Deal On The Stradic Fj 2500!

Recommended Posts

Just saw on Dick's Sporting Goods site they have some 2500 Stradic FJs going for $99!

I don't need one myself, but if you're in the market....

I have 2. One of the best spinning reels you could buy under $200 and for about $100 it is a no brainer.

Bummer that these reels sold out so quickly but it was a pretty killer deal.

 

But if you're a trout angler - you gotta get some of these . . .

I've got to say I'm disappointed with DSG on this one. I got my reel in last night. The reel is new, but it didn't come with the box or warranty papers. Just got the reel, reel bag, schematics card, and those little metal disks. If you're going to sell something as an open box special, then advertise it as so.

That's unacceptable in my opinion.

that's pretty weak, not a deal breaker obviously, but not exactly as you expected to receive....

Say what? That's definitely a deal breaker in my opinion! You order a new reel from a place like DSG it should be unopened brand new in the box period!

definitely hear what you're saying.  only problem is it was $99 on closeout so i'd assume you either live with it (no box or papers) or return it, but you can't expect that they'll have another in stock to ship to you.

honestly, i'd either call their customer service or speak with someone at the store about it and see what they might do for you.

That's interesting and I'll admit, a little surprising.

 

I ordered two which are scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

 

I'm curious to see what shows up.

 

Will pass on whatever it is.

 

More to follow . . . . . ..

It is an interesting revelation.

 

Out of curiosity, did yours (and anyone here

who ordered one) ship out of New Jersey?

 

If they're all coming from different states, it

could be that each store's display model was

the deal - the ones they keep behind display

glass.

 

Still should have been listed as "open box"

IMHO. It is still an incredible deal even so as

these puppies are well over $99 on eBay.

Well, these two launched out of "Detroit".

 

There is no DSP right down town but there are five within 20 miles or so.

 

So I do believe you Sir, may be onto something with the Open Box theory.

 

Either way, I probably would have made this purchase even if they did choose to advertise the fact that the reels we not a sealed box product.

 

And if either of them are for some reason not up to snuff - we'll deal with that then.

I've seen a lot of returned used beat up reels in the display case at my local dsg.

Good deal or not if I ordered a new reel online from a major retailer and it wasn't new in an unopened box I would return it.

I guess I don't see it as bug of a deal. You are getting a 200 reel for 100.  Many people don't keep the box but it sounds like you have everything you needed anyways.  It is still warrantied so if you run into problems you are fine there too.

 

It is part of doing an online sale....if you don't like it then buy it in person, seems pretty simple.

I just checked my tracking. Mine shipped out of Wadsworth, Ohio. 

 

Was it a store model display? I don't know, but I'm doubting that it was. I've seen and even bought a few floor display models from DSG before, and most of them do show/look slightly used. However, the Stradic I received looks flawless. It still had the little paper "C" clip on the handle, as well as the clear rubber elbow cover as well that Shimano puts on all their reels from the factory.
