Lol!! :lol: and thanks for the note LR, rating fixed.

Re: Fishing Drones Have Arrived: The Ludicrous PowerRay, a Fishing Drone that Uses Sonar and 4K Video to Catch Fish

Bottom line. How much? I would use something like this to explore underwater structure vs catching fish. I asked them the same question at the show and they said that they had not yet determined the launch MSRPs. A good reference may be their flying drone, the "PowerEgg" which retails for over $1,2...

Re: Fishing Drones Have Arrived: The Ludicrous PowerRay, a Fishing Drone that Uses Sonar and 4K Video to Catch Fish

When I saw this at the show the first thing I thought was exactly what I repeated in the video "can you really call this fishing?" There is no doubt that drones are going to become more prevalent in the water too but it was interesting that PowerVision decided to target anglers specifically. Not sur...

Re: The Search for One: The 13 Fishing Archangel

Thanks USA-RET, it was definitely one of the more exciting rods I've had the opportunity to test over the last season. It's always nice when the performance stands up to the positioning. No doubt this is a very big investment for any angler, but I hope we will continue to see 13 Fishing keep pushing...

Re: Shimano Stradic FK – A Solid Design

Thanks for the comments, and some valid points guys, I referenced in the review that some of the Hagane concepts are things that we have seen in previous generation shimano reels and are just marketed as "Hagane" now. Also correct that the metal in the Hagane body is the arm side (the stem) which wh...

Re: Finesse at the Entry Level: Abu Garcia's Revo S20

Sorry guys, not Wolbugger's fault. Looks like we have some coding problems with this article and the matrixes have some legacy data from another review. This is being corrected now though there are still some formatting issues that will be worked out within the hour. Thanks for catching the issue Fi...

Thanks guys, sorry for the typo. The final number was correct in the matrix as well as the final ratings matrix, just had a typo in the tabulation box. Edited and didn't change the scoring, thanks for the heads up.

Re: Is the Native Watercraft "Ultimate 12" Fishing Kayak ...

The review says the MSRP is $799. Austin Kayak says the MSRP for the basic model is $1,099. Where are you finding Ultimate 12s for $799? I'd like to buy one at that price. Hi wbook01, some local shops sell it for this price. http://www.andythornal.com/products/native-ultimate-14-5-kayak?vfsku=44737...

Re: Redefining a Classic, the Lew’s BB1 Baitcaster

Sorry to hear about your friend, Zander, and many thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed answer under those conditions. I'm sure you'll "forgive" me for still being obsessed with distance, as I'm stuck on shore and any extra distance I can get is a godsend. As a matter of fact, most of...
