asian portal fishing

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Just received my first order from them yesterday. Couldn’t find much about them online. There were a few positive comments combined with them accepting PayPal, figured I’d take a shot.

Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Bought an Alphas CT significantly cheaper than I found anywhere else. Ordered on Monday reel got to NY on Friday and is perfect. Will be ordering from them for future purchases.

I have used them before and they seem completely legit. However their refusal to ship 1 part rods to the US drives me away from them. The prices generally excellent, which makes it too frustrating to even look at their site anymore.

Purchased couple reels from them without any issues, fast shipping. Prices are is US dollars so PayPal does not low-ball you with their conversion rate. While they state free shipping over $100, you do get charged handling fee of $4.95.

I have purchased multiple items from this site and have been extremely pleased with the results. They have an eBay presence as well. As I stated in another post, it is a good idea to check both sites on the item you might be interested in before purchasing. I have noticed that sometimes their eBay site is cheaper than their personal site. Normally it is the other way around. Case in point is they are/were selling the Daiwa Ballistic FW 1000 for right at $210 on eBay when on their site it was listed at $258. All in all, I have no complaints about using this site. They do charge a nominal handling fee, but shipping is free over$100 purchases and it arrives in a few days. Everything I have received needs a signature as it is shipped registered mail. I don’t think you will have any problems if you purchase from them.

Has anyone ordered anything lately from Japan? I'm wondering how the shipping is affected by the coronavirus.

So I just got both the reel and the rod at 2:00 pm today. Absolutely fantastic shipping time. Besides the great packing, price, and brand offerings....these items are outstanding and beautiful!!!

I place an order a few days ago for a couple of baits. Unfortunately, I didn’t use EMS, just air packet. It is on it’s way though.
