I designed Prowler Planers for any type of fishing but focused on kayak fishermen. Please read my blog http://planerboards.blogspot.com/ and let me know what you think. I don't sell them and hoping to license my patent. It would be really cool to have the Hobie logo on them.

Can you share any video of them in action?

I don't have any video of the Prowler but they are like BulletBobbers on steroids.

All BulletBobber and DualFin videos are on YouTube.

The BulletBobber can't troll fast like the Prowler with the hydrofoil!

And they can't plane out as far the Prowler. www.ProwlerPlaners.com

What I think is that you are not a very nice person. Show us something that will help getting a bait in front of a fish, THEN saying sorry I don't sell these. Something about this is not right. :-)

I am a nice person but not a big company with money to work with to do things right.

I am hoping to license my patent but not having any luck. The foam bodies are made and painted in China. I need to make new fixtures that hold them for cutting the slot in the band saw and drilling the holes. I need to find a company that can make the hydrofoils at price I can afford. Cutting them out of milk jugs isn't going to get it. I even have to drill the holes in the pegs.

I would sell you a 2" and 2.5" for $15 with free shipping if you will post a review.

I will license the patent for 5% royalty with $20K minimum guaranteed. I have about $20K in inventory counting the BulletBobber, DualFin and Prowlers and if finished and packaged the retail value is over $200K. I will require about $15 to $20K in labor and materials to get everything packaged up for sale.

I wish this was REAL and not just me playing with Power Point to add the Hobie Cat name.
