Delivery & Shipping

Do you offer free shipping?

We offer free domestic shipping on most orders over $150 subtotal. This excludes oversized and bulky items such as rods, blanks, gaffs, some tackle boxes, lobster nets, landing nets and other large items. Any 1 piece rod over 7'10" in length often incurs the biggest oversize fees charged by domestic shipping companies although we do have lower rates via other carriers on the West Coast. Any additional shipping fees will be automatically calculated at checkout before any billing is done.

What countries do you ship to?

We currently ship products within the US and to almost every country in the world, covering all available destination via FedEx Express and UPS. International shipping times depend on the products and destination and rates are automatically calculated at checkout.

How long will it take to get my order?

Standard shipping can take 3-8 business days depending on location and order volume. If you have requested spooling on your reel or rigging on your lures then it could take an additional day or two. Next day & 2 day shipping is available on most domestic orders (for an additional charge). Orders placed after 12pm Pacific Standard Time will be processed the next business day.

What carriers do you ship with?

We work with UPS, FedEx, US Postal Service and GLS. When your order qualifies for free shipping or has a rod that qualifies for discounted shipping we reserve the right to choose which carrier it is sent with, otherwise you can pick the service you want. UPS Ground ranges from 1 to 7 day delivery, USPS Priority Mail is typically 1-3 days but is not a guaranteed express service, and USPS Ground Advantage takes roughly 3-7 business days. Longer rods are generally sent via GLS unless otherwise specified, this service ranges from 1 - 10 days.

Prop 65 Warning ⚠
  • Great budget friendly line winder with all the features you need
  • Accommodates almost all conventional reels
  • Powered by a 1/2″ or 3/8″ Drill (Not Included)
  • Foot pedal for better control
  • Comes with pre-drilled base

The Sato winder is a less expensive option that also has a lot going for it in terms of flexibility. Instead of putting dollars into a motor and housing, the Sato winder makes use of a 1/2 drill to power through winding chores. With a decent 1/2″ drill there’s great torque, so you can deal with spooling Spectra effectively. The smaller 3/8 can work for mono, but NOT spectra. You can pick up a 1/2″ drill for about $70 (or more), so factor that into the cost of this winder. This is the least expensive winder available with the power to deal with heavy spectra winding which requires much torque to spool properly – meaning tightly – so it won’t dig into itself.M/p>

The line winder does not use a brake, you control the packing of line by adding resistance yourself. At the shop here, we rarely use a brake anyway, preferring to use a gloved hand to get a better feel for the pressure being exerted. I’d recommend the same for you. You’ll also need to level the line as you put it on the reel. The only winder with a built in leveler is the big Triangle HD which runs you about $2K (for comparison). The Sato winder comes with a peddle control that allows you to vary the speed of spooling (making use of the variable speed drill’s motor).

The Sato winder is a good system, and economical when compared to other options with similar capability. In reality, to get a winder capable of dealing with 135# Spectra you are usually looking for something between $1.2-2K. And, the Sato system has some unique advantages even comparing to the $2K products. For a long range fisherman or a private boater, it’s a darn good option.
