When ever possible try and support your local brick and mortar mom and pop local store. Yeah you save a few bucks online but in the long run pinching your pennies is a fools errand and over time will likely end up costing you more in time and hassle when your order goes south. Yeah you save a few bucks buying a reel but good luck if it ain't right. Life is short,time is valuable. No mom and pop store is getting rich off you, most a ekking out a living like the rest of us. Give your money to some stock holder at Amazon if you want but think about where your money goes.
There's some great shops that share the passion for fishing just like you. Supporting those guys is the right thing to do. Or give your money to some guy who gives 2 shits only if it effects his stock price.
I've ordered a few reels from charkbait that were on sale but at least those guys are fisherman and give a shit.
Think where your moneys going at least
