Product Review Submission Terms & Conditions

Product Review Rules
Each and every review is manually reviewed prior to posting by TackleDirect, which is why there may be a delay between the time a review is submitted and when it is actually live on the website. This may take upwards of 24 hours and is to ensure that product reviews are relevant for other anglers and customers. Each review must meet the following criteria and guidelines:
  1. Inappropriate language of any kind will not be tolerated, and anything that is remotely offensive will be deleted immediately.
  2. Multiple product reviews per product will not be accepted. For instance, reviewing different colors or sizes of a lure will result in only 1 of the reviews being accepted. Spamming product reviews may result in the account being suspended.
  3. Please keep in mind that these reviews are intended to help fellow anglers make decisions on products they may not be necessarily familiar with, the more accurate information provided the better.
  4. Reviews lacking relevant information will not be accepted. Reviews should show that the item has been used and should include why the item is satisfactory or not.
    • Unacceptable Review: "This reel is the best/worst on the market."
    • Acceptable Review: "This reel is the best spinning reel on the market. It is extremely smooth, has plenty of stopping power, casts well, and has held up over the last few seasons without issue."
    • Acceptable Review: "This reel is the worst spinning reel on the market. It is not as smooth as some of the other similarly priced spinning reels, a suspect drag, does not cast well, and has not held up as expected so far."
  5. All reviews are read and moderated to abide by our guidelines. We will reject reviews that include obscenities, discriminatory language, spam content, or critical comments about other reviews or reviewers. Please stay focused on your personal experience with the product or service. Your review will also be rejected if it includes personal contact information or non-TackleDirect URLs.
  6. All product reviews and their information becomes the sole property of TackleDirect, and can be used at TackleDirect's discretion. TackleDirect also reserves the right to delete and deduct rewards points as appropriate for any of the reasons listed above.
