Be on the look out.

With the masses pulling out of China due to the tariff war/battle looming, just got notification ocean freight cost from Thailand to the east coast has gone up 60+% effective immediately. I'm sure other countries/companies will follow suit. If I'm not mistaken there is a good number of gear companies that bring there product in from Thailand. Or from what I have seen. Might see the gear side of the industry take a significant price increase or see production become hard to get until they find other suppliers/manufacturers.

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Which "masses" are pulling out of China?

From whom did you hear that ocean freight cost went up 60%? Why are you the first to mention this ahead of the mainstream media and others? How did yz25 get such information?

Which gear companies have you seen that ship from Thailand? Please list them. Thank you.
