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...

Re: EXPO will NOT be held in 2019

No just took the money he made off of everybody the last eighteen years or whatever and left everybody hanging. And because we were to lazy to step up and get another National Conclave going that will not happen either so now the craft has no shows other than the willy nilly regional events that dra...

Custom Rod Builders Guild Website officially dead

It has now been THREE MONTHS since the last post made on the Custom Rod Builders Guild Message Board. The members have deserted. The new officers discussed reinstating a yearly National Conclave but have thrown in the towel. There will NOT be any future National Conclaves. It is like they have all g...

Re: EXPO will NOT be held in 2019

I told you so. Every expo has had dates set by first of June. Here we are almost in August and not a word from kirkman. Even posted on his shitty forum about dates for 2019 and he did NOT bother to respond. His show is FINISHED. His show website has not been updated in six months. No mention of a 20...
