Reminder - NO Commercial Buy/Selling on Fishwrecked

Hi Gang,

Just a reminder that the Fishwrecked buy/sell forum is for you members to offload your old and unused gear, it is not for online trading for personal gain or profiteering.  Any posting deemed commercial (from a non site sponsor) will be removed

Posts in the buy/sale section will now only stay there for 3 months and we will be removing old content (slowly).

Please support the sponsors that support this site.

Cheers,

Adam

Sun, 2011-11-27 19:16

can i ask why this has been brought up Adam?

does this mean only second hand gear can be sold?

only been on this site for a few months but have noticed alot of gear has been advertised as new in the for sale section.

i have gear unused that i may want to sell as i buy alot more than i need, does this mean i cannot advertise it here?

 

cheers.

JD

umm

Sun, 2011-11-27 21:08

No, it hasn't changed it has been the same since it was posted...

To answer your question, it has popped up due to international and local ebay sellers (store type situations) and others trying to benefit from the strong aussie dollar to the detriment of local stores which I have chosen to support.

Sun, 2011-11-27 21:26

so your saying you dont support fair trading over sponser/your own bennefit?

i guess your right its not like most people cant find everthing any site sponser has to offer cheaper on ebay/eastern states seller.

why support local when you can get the same product %30 cheaper?

site sponsers as much as they are helpful are only filling their pockets, excuse me for being a realist.

Whats that written as your signature then: I LIKE TO SUPPORT LOCAL come of it... hahaha

my signiture is a joke

Sun, 2011-11-27 21:50

my signiture is a joke because of bad local experiences......

local may have the info but they just want the $.

 

i will still support local and theres still some site sponsers i hav'nt used yet but the ppl i have used off here have left a bad taste and to me are just arrogent priks with a $ agenda, most people over look this because they get 5 mins of attention.

this is just my opinion and if you find your local helpful all the best to you.

will change my signature to i support bargains and fair trading if it makes you happy.

 Look, apologies if I sound

Sun, 2011-11-27 22:27

 Look, apologies if I sound attacking, while I'm not .... The issue is this is business to these sponsors, as opposed to a hobby for you and me. The idea is we spend alot of money on tackle and fishing gear, and kind of forget who to blame ... To be honest with you, I like saving money as much as I can (have 3 kids ;) but at the end of the day, it's up to me where I spend my money.

your tackle shack orientated

Sun, 2011-11-27 22:45

your tackle shack orientated right sherb?

when i can get down that way im more than happy to support you guys but atm its not possible for me to frequent your local.

i take offense to the what you think is me increasing my tackle at a detriment to our country.

if you can match prices i find anywhere for the place you shop or anywhere local and has in stock im more than happy to buy it.

feel free to deliver it to my door also.

do you not work hard for your $?

why give away more than you have to?

am i wrong in thinking this way?

i will buy local...

i will buy bait....

i will also catch my own bait as im sure you do so are you noy supporting local?

people in glass houses should not throw stones.

I understand where everyone

Mon, 2011-11-28 00:32

I understand where everyone is coming from here while all valid points .There is no need for all the bickering and bullshit . You can buy local or buy of ebay its your choice .At the end of the day all Adam has done is stood by the sponsors of the website , all of who keep Fishwrecked going for everyone to enjoy FREE. no membership fees or any other shit like many other sites, plus we get great discounts and bargains at site sponsors just for being fishwrecked members. Bit of respect is all thats really needed. And if i dont mind saying everyone in the world is out to make a dollar its called Living.

Yes; I agree

Mon, 2011-11-28 07:21

Sponsors need to be respected. This should not be a place for opportunities to make a buck as an individual, it should be seen as a community notice board IMO.

Welcome to the world of free trade people.  Some of the gear we buy can be quite expensive and therefore there are advantages/opportunities to save a lot of dosh by shopping around locally and overseas. The sponsors here get good mileage from their advertising and promotions and my experience generally is that most here at least know who the sponsors are. Whether they choose to support them or not is another issue. Price and quality of service come first for me.

Yep support your site sponsors.  I shop at All boats and the range they have is tops and Luke R and the others make sure they look after the FW members. The Tackle shack 40% sale great stuff, I bet there is some happy fishers who went down over the last few days. At the end of the day I come out saving dollars and am happy with what I have got And if I have a problem with the product I just take it back .

Mon, 2011-11-28 09:39

support your local and they will support you! to be honest its kinda wearing thin the amount of people winging that there arnt enough jobs in aus or that the prices are to high etc but what the fark do you expect when every one is sending there money over seas .... we cant afford to employ someone if there is no money left in that feild of work..... also people have got to put into the equasion of buying overseas that warrenty does not apply .... its kind of funny the amount of people who bring in reels etc that have a fault and ask for a warrenty or free of charge fix ... when we say no it will be at your expense ( $20 post , insurance on the item , service fee and then parts) the spit it and say that we are all w#$%kers etc for lack of customer service when in reallity they were the ones that came in and took an hour of a staff members time only to go buy overseas !!!! think about it in the long run you will be better off buying local,

Online - not necessarily overseas

Mon, 2011-11-28 10:11

I take your point Brenz and hey, you are so right. The whole scenario of retail shopping has changed greatly and people are looking to save a buck and take the hassle out of face to face shopping. It's quite clear that small business is suffering as a result. People like the TackleShack try their very best by having specials and events and good on them. I guess the problem I have is how can it be that for a few days in a period I can buy equipment at 40% off and if I miss that opportunity I have to pay the full price. It makes me wonder what the real price of an item is. I also then wonder how the store can sustain events at such huge discounts. Shopping around I can generally find that bargain at any time of the year without even leaving home. Yep; I'm as slack as the next bugger in line.

I do most of the work on my vehicle. Why? Firstly, I can save heaps by sourcing components and service kits over the internet. My stuff comes delivered from QLD or SA at WAY less than I can buy them here. Secondly, I am sick of the premadonna service outlets telling me I shouldn't do this or I shouldn't do that. It's the same in tackle stores... Oh we don't recommend that brand... next store says exactly the opposite. I am also sick of these people telling me I shouldn't take notice of forum information bacause it is all wrong. Sure a lot of info provided in posts can be wrong, bias, or unfounded but I take all info as I see it and fully respect the views of some of the very learned people here. Surely they can't all be right (or wrong).

I guess the thing that will keep me shopping locally for a lot of stuff is that I get excited when I finally decide to make a purchase and I can't wait for something to arrive. I WANT IT and I WANT IT NOW! LOL.

Look at the small shops

Mon, 2011-11-28 10:51

That have fell by the wayside, Cos of big chain stores

Maybe you guys will like to have only bcf stores to shop at, With all the other small fishing shops closed down

Then shops like bcf will have the pick of the market, And thay will name the price

As from online stores and cheap gear and waiting 28days and longer, Give them time to get big orders in and buy bulk / And thay dont have to have them sitting on the counter getin dust on them,

And not havin to pay up front like small stores have to do

Plus not having people waiting at the counter to look after you, And sell you the right gear for the right job first time

 

When this happens I hope you all feel good about yourself

its a simple situation really

Mon, 2011-11-28 10:55

 site sponsers help keep the site alive, thereby allowing you to enjoy it.

As a result the site sponsors get dibs on advertising, same as anything else whether it be a footy match or car racing.

Without the site sponsors what would happen to the site ?

It dosent say you have to buy from them, but they are still getting the advertising.

At the end of the day, if you dont want to play by the rules, then find another playground.........

Not sure a lot of stick being given Steve

Mon, 2011-11-28 11:25

There is the odd negative comment but I think most that has been said here today supports you and commends sponsorship and the support of such. Like any forum, when a topic is raised it will stimulate input, some good and sadly, some not so. Don't be too annoyed Steve. People have a right to their opinions. I remember there was a time when I refused to shop at the tackleshack because the previous owner was what I considered a rude prick! Since then I have made a number of purchases there and know where they are. That's because new owners etc made me feel welcome. Sponsorship whilst welcomed is only part of the business. Sponsorship of this site however is essential. Keep up the good work.

This is is going bit off

Mon, 2011-11-28 11:53

This is is going bit off topic.

At the end of the day these guys are paying to sponsor this site, it's perfectly reasonable for them to get the hump with Adam if someone is undercutting their business on this site just as it is perfectly reasonable for Adam to then do something about it.

It's hardly the fascist scenario that Jamos is painting it to be and nor is it the end of days scenario Steve is putting forward.

At the end of the day it doesn't take much for someone to spend a couple of minutes on google to find what they want as things are way too expensive in WA, mainly down to greed.

At the same time, the idea of chain stores dominating the retail space like in UK is not very appealing either.

Comes down to the individuals choice I suppose, don'tbsee why that choice needs to be critised though.

I agree with Sherbs , I

Mon, 2011-11-28 13:21

I agree with Sherbs , I mainly try to buy my gear from local stores. Chain stores are shit in so many ways, crap service, little knowledge, crappy mainstream products, higher prices . Then you have a place like Ocean Side. Great service , endless amounts of knowledge and advice about all of Western Australia. , specialist range of products which chain stores dont have nor even know what you are talking about if you ask them , discounts for being a fishwrecked member , these people actually give a shit about what products your using , the price your getting , and your overall satisfaction, and are willing to spend the time going through products there features , strong points bad points, etc.  So why wouldnt you go local for majority of your fishing tackle. If you wish to buy of ebay for some items thats fine just dont do it over fishwrecked. The Best thing about this awesome fishing website is it is a free library of knowledge on fishing so sponsors have the right of way IMO. Not a big deal imo easy to follow guidelines.

You may pay a few extra $ for a product, but the years of experience and knowledge most small businesses share with their customers is often worth its weight in gold.

Mon, 2011-11-28 16:17

My local tackle store is brilliant & without their presence I would hate to see the state of our rec fishing here, do you really think CBF & the likes would support our cause??

When in Perth I have had great service from tackleshack & oceanside as well as other independents who don’t sponsor the site & out of respect won’t name (shame that I also had some utterly shite treatment from one other & again out of respect to the site won’t name)

In essence support your local independent as they support you!

I don't care that my overheadcost me $30 more from my local than E-bay, beacause they also gave me free advice and passed on knowledge that would have been a long time coming if left to my own devices. And while I'm here, my Extreme Cooler is the best I've owned and at half the price of the on-line retailers.

Off topic alright, I wasn't even going to allow members to post, guess I know why now.  It is now locked, thanks for the input from a few of you, summed up why I posted it.

It is very simple, I don't think I need to explain it anymore - if your posts are gone from the buy/sell, then you know why.

Cheers,

Adam
