Just looking at this website(dealsonthefly.com) and the have a different deal every day but there is no info about them really, Heck it dont even say where they are located. Has anyone ordered from this site? Or is it a scam?

Thanks Eric

I've never used them, but the deal they have on their right now is innacurate. The boot they show in the picture is the freestone, which is a $129.00 boot retail, and they are saying it's the guide model, and claiming it retails for $189 so who knows what your actually getting.

I blew an e-mail in to them, based on Joe's remark, and he did come to the conclusion there was a snafu. Changed the pic and the price. Check it out now.

Similar to all of the sites run by backcountry.com: steepandcheap.com, tramdock.com, etc. Those sites do a whole bunch of items each day though. I'd love to see a site like these that did the same volume for fly gear. It'd be a helpful way for fly shops to get rid of sticky inventory.

I think the issue is getting enough stuff to be able to make it worthwhile. You need to have a certain number of jackets or pairs of boots or whatever to make something like this fly. For most of the "deal a day" type sites, I think they get the lions share of their products from the manufacturers themselves, or at the very least distributors or perhaps big box retailers. Fly shops supplying onesy-twosy old stock items wouldn't work I don't think.
