Many of you have probably seen this already but we launched the new FoxFIRE fiberglass hybrid rod on Kickstarter. It is a great rod that gives you a soft action is some very short lengths for those of you that fish tight canopy creeks. We feel it overcomes a lot of the issues that many short carbon fiber tenkara rods often have. Check it out at FoxFIRE Fiberglass Tenkara Rod on Kickstarter
One thing Jason Sparks said about this rods production prototype is that
“The biggest noticeable characteristic of the Foxfire is that is was FUN! Having fished dozens and dozens of different rods with tens of thousands of cast over the last decade, this rod felt fresh, distinctive and FUN!! Who doesn’t like having fun when they are out on the water?”
The rod also got featured on TheFiberglassManifesto.com as well
Backed! Bonus points if a 5 incher can put a bend in this rod.
Backed it and chose green, thinking about going back for blue as well.
I needed another rod like a hole in the head but backed Brent because of all he has done for the Tenkara Community. I went green.
I also don’t need another rod and have a rod that matches the Foxfire’s characteristics on paper pretty well. Green for me, and will do a "fish off’ early next summer to determine which gets sold.
i noticed the blue have a december 2021 arrival date. looks like green arrive march 2022. glad i got the blue now.
The green rods for the December shipping time frame sold out fast.
I have a Gift Card at Amazon. Gess I will have to wait until the FoxFIRE FG Tenkara Rod goes on sale there. It is not all that long before the trout season closes here, anyway…Karl.
We should have them on Amazon for you by very early spring.
Thank you very much, Brent! I will be looking forward, with great anticipation, for that to happen…Karl.
@FlyDestruction i see you have 530 backers. that’s awesome!
I ordered the green and blue combo. I will keep one and the other one I will give to my grandson. I’m
not sure what color looks the best? Any ideas?
People favored the green quite a bit over the blue, I think they both look great but the green color is brighter and stands out more.
WooHoo. My new Foxfire is showing up Tuesday.
are they sending shipping notices? i guess so. hope i get mine soon.
Apparently they got some rods in earlier than expected and are shipping them out. The rest will ship in December. If you haven’t received a notice it probably isn’t coming until later.
Project Update 3 on Kickstarter said that they would finish shipping the orders for December delivery by the end of the first week of November.
I haven’t seen anything from Dragontail or Brent to the contrary.
Yes, I received an email that it was shipping out today. I guess it will arrive by Monday (hopefully).
