new guy here from northern Ontario Canada
just found this forum, and I like what I see.

Let me start off by saying I bought a C.I. Cumberland used it twice and it blew up on me 30' off shore... scared the hell out of me to say the least... you should of heard the "BOOM"

NOW to clarify, the bladder didn't blow it was the inside seam by the pocket that let go, I was still a float but the bladder was exposed and I'm glad it held as I was in a spring fed lake and it was cold...

I returned the unit to the store (no issues) they didn't have another one, So NOW I'm looking to find another one ASAP
so I can continue fishing a few of these spring fed lakes I found before the ice comes...lol

I had it set up pretty good too,
- Ideaz drill paddle
- teamfish CastMate V2‏ on both sides

but for now, I'm just using my boat (which I can't use on those lakes, as boat is too big) Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Anyways, just wanted to say HI really.

Keep up the good posts guys.

thanks for the info, already checked them out (that's still 175.00 U.S + shipping)
I'm going to make some calls in the morning here in Canada. I picked mine up for 175.00 CDN free shipping. If I recall one of the sister stores where I bought mine had 1 in stock
