07/25/2014 (early edition)
Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!
What a wonderful season we are having this year. Everything is coming together for us, local, long range, I can't say I've ever seen better fishing in SoCal waters and of course further down in the past 30+ years. Finished up the ICAST show a week ago, almost back together after the show. Many interesting new products introduced which will be posted here as soon as they become available. This week we have some interesting items posted, some reels which we will phase out to make room for new editions, some very nice specials as a result. While we have grown over the years, in reality there are only so many products we can stock in depth. We must look towards future products which we'd like to support and consider our product mix to be sure we're on target to meet our client's needs. So, you've got an opportunity to grab some nice reels for a rather spectacular deal (including Fin-Nor Santiago two speeds, Okuma Salterra Series and Accurate Fury Series). Stock is limited on the closeouts... And, we've got some dandy lures to offer you this week as well. Halco lures are arriving this week, and one of our CharkBait jigs just proved it's effectiveness on the Red Rooster this past week with great performance on larger grade bluefin, yellowfin and OPAH! The skipper told us, "make sure everyone that comes in the shop buys one of these before getting on the boat." They're that good...but we've been telling you that for a few years...(check out the Slash). I'd also suggest dropping the Wedge down deep now too. That is also a GREAT iron for tuna.  Enjoy this week's offerings, and as always, thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials. 

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

Special #1

CharkBait's Slash

Our Slash jig can be fished a couple ways, for great effect. For our long range fishermen, it's a GREAT wahoo lure. For deepwater enthusiasts it's a deep water tuna jig with excellent action on the drop and wind. Having said that, the thing casts great and we rig it properly with a higher quality Mustad hook and a ball bearing swivel (ours even points the right way...) attached with welded rings. Our colors and finish are top quality. While it will bring in wahoo when they are around, don't be afraid to jig it for tuna and yellowtail. If your fishing trip heads to Alijos you've got a great wahoo lure, but if it shifts gears and moves to Cedros fine, you've got the right lure for yellowtail. If instead you hit the banks for rockfish, you've still got an effective lure on your hands. One lure, fits a few applications, and a few different styles of fishing. 

 

Our slash bait is available in FIVE sizes:
 80 gm, 2.8 oz, 5"
100 gm, 3.5 oz, 5 1/2"
150 gm, 5.29 oz, 6 1/2"
300 gm, 10.6 oz /180mm, 7"*
400 gm, 14.11 oz /200mm, 8"*

* - These are the one's that scored big on the RRIII charter this week.

This versatile lure can be fished several ways, cast and retrieve, vertical yo-yo style jigging, and speed jigging. There is a very slight curve to the lure, allowing a bit more action on the drop and as the lure is bounced up. It's important to keep a good contact on the lure if you're fishing yo-yo style for a couple reasons. First, you won't know you've been bitten unless you've got contact with the lure, secondly the lure can foul itself if you don't offer some control of its accent or descent.

Based upon client feedback, we've expanded this series of lures. Now we have two new LARGE size jigs to add to the assortment. The new 300 and 400 gram sizes are perfect for dealing with better grade tuna when they're holding deep. Of course they'll also do a number on yellowtail and wahoo if you need to go down to get 'em. Given the deeper water application, we've added our Illuminata feature, the new LARGE size jigs have a recess for use of a 4.5mm light stick. Go deep, get noticed and get bit!

 

Caught aboard the Red Rooster III last week on our 4 day charter.
We got a call from the boat, saying - "Do not let anyone leave the shop without
this lure - 300 or 400 gm Slash." They took the larger grade tuna and this nice Opah.

Special #2

Accurate
FURY!

- Please note, Accurate announced a change to the Fury Series. The new models will be polished instead of matt finished and they will use a bearing for the anti-reverse instead of a bearing plus dogs for the AR. So, it's time to clear the inventory and cut price for the existing models. The pricing is only available for stock on hand - availability is indeed limited. As a courtesy to the manufacturer, we are not disclosing the price, you will need to add the reel to the shopping cart to see the sale price. All regular terms of sale apply, meaning we'll still spool the reel up (even with braid) and ship it for free if you reach our $150 free shipping level.

 

Your Pick: Toro Tamer SUPER BRAID, GRIP & WEIGH LIPPER SCALE, or Premium Pliers

You choose either FREE offer! Your Choice, Toro Tamer Super Braid Spooling with topshot: choice of "Solid",  Hollow Core 12 or 16 Strand, OR Grip and Weigh lipper scale OR Premium Pliers at no additional charge. Both offers represent a value of $50 or more, and both are excellent.

In late 2013 Accurate released a new series of reels destined to change the fishing tackle industry, and the quality of fishing gear available to anglers. The new FURY series of reels incorporates many lessons learned in the past 15 years by the designers at Accurate. And, the new series is available at an incredible value for fishermen. Accurate reels have long been associated with quality and performance, though their price was above reach by most anglers. NOW THAT has CHANGED! The new Fury reels offer single drags rather than their patented dual drag system. That saves some money in manufacture. They still use a double dog anti-reverse system, and that's reliable and durable, long term. They've simplified their design a bit, machining is simpler to achieve and those savings result in a cost that makes owning an Accurate within reach, with performance that goes well beyond that of most manufacturers at anywhere near the Fury's price point. Superior quality was never so affordable. And, now with a gorgeous candy apple red color, they are better looking and protected from the effects of corrosion than ever. These are some great performing reels, and they are even better looking with the new production we've commissioned with Accurate. The Fury series are priced from an affordable $279!

After the first production Accurate added a one way anti-reverse bearing in addition to their double dog anti-reverse to the Fury Series. Now that's big time reliability, a significant upgrade. And, it's one thing that their $500-600 DPX series does not have, and their Dauntless series at $600+ does offer. Here's the breakdown on Accurate reels for 2014:

Series Drag System Anti Reverse Cast Control
Fury Single Drag Dual Dogs plus Anti-Reverse Bearing None
DPX Twin Drag Triple Dogs Mechanical Cast Control
Dauntless Twin Drag Dual Dogs plus Anti-Reverse Bearing None

 

Here's a single speed 500 size And, the two speed option exists as well, again 500 size Special Production Candy Apple Red pictured.

These new reels follow the same sort of line capacity figures as other Accurate reels of the same size designation, and they are certainly made for fishing braided super lines. For the 400 size, I'd suggest a 30# application, 40 on the 500 and 50-60# on the 600N, and for line capacities figure 300 yds mono for each piece at the tests mentioned. Though most folks will load on 40-50# braid on the 400, 50-60 on the 500 and 60-80 for the 600 series - about 300 yds and then top off with the appropriate mono topper. In terms of drag capability, Accurate typically does not publish these figures. They consider them counter productive and prone to shall we say BS. For instance most Japanese reel firms base their specs on an empty spool while American firms use real world conditions, meaning there's a full load of line on the reels. An empty spool provides a higher number, but it ain't reality. In testing, we're getting 20#'s of drag on these reels, and that's more than consistent with the intended line tests these reels were made to fish. Can you fish heavier lines? Sure, but if you try to work higher loads than intended you are not using the product appropriately. The same can be said of Avet, Penn and other well regarded firms products. Pricing: 400, 500, 600 single speeds: $279, $289, $319, and for the two speeds $379, $389, $399. That's a very aggressive price level given the construction of these new reels.

Please note, Accurate is expanding the number of models within this line. If you don't see the specific model you are seeking, don't worry. Select a similar size model and then bounce back an email with your order number and the request for an alternate model. We do NOT bill online, we review orders and email prior to billing.

I first saw this new series of reels at the July 2009 ICAST show. I was flat out impressed. Without doubt, this is a game changer for the sportfishing industry. Okuma listened, listened well, and applied what they heard in creating what may very well be some of the best built reels on the market today. The reels are robust, solid, creatively engineered, and made to go the distance. 

All the new reels feature a carbon DFD (dual force drag) system for exceptional drag performance, high drag capacity, long term reliability and maximum alignment and durability. The Makaira reels offer a "Pull Bar Drag System" with the advantage that the drag is being pulled rather than pushed, which places heavy pressure on the left side plate and utilizes the frame for overall stability - that's the flaw of design in all reels built today, and Okuma feels they've beat the system. With the Pull Bar design, there's no pressure to create frame flex, or reduced drag pressure as a result of tolerance alignment issues. As a result of the design, the open top models in this line have none of the flex issues common with other reels; no need to compensate for the disadvantage of design by increasing mass, for instance. 

 

The highly efficient drag system was designed and engineered by Tiburon Engineering to increase maximum drag pressure, reduce side load pressure on ball bearings and improve heat dissipation for long term smoothness over extended fights. The Okuma DFD is considered a wet drag system comprised of two carbon fiber drag washers that are sandwiched together and bonded with a fiber glass core. Pure carbon washers are coated with a thin layer of Cal Sheet's Universal drag grease for virtually zero start up inertia. These washers are compressed by two precision ground 17-4 grade stainless steel drag plates that have been ground flat, then polished for maximum smoothness. The stainless steel friction drag plates have a minimum 32 Rockwell hardness allowing for high-end drag settings and consistently smooth drag performance at all ranges! (Model 20 pictured above)

Other important points of design:
Silent anti-reverse, 16 point double dog anti-reverse for the most reliable, smoothest and strongest anti-reverse on the market. These reels so not depend on a one way bearing for their anti-reverse, yet they have a similar slick feel to them. Robust!
Helical Cut Gears, offers improved gear meshing, and gear smoothness. They feel like butter being sliced when you change gears. They're both smoother and stronger as a result of their design.

Now, if you'd like a second opinion on the quality of these reels, you might do a little internet search and find a couple independent reviews that more than agree with our high opinion of these new reels. They really are terrific, and the beauty is more than skin deep.

Penn Fathom Star Drag Reels!

Special: Free SUPER BRAID Spooling

300 Yards FREE BRAID

Get 300 yards of top quality Gel Spun Braid Spooling at no extra charge with these innovative reels.

Penn's Fathom Star Drag reels are a new series of full metal bodied reels that are made for years of hard use, and made to fish very well by all measures. The reels have GREAT freespool performance, excellent drags, and they're built Penn tough. When the levelwind Fathom reels first arrived last year, all they guys here were beating up the Penn rep asking why the heck Penn didn't come out with a non-levelwind version of the reels. They were some of the nicest levelwinds ever made, offered some things Daiwa could not achieve with their Saltist series. We really felt that a non-levelwind Fathom would give the Saltist and the Avet's some competition. Well, I guess Penn was listening because they introduced this new reel at ICAST and the response told them that they indeed were on the right track. The new Penn Fathom series star drag reels are excellent fishing instruments!

From the little 12 to the large 40 size fathom, all represent solid reels. The favorite of the guys here tends to run towards the narrow 25N, a bit taller than the 12/15 size and narrower than the 30. Very nice size for casting, with 50# Spectra suggested for backing, then you've got room for close to 100 yards of 30# on top. Wonderful for most casting work, and the reel will find it's home on plenty of jig-sticks rigged up just that way. Penn has a winner on their hands.

Halco Max 130

IN STOCK - IN DEPTH - NEW PATTERNS ADDED

This has turned out to be the hottest trolling lure for the tuna bite this year (2012). The Halco 130 Max is a cutting edge lure, bibless design. It's great in both a casting or trolling application, and it's been the troll use that's really been successful for folks this year. It can run to up to 12 knots, running at 7 feet in depth. They weight 2 3/4 ounces and they will indeed cast well in addition to trolling. For 2013 the point was proven again on the long range boats and on shorter length fishing commercial and private boats. The Max 130 was the go-to lure of choice. Even I took advantage of the lure's performance, earning another trolling jackpot (jacket) aboard the Red Rooster III on our four day charter in September. These are great lures, and the fish will literally eat the paint of 'em. That's exactly the condition of the lure I was using, most all the paint had indeed been eaten off through previous catches. Didn't matter one bit, the action got it bit. Out performed the more standard tuna feathers by a wide margin.

One point that I'd like to mention, comes from a friend of mine from Australia. Since  the 130 Max swims well both slow and fast on the troll (heck it works as a cast/retrieve lure, too) it's a lure that can save you gas. What I mean by this is that the typical surface tuna lure must move through the water fairly quickly in order to draw a strike, 7 knots or so. While the 130 Max trolls well at speed, speed also uses up fuel. The lures are just as effective when dragged at 2 knots! They swim well. So, while you can run these lures behind the big sportfishers at speed (as we've all learned well by now) they also work well for a private boater who is moving at a slower pace. You can indeed gain fuel economy by dropping the speed down a bit and still catch plenty of tuna with these very effective lures.

Here's some recent feedback from our September 2013 Red Rooster charter
- I won another trolling jacket from the Red Rooster on this lure. The thing tracked straight, gained some depth verses the tuna feathers the other guys were using, and got me a troll fish that was bigger than anyone else's. What more can be said, the lures work. - Mark

Halco is an Australian lure manufacturer, with factories in Australia and Indonesia. They are considered one of Australia's best fishing lure companies, with many records to their credit.

Here's a note from one of our clients from "out of town" who found something other than tuna to eat the Halco...
Photo is a a fish trip 2 days ago. Used one of the Halco lures with the small  pole on the right of the photo. Took my friend some time to reel in the Wahoo. This spot is 5 minutes from the dock.
 
Thanks again,
 Dennis  (Guam)


Yeikes I blew it!!! 7/31 - We flew in close to 500 lures on Monday 7/28, and now four days later we're toast, lures sold out. We've already placed another order, they're being painted now, they'll be here 8/12-14.
Sorry I didn't bring in more to begin with, but how was I to know we'd be offering them for almost $10
less than some other nameless mail order guy who's a bit exploitative of folks. Same character posts the standard Pilchard color as an exclusive. Must think folks are dumb... Give us a couple weeks to reload.
We didn't grow this business by ripping people off, we do try to bring great gear to fishermen at very fair values.

Okuma Makaira Rods

First shown at ICAST in July 2011, the Makaira series rods have a lot of positives in terms of components used, rod actions and appearance. Folks know that we are very supportive of both Calstar and Seeker rods, consider them the best made rods in the world, so convincing us to bring in an offshore produced rod is not an easy thing. However, in this instance Okuma got it right again. Like their Makaira series reels, they listened to the right people, and started from scratch to design an excellent series of rods. They learned much from Calstar, one feel of their jigsticks demonstrates that point very well. It's also apparent that they learned much from their association with the Australian fishing community. These are flat out excellent rods, and they are offered at an exceptional value.

Makaira rods feature newly innovated carbon technology in the manufacture of the rod blanks. Light, strong and responsive are well deserved adjectives for these new "sticks." The new rods are stunning in their appearance, with custom abalone decoration above the foregrip on the rods, and exceptional in their actions. They incorporate ALPS deep press 316 stainless guide frames with hard zirconium guide inserts for handling braided lines. Their jigsticks use x-wrap shrink tubing for the grip area for ruggedness and secure handling. Their heavier weight rods feature a custom ALPS aluminum reel seat with abalone underlay, for a truly custom look - with solid performance backing it up. Their IGFA standup rods feature custom leather wrapped foregrips! And their trolling rods use superior quality ALPS premium roller guides for large knot clearance. Their casting rods incorporate an integrated rubber butt cap/gimbal design (both spinning and conventional casting rods). On the heavier trolling and popping rods, an aluminum gimbal is included.

Shipping is included in the price of the rods posted below. The 9 footers are only available for store pickup - shipping expense is NUTZ!

Ahi Assassin
- Dedicated Jigging Rods from Toro Tamer

2015 NANO HELIX AHI ASSASSIN
INDUSTRY FIRST - NANO RESINS PLUS HELIX DESIGN
FOR UNMATCHED STRENGTH AND LIGHTNESS

At the 2014 ICAST show Toro Tamer will be introducing new Nano Helix Ahi Assassin Jigging Rods. The new Nano technology resins incorporated in these  rods are at the cutting edge of rod design development. These rods also make use of helix technology in their blank construction, similar in some respects to the much appreciated and profoundly missed Graphite USA rods (aka United Composites). The new Ahi Assassin jigging rods take the Helix feature and build upon that with new Nano resins. Nano Technology resins are ultra-microscopic spheres of silica which bind the carbon fibers (graphite) in the rods. Essentially the resin permeates the graphite fabric, the submicroscopic particles occupy the space between carbon fibers to provide additional support and strength at the molecular level. Modulus increases and compression strength increases, the bond between fibers increases, the flex strength and internal shear strength increases. Strength and durability are enhanced, easily over 2-3 times the strength and impact resistance results, providing you with true state of the art jigging rods which go beyond any rod currently built. These are all made to accommodate conventional reels, spinning versions will become available in the fall of 2014.

To provide a bit more detail in the construction, we use a unique helix technology which is different from the standard scrim process. The standard scrim process uses fiberglass or carbon scrim to give the blanks hoop strength, but our helix technology uses the carbon spiral to support the hoop strength of the blanks. a single carbon spiral (helical or helix) is at the core of the blank. This type of the structure is regarded as the most effective way of maintaining cross section stability during bending, so our carbon helix core will minimize cross sectional deformation during loading, improving power and response. That is a unique characteristic of our Ahi Assassin rods from Toro Tamer.

Now we are also using NANO materials combined with the helix technology, it makes the blanks significantly stronger and as well keeps the blanks out of deformation when they are bent under load - like when you're pulling significant drag on a larger fish.

Because we use the spiral carbon core when making the blanks the tip section is much stronger, especially noticeable for the fine tips. Our unique blank manufacturing process makes our blanks stronger. Traditional rods made out of the scrim materials, show weakness through the cross section, the 'glass or graphite scrim is already broken during the manufacturing! So the only support for the hoop strength is the epoxy resin. That is why a traditionally manufactured graphite or 'glass rod is so easy to break.  Combining the carbon helix core and Nano technology results in an incredibly strong rod under all load conditions. That's the key to the Ahi Assassin's incredible strength and performance under load.

Background: We're proud to introduce you to Ahi Assassin Jigging Rods. I'll say out front, I am a Calstar and Seeker sort of guy, I prefer USA made rods, no question about that bias. It took a lot to get me to accept that a quality rod could come from overseas. But, I'm also a realist, and when it comes to jigging and popping rods, quite honestly the USA firms were slow to produce a high quality piece that fit the new technology of Spectra lines and deep drop lures, in my estimation. That category of rod does indeed demand some different action than we use for bait or lure fishing. As a result, we took off the blinders and did some homework, talked to folks both in the USA and clients from other countries. I did some traveling, too. As a consequence of jumping on the learning curve we were introduced to some folks that offered a fresh approach to jigging synthesizing technology with technique. We are now working with a New Zealand owned firm which has their own plant in China. They are the producers of  our Ahi Assassin jigging rods. The same firm produces high end rods for the Australian and New Zealand market, and the feedback we've received about them has been very positive, our confidence high in this new source of quality rod building. They do not make inexpensive rods, understand that in the Australian market it's not at all uncommon to buy a rod for $1K. High end has a market, and junk is not accepted well. The firm we are tied to does not make cheap Chinese rods, they are not made to hit a price point, they don't build the type of rod that many reel companies have brought to market here. They build world class rods, and we are indeed fortunate to have made contact with the owners of this firm to bring us the best dedicated jigging rods on the market. Big statement, but once you feel the rods you'll understand that it's not an idle boast.


Conventional Guides (overhead)

A bit of background, several years ago a few fellows from New Zealand set up a manufacturing facility in an economic development zone in China, nothing unusual about that, several large firms have done the same, including Mustad, Penn, VanStaal, Shimano... But, two of the partners actually live there and run the factory. They know what they are doing, also they well know our local West Coast rods. I spent a long time with one of 'em going over the history of the old Sabre firm, Calstar, Truline... They know our history well, and know the actions we've grown up using. They build their rods for their own New Zealand and Australia market, but have the ability to produce to our specs, too. They are a much more expensive firm to do business with than the more typical Chinese producer of rods. Their technology is better, too. I've been to their plant several times now, and it's impressive, more impressive than anything I've seen here to date. Their plant is located well off the beaten path, simply because they did not want others to have easy access to knowledge about what they were doing and their techniques.

Let me provide some background on the Ahi Assassin rods, all the rods we offer are made from Carbon and Fiberglass (note, the original production used 'glass and carbon, the new production makes use of carbon fiber for the matt material and to add strength the helix design which was first used by GUSA and now improved upon with the addition of Nano micro technology resins for even greater strength), but unlike Seeker and Calstar's design, these rods use both carbon and 'glass all the way through the rod's length, but the amount of carbon at the tip is less than the butt. The carbon is reduced consistently from butt to tip, and the glass increases consistently from butt to tip. The Ahi Assassin rod blanks do not stop laying carbon fibre on at a certain point, so there is no strength concentration on the blanks, consistency of material and thereby consistency of action is the goal and it's achieved! The weight of our blanks is very light and the action of our jigging rods is exceptional, the bend is parabolic to help provide your jigs the very best action and to help with the additional stress caused by fishing the newer Spectra and braid lines which have no stretch. The rods action helps in taming a larger grade fish too since there's always pressure on the fish, they don't get a second wind.

To finish these rods, we chose state of the art components from ALPS. The guides are made to deal with Spectra for the life of the rod's use, and the action of the rod will help maintain pressure on a fish instead of creating a break-off from too stiff an action and too little stretch of the super line. The new rods work with you, they work with the jig, and they help you work a fish! All the rods in this series are 6 1/2 feet in length. That's a mid-ground position, some folks preferring a 6 footer for jigging, some liking the flexibility of a 7 footer. At 6 1/2 feet, we can cover both ends well and if you chose to use the rod for fishing bait, so be it, you can cast well and deal well a larger fish given the rod's superb action. The guides selected will deal well with Spectra lines, and in the case of the spinning rod, we reverse the largest guide to help prevent wind knots.

Please click on the images, you'll have a larger view of the rods and can check detail more closely. The wrap is our distinctive CharkBait red, with silver and black trim. The rods are triple wrapped, and the resin used is pure old school. No cheap fast cure resins used, these take time, four hours curing time, 3 coats. That's something you don't find on many rods these days. And, it shows upon inspection.

The hypolon is sanded, for a smooth and richer feel. Again, this is something that's not typically done on factory made rods. And there are some nice cosmetic touches you'll notice on these rods upon your inspection. The gimbals are unique ALPS ball style jigging designs.

Jigging rods are rated a bit differently than conventional bait or lure rods. Jigging  rods are designed with lure weight a key component of their design. The way the rod bends is critical, it's action with a specific weight lure is a critical part of it's design, of even greater importance than it's test rating. We incorporate both specifications, but please do understand that the most important characteristic of these rods comes from matching them with a particular lure weight rather than line test rating.

Fin Nor's Santiago series reels represent the most advanced big game reels they've ever produced. All stops have been pulled to offer every advancement modern technology can provide. The best materials and design combine to fulfill the traditions of excellence that for decades has driven the Fin-Nor brand.

 

For 2011 Fin-Nor introduced the unlimited class Santiago 130, specifically designed for the angler whose quest for big game fish is truly without compromise. This beast of a reel produces 110 pounds of drag, and like all Santiago's comes with a certificate of specifications - each reel being individually tested at the factory for performance. And, like all Santiago reels, a massive water-tight drag system is employed. A revolutionary stainless steel drag plate works in conjunction with twin carbon fiber drag plates to create incredibly smooth, long lasting drag performance - specifically designed to handle strong, long fighting fish. When engaged, it is water-tight to protect your reels' drag from salt and boat splash. These reels are made to be fished hard, for decades of hard use rather than years.

Face Buffs
New Product!

Fishermen spend more time exposed to the elements than most folks, and those of us offshore on the water get nailed by damaging UV rays more than anyone. Skin cancer is a real concern, and I've had my share of visits to the dermatologist getting scraped, cut, frozen and treated for this stuff. Most of us make use of sunscreen these days, but that stuff is not perfect. As you sweat or get wet it's effectiveness goes away. Over the past couple years you might have noticed some guys wearing a face buff/muff. These soft breathable fabrics provide a very effective protection against UV rays, and they are moisture wicking, soft, breathable and comfortable. Their SPF rating is typically over 90%, compare that to a sunscreen and there really isn't much of a comparison. If you scan the net you'll see an average selling price of $30 with some to $90! Well, there's a bit of "water" in that sort of pricing, and as one who's dealt with skin cancer, I'd suggest that an ounce of prevention should not break the bank. So...Toro Tamer came to market with a new Face Buff in yellowfin tuna offshore pattern. While we could easily sell these for $20-30, we don't do so.

ALL OF THESE BUFFS LOOK GREAT! The tuna design is so darn appropriate given the local tuna bite going on now, and for our Gulf Coast guys I think you'll appreciate the Redfish which was made just for you! And, the Tarpon - well that's pretty darn special too. They are stunning and darn effective at saving your skin!

I'll suggest that there's not a better product of this type made, though there are many of equal quality that sell for five times as much money.

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)
