Remember I said on the Brand X page that I had
"been there and done that"? Terrible cliche, I know,
but it's a true story! I invented ESB after a day of fishing on
my native Houghton Lake. I was fishing with 2 rods rigged
identically. On one rod, I was hauling 'em in; on the other
rod, not a nibble. After trying everything I could think
of to get the slacker rod to produce, a little boatside research
showed me the problem. My bobber was set for 8 feet, but when I
dropped my jig at the side of the boat, it hung up at 1 foot. I
tried this experiment a dozen times and not once did my jig descend
more than 4 feet. After carefully checking my line for nicks
and knots (and not finding any), I finally noticed the tiny cut that
my line had made in the stop bead. Amazed, I checked out the
other old slip bobbers in my tackle box, and found all of them
cut. I knew that there had to be a better way.
The big advantage of ESB is that it has a stop bead
that your line won't
cut. Instead of plastic, the ESB stop bead is a highly polished
technical glass bead, one that took no small amount of searching to
find. Don't worry, it won't cut your line; as I said,
it's highly polished and smoother than the slippery rocks in a trout
stream. The high polish gives the added bonus of being much
smoother than plastic, so it causes less friction against your line
and your bait gets to the fish much faster than with an ordinary slip
float. The terminal end of the ESB tube is protected by a brass
guard. The ESB body and tube are rigid synthetic materials with
no cork or balsa to swell, split, or rot. The body and tube are
chemically welded together and will not seperate under any normal
(and most abnormal) fishing use. Add it all up and you have the
most reliable, durable, and fastest slip bobber in the world - the
Everlasting Slip Bobber! I'm not
guaranteeing that you'll catch more fish; that's up to you, but if
you don't, you won't be able to blame it on this slip bobber.
Nothing really lasts forever and I'm not going to try to tell you
that ESB will. The paint will eventually wear. You can break it
or lose it. But I will tell you this: I fished with my
original prototypes for as long as 9 months before losing all of
them, but I never wore them out.
See for yourself the difference
ESB can make in your success rate! You won't believe a slip bobber
can mean that much, until you try it!
How much is your fishing time worth?
