Orders are typically shipped within 48 hours of successful check-out. If your order requires special preparation or handling (crating, custom rigging, etc), it may take a few days longer. Our primary goal is to make sure that your order arrives safely. When it comes to proper packing, we don’t cut corners for the sake of expediency.

Orders may be returned within 7 days of receipt for a full refund (less shipping, sales tax, and/or customs charges), provided they’re received in the same condition in which they were shipped to you, have not been tampered with, and are packed in a similar manner, using appropriate packing materials, etc.

For orders shipped to residents of North Carolina, sales tax will be charged at check-out. For orders shipped to residents of other states and countries, no sales tax will be charged. As noted above, however, residents of other countries may be assessed duty and brokerage charges upon receipt of the item.
