How long ago were these "pre orders" placed? Im not bashing Justin or his company. i show off his lines and both reels to the local shops and people on the river. i love the Alpha reel and prototype reel i purchased at the same time(Dec 17th), id just like to know whats going on.
I'm in the same boat here.....

Guys, The rods are being shipped in order. There were some behind the sense stuff that delaid the rod. I was pre mature on the release (rookie mistake). I will not be doing anymore pre leases on rods because of issues that might back fire and the last thing I want are upset customers.

They were all done and then the final test resulted in a bad flex in the 3rd pc of the rod. So we redid the blanks and that took some time because of the carbon that is being used is a special carbon that comes in Japan. Japan was not releasing any carbon outside the country for 2 months for me to get my rod done. I was not the only mfg that was having issues.

This rod is way ahead of its time and I was not going to cheapin it up to just get rods out the door with a less expensive carbon. My rod builder is keeping busy wrapping the guides and getting me rods to ship to everyone.

I admit its been a nightmare, but I'm trying to take care of this asap.


Thank you,



Justin

Thanks for the update Justin. I think everyone that's had to deal with suppliers can understand.

THanks for posting some pics gtom.
Are the blanks green?
Man I can't wait to get my hands on this rod.
I would rather have quality over having it right now though so thank you Justin for keeping up the quality.

Another thanks for posting pics gtom. J

Justin diserves props thats for sure for not be willing to compromise on quality. I can tell you from experience that as much as he can Justin bends over backwards to take care of his customers and he humbly accepts valid constructive comments positive and negative. Also IMO the fact that he doesn't make excuses, but simply states the facts speaks of his character and desire to give the best customer service possible and then some.

gtom61,
Thanks for posting the pics. Is there any way you could also post a couple pics of the stripping guide and a snake guide?
