Has metal rings around front sections to stop splitting and green plastic tube on shaft under gaff head glows in the dark

Fishonproshop ones are 3m long
the one i got was 5m, as 3m isnt long enough for me when standing up on the pier it wouldnt reach youd have to lay down and hang over the side on a low tide, to reach the water.
Thats the only reason or i would have got on from fishonproshop.

I live directly across the road from fishing fever and they were the first ones i asked but no one had the one i wanted so i ordered from japan now a few places are getting them in. mine was from plat and cost me 16000 yen 191 ozzy dolars at the time of exchange rate .
fishing fever is selling them at 250.00.

i get yamashita jigs for $10 and yo zuri for $10.
rods for half the price, line for half the price, gaffs are cheaper reels everything.
everyone always go support your local store well local stores should be supporting us the fishing people and have resonable prices, we all have no problem with them making money but seriously when they are marking things up $50 or $100 its a joke.
alot easyer and cheaper to buy from japan, but i mist say i have found a local guy that sells harimitsu and yo zuri, yamashita and a few others very cheap...

Ian, would be $9.28 postage as it weighs more than 500gm but less than a kg.

Pete
