Finally got off my duff and will be adding 12 Monster's to my boat. Albeit, second handed, when I just happened across a deal I couldn't refuse. But I really don't think it will matter The Monsters are quality built. The proof came recently with the one that Tanner found at the Cebala's championships that was run over. It might have been bent, but it didn't break. Or, the video of the young one reeling in a big 61#er while the rod was still in the holder. It if can take that kind of abuse, I can't see any fish doing any worse. Steve has always put out a good product and the thought process into these products, is evident in the design and workmanship, always looking to improve. From the Akwa-Lung system to the fast growing popularity of the Monsters. Steve is doing it the right way and not cutting corners. Will be interesting in 5 or 10 years to look back and see how Steve has come along and evolved from the very first Monster produced to where he will be at in the future. All this starting when he had a big fish bust off his rod holder and lost his own rod and reel and who knows how big of a fish. Something tells me that he will be expanding to offer these products for all fishermen, not just the guys with the boats chasing the big cats. He is definitely positioning himself with quality products for the Tournament fishermen or us guys that just get out for the fun of it. Catfishing is just about ready to explode into the main stream in the next few years. It is going to be people like Steve that helps the sport with offering quality products that are the real deal. Thanks Steve, looking forward to seeing your involvement in the future and how it evolves and revolutionizes the sport. I know of one SeaArk that will be sporting those good looking Monsters. Quite a few different people fish with me in a years time. I'm sure they will appreciate being able to view these Monsters in action. I know The Akwa-Lung has opened some eyes from people that have fished with me in the small tourney's around me.
