well not for me...bought these newly release Penn’s with $60 off retail price...been buying from them 5x already with 0 issues whatsoever...btw my FTH 10XNLD from shopfishbrain.com is arriving anytime this week.Screw fishbrain. In my experience: Deceptive advertising. Runaround excuse emails. Blaming their “distributor” (code for...they never had the product in stock).
I’m glad it worked for you. I must have pulled the trigger one day too late on that same deal, because they utterly failed on my order...then jerked me around.
That's exactly what's going on. Maybe I was a little harsh saying "screw them." I get it now - their business model is to sell things that they never stock, they never touch. It gets drop-shipped, like you said. That by itself can be a very successful business model.I would say that the most likely scenario seems to me that they drop ship and that one would receive the merchandise eventually but one would have to weigh if it was worth the hassle and no one to pin down for potential problems.YMMV
