Doublebull replacement rods - how to??

8 posts in this topic

My Doublebull got caught in a windstorm last year when I left it up on some private property and broke 4 of the rods. It's pretty cool that Primos will send you free replacements but here's the question - How in the heck do you get the ball on the end of the rod into the hub socket without shaving it down? I'm sure it fits great once in, but I'm not seeing a way to force it shy of a 2lb rubber mallet, and maybe not even then.

Ideas?

I have replaced the little piece on the end of the rod. I took the other off and then took the plate of the hub, put the poles in place and then placed the cover back on and tightened up the screw that goes into the middle.

Now, that is the type hub I have with the cover on it held with the screw in the middle. I would assume that you may have the same style.

You may have a diiferent style than I as my blinds have some years on them.

Are they still there? Primos bought them so I was not sure if they still did work up there. What a great place, bring in the blind they will fix it while you wait (usually no charge). I hope that customer service did not leave when the biz got sold.

Managed to call the 888# on the Primos site and got thru to someone, don't know if it's here or at their hq. Anyway, as was described, there's a cross-tip screw on the back of the hub (on the canvas side where I didn't see it!) that you take off, remove the washer, remove the ball and whatevers left of the shaft and then just slide in a new one. The new rods seem like a better material and the price is right, free and you pay shipping.

    • I'm awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
