Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. For higher value shipments FedEx will require a signature for delivery - this is for your protection, without this provision there is no recourse for a lost or stolen delivery. You can opt out via FedEx website. Your tracking number will be sent upon pickup by FedEx.  (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)


SPOOLING/RIGGING:

Please note, you will see many spooling options for the reels listed below. It's not our intent to confuse folks, but you do have options here unlike some places and we take pride in the fact we can rig things according to your needs, applications and preferences. We have been pioneers in Super Braid / Spectra rigging and we offer a few methods of rigging the lines together beyond most retailers capability, including the standard long range Bimini to Albright knots, Served and Sato connections. We do not use simple uni-to-uni knots for connecting braid to leader, we take the time to make a better knot, one that will hold up over time and deal with larger fish. Simpler knots don't work as well. You can see videos of what we do on our YouTube channel - CharkBaitUSA. We can upgrade that connection to one of several options, the benefit with those connections is that the diameter is thinner and that allows the line to flow through your rod's guides more smoothly, has less resistance in the water and is stealthier. If you have questions regarding rigging, please give us a call or zap back an email and we can go over things with you. Bottom line, you have options with us and we're proud of our staff's ability to rig things to your needs rather than simply "slapping" things together. Our knots hold, as does our in-line rigging.


ProGear!
New VIOLATOR Series!

 

ProGear is introducing a new update to their reel line up. The new Violator Series.

 

The second generation of ProGear reels appear the same to me, except the Kody Sports label is now gone. So, they are a bit cleaner in appearance on the sideplate.  I have not gone over the internal changes, if any. From a feel standpoint, they do seem a bit more refined, but really the first generation's machining and feel was spot on to begin with, new models are simply modestly nicer.

 

 

ProGear added a wider version to the lineup, model 55-2. Pictured above are a pair of 50's. The other models follow the previous sizes, same line capacities as with earlier models. With the V-2 second  generation reels, black has gone away in favor of blue. So, you have a color choice of blue OR silver with the new Violator Series of ProGear reels. Pricing for all models is $249.
