Since the introduction of online auction sites such as ebay almost anything can be bought online including carp fishing equipment. A lot of carp tackle, new and used is sold on these websites and there are many bargains to be had, but caution must be shown as some items are not as good as they may seem.
These sites are very good when you manage to buy yourself a genuine bargain, but many anglers have bought something and unfortunately have found out later that they’ve wasted their money. I will try to advise you on how to find good deals on carp fishing equipment with minimal risk in the next few paragraphs.
There are many things to take into consideration before buying something online, but I will only cover the main ones:Avoid getting getting caught up in bidding wars on auction sites such as ebay. People regularly get outbid and then bid way over the odds, often in the last few minutes of an auction. Before you bid remember to come up with the highest you would be willing to pay for it and do not go over this. If you do get outbid do not worry. A lot of products are on ebay so you will come across it again.
If you come across some carp fishing equipment that seems to good to be true it probably is. Always read the description of the item thoroughly as there may be something wrong with it. Also auction sites are full of scams so make sure the seller has very good feedback before you buy from them.
I’ve already mentioned this but make sure you read the description well. It’s very easy to just look at the pictures without reading, but there may be something wrong with it that cannot be seen. Many sellers leave out certain things from the description so if you aren’t sure email them and get an answer before you part with your money. A common thing is small rips and damage to carp bivvies that sellers are reluctant to list.
I would recommend buying from your local tackle shop or a reputable online store in case anything does go wrong. If that happens you will easily be able to resolve it, unlike if you bought it from ebay. I would strongly recommend going to your local carp fishing equipment shop as you can take any problems straight to them.
