tackle prices are decent here. It just depends on what you want. Right now some dealers are offerning 25% discount on tackle. they are dealers for Penn here in the UAE. Anyone interested, PM me & I'll mail you the link of the shop.
The reels available here are chinese made & cheaper than those available in the USA. I usually order my abu, penn reels from the USA & although the reels from the USA are now (practically all) Chinese, the quality somehow seems to be better.
Rapalas, yo-zuri & kastmasters are easily available here & reasonably priced.
I buy my lures in lots from Australia, singapore or HK. Shipping is expensive but works out cheaper in lots.
