Thanks for the insight. I want to deal with somebody that will be there for me even after the sale.

I will say that Adventure Sports has been in the business for a couple decades and shipped hundreds of kayaks all over the US. I'm sure they would take good care of you.

Dan is talking about his compitition. I am bias, as I have never been to Adventure, but I have delt with Headwaters. Great shop and always available.

IMO, I'd go with Headwaters.....they Support NCKA and Heroes on the Water...and they also organize a very cool Kayak Crabfest event at Doran beach.

Dan and his crew are the best. Lodi isn't that far and they really represent our sport and fundraising efforts. They also have a great social group that fishes all over Northern California. Headwaters gets my Vote!!!!

I bought my t13 from adventure sports and they were great, really great! But... When was the last time they put on a clinic or sponsored a tourney... If  I was gonna do it again I'd  buy from headwaters. They really support our club and sport as well as their customers.

Thanks for the props guys, but lets not turn this into a who's who conversation. It doesn't not feel right to me. The guy asked for advice on if Adventure Sports is reputable and reliable for this transaction and I think he got his answer.

Could not have been said better.
Sometimes in order to move forward you have to take a step back.

Wow,
We know Dan is cool and supports ncka, but the question was about another vender......
If we only shop places that support ncka, why is it that in the last month, I have herd over a dozen referrals for bps and not one for the only company that offers total free events and gives the most prizes.
HELL,
Maybe It's all a waste .........

Adventure Sports had something to do with the Wilderness Systems Ride that was a prize at Berryessa Salmon Slam last year.

I try normally not
To argue on here unless its about substance abuse(lol)

YakHopper, I'm guessing FW gets the majority of support from this forum. I know I go into my FW o. Folsom at least 6 times a month and am greeted with a smile from kat and everyone else who works there. An that is one of the main reasons I go. The prices, well, I'm not going to argue that point.

Happy to buy all my terminal tackle and lures and line and rods etc there.

But kayaks? Honestly, I'd rather support a kayak store. Just like I won't go into a Walmart to purchase a rod. It would be cheaper but that is where I spend my hard earned cash at FW. and will continue to do so.

Sorry sir, hope this is constructive and not argumentative. I totally support your brand.ive got the gear and receipts to prove that.  But for kayaks, well I personally believe that is for the kayak guys to make their living.
