    this may sound stupid, but i just recently bought 500 glowsticks from gene. last night i let my daughter have one to play with...after hours on end we simply placed it in the freezer, today and tonight it is as bright as new. how many hours long can you get out of these things? and are they reusable after an entire nights fishing? anyways thanks for the great product! my daughter and me really are enjoying them...rollo

    I've notice a long "Burn" time on them as well. Longer than most that alot of them I've seen.. Though, I doubt I would get 2 nites out of one...

    Usually, about 12-14 hours out of the full size glow sticks.

    I have been averaging 24 to 30 hours on the glow sticks from gene.

    I can usually get two nights of fishing with them. They don't glow quite as good the second night but they still work fine. I just cover the tips of my rods with a towel and I'm ready to go the next night. They work great.

    What is the best way that you guys have found for securing the glowstick to the rod tip?

    Thanks

    Thanks Bama Cat, the last time I used them I used some hockey tape and that worked ok but I figured there had to be some better ways. Small wire ties sounds like the way to go. Thanks again!

    Tape one of the connectors on your rod tip and leave it there. Can change glow sticks when needed that way. Fit tight enough that they will not fall out.

    Before I rig my pole I put 2 gumbands (rubber bands for all you people who aren't from pittsburgh) on the tip. The small ones you find with the girls hair clips and ties and what not work great!! Just double them over a few times and you just have to slip one over each end of the glow stick.

    As for keeping them for 2 nights if you take them off when you get home and throw them in the freezer they will last a long time. Not forever but a long time just take out next time and when they thaw they will start to glow again. Freezing them does not stop the chemical reaction it only slows it down a whole lot. You can't even see them glowing when they are frozen but run them under warm water and they light right back up. Hope this helps!!

    Just make sure the keeper for the cable tie is on the opposite side of the rod as the line. I learned the hard way!

    Next time you're in the produce section buying some veggies for your next catfish dinner grab a few extra ties for the produce bag and put them in your tackle box. :wink: They seem to have an endless supply :smile2::smile2:

    I just use the connectors that come with them and make a ring and loop them around the rod tip.
