Default Bring Back The Bernie Rods???

I am personally really missing the Bernie rods and want to get a feel for how many of you guys would buy one or another one if you could.

Anyone that would like Eagle Claw to produce more of them should email the folks over there and let them know. I don't know if this will help but it sure can't hurt. These were fantastic rods for the $$$ and I wish I had bought a bunch of them. If you have never fished one, you are missing out.

Here is their email contact: [email protected]

They were the best value I've ever seen in a lake trout ice rod. I heard they sold well in Colorado, but not nationally. I have several, but I would have bought a couple more this year.

The one thing I've learned about fishing equipment is that when you find something you really like you'd better stock up because sooner or later it will be discontinued.

considering that I do deliveries/pickups there once every 2 weeks, yeah I will guess that I am more than likely correct. no place is ever TRULY out of product, especially if it's the nationwide distribution center for that company.
every 2 weeks you're a frickin rookie pal!!! I'm going on 60 hours there this week alone...and nites to boot!!! I was in the store the other day and all they had was a couple of the baitcasters!!! Tell me what you find out rook!!!
