Yeah.. Honey Bros has gone up on shipping significantly in recent months.. I recently needed a couple small items that were significantly cheaper through them & shipping was over 40 bucks.. 6 months ago that same stuff shipped was 26-28 dollars..
Same thing with Gustharts, they went up.. not as bad though on small stuff.. I'm pretty sure you can still get light loads shipped east coast stateside for like 13-15 bucks..
Alot of times i wish gusharts had the items honey bros has & vice versus with the shipping.
Anyhow, I'm in the same boat, although i feel completely loaded down with gear already & things to tangle, i desperately need a Silky Lanyard.. i literally just dropped an hour ago on the very last cut!!! So irritating.. no ground help either.
I'm thinking something retractable, without a doubt.. Is that what y'all are using? Only retractables?
