Re: Take care with Fishwest !!
I also had a problem with FishWest this past week.
Ordered a reel through eBay and they notified me at closing time on Friday that the reel was on backorder, and when (and if) they did get the reel it would be shipped UPS ground (the slowest method possible). They accepted my PayPal payment and my money was tied up, though. With my money tied up and being unsure I could cancel the order and get a refund prevented me from ordering from another dealer until the matter was settled.
Luckily they did cancel the order and refund payment, but it delayed my ordering from another shop until Monday.
Ordered the reel from ReelFlyRod on Monday morning and I should have it tomorrow - that's service!
