Let me preface this by saying I just received my order of Rod Sox
last night in the mail (3-day delivery!) so I don't have that much experience with them yet. However they do look to be top notch quality, and I had no initial problems putting rods in and and taking them out.
What I can say is we ran into the owner at the Classic (he actually came up to us and introduced himself) and he was a super nice guy! They also support several organizations benefitting wounded/disabled vets etc and expressed interest in doing the same for HOW!! I ordered several of the desert camo colored ones which automatically gives $.50 to the various charitable organizations!
And if that's not enough, I just spoke to Knot Right, and if you can wait just a little, they will be available in the HOOK 1 store "VERY SOON"!!!
