Just working out a shopping list with Little Rob up there in Nelson.
Nice to support a fellow southern man so frequently!

Thanks all for the opportunity to make our brand more widely known again, pity we couldn't help many of you improve your catch rate (sadly, only the winners of product) who knows, good things come to those who wait I guess.

We are restocking into Warren Hay Marine up Whangarei ways and there are still some stockists with good ranges about Auckland where it seems the greater majority of members circulate from.

Like Kevin, we too are a smaller operated business still New Zealand owned and specialising in NZ designed and made products.
Let us know your feedback and we will try to put things the way you like them, as we did with Stephen Tapp a few years back at Limitless Adventures.

Our "can-do" attitude is one of our biggest assets in our premium quality range and you get what you want the way you want it every time at surprisingly less cost than competing brands.

Keep us posted and we'll keep you supported.

In closing, retail support for our brand is not as it once was in the north so our hand has been forced like many others, to online sales.
This is brilliant in the respect that retailers who chase each others tails by running the same select few brands, miss the all important point of difference that is highly evident when dropped in front of a fish.
Fact is, you can still get the best products delivered direct to your door freight free!

Like us on Facebook under http://www.facebook.com/hotshotz.tackle" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; or simply search Tackle Save for great deals and updates on specials.

Cheers for now!

Not sure of model - its at home but overhead carbon model 12-25lb so a baitcaster. Maybe a Jigging Master Arrestor 630. Not sure. Looking at upgrading to a Ducro 10 for my JM 100g Saber shortly from the SL20SH I have at the moment too so thats about $700 for both. I'll have a surf around when I get a chance. Need to get rid of some gear really, Only use 3 or 4 rods regularly on the yak and I own about 11 at last count :o
