Default Help, a FoxPro Sponsor is screwing up

I hate this. I just called BogPod to verify that BogPod is discontinuing the Wide Body 4" Rest. Yes the Wide body rest, item #735555 is indeed being discontinued. I asked why they would do that to their most popular rest, and he said they never knew it was that popular. Nobody ever gave them a positive review on their site, he said. I informed him of their popularity among predator hunters such as Dog Soldier, Al Morris, Abner, FoxPro Furtakers etc. I suggested they rethink this.

CONTACT THEM and express your concern. Call 573-445-9200

FoxPro as a manufacturer needs to make it's opinion known here.

If you don't already have the tripod it looks line Natchez still has some kits that include the 4" rest.

Thanks for the link NF, I was able to bag that tripod combo.
Hope it works as well as everyone says.
Thanks again Mark

Default Mission in full swing....

Got in touch with BTI (Markets Bog Pod) Sales/Marketing and gave it my spin. Could be the generic corporate response but it's a shot on target at least. This is the reply I received:


Dan,

We are currently considering bringing this product back into production. I am taking down contact information (emails) of anyone interested in the product and we will be back in contact if we are going to rerelease this soon.

Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

We thank you for contacting Battenfeld Technologies, Inc and for your interest in our products!



Thank you,

Nic Maglio

Have a call and email into Midway USA to express the interest in the Wide Body Rest.....but knowing how corporate retailers work......there needs to be a whole lot of interest for them to initiate a order and spark production up again.

Default Unexpected Update

Totally out of the blue.....Received another email from Nic Maglio of BTI. Said he found a few of the Wide Body Rests that were service/repair parts. No QC stem attached. Said because of the interest I showed in the discontinued rest he is sending me one of them....and I imagine whomever else here that showed interest as well.

This is awesome customer service......to come across parts and recall someone who inquired months ago?....wow. Another reason to love BTI products....

No stem is no problem.....any current QC stem will work. I have a few spares....; )

Bad part is......if they are willing to give their spare parts away.....chances are they will not be offered again in the near future......

On this weeks Foxpro Furtakers on the Outdoor channel both Al and Stacey Morris were both using the 4" rest on their Bog-Pods in New Mexico on some yotes while dodging those nasty Buzz worms lol.
