summit viper vs goliath

Recommended Posts

DRH1175

I have been saving my money and finally have enough. Forest lake Gander has had a few all season. Then I go there the other day to buy and all the goliaths are sold out. I have $200 in gift cards so I am stuck with buying it there. Now what? They have plenty of Vipers but I am 300lbs and 6'0" and thought I would fit the goliath better. What should I do. Wait it out and hope they get one in or break down and get the viper. I am going to camp ripley next week and I really need this stand. I also asked if they are getting any more in. All they will say is we are getting more stuff in on Thursday but they don't know what?

Try calling the Gander in St. Cloud or other locations.

Ask for the manager at Forest to call around to other Ganders and track one down for you and have it transfered to the Forest location. They really should be taking care of you.

I live in Maple Grove and the running joke is if you find something in-stock to consider yourself lucky!

Start looking around to the other Ganders, I bet you will find one somewhere.

I am about the same size and I have both. I prefer the Goliath as its just that little extra width that makes it a better fit, especially when the temps drop and the clothing starts getting a bit thicker / heavier.

Either way, it will fit you OK, its just that the Goliath is a bit more comfortable.

I will ask that. I may even ask if I can have the one hanging on the display. Gander is quite interesting. They have a goliath hanging on the display in forest lake. Yet have none for sale. They have loads of vipers and have none hanging. I talked to a guy on sunday. He came for a harness that was on sale in the add. And they only had 2 in the store and only the small 150lb models. Why would you have a sale item in the add and not have any in stalk. Maybe it is just me but If I was going to have a big sale on a certain item I would at the bare minumum actually have some to sell.

I don't mean to vent but I am quite upset right now for other reasons. I would hope that at the bare min. They could look around and have one shipped for me.

For safety and laibility reasons on their end they likely won't sell a display stand. Put the pressure on them to take care of you, the right manager should.

Thqnks,

I found one at the new blaine store and they gave me a 10% discount for all of my trouble. Gander mt screwed up a gift card that I bought and that is why they gave me a discount. Anyways I Have to comend the managers at both the Blaine and Forest lake stores. They did a lot to keep me a happy customer.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
