Ghostbuster Advisery
« on: March 22, 2017, 12:06:25 pm »
4.65 in the XG blanks have created an issue from the colorant.
I'd had 5 that were cracked all the way thru at the front hole out of 5000.
Freeze-thaw is the only explanation I can give and this is iffy?

Others have shown a thin tiny hair line crack in the same place, but not separated.

Thin line is OK unless it opens up, it will still land fish. 

If there's an issue please contact me asap.

All spoons are under warranty.  So, there's no out of pocket expense to you.

No other colors are of concern and are all rock solid.

Checked a box  of X-Glow spoon blank in storage.  All this inventory appears to be OK.

The color line that looks like a crack is not.
Tried to get this nose hole to part with plyers and it stayed one piece.

If you have any problems what so ever, your spoon with be replaced at no charge.

This issue is on the larger 4.65s.

Capt John,

Thx for the "heads up".

Checked my 4.65" XG Ghostbusters from last year... I see and feel something... but I don't think they are cracks.

Under magnification looks like "drag marks" from initial split ring install.
I know it isn't teeth marks because these sadly haven't seen water yet.

I do plan on splashing them this weekend...

No biggie here.

Thx again,
