I've never preordered from them before, any bad experiences? Otherwise they've been great to work with but just wanted to make sure before taking the plunge. I see the 8.1 are still not available for preorder.
I have had many (very) good experiences with Japan Tackle. None bad.

I've always had A+ service from Japan Tackle, including the preorder of reels. 8-)

I preordered reels from them before. When preordering, the prices are pretty good. After the preorder time frame, seem to have higher prices than other JDM shops. The service is top notch though.

What retailer usually has the lowest price? Digitaka seems to be the lowest I can find!

Yes, digitaka is also where I get most reels since prices are low vs other shops, shipping is included, and service is great.
Other JP shops have also provided me with great service.

Digitaka and Japan Lure Shop are usually within a few dollars of each other on final price as JLS is cheaper but add postage and Digitaka is free post. I have had great service from JLS and every purchase of a reel so far has come with a complimentary JDM lure.

What's the one that sends candy/snackfoods? Ichiban maybe?

Which model are you guys buying, 6.3 or 8.1....I'm bit undecided, never had reel with high gear ratio but seeing IPT on 8.1 is more in line with 7.1 reels it does not seem that high. Will be mostly used with lures from 1/8 to 3/8 (cranks, jerkbaits, spinnerbait)
