Anyone here ever order from them? If so, about how long are their shipping times.

Japan to US.

A little while ago(when the Hedgehog spool pin remover was brand new) I ordered a reel and the Hedghog tool from Japan Tackle. I ordered some terminal tackle from Cabelas the same day.The order from Japan beat the Cabelas order by three days.

EMS delivery is usually 3-5 days.

You never know with international delivery.  

I have had shipments coming from Asia (Japan,China,Philippines,Indonesia) 2 times a month for the last 7 years, sometimes it's fast and sometimes it's not.  Most packages arrive in about 2 weeks, I've gotten them as fast as 6 days and as slow as 4 weeks.  Whether it's EMS, CP, or RR delivery a package can get held up at the local post office in their sorting facility.  Once it clears the sorting facility the package goes into US customs which also can take some time.  Once it goes thru customs the package then is at a US post office sorting facility, again the package can sit there too.  At that point USPS delivers the package.  I experience the same procedure for my European packages.  I have had well over 100 shipments and they can arrive pretty fast, or it can be pretty slow too especially when getting close to the holidays.

I recently ordered a spool from them. If I recall correctly, it took under a week.

The problem is not how much time Jun takes to process your order, you order today and he ships tomorrow ( unless it´s a holiday and he always notifies when it´s a holiday or if he´s going to be out for vacation and so ) the time it takes for your order to arrive is variable and it´s not his problem, most shipments will take around two weeks. If you are in a hurry you can have him ship by UPS or FedEx but that´s a lot more expensive than EMS.

 

I have to say one thing about Japantackle, normally he is the most expensive but also, normally he has items nobody else has. Another good source for JDM reels is JapanProFishing, Ichibantackle has some good things too.

Thanks Raul, I checked JapanProFishing per your suggestion. They didn't have the Scorpion 200. I ordered from JapanTackle.

They had it on sale for $169.00. Now, just have to wait for it to arrive. Thanks guys for all the info. Now I won't have to panic if it doesn't show up in just a week. Yet I can still hope it does. But why should I be in any hurry. Can't go fishing till Spring anyhow....lol.

Of course that Mexico´s Post office and customs is not like USPS, I have waited a month a half for my things to arrive.

 

Another good source for tackle is Plat.jp, I´ve purchased a couple of reels and several 2 piece rods with them, excellent service too.

 

Just one clarification when ordering stuff now, Japan is not like US where you have gear available all year long, in Japan manufacturers cease production for the winter months so a lot of products are not available until they restart production in the spring. Once I ordered a couple of rods the first week of November and waited until late March. I do have to say that the wait was worth every second.

Just got a package from Japan Tackle today, it took 5 days. I've ordered from him twice and both times it took less than a week. I picked up a Yumeya BFS spool for my Curado 51E and two different types of Shimano grease. Now I just need to order a BFS rod, hopefully soon.

I always use the registered shipping and it takes about two weeks. They ship within a day of placing the order unless it's a holiday, and you have to consider their holidays there also. My packages almost always arrive at LAX in about 2-3 days, then sit in customs there for almost a week.

Saw you ordered the scorpion in the other thread. Congrats!

They shipped fast like 5 days or so. But they require signature so if your not home you may have to go to usps to pick it up with the tag they leave on your door.

I just bought the same spool for my XT1000 and it's going on a Loomis CR721.

Thanks John, yes that's what all the guys are saying. Won't be a problem, since this time of year I'm always home. To cold to fish, but you can bet that when I get that reel, I will fish somewhere.

Yokohama. Japan has Prefectures. I believe a Percecture is a district that is within a City. If you go to the Japan EMS Site and enter your Tracking #, it will tell you the Perfecture that it was shipped from.

Japan's prefectures are more like our states. A long time ago, I lived for over a year in Yamaguchi prefecture.

This thread is quickly becoming the Yellow Pages of where to spend your money in cool JDM stuff. So far how many "new" ( or well not new to some of us ) JDM retailers have appeared ? 4 ? well, I also have e-bay dealers. :eyebrows:

 

Right now I´m flat broke, I need to save cuz I "need" a few of those SV spools for my TDZs.
