Mammoth Outfitters Rod

Recommended Posts

Does anyone use these? I have the 28" light and I absolutely love it. Problem is, the tip broke off. frown.gif I have looked everywhere for a HSOforum or some contact information to see what my options are for a replacement. Most higher-end rod makers (St. Croix, Thorne Bros., Midwest, etc.) all have great warranty service and I would consider these Mammoth Rods in that class.

The tags say that they are made by a former co-owner of Thorne Bros. (his last name was Thorne) before he split away from the company. Maybe he doesn't make them anymore. I guess if my search comes up empty, I can always just by a new tip for it.

I don't believe they are made anymore.

I have had mine for many years now, I really like them.

Adding a new tip would be an easy fix. smile.gif

These were a top of the line rod back in the day Jarod. I have a few I got for $5 in a bucket outside MG. I havent seen them for years. Maybe MG has some laying around you can get cheap but I havent seen them. Call Russ and see if he has a HSOforum for them. If not he can tel ya if they are no longer in bussiness.

Northy, I can't believe you found them in the bargain bucket. I talked to Russ about them. He still has them on the normal shelf for $35 a piece. Said he didn't get any more in this year. He also did not have any contact info for them. I'll probably just go with a different tip. The problem will be if I can find one small enough.

BTW, if you still have the ones you paid $5 for, I'll by them from you for triple that! shocked.gif

Did the actual rod break or did the tip just come off (epoxy)? You may be able to bring it to a rod builder and have them add a new rod tip. You may need to put on a single-foot guide for the tip, like on the Thorne rods.

The actual tip broke off, but right at the end. I don't think I will lose too much performance if I find a new tip that will fit. It will just be a 27 1/2" L instead of a 28" L. Oh well. I'm hoping Fisherman's Corner north of Duluth will have the right sized tip.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
