    Was looking at an AVET LX and some spools on Jerry Brown 100 and 60 on chark bait. I have heard mixed reviews from them (and I'd prefer no comments on whether or not they support fishermen and conservation).

    Do they get legitimate gear? Seconds? before I buy 2500 yds of JB spectra, I want to know I am getting the real thing, none of these ebay fake line spools.

    Never had a problem with any gear that I'd bought from them. They're legit. A lot of people buy from them.

    I have purchased most of my reels from them. they are legit no seconds or tricks. IMO you wont find a safer place to purchase online.

    same here. never a problem in 6 years. even getting a broken rod, they shipped another one immediately.
    as far as seconds, last I ck'd Charkbait was the largest volume Accurate dealer in North America
    nothing bad to say business wise, but a few certain comments of late have caused some concern

    the only thing ive ever had an issue with was a few times i ordered something and wasn't informed that it was on backorder until the item did not arrive (i.e. the invoice said it was on backorder). Would've liked a phone call - but otherwise no complaints. its legit.

    Good people @ Clarkbait.

    Just a few days ago I ordered a bunch of stuff for shipment to me in OZ
    One item was out of stock.
    Received an email enquiring if I wanted another colour or cancel that item.

    The items were then shipped within 24 hrs.

    You simply cannot ask for better service than that.
