Well said, Ted. I've seen some folks complain about just about every vendor as well, so some folks can never be happy, no matter what.

Weird. I just tried to go to Stamina online, and my computer said the website could not be found.

What is WTP?

It's a name of a company (like dampeoples replied to your post) that sells holographic film, along with supplying, Stamina, Barlows, Jann's and probably everyone else with 3D eyes. Check out their prices and their site. http://www.wtp-inc.com/home.html

I ordered from them over 3 weeks ago and then got an email telling me that some trebles were out of stock (I'd asked them to notify me so that was good). I declined them sending me an alternate product and to ship the rest of the order. I haven't heard or seen anything since. No one answered the phones between Christmas and New Year's Day--closed? No emails replied to either. I'll check to see if my CC was billed.

Cadman,I totally agree with ya there.I will still order from them in the future.The problems I have previously had with the eye orders are why I was hitting them all at once to bulk up.Thanks for the other site,didnt know it existed!( People waiting on lures from me because of supplies is just like us waiting on stamina for eyes//// It's a supply issue.We all do what we can.)

It was not my intention to isolate you out of the crowd. It's that there are other sources out there to solve many of our dilemmas. In your case you didn't know, and that's all fine we all learn. Yes you're right, that many eyes is a big order for Stamina. Did you check out the link I posted for the 3D eyes and stick on tape? They will have all the colors you need. Only problem is that you have to buy by the thousand lot. I just think since this forum has so many talented people, everyone of us can help each other out. Just by posting our questions to the TU gurus, or doing a search on TU's site. Someone here will always help.

I agree with Cadman..I always call my order in..That way I know what is in stock or out..I've had very few problems with them doing it this way..Nathan

I Googled staminainc, and found them again.

I've ordered stuff from them over the last few years, and, other than some things being out of stock, never had a problem.

They hadn't billed my CC yet so I decided to cancel my order. Telling me that it was ready to ship two weeks ago and then not even shipping it is not acceptable nor is the fact they didn't reply to 3 emails about it. Slightly lower prices aren't worth the hassle.

I don't base a business off my orders to Stamina, I've used them about 6 times over the past 4 or 5 years.

If I was running a business, I would look a little harder at getting a better pricing on big volumes. I might also have different accounts with several companies, just because I may want to setup my accounting with payables and recievables, rather than COD evert order.

If you can't hang with the big boys, I guess you need to stay home. I would probably never mention to the world I was having supply problems, makes folks think you can't habdle the volume... JMHO

I totally agree with you on this. I never ever let my customers think that, I'm and idiot and don't stock enough product to finish the job. It looks exactly as you said, you either can't handle the volume, or you are very un-organizeded. To say the least, it looks very un-professional. Everything that I make, I stock a lot of hooks for. I will say that once in a while, I do have a new customer that wants something special, that I never have made. I tell them up front what I can do to help them, and how long it will take to get molds, hooks whatever. You know what, I have never had a customer, up and leave and say sorry I'll look elsewhere! You have to be prepared for anything that comes along. I believe I have a very good customer clientele relationship, and I make sure I keep them happy. You :censored: off the same customer a couple of times, and you can kiss him goodbye. I always look into any customer problems, and try to find an amicable solution. This market is too competitive, and you don' want to lose customers.

What usually happens (I think) is the url does get pasted but in a font color that you can't see on your screen until you post the reply. Happens to me all the time.

I think the same thing cadman said applies to stamina,If you cant play with the big boys stay home,They have dropped the ball on numerous occations with me and my friends,were just hobbiest but if I had a biz they would not be on my list,just my 2 cents,

Sorry guys if you ordered eyes from me and they were out of stock. I have now taken care of that. With everyone getting eyes for swim baits the manufacturer was backed up too. I have size 5's and 6's now - new for 2008. I will also be selling the min smaller 20 count packages for the guys who just want a few.
