humming bird helix 7 chirp si gps g2n w/ nav pkg. $849.00 us/$1064.99 can.
Its been this price since last summer and because its such a hot seller hummingbird opted out of the classic with this unit, so no triple crown bonus pts. and no free installation, so for me it doesn't work, I want one! (got me by the short hairs!) Cheaper for me to buy the product on line and have BP install it. But if you want a lowrance or a garmin - they offer the points and free install with these electronic brands.
Last year I purchased the terrova and got the pts. and free installation best sale then. This year I don't see the terrova listed (another hot seller)

So buyer beware if you want this unit too!

but pls post any good 2018 spring sells when you hear about them

The 2 Garmin units almost half off in the flyer are tempting I've been on the lookout for a second newer finder on the console for the last view months.

In that case the two echomaps are a good deal, but they are not going to be as shown. The ones pictured are echomap plus units with touch screen, if you read the description it says echomap, which is not a touch unit.

Managed to get my order in the early hours before work. Mostly just stuff I forgot to get at
tackle warehouse to finish off what I needed. Anyone else always experience their site crashing all the time on the opening day of the classic sale? Last year was the same thing never did get my chronarch

Hey mephisto, hows tackle warehouse been for you? Iíve been meaning to give them a try but have heard there can be ridiculous extra charges when stuff crosses the border. Iíve ordered from a few places in the states before with no issues, just wondering how they are. They seem like the best place for prices on some things, and I could certainly ďdonateĒ a few bucks to them

I'd say typically they're prices are about 15% -20% cheaper than bass pro so in my mind when they do 20% off black friday it's more like 35% compared to bps, so when they had mustad, booyah, missile and strike king 30% off black friday things got crazy, Shipping is typically 30 usd but when you're buying booyah pad crasher for $3.50 usd or strike king plastics for $2.75, mustad hooks for 1.80 usd it doesn't take long to recover the $30 usd shipping. I've personally never bought more than 10 pounds of tackle, but I always spend at least $200 usd and it's never been more than like $31 for shipping.

I only buy on black friday and 25 days of Christmas because I really want to make the shipping cost worth my time and those are the only 2 sales worth my time .

I also always buy in bulk I never go to my local tackle shop and pay $8 -$12 cad for soft plastics id rather buy too much on sale than not enough. (just my mentality)



On an unrelated note revo rockets and revo premiers (older gen) were 129 usd and 149 usd very good prices for high end reels. BPS clearance bin and if you buy at bps I think you get a rebate form for an abu jersey. I bought a revo premier I own a 2nd gen and it's super smooth and I own a revo rocket great reel as well.
