Found this site several pages deep in a google search. These prices on rods and reels are half price our best sale prices. fish-united.com
The okuma blue diamond rod I just ordered at $55 us plus $10 shipping plus duty fees was a good deal. I could not find one in Canada. At the above site it was $24 us., with free shipping.
Other rods and reels I checked were are similar pricing.
Here's the catch.
The site is in Indonesia. Free shipping by boat is free. 20-23 days to Ontario. Lots of time until spring. The site was sometimes slow, but by refreshing the page, the pages turned over ok.
I will order the same rod and try it out. All I would lose is $24 us if it never arrives. I figure most rod and reels are made in Asia, so pricing is much cheaper.
Check it out, the prices will make you drool.

The site has zero security, is collecting data in the clear (no encryption) and is offering not only super cheap prices but free shipping anywhere? If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. There are messages all over about people getting ripped off by this site.

You might lose more than $24.00, you will be handing them enough information to scam you several ways from sunday. Since they don't encrypt anything you are also a potential victim for anyone who hacks their site which would take about 10 minutes to do.

Thanks for the review site Earthling. I thought it smelled a little fishy. That is why I brought it up here, to see if anyone else knew this site. I will not be putting in that order. Sorry to hear that some of you had no luck with this company.
