citrus sticks???

Recommended Posts

anybody ever heard of em'  guy was just telling me that this was what all the "pros"  were moving to.   just kinda shrugged it off and said cool.  I googled them and their website was rather lackluster.

It is a new rod made by a custom-rod builder. $150 or so a pop. I remeber hearing about one of the bigger name FLW guys and Clay Dyer talking about them.

Citrus sticks?  Not a good choice for a name.  When I hear citrus, among other things, lemon comes to mind.

I'm coming out with a new line of rods.  They will be infused with actuall bass flesh nanofiber technology.  I'm calling them "Fish Sticks"  :D

You could also add shreds of wood to the blank from recycled violins and have "fiddle stix".

They haven't been out very long, and the owner kind of pumped some no name pro staffers into the company..... From what I have heard so far they are pretty good rods, I haven't seen one so I am waiting for some more reviews before I buy.

Goodness gracious !!! Annother "BLING, BLING GIMME YOUR MONEY !!!" 

I'll just stick with the "tried and true".... St Croix, Fenwick, Shimano,Daiwa, Abu, Dobins, Powel etc,etc,etc. All have great rods in that price range. ( maybe a couple bux more, but worth it)

Ott Defoe is using their rods.

Even if they are the best rods ever built could they ever be perceived as anything other than a gimmicky Carrot Stix knock off?

No way! Well, it had better be a collaboration at this point because my "Fish Sticks" were almost done! Are yours a Chartreuse and White candy cane swirl pattern too? ;D

There was a ton of "chatter" about these on another board over the past month or two.  It was quite comical, but it certainly helped spread their name there and inevitably sold them some rods!

Naw man, my gimmick is they smell like rotting fish.  They will have a gaff hook on the butt end, no net needed for your trophies!

Actually, that "internet chatter" is the part that rankles me.  Come out with a new line of rods, put a website up, and have ten of your buddies post up about it.  I realize its the "new paradigm" in advertising, but its based on nothing but hype.

Man, I thought the orange ones were bad.

Those Citrus-thingies are painfully ugly.

PUT THE SQUEEZE ON 'EM

At least there's no way the rods could be worse than the slogan.  ;D

Did you see the pics? Why would you try to sell your $155 rod and display it next to great grampa's tackle box and an old boat from the Red Lobster down the street? They look like glow-stick catfish poles!

Took the words right out of my mouth.

You would think they would at least take em and put them next to a blinged out ride or something.

they probably painted a bunch of old carrot stix.  I'm not buying the deal.  It seems to me that if they were something so revolutionary,  they'd put a more effort in to the presentation of the website.  I personally don't see how anyone can compete with the falcon bucoo in medium priced rods except for the shimano compre.

What's funny is, you gave them over 250 impressions for free, just by starting this thread.
