If I may LG I see a fair number of ads "CONUS shipping only" and wonder why Alaska and to a smaller extent HI is cut off. I get not wanting to ship to Zambia or even Italy (ie EU zone). Would a reply asking if you or any seller would cover the CONUS amount and the other party in Ak cover the additional cost to Alaska be considered "excessive"? I've seen several rigs, and thought it would be nice to have one or more in the shack - only to see the the "CONUS ONLY". The was enough to to deter me even asking. BTW - if the item is shipped via USPS Flat Rate - the cost is the same for all 50 States. Have fun!
