great customer service-Midwestrodandreel

6 posts in this topic

In the day of no customer service,was very pleased with Bill and Al at Midwestrodandreel.Purchased a new summer fishing rod from them and there is nowhere else that you could go to get this kind of service.They sit down with you and show you how the rod is built,ask you what type rod you are looking,help you with any questions you have about type of rod your interested in.It has been a long time since I have made a purchase and left the store and thought this is the greatest service I have ever received. On top of that it looks to be a high quality piece of equipment. If you need a new fishing pole, summer or winter this is with out a dought the place to go. Al and Bill great job!!!!!

I'll second that! These guys know rods and the nice thing is that if you have a specific request they can accomodate you! They use high quality materials and take pride in what they do. Keep up the good work guys.

Isn't it nice to make a phone call to a company and the owner answers the phone or send an email and know that it's going straight to the head guy. Call or email Bill and he'll build a rod to your specifications. www.midwestrodandreel.com I've got the MIM28

28" Medium rod from Midwest. This is the rod I've been using for eyes and its working out great for me. Very good sensitivity, good backbone and a nice tip. I have a JR's ultra 8 reel on this rod and the balance is perfect. Its a pleasure to use this rod when I'm out jigging eyes all day. Up till now I've built most of my rods. Theres something to be said about the satisfaction and pride you get when you build your own rod but using Bills rods, I can see the pride he puts into them and knowing it was built for you will give you that pleasure.

Guys,

Wow!! Your kind words are very much appreciated from both Bill and myself. It was the main goal when we started our company that customer service would be the first and most important item we could offer. It is always nice to hear when you have satisfied customers who we know will take as much pride in using the rods as we did building them.

Thanks again for the great feedback!

I have 3 midwest rods. One UL wiht a wood handle, on ML amd one M.

Definitely super sensitivity and craftsmanship in these babies. I am happy with them so far.

For those of you thinking about a custom rod contact them and see what they have to say.

I have 4 Midwest Rods and love them all. I agree that Bill and Als customer service is second to none. As I have said before I had Bill do some special tweaking to my rods and they turned out even better than I expected. Something about using a rod that was made for you exactly how you wanted it that i love. Plus its got your name on it so you know nobody else has one just like it.

Bill has done some spiral wraps for me and man are they cool. Never used one before but now that I have Im sold on that design. Check them out at www.midwestrodandreel.com

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
