Maybe it's just me but I had a plan to purchase some spinners for fall Salmon season that starts August 1st. So I ordered some from TCO and some from R&B Lures in the beginning of June. There was some communication between all parties but so far I have received none. Maybe I just have to stay with Mepps and Foxes again :pray::pray::pray:

Anybody else having the same experience?

For R&B give Rob a call! If there's any delay or mistake, I'm sure he'll make up for it. I've talked to him this morning and he is super busy these days.

Trapped inside my own mind.
Yep both of those guys have been crunched lately. Maybe try a polite phone call asking where you are on the paint list.

Less than 50 feet from the Santiam River! :)
PM is the way to go

For TCO send Kodiak a pm to get it cleared up. He will straighten it out in private with you and make good on your order I'm sure. :D
Be safe.

I bought all my blades for the fall season early in the year so as to avoid the rush. As has been already mentioned above, both suppliers are upstanding business men and I'm confident they will follow through and have you geared up in the nick of time.

Sorry, but...

Sorry, but...

for my part all I can say is the following:
1. My pay pal isn't working and cannot collect on any orders until the end of the month at the earliest. No money has changed hands and will be sendung your order (made, just waiting to ship). If I can't collect after a period of time my pay-pal deletes your order automatically. (no shipping address)

2. As soon as my pay-pal is up some new things will be happening including a gauranteed 7 day shipping.

3. I have store and cash accounts at volume. As these customers are my only sources to collect from theymust remain a priority until I can collect.

Whats your name? I have had almost 1000 orders since late june including guide orders that can be several hundred blades. I can't get you an answer without a name! Also a quick phone call accomplishes alittle more than a nameless post online. My personal cell is 971-222-7456.

there you go, fisch... see...? phil and rob are both outstanding and this forum is awesome...

you'll get your spinners in no time. and since you'll be using some of the best spinners in the pnw, you'll most definitely do well on the water.

It's an opportunity. Now I know another local tackle maker.

Edit - Are you the store next to the park in Troutdale?

I had this same issue.
my funds were returned to my CC.
should I reorder, or just wait?

I have not received any hardware as of yet

I think it was your wife I spoke to on the phone and I am building it right now. And will go in the mail with fiches this afternoon. I am hoping by monday or tuesday to have the issue resolved and be back to getting things out the door in a hurry.
