View Full Version : Anyone own a Blackhole rod?

I heard from an industry source that their rods are made inside NORTH Korea. Anyone else have a problem with that besides me, if true?

Tried casting one the other day, what a heavy pool cue.

If that's true then I wouldn't buy one

The website says they are manufactured in Korea and China. Anyone know kil? Let's ask him. He's on fb pretty regular catching something gigantic on a toothpick of a rod

I would say that it's a 99.99999999999% chance that they're made in South Korea. It's illegal to import anything from NK into the US.

Yeah. I know Mike. And I know what reality is.... Workers have been crossing the border to work on the other side and return at night for years.
Kil Song was reluctant to reveal much, actually anything, when I PMd him. So I still have my questions.....

great rods, power rods also. Kil is at RISSA every year showing them off.

Non issue here. Had long back and forth with Kil.
