Not at this time. Will add it to the "possibilties" list, but suspect that the cost would be absurd for such a short run.

I'd like to suggest the new Fox 40 be made out of glow-in-the-dark plastic so it is easier to see at night.

Hi,

is early February still the official release schedule? I was going to order some stuff from a US retailer and might hold off until Doug's kit is available to save on shipping (to Germany).

Thanks.

I will be surprised if it ships before mid-February <img src="images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> as there have apparently been some production issues with the whistle that are delaying things. I will have a better answer Monday after I meet with Adventure Medical Kits at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market this weekend. Much of this is out of my hands. Not thrilled, but stuff happens and I'm not willing to compromise on critical issues. <shrug>

Thanks for the update Doug.

I don't mind the delay at all, it just shows your concern for quality. I would even be willing to wait another few months or pay a bit extra, if that makes it a better product. Although I hope I will never have to use the kit, it is reassuring to know that I can rely on it when I have to.

Great site by the way, thank you for letting us all benefit from your comprehensive knowledge! <img src="images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

I have actually had my hands on the kit (w/prototype whistle). All present agreed it was nice, and will be worth the wait & weight. Of course, it was a biased group <img src="images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Doug:

If I could just inquire about why the snap swivels in the fishing kit: convenience, necessity, or ?? If you can tie on a snap swivel, you can tie on a hook. If I understand cord strength ratings, a knot is a weak spot, or at least a potential spot for failure. Using a snap swivel means there is a knot, plus the snap swivel could fail. Why not forget the snap swivels and include two more hooks, or two flies, or something else more useful?

Thanks.

We debated this at length and you have covered most of the points, except the pros of the snap swivel. One knot or three, it results in the same reduction is strength, that is not cumulative, assuming all the knots are tied correctly as shown in the instructions. The palomar is an easy knot to tie. Those more experienced than me at this believe the swivel makes for much more effective attraction of the fish when using improvised lures, especially, as well as bait. In the end, that and marketing won out as preferring having at least one snap swivel.

Hi
As a newbie to the site I'm abit lost with some of the threads, my problem. I'm keen to know more of the PSP and to know whether it will be availble in Europe, shipping cost being what they are from the US.

One quote $27 for Arc-AAA + $115 UPS.
