...You're right, if it is listed on a site, it should be in stock.

...Too many shops fall foul of the obvious and it annoys a lot of people.

...But there are many shops that are excellent too, many have been named on here in the past.

As Gingert has said, in this day and age, stock control should not be a problem.

...Hence why I ring a shop and get them to physically check for me if item(s) I require are in stock, before I order. If not. I spend my money elsewhere.

It's not the perfect solution I agree, but it does stop most of the nonsense.

.....So are you saying it's Preston's fault? ....Fosters sod the order up, and it's someone else's fault
and how many orders do you think they get for the same item in a week...I ain't saying it's any bodies fault I've comment on it cos I know what every tackle shop owner whines about about Preston and Xmas ..it's only the same as Tesco online shopping and the amount of substitutes you get delivered

I have used Foster's a lot and on the two occasions they had items out of stock I had a call from them within an hour or so to let me know and offer an alternative or refund.

out of stock items REALLY pi$$ me off... the wife ordered me a Korum Compact Ruckbag for Christmas and it was showing in stock on the website (not Fosters I might add) and after it didn't arrive in time she phoned the tackle shop, only to be told it was out of stock.... it really annoys me when they do this... by taking the order they are just ensuring that no-one else gets the sale and they don't care how long you have to wait

ebay has some too if you cant get to a shop, the best ones are feed syringes, you can tell because like in the video they have a purple plunger, they are designed for repeated use rather than once only of syringes for injections

The thing with this is if you have a large store that sells direct to the public and also an on line business you cannot keep separate stock for each. Therefore if someone on line orders a certain reel which according to their records is in stock as it's still on the shelf in the shop and a customer in the actual shop picks up the last one before the on line section gets to it then they will have to then go back to the on line customer and tell them they no longer have any. If that makes sense. I would think that until the store customer pays for the reel it shows as still in stock. The moment it is checked through the till it is deducted from the stock holding.

From talking to my local shop, the tackle trade ( & Preston in particular ) are devils for advertising something new, before the've any stock at all, & seeing what pre-orders they get, presumedly before ringing china & telling them how many to make, which is also very annoying.

I did the same but the cheap wine vacuum pumps don't hold the pressure like the original Ringers one did so you have you pump loads of times or use the bung.
