Fig Rig Sold?

13 posts in this topic

I stopped at Gander today and saw that they had fig rig rods on sale. I got home and looked them up. They are currenttly being sold.

Anybody know if they still honor their counter warranty.

I also saw Gander pulling a fast one. They had the 8 foot trolling rods marked ar 49 down from 69, but when I checked the fig rig HSOforum the price of these rods has been 49 all year.

Anybody know what's happening to the company? Hans

Wish I knew. I could go on, but since I don't have anything good to say, I won't.

just sounds like a retailer selling them in their marketing program, I am sure no one has ever marked things up and sold them at regular price to give the perception of a great deal...that is just simple marketing....on the fig rigs, they are being sold and last I heard no major company is plannning on aquiring them

Fig Rig, not worth the weight in graphite. Sorry to say... I thought they were the real deal for a musky rod. I was proven wrong. Since they are ought of business, I think my comments are not really bashing this product. They had the look and feel of a great rod, but have not stood the test of time for many fisherman...

I got a question. How many of these muskie rods broke on you guys???? I had 4 break in 3 years, all on hook sets. My girlfriend this summer broke one on a weed. They all broke at the same spot!!! I would call them up and they would say they have never had a problem with those rods. Then they would send me a new one. I no longer will use those rods!!!!

I must have got some good ones then. 4 years on one rod and 2 on another. They have done everything expected but I also adhered to the ratings on them and took care of them. I will continue to use them.

Sounds like I should be able to get some deals on Fig Rig's that others won't use anymore...send 'em my way!!!

This is a never ending debate, the long and short of it as there were batches of great rods and alot of batches of Sh*tty ones. I have been very lucky, the 5 Figs I have are great and have been beat on pretty good and caught alotta fishies over the last 4 years. I have an 8 ft Hvy that throws big rubber all year and I am just waiting for it to snap on a hookset, but it never does. I have seen a few break but they were just always someone elses......lucky me I guess.

Fig Rig has been sold. My 7'-6" 18-month old "Tooth Tamer" rod broke just below the fifth ferrule last week, August 28. I called the number and was told Tooth Tamers had been sold. I left my name and number with the promise that "someone" the buyer would be in touch. We'll see if the new owner honors the warranty.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.

    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
