Earlier this season I broke one of the 3/8" fiberglass rods that give my Quickfish3 shape. I'm not quite sure what happened but one of them snapped while trying to fold it up at the end of the day.
Of course they are available from Eskimo for $7.99 but the shipping to Alaska is a killer (as we know all too well)
Grainger Industrial to the rescue! The 3/8" glass rods in 5' lengths are available for $4.63. I am having 2 of them shipped to the Anchorage store this week. The Grainger item number is: 4ATL1
As always there are no shipping charges if delivered to the store.
Just thought I'd pass this along incase anybody else needs fiberglass rods.
