I purchased this product as a birthday present for my boyfriend. I ordered it over the phone on Aug. 28. My boyfriends birthday was 8 days from that, but I purchased the extra $10 option of rush delivery (guaranteed 2-3 day delivery) to insure that it would get here in time. Needless to say, by, Sept. 5, I had received nothing. It finally came 2 days later! In addition, I opted for a payment plan of 3 monthly payments, but after checking my online banking, found that they took out all $93 in one swoop, which resulted in an overdraft fee of $35.It took a lot of work to get in touch with them, as the number on their website is non-active) I am livid. I am very, very angry. But that's not all. We finally got around to fishing yesterday, and the look on my boyfriend's face was so sad. It took about an hour to get it out of him, but he finally broke down and told me that the "fishing pole" was horrible. One of the cheapest, loudest, bulkyest, most awkward rod he'd ever seen. (He's been an avid fisherman since he was 5 or 6). The saddest part was that he felt so bad about having to tell me this, but I made him. Basically, he said you could get something of the same quality at your local . I'm returning it today, LESS $40 SHIPPING & HANDLING. **Do not even entertain the thought of purchasing this wad of cheap plastic! Trust me.

I am an avid fisherman. I happened to catch an infomercial about "The Instant Fisherman", and the Fishing Rods seemed like a perfect stup for myself. I called the number on the infomercial and tried to order the product. I was told that I could only get information on the Fishing rods after I gave them my credit card information. I refused to give any credit card numbers untill I had more details about the product. I was told that is not possible. I went to their website and read about the items I would be purchasing. Feeling confidant in the product I ordered them on-line. One month after purchase, No items were delivered to me. I tried to contact the company to check on status of my purchases. The number listed on their website is not a valid number. I tried to see if there was any other way to contact them but to no avail. There is no working phone number and the only way is to send them a letter, which of course I got no RESPONSE from them. I am now fighting with my Credit Card Company to cancel the payment, but because I had waited 30 days the charges have already cleared. They offer a 30 day guarentee for their products but 30 days has passed and I have yet to recieve the products. DO NOT PURCHASE "THE INSTANT FISHERMAN" because you WILL NOT recieve the products.
