I am fed up with stamina, they never have what you want in stock and they also take for ever to get items out.
I placed a order 2 weeks ago and it still has not shipped.
I even called like 10 days ago and they said it would ship next day.
I placed a big order with only needing the 3-D lure eyes but I orded a ton of other stuff because I was ordering.
This is not the first time I have had this problem with them
Were else can I buy 3-D lure eyes ?

Cabela's has 3-D eyes 1/4" 3/8" 5/16" & 5/32" if any of those are the size you need. They are $2.99 per pkg. I order from them all the time and I get my orders between two & five days. Hope this helps.

Kim at Lurecraft has the best prices on the eyes (in 100 quantity)

I ordered with them for the first time @12/10/07. 3-D Eyes, 4/0 treble hooks and skirts.
I didn't get the order, so I finally contacted them. They said it went out next day Priority Mail. Went to my PO yesterday and there it was in the back. It was the Post Offices fault that it was late, but when I got it home there was no 3D Eyes..Sold Out!
Can't blame them for the delay, but I too ordered mostly for the eyes.

Yes they need to put out of stock on the website, sucks when the items you want they do not have and they do not tell you.
They have not charged my credit card so I know they did not ship yet.
What size are LC, they offer 2.5 and 4.0
I like the option of sizes and colors barlows have.

I don't like having items substituted and not knowing until receiving the order; they're not as fast as Jann's, but they've been a dependable source for me for several items, and they have a wide selection with bulk pricing on a lot of items. While I wish they carried a bit deeper inventory, they'll remain to be a dependable source for me. It is also always easy for me to find someone there to talk with if the need arises.

This subject has been discussed before. I understand your feelings but with respect, I think that you are being a tad hard on them. If they sent the goods out in batches of what was available, then who is going to pay for the extra shipping, are they supposed to eat it. Also, when you place the order, they assume that you wanted everything on the list. With large or complex orders, you should make it clear on the order and/or back it up with phone calls, that if something is missing then cancel that component from the order and you will get it next time.
Maybe the order firms should add another box indicating priority. If high priority is ticked, the item must be delivered, if low priority is ticked, it can be omitted.

I always put in there comment box if somethings not in don't hold order.
I also find it in VERY bad taste for some poeple to constantly rip vendors in a public forum for mistakes, it seems to me that posts like this Plaster of Paris up alot from the same individuals

I think they use the same pony I use to ship stuff!!!

i use stamina a lot as they have reasonable shipping rates to the UK,i now also put in the comment box for them to contact me if something is unavailable so i can substitute it or cancel it,it does seem though that out of stock item's are becoming more common

vodka, I did follow up with a phone call, and they said they would ship what they had the next day, that was 10 days ago.
All I really wanted was the eyes, I spent about 1 hr figuring out what else to get to find out they did not even have the eyes,
I wasted my time and now they wasted 2 weeks of mine.
Will I order from them again ? NOPE

I've never been happy with delays from Stamina but they have items (especially some spoons, treble hooks) I can't find elsewhere. Jann's Netcraft has many similar items and much better service. When I place a Stamina order, I try to forget about it and hope it shows up eventually - it usually does.

Bad customer service should be flammed, there is no excuse for it. I haven't ordered from Stamina in two years because the service was so poor.

Sorry for your problem.... I am sure it is very frustrating.....
I had a problem with them once..... One phone call and it was fixed.... with an apology....... and no excuses.... I have ordered and will continue to order from them.....
Best of luck.........

The free market system is great isn't it. You can do business with just about anyone whom will take your money for good or services. I am just a hobby kind of guy and don't sell product or delivery schedules to meet. I like the varity of stuff I can get from Stamina and haven't had the problems others have.
Posted 31 December 2007 - 03:46 PM
I e-mailed them and told them to cancel my order,
Here is the e-mail I got back.
I cancled you orde for you. Sorry for the why you feel. We try to kept thing in scok.

Placed a order for eyes 3 weeks before x mas, Got 100 eyes out of 4000 I ordered. I resolved this problem by making my own 3 d eyes. Plus my colors are not limited. Now I cant blame anyone but myself.Its cheaper and just adds to the hand made value.

Well with shipping charges on 100 you got took.
Any chance you would like to share your eye design and pics ?
