the last of them came in a little while ago and all rods are accounted for
I should be getting them out tomorrow. May very well just use USPS Priority flat rate for everyone, if I have to go there anyway.


I have a spec sheet that shows procedures and clearances. I'll scan it in and post it as able.

All rods were shipped today, USPS Priority with $350 insurance
Shipping was $14.45 for almost everybody, so most people had very small over and underpayments of just a few cents either way. I'll put a spreadsheet together, but it looks like I broke even dead on.

USPS didn't have any of the nice, small flate rate boxes, so most of you got the big boxes. And it was a bitch to get them all packed up; it took a lot of damn packing material. So most of you got a lot of shredded newspaper stuffed in the box to keep everything still. But overall, I spent a LOT of time wrapping each rod up and packing down the boxes. Anyone who's bought something from me can testify that I don't screw around when it comes to packaging.

So everyone not in Canada should get their rods by the weekend. Craig, sorry I forgot to ask how long it would take yours to arrive, but they went Priority so it shouldn't be long.

If you US guys don't get them by saturday, let me know.

glad they're showing up. most of them have a sheet with their weights included.

i'll scan the spec page as soon as i can. my scanner didn't feel like working when i tried the other day, and since i started a new job i haven't had much time.

LOL, the first few I filled with packing peanuts, but I ran out. So each remaining box got stuffed with an entire shredded newspaper. I was lucky that I hadn't put the recycling out yet.
