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.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
