Well i happen to order from two different online shops for two different point blank blanks , get bit and anglers workshop.. anglers workshop did say 2 to 3 weeks which i noticed after ordering , getbit on the other hand didn't tell me it was a back order product until after i paid :/ :( .... What's my eta on each of these from y'all's experience?

IT's not like there are worldwide manufacturing delays

Blank delays are nothing new to the industry. It's always been faster to order and spend the money than get the product.
In short, days to months, I've had both over 35+ years. After all, you did buy something produced on the other side of the Pacific.

I'm not complaining about it being out of stock what i don't agree with is charging my account then telling me the day after that they don't have it in stock and don't know when it will be and have ignored my request for cancellation. . . That's not good business in my opinion.

Anglers workshop responded and cancelled my blank order so the above complaint is only with getbit

Always nice if you can see they have something in stock before you commit to it. Take order, collect money, put it on backorder.

I've had that happen to me and I don't like it one bit either . A buyer should expect for something to be in stock unless it specifically states otherwise , period.

I had a an order from Getbit for a few rods worth of Fuji guides. One #8 was backordered but the email went to the spam folder and I missed the notification. The entire order was held. Once I contacted them they did very well to work with me on sending the partial order.

They would be wise to invest in live inventory on their site.
