Retailers and ordering a Dagger Katana 10.4 River Spec (RED)...they have none

Hi All,

Re: Retailers and ordering a Dagger Katana 10.4 River Spec (RED)

As anyone had a similar problem when trying to order a specific item? The retailer website, say they have them in stock, but when you contact direct, they either fail to respond say their is an order time ranging from 6-12 weeks. Of the half a dozen or so I contacted only two replied. What is more frustrating is that you can add to basket, pay and they do not have the item is stock.

Cheers

Contacted them direct, they are going to confirm if they have one in stock. That's the issue, I'm finding. I could have parted with my money into their bank account and have been left with nothing. But thanks for looking.

From a retailers perspective...

We have to commit to orders for canoes and kayaks up to 6-8 months in advance. Its a very hard set of figures to calculate!

General expeience is that when a boat such as the Katana comes in two sizes, three specifications and up to five colours thats a mighty 28 different kayaks to hold in stock in just that one model!

When you then roll that out acorss a range such as Dagger who has 13 models before you go into some options where they have up to four sizes its very hard.

There is monthly production, however if the shop has already pre sold all of their months allcoation it can take 6 weeks to meet if they can get it ibnto the following month. If not, a "new" order sadly can take months.

If your looking at the Katana, maybe also look at the Fusion from Pyranha.

Happy Paddling...
