Good luck...price would be great, but suspect you would pay and never see the product. If I can’t find a US location for an online purchase I will absolutely will not buy.

I reported all those that were popping up on my Facebook as scams. I haven't seen one since I did that.

I have never heard of that company.

Seen similar with this outfit https://www.afratecmarket.com/shiman...a-p-560668.htm

They claim to be selling Shimano Tekotas for 50% off retail & Free Shipping

I did a test order of some small skirts 6 weeks ago and nothing has arrived.

If you look closely at any of the pictures they have posted of the reels you will see absolutely no lettering on any of the reels especially on the spools, thats the first thing I noticed and thought fakes right away. The authentic ones I've seen all have the model numbers all over. 🤷‍♂️

If you pay with Paypal is there any protection if they are not as advertised ?

I bought 14 reels, we shall see if it is real or not. If it is not real I am protected with my credit card company for a refund. I have seen this type of deal before and made out very well, its a closeout reel and over stocked. Fingers crossed it is legit.

Sounds like the same group that's been advertising Stella's on FB for $128 or some ridiculous nunber

I bought the colored metal yeti coozies that were knock off from a different vendor knowing they were fake. They shipped and were a good buy for $12. Something mechanical on the other hand not so much. Especially on a BG where your paying for a sealed drag and heavy duty gear.

If you think that has 1% chance of being legit go for it.

They don't say they are daiwa BG........they say they are best and strongest. Says it right above the only picture on the page that has an add to cart button.
All those pictures below that say daiwa..........don't have working add to cart button.
My bet is you get a made in China clone that may be worth what you are actually paying for it, but it won't be no Daiwa BG.

Guys, these sites are scams. I've seen it all. Air conditioners, canoes, duck hunting boats, etc. It's fake.

Couple guys from a FB group I'm a member of all threw down $100 on their credit cards for a Beavertail Stealth duck hunting boat. They normally go for about $800. Guess what? They never received them lol. Shocking.

I keep getting one that is advertising cheap Muck brand boots, like 27 dollars for a 120 dollar pair of shoes. Way too good to be true and when you click their links their websites hardly even work. Seems like an obvious scam to me.

Site is shut down now. Buyer beware. If it looks too good to be true, its not true.
