F&t and Mtp. Both have great customer service and fast shipping. I use F&t more because of lower shipping cost, due to the fact they are only 3 hours away from me. You can't go wrong with either of them.

The only one I've used was F&T, and have been very pleased with them. Shoot, I send them questions all the time and get responses back in a timely manner. I wondered how the other places were on prices/shipping as well. I mainly like F&T because of their monthly specials. I know some places have them as well, but they don't seem to be so monthly. Seems like the same thing to me? Maybe I haven't been looking at their site long enough. That's why I ask. I know my dad usually always for stuff from Hoosiers. He tried an order from PCS and that was the biggest POS he has had to deal with. They were straight up terrible.

MTP is becoming my favorite. They are a little higher shipping than what F and T is, but, MTP gives you free gifts per price bracket that you spend. Some brackets come with a free trap(s). Plus, I am not a Clint Locklear fan, and F and T keeps pushing his stuff heavily, so I personally lean away from them.

Up here Ram connection is my choice. Super to deal with and is only 3 hours away. Right along side the US border but only on our side.

MTP has some awesome customer service. I placed a pretty large order with them this winter, they made a couple of minor mistakes, nothing that I was upset over, just an inconvienence. Later on that week I had a gift certificate in the mail.

For online service, I usually go with F&T and Adirondack Outdoor Supply. Adirondack is not that well known but they have some really good prices and excellent customer service. They don't advertise that much so I guess that's how they keep prices down. Locally, I buy from Appalachian Lures in Somerset, PA. They make really good wooden stretchers.
