Alright everyone let's here some product reviews that you guys have on the products you use all the time. If the rest of you are like me you want to see what other people have to say about something before you spend the money on it.

This isn't a thread to bash companies or other people. its a thread to let others know about your experience with different products.

I'll start it off...
- RPM vise reel seat- first impression is that it was a great seat. held the reel nice and tight and never came loose. shot my first one for about 6 months before the stud that screws into the bow broke off. I got a new one sent to me for free from josh at rpm and it broke in the same spot after about 6 trips. I had one on my backup bow that broke also. If those studs would hold up I would keep running them but I got tired of diving for my spinner reels at the bottom of the lake.

RPM points- all their points seem to hold fish really well. the tips seem to stay sharp longer then Cajun or muzzies but the barbs bend and break real easy. I have lost a couple fish in tournaments due to barbs breaking off. RPM said they are working on a fix to the problem and they are testing some new stuff.

Blackdog bow fishing carp cable- this stuff is great spinner line! Holds up well to the beating we have put it through. It shoots well and is very abrasion resistant. You need to spray this line with silicone spray every trip or it will start hanging up when you shoot it. also need to watch for the line twisting on the spool. we were having the problem but put a piece of electrical tape on the spool before we put the line on and it solved the problem.

These are a few of my reviews. I'll post more up later
