Instead of bashing a dealer lets try something different. Are there any dealers who can get product to NC within say 3-4 days that will provide customer service when needed and have wholesale opportunities? No, I do not make massive orders but I tend to be very loyal to your service. You can email me personally at email@example.com

Sammy - my experiences... I will say that things are a lot better now than they were a year or more ago during the height of the pandemic and supply chain challenges....
GetBit: If an order is placed in the evening, and your are ordering things showing as in-stock (GetBit now has a live inventory feature), I've had them ship out the next day about 80% of the time, and the day after almost the balance. Standard shipping typically gets it to me in the Piedmont area of NC in 3 days tops - so order on Sun evening / early Monday AM and I'll have it Thur or Fri worst case. They have wholesale options.
Voodoo - super fast shipping - almost always same-day (obviously depends on what time of day you place the order, but many times goes out the same day if ordered early enough) - typically 3 days or so to my door. Have a "wholesale program" - based on how much you order and you get credit back for future orders
Swampland Tackle - can't think of a time it did not ship next day - Louisiana based, so generally to my door in NC in 3-4 days tops. Live inventory. Not sure on wholesale program, but has quite reasonable & discounted prices on a lot already
Utmost - Carol and co there are great and generally things ship by next day - only downside for us is getting them to our door in NC can often take 5 days since we're on the opposite coasts.... wholesale available
Mudhole - strong multi-level wholesale program - live inventory - have noticed it being more like 2 days to ship lately - and then default shipping time varies depending on what service they use to minimize cost - some of the FedEx options can be a bit slower by a day or two....
Then there are direct from Mfg depending on volumes...
- Batson - I can order often as late as lunchtime on a weekday and most times will ship that day - and generally things are delivered FedEx 2 day. Every once and a while, and I've not figured out why, some things go FedEx ground and then take 5-6 days... Live inventory
- American Tackle - typically will ship next day and to my door in 2, 3 tops.
Then there is always the "private" builder connections that can help out :)

Thanks for the run down! Some of these folks I haven’t seen in a while and some are new.
