Skinzit Customer service
« on: Jan 11, 2017, 02:27 PM »
Just was emailing and talking to Skinzit Customer service.  They run an A+ show over there.  I dropped off my Skinzit to have them look at it and the owner met me at the door.  The problem was user error on my part but they were very helpful with my issues.  If you ever are thinking of getting a Skinzit know that they will take care of you!

Yup ~ full agreement.     ;)2

I watched the "Auto-running video", (GRR   :cookoo:), and came away thinking that is a wanton waste of good fish.     ???

I don't understand this product. It takes 15 seconds to de-skin a fish a remove the ribone. Maybe I am missing something  ???

I don't think it's about the time it takes, although I think it is faster than I am if there are a lot to be skinned.  It's more about the waste of meat.  Fact is, most folks myself included, aren't perfect at getting the meat off the filet every time.  Once in a while we really mess up a fish and waste a bunch of meat.  This product prevents that.  I have seen it in action and if I was cleaning buckets of fish, you bet I would have one.

My bad on no link. The owners live close to me and I  assumed everyone knew about them. Not a huge time saver when it's just you cleaning but if you have 3 or 4 guys it goes pretty quick. The meat saver part is the biggest plus. I fish a lot of over populated blue gill ponds and the skinzit makes the smaller gills worth keeping. $150 is a steep price.  But thankfully my in laws were very kind to me for Christmas and got me one.

Nope, YOU aren't. The people who bought them are missing an opportunity to learn the skill of game and fish processing.

You could say the same thing about $700 sonar units...What skill is involved in broadcasting a sonar beacon? It only takes like 10 seconds to know if there are fish under your hole with a $2 cup of maggots. A sonar isn't going to make them bite any better than the maggots...Just saying, learn the skill of fishing and you won't need to spend a grand on a sonar to help locate fish...

I've seen single fillet knifes that cost more than $150. If this product helps, why not? No different than giving someone $50 to process a deer, who cares? Lol

Having said that, I guess that makes PerchRapala the designated IceShanty fish cleaner lol good to know :)

So true RyanW,
                     But, a very inexpensive sonar, turned sideways down that hole will scan out 600' rotate 360* and if nothing is seen, best move 1/8 of a mile before wasting energy on another hole.    ;)2

Knife skills, game butchering/processing, and fish processing are viable skills needed in this world..

The $700 sonar unit doesn't catch the fish for you by pressing a button.

100% agree

Does the $1000 one?  Lol

With the way products are coming along it's only a matter of time before that's all it takes anymore. Mini underwater robots that just find the fish and bring back the fillets. I bet they'd sell out in a day.

Due to the better electronics and social media, Minnesota is considering reducing the limits on fish.  Angling is becoming much easier and starting to put more pressure on the lakes.
I fish a lot....I catch a little.

Since I received this item as a gift or even if I bought it, I lack the game butchering and fish processing skills.  This makes total sense.  If I had to guess, you sir are a democrat.  Your opinion matters to some people but not to me.  I do feel the same about learning to use a knife but if there is a better more efficient way then take advantage of that.  Or should we still be riding horses and not driving cars?  Using the skinzit you get way more meat than a fillet knife.   Under the rib meat you can get some with a fillet knife, but you get it all with the Skinzit.  If someone can afford it, I would recommend getting it and this thread was started to complement their outstanding customer service.  Some how it spun into you degrading people who use the Skinzit.  Good luck the rest of the season fishing and filleting!

If I am cleaning a bunch I use a Townsend fish skinner It is basically the same deal as a Skinzit with out the motor. Uses a key crank on the side. Three or four turns to remove the ribs from the meat and four or five to take the skin off. No wasted meat.
