*** I could not believe my eyes, I stumbled upon a BNIB Saltiga Z40 by a 100% positive feedback seller Ottostackleworld in Australia. Pricey at $542 US dollars but well worth it IMO, I pulled the trigger. Still in disbelief after my payment I asked seller: "is this listing for the Saltiga Z40?" Two days later I got my answer: "yes, it is for the Saltiga Z40, regards Jay" so...I did not mess up, I got the confirmation, it was not a typo error in the listing.

*** Another day or so went buy... and I got a message thru eBay saying:

*** Take notice: message had an attachment offering me an alternative: the new and cheaper Saltiga model, mind you a commonly available reel and readily available for $389, by no means a rare find and much less desirable trade off, I immediately declined the unreasonable offer and placed a dispute with my credit card co. I got my refund.
This morning I got a surprise, not only did Ottostackleworld re-listed the Saltiga Z40 but now they added: (1) sold (1) available. Therefore no listing error since this listing was altered to read: they had 2 and 1 remained available (original listing said: 1 available and after my purchase it said: "none remaining")
What gives? Now they have two? Is another potential buyer going to pull the trigger only to be told "sorry we made a listing mistake" and be offered the late model as an alternative?
Needless to say very disappointing with what looks like a bait and switch.

I’ve always heard good things about them.I've satisfactorily purchased many items from Australia and will continue to do so.

I saw the same listing two weeks ago. It had a different picture. What gave it away is a bnib z40 comes with the adjustable handle. I've always been a firm believer in showing the actual product just to be certain. I'm shocked since they sell a lot and have good feed back. That's a shame.

So is not like they "just made an error as they claim" they have this eBay listing for weeks... and after my experience and opening a dispute in eBay, Ottostackleworld CONTINUES TO RUN THEIR Z40 listing in eBay, actually they run two similar adds.

Yup. That wasn't even the same pic the first time. It looked like the newer saltiga's with a z40 title. Shady business brother.

Since the beginning of the year they’ve changed . Once shimano told them they couldn’t sell to America .. they turned into hustlers

That is lame, sounds like they are trying to scam someone who hasn't done their research. I ordered from their website earlier this year with no issues, super fast shipping, well packaged. Leave negative feedback if you can.

It doesn’t make any sense, they have great ratings, so I went ahead and shelled out my $544 dollars, only to be told “we can send you the new Saltiga” the new 40 which alpha2omega sells in eBay for $389 and free ship. Their bait and switch add still up in eBay, what gives?

Lmao nah man!!! The passion runs deep bro! I search for a bunch of things on Ebay but saltiga takes the top spot!
I check Saltiga 30T and Saltiga SA40 in eBay at least twice a day. I'll buy them all if I could.

Like Nick above said that's probably mistake I bought probably 15-20 reels from them and never had problems at all and will continue buying with confidence

there are better sellers than them over here I use them occasionally but find that Davos Tackleworld is quite often cheaper and faster in their delivery.
