We are well under ways getting all the photo and video work completed for our visual Marketing of the new Fishzone range of rods and good they are looking too. I have just bought for myself the full set of Akita Japanese boat rods. Class ranging from 8-12lbs, 12-20lbs, 20-30lbs and 30-50lbs is the only one I haven’t got just yet but it will be here before the wrecking season gets going and regular trips aren’t cancelled.
I digressed there as this post is about the new travel rods, when I first took one out of the case and started to assemble it I noticed the spigots wouldn’t allow the section to slide all the way along it. I was nearly tempted to get some wet and dry and ease it so they closed up but then I thought best speak to the company boss who imports them.
Good job I didn’t get the wet and dry out as the rods are finished that way for the very simple reason it allows the joints that are continually being made to bed themselves in over a period of time. Now if I had eased them then the obvious will happen and even I didn’t think about it at the time, if they fitted perfectly from new then a few years down the road they will have become very loose and allow sections to twist so some clever forward planning has already allowed for this, “Clever These Japs Eh !!”
Here are a couple of images showing you what I am talking about:
How do you ship your products ?? good question and pleased to answer this one as it’s so important to us to get your order to you in pristine condition. Here is an example of one of our travel rods waiting to be shipped as you can see our packaging is designed so transit damage can only result in very poor handling in transit.
We ship via the Royal Mail or selected carriers we have used for some time so we know they get the goods to you in a timely manner. On occasions we have to ask for a contact telephone number which by the way we don’t store on file or sell it on to these annoying phone sales companies, same with any of our customers details including email address.
So if you are concerned about will your order not arrive or arrive in tatty old packaging the be assured it certainly won’t leave here like that.
The Bass fishing lures sections have been updated to offer more choice in how you want to purchase either loose, colours, amounts or with and without the trace added for you to be able to tie your own. Don’t forget if you’re buying a number of items contact us before checking out so we can look at discounts and better shipping rate for you.
Eddystone artificial eels images have been in the new store for a while and we have now added a video so you can see them in action and the product in more detail. Eels are available loose any colour and size or in packets (blisterpacks) and you can buy them ready to fish out of the bag again as single items or in bulk.
Mid channel wrecking trip planned for Sunday 22nd January 2012 now cancelled took one look at the UK weather this morning and went back to bed ! if you look at the image and the projection for Portland you can see why this time of the year boat fishing is a gamble at the best of times. My thoughts always go to the skippers of the charter boats, as anglers we just get depressed because the weather screwed our day out on the briny, what about the skippers it screws their living up and incomes.
So when I think about them I don’t feel so bad and just get the diary out and find another date and good tide. Take a look at this for a weather forecast.
The first of the new range of reels from FishZone are now on video so you can see the full specification to view exactly what you’re buying and once you have seen the movie you will see why we are excited about these. More up soon including the new rods.
