We also offer the following services to our customers:


Pro Coverage-  A coverage plan we offer on our gear that goes above and beyond the typiical manufacture's warranty.  The idea is to be able to cover your investment, and this coverage is one-of-a-kind!  Not only will it cover manufacturer's defects, it will also cover accidental damage from handling, that's right, it covers accidents!  While we are all careful, this offers you the peace of mind that you will have working gear for the length of tyour plan.  There are two types of plans:


The Replacement plan (items under $200)- If your gear is damaged, all you have to do is call Pro-Coverage to file a claim.  Pro coverage will send you a gear card in the amount you paid (including tax) to come into the store and replace your item. This plan will cover you for two years.


The Repair plan (items over $200)- If your gear is damaged, you'll file a claim with Pro-Coverage, and they will try to repair the item using one of their locally trusted repair centers. Pro-Coverage will pay to ship the item to the repair center, they will pay for parts, labor, and return shipping as well!  If the item requires more than three repair claims, Pro-Coverage will then send you a gear card with the amount you paid (including tax) to come down to the store and replace the item.  This plan has the option for two, three, and up to FIVE years.
