Keep in mind that Free Shipping is for retail orders only, and good for USA customers in the 48 contiguous states. Oversize and freight items may require handling charges as stated in the Oversize Package Handling section below. Orders can not be combined to receive free shipping, and may not be applied to previous orders. Gift certificates do not count towards order total.

Oversize Package Handling

There are several instances where oversize charges may be necessary to complete your shipment, typically when there are multiple packages or items that require additional freight charges. These charges will be automatically calculated at the time of checkout based on the rate table shown below. Oversize fees will be assessed once per order based on the largest item. Order as many blanks as you like - you'll only be charged once!

Oversize Rates Table

Rod Blanks

Rod Blanks

9'1" - 11'0" *
Rod Blanks

11'1" and up *

* Package length. Since rod blanks are available in multi-piece configurations, actual shipping length can be calculated by dividing overall length by number of pieces. For example, a 6' (72-inch) rod blank would only be considered oversized if it is 1-piece. The same rod blank in 2 or 3-pieces wouldn't cost any extra.

Backorders & Out of Stock Items

Out-of-stock items are delivered as soon as they become available - free of charge - via US Postal Service or FedEx Ground.

Deliveries Requiring a Signature

To make sure your order reaches you safely, sometimes our carriers require a signature for delivery. Orders over $500 require a signature – the carrier will make three delivery attempts before sending the package back to Mud Hole. If you are not able to sign for your order please call us or place a note in the comments section of the checkout page.
