'09 catalogs ????

Recommended Posts

 I could hae swore I already had rec'd a new catalog from one of the 2 BPS or Cabela's but can't find any now. Has anyone else received an '09 catalog of any kind?

 Old age is setting in though so???

I can't remember.  If I'm not mistaken, I receive only three or four new BPS catalogs a week.  One of them may have been an 09, but they all go into the trash.  It's almost criminal how much money BPS wastes on their catalogs.

I have to wonder if people are actually dumb enough to buy the things.  I see them for sale at bookstores all the time.

  That must have been what I saw bilge

That explains why I don't have it now as I don't do the salt water thing

It makes sense not to post new '09 picing when the as it would confuse peoplw with the '8's

 Then again they could use it to hurry people on the bubble if they see a higher price was coming?

As for the rest man talk about off topic?

rec'd my '09 BPS today

Some things I noticed.

1) Shimano / US reels has an add right in the middle of the Shimano BC pages. Shimano even has more BC on the next page so it kind of doesn't make sense. Not sure what if anything to make of this although I doubt anything special ?????

2) Daiwa - has an anniversary special Zillion. The color looks kind of funky. I imagine it looks different in person but in the add it makes it look like cheap plastic ( which I doubt it is ). I think it also has a 7.3:1 gear ration and they tout it as fastest in the industry

3) Pflueger gone are the Summit, Supreme, trion and the old president baitcasters ( now Pres 2 ). The top of the line is the Patriarch. Also still list the Asaro and the Cetina

4) BPS released a Johnny Morris Gold which looks good.

5) The rod section seems very thin

As silly as it sounds I realised that I really like my reels to look nice as well as perform well. If I'm going to spend Cadillac or Ferrari money I want it top look good. I'm not likely to buy a boring beige Ferrari. That is one reason that in the past I didn't like a lot of Diawas as they just looked ugly ( Like the TD's . Several of their reels now look pretty good.

Not the most solid philosophy I know but if they want my money that's what it takes..

2) ABU - has an anniversary special Zillion. The color looks kind of funky. I imagine it looks different in person but in the add it makes it look like cheap plastic ( which I doubt it is ). I think it also has a 7.3:1 gear ration and they tout it as fastest in the industry

You mean Daiwa ;D

I got one while I was home on leave and I LOVE it!  You say you want a farrari paintjob if you're paying farrari money?  You might wanna see one in person then cuz I think this baby would be right up your alley!  The pics definitely don't do it justice...

-BACK ON TOPIC- (sorry)

I'm sure there'll be a couple of '09 catalogs at the house when I get home with a big ugly baboon just waiting to jump from the pages and steal my bank card. ;)
