As my local shop I go to "The ZOOM ROOM"

http://www.thezoomroom.ca/

Dan is very helpful and will do his best to find and order you what you want if they don't stock it.  They carry several lines of the bind and fly's and there pricing has always been spot on.

Frequently I call Pinnacle as Ron and Dave are very knowledgeable.

A & J..  I do stop in there when in the area but I don't know them,  Ive seen some bad press... and there prices can swing wildly.

Honestly im cheap and do a lot of purchases through RC-Groups.  Good trader rating system and never a bad deal so far.
