    I was up later then I am most nights, last night! I was flipping through the channels and came across a late night info-mercial, about the new improved "instant fisherman"! I am thinking they showed it when real fisherman are sleeping or fishing and can't counter there claims, lol! I had one about 10 years ago and was'nt really impressed! However the video these guys showed had them, catching a shark about 6 feet long. Hauled him off the bottom, and in a hurry too! You can then adjust the stiffness of this rod and go trout fishing or adjust it in the middle for eater cats! I don't think I will be buying one, but the video is worth watching. Anybody got one? You can tell us!:wink: Lmao!

    It looks OK to me for something to throw in your trunk in "just in case"

    Hey Buddy,
    I seen the info-mercials about that thing - and all I have to say is "BS"!!!! (lol:happy: )
    I Can just see someone pulling in a 20+ pound Channel - a 35+ pound Blue Cat or a 50+ pound Flathead on one of those things :roll_eyes:
    A nice Bluegill whould tear that thing up. (lol:happy: )
    I wouldn't even teach a kid to fish with one of those things, because they may grow-up rippin' people off or making info-mercials themself (lol:happy: ).
    "Real Fishermen use Real Fishing Gear" :0a23:

    "Instant Fisherman - "Yea Right":roll_eyes:

    Take it easy Fellows,

    I had one of the old ones when I was a kid. I can't remember if I ever caught anything on it.

    I was thinking, it's buy one get one for only two payments of...you go ahead and order for us, send me one, and you make a payment and I'll make the second! It would be like 6 poles for us! Think of it, Sharks, bass, Tuna, Squid, Killer Whale, Just waiting. N-O-T! Ten year warranty though???
