Thanks once again to Wackerbait & Tackle


Recommended Posts

When I arrived from work today, my "special" order from Wackerbait & Tackle had arrived.....everything was in great shape due to very good packaging (certainly not for UPS taking great care of it of course) and I am VERY happy with my Fox purchases.....what did I get ? thought you would never ask.

One - Fox FX 13' 5 rod holdall (not for the rods below, but for long road trips to protect my expensive 13' rods)

Two Fox 9' Stalker rods (2.75TC)

Two Fox 12' Stalker rods (2.25TC)

One Fox 12' Float rod (1.50TC)

The holdall is super padded and very well designed and takes care of those who use 50mm butt rings , plus the padded inside flap has a pocket for net handle, shelter (Oval or Brolly) and a bankstick pocket..not on the outside like most holdals.

Rods are freakin awesome, crisp blanks, full length chevron design and full cork handles...what all carp rods should have.

Thanks Paul , once again great service and great products...I will be intouch for more carpin goodies.

Paul Rocks!! :party0012icon:

I agree! I have had a problem with an order here or there, but all it took was an e-mail or phone call and Paul took care of it. Great products and great customer service!

My first impressions, crisp feeling blanks even on the 12' 1.50TC Float rod.....high quality fuji reel seats and guides and quality cork handles with matt grey metal Fox butt caps. Super slim blanks and great feel in your hands....I really cant wait to get a fish on them...its killing me !!!

What Fox says...

"STALKER® 12FT 1.5LB FLOAT

Designed primarily for float fishing for carp on the Dutch and Belgian canals this two piece float rod is also a perfect all round specialist float rod for other species, such as tench, and it has also been used successfully on commercial fisheries in the UK. The fact that it is two piece rather than the usual three makes it easy to keep set up in your sling or holdall between sessions.

Guides are sized and spaced as for a traditional-style float rod."

I will also say that this float rod was purchased to be used with an Okuma Sheffield centerpin reel , yep i'm FINALLY going to give this style of carp fishing a real try this year. I also have the option of using one of the 12' 2.25TC Stalkers with the centerpin too for a little heavier work.

Man , I have always wanted to make the trip to Chicago just to visit his shop in person...maybe I need to gather some of the Ohio guys and make a road trip out of it...but I think I should plan it a month in advance..that way we each would have time to save up lots of cash...lol.
