fishing rod strike detector [ e-striker nano ] (Canceled)
Small enough to fit in a tackle box, yet mighty enough to land that monster catch!
This video was shot at night to emphasize the action and purpose of how e-striker nano will work in a set environment..
As a designer and inventor i was taught to do extensive research before coming out with a product. Most of my creative thinking happens when i am driving or when i am isolated in my own world of thoughts. I always think how to solve a problem and how to make it better, but most important how to deliver an excellent product and how the end user will benefit from it. As a pastime one of my favorite things to do is to go fishing in the mountains and experience the wonderful things we have. On one of my fishing trips, i noticed that some people were using bells, glow in the dark gadgets, etc.. to detect a strike on their poles. Well that is all good but when you get a strike you have to attend and remove the gadgets making it a time consuming agenda. Therefore i decided to create a device that will attend those issues.
I named the product (e-striker nano)
As a starving inventor and with my knowledge as a designer i can reach so far, that is why i am reaching out to all the "kick-starter " fans, members and non-members, if my project gets funded successfully i will personally ensure that the product i will create is top notch. I already have a Chinese manufacture in stand by ready for production. Through long and excessive back and forth emails with Mr. Kono Lau form the Chinese manufacture (Shenzhen Timebolong Co.,Ltd) the only thing that is holding us back is the funding of this project.
My intentions with (e-striker nano) is to put at least one on the hands of every fishermen out there, i intend to sell on my own website, sell to mom&pop stores, attend fishing conventions and most important to approach big companies like ; Bass-pro, Cabela's, Big5, Sport-Chalet, Walmart, etc..
I am not done, this will be a stepping stone to the future, i already have other products lined up on the drawing table. This is just the beginning for Anglerfish (currently under trademark process) , now i am done....
Thankx for your support in advanced...
Risks and challenges
