Title: Where to find Marmish rod in the US?
Post by: hobobob on Dec 26, 2017, 06:00 PM
It seems that non of the US online retailer are carrying this item. Not even on the marmish.ca site.  Anybody know where I can find a couple. Look for about 3-4 rods. Thanks.

I haven't seen any for quite a while. You may want to check out the jonttu rod @ yourbobbersdown.

Not a Marmish rod, but TRS in Appleton sells the Akara rods online:

I thought I was the only one interested in those things. Unfortunately I don't have any for sale, but I do have some crazy ones. My biggest issue is putting a snell knot on those micro jigs.

I have never seen one around, but something that might work for you would be the frabill black ops Palm rods.

Why donít you just order them from Marmish? I think I got mine in less than a week time.

Go to that big auction site and look for seller: ostapbender80

He'll send you four of them for $15 total.

I tried those knock off before. The fit and finish is nothing compare to the original.  Quite a few excess flashing inside.   I have sent marmish.ca an email to see if I can buy from them directly.

I use these and love them! Pistol case works great to carry them too!

The originals were made by Pirs of Russia and it looks like they have a standard and an Eco, or economy, model. $15 for four must be the Eco model.

Nice idea with the case, I'll have to get one. I have a couple new ones that came from another country over there, I'll look at them tonight. I'm thinking Ukraine.

I've got the jonttu from your bobber's down, and a couple of the ones from sportsmen's direct - no case yet to carry them

I have a Jontu but always go back to my Marmish rods - fit better in the hand and indicator is more durable.  Sad to see that they are tough to find anymore.  Even my son prefers them when the perch are on.  They are the ticket when perch are picky and light biting.  Let us know how they can be found.

The package from the ones say UK on them. My guess would be United Kingdom, I also have some of the ones from Akara.

I filed a complaint with paypal. I cannot believe that companies we support try to ripe us off. Their bad business practices should be passed on to the world-wide fishing community. I hope pay-pal sticks it to them.
