NOVATO, CA. -
As the cost of living seems to increase daily and retail prices continue to
climb nationwide, the burden of those increased costs land squarely on the
shoulder of consumer. The fishing industry is no different, as prices of goods
have steadily climbed in recent history.
Powell Rods knows that increased costs can have an effect on an angler’s ability
to enjoy their pastime and the company has taken steps to help alleviate some of
the pressure brought on by rising costs.
Starting Monday, June 30, 2008 Powell Rods will institute a new, lower retail
price on all of their popular Powell Max Bass Rods. The new price points will
be $139.99 for all rods seven feet and shorter, while all rods longer than seven
feet will retail for $169.99.
Keith Bryan, President of
Powell Rods, said that the new pricing structure is the result of working with
current suppliers to procure materials and components with the long run in
mind. “Our Powell Max bass rods are made with the highest quality components,
and that is not going to change,” Bryan said. “Our suppliers have worked with
us to produce the best available pricing on long term partnerships, and we want
to pass on the benefit to the consumer.”
Bryan wanted to stress the fact that nothing in the product line would be
changing, other than the reduced price. “All of our premium quality components
will remain the same, from our blanks, guides, reel seats and handles,” noted
Bryan. “We are doing this to thank our customers for the success of our brand,
and make it easier for them to enjoy the sport they love with great equipment.
“At Powell, we have worked long and hard to be innovative and right now that
means going against the grain when it comes to setting our price points; we are
doing our best to work for our customers,” Bryan said.
