Thumbs up Jim Cosson Gigs

Well based on research on this forum and a few others I went and dropped $$ on two Cosson Gigs. I got one titanium and one surgical steel. First of I must say Jim Cosson is a true gentleman that take great pride in what he does. Really a nice guy who makes a great product that he stands behind. I guess you would want to stand in front of...lol...these things are sharp!

I mounted them on two Boutwell poles one 10 foot and one 12 foot. After 30 years of 1 1/4 wooden dowel and walmart gigs all I can say is wow. To top it all the first night we took them out our third fish was a personal record for me. We cleaned them about 20 hours after killing them and 20 hours later the big boy weighed 8 pounds and 12 ounces. I figure realistically after 20 hours in the cooler he probably dropped at least 4 ounces. So for the sake of bragging I am calling him a 9 pounder.

Thanks for building a great gig Jim and for selling them to us so late at night.

Jim builds a great gig. Best thats available. I'm glad you like the combo, let me know if you have any problems out of the handles. As long as you store them out of the weather/sunshine they should last you a long time.

Handles are great. I picked them up at Boyette Casey Hardware in Panama City. I did buy 2-3 feet longer than I wanted so I could cut them off and have a slightly thicker base.

Sorry guys for being off the forum for such a while, lots going on, I'm glad the gigs are working out for you, I have been way behind on making gigs, three friends and I rebuild a handicap van for a friend and now my mom has a broke hip. I am slowly getting some gigs ready for orders now so everyone please be patient with me and if ya don't hear from me give me a call, I still make gigs just one at a time
