Hi Everyone - Mud Hole is operating until 2PM today, and then we will hunker down and ride out the storm. We continue to monitor Dorian, and hope it continues its latest projected track North/ North East and stay off the eastern seaboard. We expect to be closed tomorrow, Wednesday 9/4. To our friends already feeling the effects or in the projected path, be safe! As always we appreciate your b

Hi Alex, Mud Hole still offers the entire line up of Pac-Bay products, they are available at www.mudhole.com. The SSR is a new offering from CRB and does feature a pressed stainless ring similar to the design of the Minima's however they are not Pacific Bay products or vice versa.

Most of the post here have already hit the nail on the head, just my 2c...Biggest change is texture, most cases hand is resting on the reelseat/ reel so the density change is really a non factor (to me at-least). I like the rough grain on the CFX grips, but as many have said if you prefer smoother apply a top coat.

Thanks Stuart. I appreciate you sending the batch number and your help. We are taking the steps to make sure other kits did not go out incorrectly and will be reaching out to customers that may have received mis-packaged kit. Let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you as well.

Anthony, I agree with the baffling part, I received your message 5/14 at 8:57PM and replied that evening via my tablet to the dead fish customs email address. I will re-forward my response and go from there, my mistake for not following up with you after not hearing back...I agree with your main objective 100%

The FAWC swooped Aluminum checks pair nicely, its an elegant option for a fly rod: . The CFX Fighting butts can be used as a fighting butt for a fly rod as well: if you prefer a bit more carbon, use a foregrip and plug the end with a rubber butt plug.

Anthony Please allow me to clear the air...CRB and its associated product lines originated from a need that we (Mud Hole) noticed in the marketplace. From years of doing business and listening to feedback of new hobbyists entering the craft and seasoned builders alike we saw a common trend, start up costs were to high and builders wanted options (after all...we are talking about rod builders ri

Last chance to save 75% on these Lamiglas clearance blanks for Bass, Fly, Freshwater, Saltwater, Salmon/Steelhead, and Surf Fishing - while supplies last! Ends Tuesday 11/8 - then they are gone for good! Lamiglas is one of the most popular rod building blanks around because they build their rods for the specific requirements and performance needed for a given fishing application.

Mark, Fuji changed the color of gunsmoke coating on the hoods. It is not a defect or mis-ship, I believe they changed it late last year.

I'd be curious to know if something was up with MHX too Phil, as it would be news to us. If you heard that MHX will be continuing to provide innovative, quality and affordable Rod Blanks for Rod Builders around the world, then I would say the rumor is true...other than that I wouldn't be able to support any claim.

Hi Mark, You are correct, according to Angler's Resource Fuji is discontinuing the Titanium / Alconite combination. They still have ample stock however so we will continue to offer it until their inventory is depleted. As for the Arowana tops, I spoke to AR late last week and confirmed they were available we should have them up on the site in the next day or so, I meant to pass this info on

Tom, I agree with that, which is why those are all included as facet options to help isolate products that meet the criteria being searched. For instance, the SCIV St. Croix page referenced earlier has over 100 products in it when first clicked. By choosing the Facet "Length" then selecting "7'" for instance only 10 blanks are displayed (http://www.mudhole.com/brands/r-s/s

Hi Guys, The first shipment literally flew off the shelves. We have a partial shipment of a few b/o shapes due in by Friday 11/6 and the remainder due at our warehouse due in by the 11/18. Ken, these are "unfinished" but have been sealed and are fully useable without any additional coating if desired. Keep an eye out for email stock updates in the coming weeks.
