Interesting, they also have a up and going Facebook and Twitter site. Strikes me as a 'poor mans' "Overstock.com?"
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.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 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.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.
