I have not been very impressed with Kevin Hawk’s Fishing Tools so far. I’m not sure if the reviewer was fishing and did not know how to use them or if the reviewer made it up as he went along. Or perhaps he didn’t make it up at all.
If you read the review of these products, you’ll see that Kevin Hawk claims he knows the “best gear”. Maybe, he does, but I’ve never heard him make any claim to being the best in any other field. He claims to know how to fish the right way. He claims to be an expert on a few things but not all.
He calls himself a fisherman and an “expert” on fishing. He admits that most of what he knows about fishing is all theoretical and, let’s face it, this isn’t exactly a field that many people take serious. After all, if you can’t go and catch fish with some kind of tackle, you don’t really get a lot of knowledge out of it.
So, when he discusses fishing and his fishing tools, he makes no real claims. He just claims to know. That’s enough for me.
In the end, Kevin Hawk is an amateur fishing instructor, an experienced bass-hunter, and a writer. I really can’t make too much of what he has to say. I just don’t think he offers anything that’s not already out there.
What I do think though, is that he should have offered more expert advice and information. That is the main reason I am a little bit disappointed. He talks a good game, but when he actually starts talking, his lack of experience doesn’t give him much of a leg to stand on. Of course, I could be mistaken. You never know. We only have limited exposure to his product, but we could be missing something. If you have a chance to try these tools out yourself, please consider it.
If you are already using the Kevin Hawk’s Fishing Tools, you should review what’s already been said here. Make note of where he tells you to use the tackle, and if he doesn’t mention this, then you might want to re-read the review to ensure that you have followed his advice correctly. Especially, with the hook and sinker reel.
The rod mentioned is an 8 lb. monofilament rod. You should use a mono-filament reel to test these items. The reel should also be of the same class and weight as the rod.
When using the rod, move it from side to side. You should also find out what your casting distance is from center to center. If you don’t know, then you’ll need to re-read the review.
While I agree that a small number of people have no idea how to cast a reel, there are a large number of people who aren’t being completely honest about their abilities when it comes to fishing. I also think that some of these folks are taking this too far. We don’t want to become the Little Rascals, and I don’t want to see you sitting on the bench until next year, either.
If you are getting the product, then you should feel free to re-read this review, not just to see if you find anything you didn’t know about it but also to see if you learn anything new about it. Don’t believe everything you read online. Do your own research and don’t get sucked into the marketing hype of new products and companies.
