  • Orders normally ship the same business day if received before 2 PM Eastern.
  • All order ship within 1-3 business days. On occasion when we are out of town participating in tournaments or outdoor shows and your order may be delayed until we return from a trip. If additional delays arise, we will email you with information and options.
  • If you want to make certain of availability, expected ship time, or you need an order rushed. Please contact us with your questions or needs. We will be happy to help if at all possible.
