Re: THREE MONTHS

Yeah but see, the thing is, we have heard this song and dance every time a new group of officers takes over. This club or organization has been in business now for something like 18 or 19 years it reached a peak during its first two or three years and has been going downhill ever since. Nobody in th...

Finish the one you already have in your mouth before taking on a second one.

THREE MONTHS

I has now been over THREE MONTHS since the Custom Rod Builders Guild Forum has had a message posted. The officers and members have given up and handed the rod building organization and event world over to Kirkman. Great going guys. Way to show some enthusiasm for your organization.

Re: k-man's book

Damn...... just took a look at Pud Hole's book.... wall to wall advertisements for their products on every page. I can see where that one's going.

Best to go back to Clemens book all the way. Still relevant.

Re: k-man's book

Actually K-man never sold them to begin with. He wrote it for another company and they sold it through all the dealers. But you can bet some money got into his pocket for writing it. I was told an upfront commission of $100K and then couple bucks for each one they sold. The rod builders have funded ...

k-man's book

Kirkman has inked some sort of new book deal. He's like the energizer bunny and keeps going and going. And until we start boycotting his sorry ass he will keep on being the major player in the custom rod building business. No single person should have that much power. Why do people continue to kiss ...

Re: Tri-State Event

Poor turnout. The Guild has shot itself in the foot by not keeping up their website and now going the Facebook route. You do not have to be a member to join their FB page so why bother giving them money or joining to go to one of our small events. Our officers are not the sharpest knives in the draw...

Re: Who is the worst company in rod building?

Right off the bat anything that kirkman is involved with is the worst. Good news is that his website is gone and his expo show will not be held in 2018. The fucker has made his mint and is retiring. Good riddance. Chimerica Tackle is the shittiest company out there with their bullshit products with ...

Re: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE "PLAN"?

Agreed but the Guild should have stepped up and moved in when we found out that kirkmans show was over and done. There was nothing stopping us.

Re: Custom Rod Builders Guild Website officially dead

There is nobody to bring here. The CRBG decided to go the Facebook route which does not require you to be a Guild member. So we have no real paying members left. It is all just a front now for something with no meat behind it. What could have been will not be. Everybody complains and bitches but whe...
