Black Friday?


Recommended Posts

Mark I got an email today from Sail abour a sale that might be good.  Then again, they have limited stock...  

Otherwise, it might be an online sort of hunt the next for days for some hidden jem deals.  Not sure.  I am well stocked on the moment for fishing items/gear so I have been looking more for motorcycle items.

Since Sail has "restructured" I hate getting the daily e-mail about the great sale they are having.. only to find that is really only a $7898.00 coat on sale %60 off.. 

The black Friday e-mail was no different..  but worse.. most of the fishing stuff was in-store only or limited stock.

No deals to be found online.. there are a bunch of local shops running great deals but in-store only

They really do have some expensive stuff I used to get some truly exceptional deals on rods at the store in Mississauga. That must have been the store with unpublicized sales. Now that store is closed and the store in Burlington looks like it should be closed but just has no inventory

Might be more of a clearance deal than Black Friday but I went into my local Canadian Tire for a roll of hockey tape and came out with a new ice hut!

Eskimo Quickfish 2i (insulated)

I'm blown away by the quality for the price I paid ($269.99)

Last one at that store at least. Weird thing was I looked online before I bought it and it didn't show up in their online inventory.

Striker at 50% is a steal too. I love mine, it's hands down the best suit I've owned.

You won’t regret it.  Compared to my 25 year old buoy O buoy suit that was like wearing a suit of armour, the striker is amazing.

sail had the 95sv on for $999 down from $1499 

i couldn’t find it cheaper at any other retailer. 
 

also rakuten had a 10% cash back bonus on items purchased online from sail so I pulled the trigger on getting a Garmin force and got $400 back

black friday ain’t what it used to be but there were some great deals I saw you just had to dig hard.

 

the perfect jig also had some fantastic deals on tungsten. 
 

Rah fish was absolutely blowing out their inventory. They had touques for like $5 or something

im sure these deals are still here for cyber Monday. Look to the manufacturers rather than the retailers for deals on tackle.

you won’t find great deals on non high end tackle because prices are set and the markup isn’t as high.

How do the garmins  compare to hummingbird units? 

I would argue that humminbird’s side and down imaging with the mega + is definitely better. But I would also argue that Garmin with the touch screen and menus is a better system. 

navigation...I’ve been seeing some very troubling wonky stuff with humminbirds lately. I’m not sure what’s going on but the gps calibration seems off. Weird weird stuff.
 

the real winner though is livescope. I haven’t bought it yet but am now ready to. Once you see livescope...phh it’s not even comparable. Humminbird just announced they are launching their own version in 2021 but there’s no way someone’s first version will run as well as another company that’s been doing it for years.

finally, the main reason for the switch is I’m done with Johnson controls and their garbage trolling motors it was time for a switch and I’m putting my faith in someone else. Hopefully they don’t let me down. The industry exclusive wireless linking between units and trolling motors is untouched in the industry still. That’s absolutely massive.

Interesting. I never had issues with my hummingbird or minnkota. Hummingbird makes it hard because they connect to the minnkota which if you don’t want that feature you can go elsewhere; otherwise your stuck. 

thats exactly why they do it. And exactly why garmin and Lowrance came out with their own trolling motors. They are expensive as hell, but they took all of the newest available tech and threw them into their units. 

Im excited to try the force out, apparently its incredible...i guess we will know this year. Brushless, wireless. I mean when you think about how humminbird refused to go with the wireless tech so that they can sell you networking cables, ok so you dont have to pay for that with garmin...but you pay more for the tech up front. Wireless linking in 2020 seems like a no brainer though at this point.
