Anybody Get Their Bps Master Catalog?

Recommended Posts

Cuz I haven't gotten mine.

 

Need new bathroom reading material, the 2013 catalog is now boring and worn to no end.

I delivered a couple dozen of them in my town right around the first of the year.

I have found a lot of stores don't like sending out catalogs because cost of paper/shipping so many don't receive theirs, you might just have to request it.

Mine came right after Christmas.  Just got the spring one today.

Ditto on that.

I have mine. It does make for good bathroom reading, but the new catalogs are more and more becoming teasers to make you go online to actually place an order with all the models, sizes, colors, etc only listed there. A sign of the times I suppose...

Yeah, I got one, right around Christmas/New Years. In the mean time I have also gotten about a dozen sales flyers, a marine, a spring angler, and hunting catalogs. They used to send me about 7000 catalogs a year, but I guess the earth is running out of paper, because now I only get like 2000. At least when they used to turbo bomb me, the catalogs atually had the stuff they sold in them, now, it's  basicly a picture of an item and telling you to go to the website to look at the choices............total waste of paper.

I feel like I get some sort of BPS catalog every other day. I actually keep the "newspaper" type adds to help start charcoal- the "magazine" gets tossed with the rest of the junk mail.

720 page advertisement to find their website.

I feel sorry for the guys who don't have or use internet. They only get to pick colors they see.  I agree with most of what has been said, waste of paper.  They could have sent a 4x6 post card saying, go to BPS.com. Go to the library if you don't have internet.

 

WE WANT ALL 46 ROBOWORM COLORS DAMNIT!

I got mine the other day. Odd how they've chosen to do things.

 

I check their site frequently anyhow, so not a huge issue to me. But still, I was shocked at lack of information.

I noticed this starting a couple years ago. I actually liked seeing the specs and colors in the print catalog.  I have a somewhat photographic memory for the written page that somehow doesn't completely translate when the same info is viewed on screen. Sign of the times, indeed...  I love everything online, but I also love how tangible a book is - even of it's just fishing porn. :)

I've had the 2014 Master Catalog for a few weeks.  I got the 2014 Spring Angler catalog yesterday.  Seems like I got a Marine one not too long ago as well.  I did send BPS a pretty polite E-Mail about how I wasn't always at my computer when I had my catalog out and was ready to buy stuff, but I was sure that the people on the other end of the line would be patient with me as I asked lots of dumb questions, that could have been answered with more print information.

 

I never buy rods or reels via a catalog anyway, so missing that information doesn't bug me as much.  I've got to touch and feel a rod & reel before I buy it.  Thank goodness that Cabelas and BPS are within a reasonable driving distance and Rogers is right on the way to work.

Mine came last week. I always page through it but most of my bass gear comes from TW these days. Free shipping, better prices, better selection, and better pics/info make it hard for me to justify buying from BPS

 I don't think I got the master catalog a few days ago - only the Angler version.  Cool thing though is that it came on the same day as a Cabelas fly fishing catalog.  Looking through the Angler catalog I did notice almost every item said to go online for more choices.  I'll admit when I want to buy I usually explore the online sites and rarely look through the catalog.
