once they sort out this new system and getting everything up to date they will be the #1 tackle store for me. They were the only ones that offered everything I was looking for.

Few shots of the YFT for those interested (165LB):

Sam Salmon, IBobi, Reel E and 2 others like this.

Haven’t had any issues with online orders at TD but whoever handles their store inventory is terrible. I was there a couple weeks ago and shelf after shelf was empty and missing popular models / sizes of everything from leader to swivels. It was odd how much common stuff they didn’t have.

I'm not satisfied with how they do business. For example in a recent order 2 of 3 in stock items were not shipped with the remaing in stock item. Over 10 days have elapsed and the other two items (showing as in stock) still havent shipped. On another order I need to return an item since it's the wrong size (my mistake), emailed TD to get an RMA no response, phone calls on endless MUSAK. I'm going to take my business elswhere. BTW I ordered a BG4500 on Friday from Amazon, got it Saturday at 4 pm.

Ok. I live in Central Jersey. Ordered parts for two helm chairs from tackle direct. No contact for two weeks. Called several times. ain’t on hold forever. Finally get through and hear the same story, new system, yada yada. Terrible. I am done with them too.

I've called three times where I was eventually transferred to a human. In two instances when I started to inquire about my partially filled order the call was terminated. In the third instance the guy tried to sell me some sort of gitt card and refused to have any discussion about my order question. In every call I had to navigate a series of scam offers

I needed something from tackle direct, i only live 40 min away, so they were closing in about 1hour and 20 min, so i called i got their answering machine so i left my number,and proceeded anyway, i called again 20 min later while i was on my way, and i got the machine again, so as i was few miles away, my phone rang it was tackle direct soon as i picked up they just hung up on me, not even a hello, then 2 min later same thing, my second phone call hung rigt up, i guess they have a policy that says all calls must be returned same day,policy must not say that ttey have to actually ask (can i help you ) IMO their customer service has went way down, even people walking around dont know the inventory, one person knows the rest just ask the one person !!!
