Set Up Decision Made-Problem Acquiring It.

Recommended Posts

Guys, I have decided on a punching set up, it will be a Duckett Set up, Rod and reel, but the only agent in South Africa only stocks certain models and they cant get the set up that I want, any suggestions what I could do to get this set up?

Special order through the agent or online order through anyone who sells what you want and ships internationally.

I have contacted Duckett's direct a couple days ago, no response as  yet. Tim Kelly, do you by any chance have names of shops that might export to us if i place an order with them?

Tackle warehouse, bass pro, cabelas, most of the bigger US retailers will ship you stuff. The shipping costs are usually horrendous though and you get caught for taxes and other duties once it arrives in your country, but it can be done. You want to contact the Duckett importer in your country, not Duckett USA, and ask them to get whatever it is you want that they don't have to be included in their next shipment form the USA. That way it should be a little cheaper and you should be able to get whatever warantees they're offering as it was bought through them.

I have contacted our importer of Duckett, they gave me some excuse said they cant bring the rod and reel in that i want. But i will have to bite the bullet and Im going to buy it through Bass Pro Shops.

Importers usually are the weakest link. Makes me furious how much of a premium we have to pay for electronics here in the UK. We can use the exact same units sold in the US as most people are happy with measurements in feet and use English, but we have to pay a ridiculously inflated price for the option of measurements in meters and the option of a load of European languages if we want any kind of customer support. I have always bought my electronics from the US and taken the chance on it going wrong, but it's too high a poker stake to buy a nice side imaging unit and risk it being a dud, so I'm still using a monochrome display Humminbird.

I'd try tackle warehouse before bps. I'm in the states and even avoid ordering from them. They add a handling charge and their shipping is a tad high to me.

Just a question, but for the money you're going to spend in shipping, would it be possible to get a custom rod made, somewhere close to where you live?  I'm just a Missouri boy, and I got no clue about what is and what ain't available in Durban, South Africa, but I still think that it is a fair question.

I will try Tackle Warehouse,thanks rippin-lips!! Fishes in trees, I agree with you, just there is some guys that make rods here, but not to bad mouth the guys in South Africa, their quality is poor compared to the States, poor workmanship etc. And they always have some excuse to not give you what you want, never aimed at Supplying good customer service! Why do you think all our Pro Fisherman here use only imported and US made brands and other well known Non South African brands.
