Ok guys I'm looking for a good website to buy rods and reels from. Is there any website out there that not many people know about that I can buy fishing gear from without spending a fortune. Any info is greatly appreciated!

If you want good stuff, you gotta spend money. Just go shopping at your Uncle Cliff's house...

Bass Pro Last Friday had a sale which was impossible to beat but only lasted 3 hours. All major stores have great sales.

You might want to go be friends with your little local tackle dealer, it's a great place to get lots of info and the 10% markup over the internet is worth it in info and especially when something goes wrong. I was at my local tackle dealer on monday and 6 people brought in rods while I was there that they broke over the weekend, they knew all the regular customers and handed them new rods no questions asked. Many of the shops do this with reels also but ask what rods and reels have over the counter warranties. You can't get service like that on the net much less info on baits, areas and techniques.

very often companies come out with new models and sell older models at nearly 50% off. I actually think right now its going on with shimano corados.

Just wait for good deals and get a couple of them.

I agree, shimanos always has good sales towards fall as they make way for new models. Get a curado if you can. As far as rods, academy usually has those rod riots which are good times to pick up gear.

You cant beat Academy. They have just about everything you will need at a much lower price than basspro or cabelas.

Speaking from experience, go online to 'Affordablefishing.com'. The business is located out of Mandeville, La. I have ordered numerous reels from Curado E7, Citica 200, Stratic 2500...etc....The guy is an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to deal with. Oh and by the way the reels I have listed smoked academys prices including shipping. FYI They also list on ebay.
