It's just like fishing you need to hook them first. Then you real them in.
We have all been hooked.
Sunday, April 17, 2011 8:13 PM
i havent even got my magazines but love to test this reel
Monday, April 18, 2011 8:58 PM
ill like to test the reel to
Tuesday, April 19, 2011 8:49 AM
I just joined the club 4/19/11 Sounds like I was hooked and reeled in to LOL We will c if they send me anything. Maybe we should all try and figure a way to band together and protest what is going on with them. After all they got what they wanted (money) now its time to get what they promised US. Can any one think of a way to do it?
Tuesday, April 19, 2011 6:08 PM
yep me to they havent sent me anything to test.
Wednesday, April 20, 2011 10:31 AM
i want to teest something like this
Thursday, April 21, 2011 11:54 AM
would like to test this reel as im looking to buy a couple soon
Friday, April 22, 2011 10:50 AM
I'm starting to wonder about.I have been Waiting and Waiting to test but nothing.
Monday, April 25, 2011 10:21 AM
What you paid for was a subscription to a magazine, let's not forget that fellas. If I'm not mistaken there are 7 issues released each year, so if you haven't received an issue it's most likely due to the fact that some months are skipped over and you receive 1 magazine in a 60 day period. The other offers and inclusion in the Field Testing program are added perks, not so much free tackle and gear that you're entitled to from day one. "...now it's time to get what they promised US." - Kgerow,. Kgerow, I wasn't promised any items to field test and I'm pretty sure you weren't either. Perhaps you should read up on the program a little more. You fill out a field test profile form telling the NAFC how often you fish, where you fish, what you fish for etc. then IF there are items that match your profile you MAY be sent something to test and keep. Nothing in there implies any promises or guarantees made by the NAFC. Sorry to sound so negative, but I'm annoyed at how many posts I find on this site from angry members griping because they haven't received anything. Read what you're getting into first and wait patiently. Your other option is coming on here, posting about how unfair your membership is and behaving like a pissed off 4 year old on Christmas morning. Take your pick.
Wednesday, April 27, 2011 10:10 PM
I tested some bobbers and Hooks but nothing else. Membership got cancelled due to a problem i had, now im back again hope to test more stuff...
Sunday, May 01, 2011 12:13 AM
i havent got my free gift yet from joining the club al i got was a bill and a sticker and 4 hooks
Monday, May 02, 2011 5:04 PM
id love to try this reel out im a lifetime member and have not got to test anything
Monday, May 02, 2011 11:53 PM
i didn't know that this whole thing was a join to get stuff site. i was hoping this club was a fishing club at least that what i paid for and the only thing i am looking for is people to talk about fishing to. and hear other peoples stories. im 19 yes i would love to try stuff out but i would reather just go fishing.
Wednesday, May 04, 2011 10:05 AM
I have not received anything as of yet myself, maybe in the near future? (I would not hold my breath however)
Thursday, May 05, 2011 11:59 AM
i've been a member for almost a year and im still holding my breath. lol
Thursday, May 05, 2011 3:56 PM
I didn't join to get free suff! That would be a nice perk. However I joined to hear about new fishing tecniques, new stuff and to support the NAFC in their fight for my fishing rightrs. I am a life member and am extremly satisfied with everything except their salt water coverage and that is getting better
Saturday, May 07, 2011 6:55 AM
i thought people joined to experence different ideas and different ways on improveing their fishing.not to gripe and complain about not getting free stuff.ive got 1 junk fishing pole and a few hooks and i use nuts and bolts for weights so stop complaining and enjoy the sport of fishing.
Saturday, May 07, 2011 6:58 AM
some people never get the chance to enjoy it
Monday, May 09, 2011 8:48 AM
I`ve seen words people don`t know how to spell.The word all was spelled al,and the word Great was spelled Grate.There are other mistakes as well but too many for me to mess with.Wait till you kids get out of school to join clubs.
Monday, May 09, 2011 4:54 PM
Ihave tested a few things nothing major. bobber hooks and some bait. You start small and work your way up to rods and reals. The main thing is you actually have to test the product and give a real honest review. If you do that then They have you test out more stuff. It took about a year to get my first product test. And really theres a million testers and only so many products.Very satisfied with the club. Actually a magazine that doesnt regurgitate what all the others state.
Tuesday, May 10, 2011 10:56 PM
This would be sweet to try
Sunday, May 15, 2011 11:10 AM
well I have been amember for a mouth and I have got hook's, line, a scale, 2 filetknives, 2 stickers, 1 magazine. An now I have been asked to become a life member.Oh ya I will be. But as far as testing. I just looked in my box an all I need is there so now that the ICE is gone hear in Wi. waters I'am going FISHn BY
Monday, May 16, 2011 2:55 PM
Theres alot of negativity on here I just became a member and to b honest it was mostly to try out free stuff and alittle for some tips but i'm sure were all grown here nothing is free 5 hooks and a sticker that was free come on there not gonna give free a $120.00 anything count all the people on here and add that up i'm sure at some level they give free stuff and if not so what $12.00 for a year the first great tip u get out of it pays that $12.00 and if it adds to the fun I have with my kids keep the free stuff and if you dont like N.A.F.C cancell
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 4:30 PM
happen to me too if they dont send me something im going to sue!!!|:
Tuesday, May 31, 2011 11:21 AM
takes up to a year to get your testing product so you could be waiting awhile
Saturday, June 04, 2011 10:51 PM
i got this reel and i just became a meber yesterday
Monday, June 06, 2011 4:57 PM
i just joined and you have to sign up to be a field tester
Thursday, June 09, 2011 11:40 AM
Just got some free line... Thanks! Now i dont have to go out and buy any LOL
Sunday, June 12, 2011 3:13 PM
Since '07 I've gotten line hooks bobbers an filet knife adn talke box rust inhibitor. You need to re do your profile every now again (yearly?) Truly, the only thing you paid for was a magazine subscription. Someti,mes they may throw some average gear to upgrade your membership (I got a rod and reel for upping to Life Member) and the free gifts for trying the book collection, or the knife collection, or the art collection or the...
Wednesday, June 15, 2011 3:18 PM
Ive heard much about the okuma citrix, i own a okuma tormenta. But this citrix would complete my rod, and I suggest people get this reel. Ive heard great things!
Monday, June 20, 2011 10:53 AM
just got my line with the bobbers and a book but u have to pay for the book i thought this is free !
Thursday, June 30, 2011 5:54 AM
Welcome to capitalism. This club is in it to make money so try to understand or perhaps consider moving to Europe (Greece may be a bad idea, their socialism has them in a bit of a bind right now). The club will send you tons of stuff supposedly for free and then you'll get follow up stuff that is not cheap. Some will regard it as a good deal, some won't, but you have a CHOICE (God Bless America) to opt out. As for the member test program, I have been a life member of NAFC for 6 yrs and just this winter, I received this reel to test (Woo Hoo!). I have clicked my butt off on the contests for over 6 yrs, nothing, and since I moved to the coast and spend my time in saltwater, the mag really does me no good. BUT, the NAFC supports conservation and that's pretty much why I joined in the first place. Our country is in a heck of a mess because we got too many people waiting around for free stuff. I'd think NAFC members were better than that. God Bless
Friday, July 15, 2011 12:09 AM
i just joined a few days ago in hopes to hear real fishing tips, tricks and secrets to help improve my catch count and to load my family up in the boat splash around the local fishing hole enjoying quality time with whats important family. maybe im wrong but is it or is it not what we go to work day in and day out is about enjoy the so few hours we get to spend with family's hunting fishing making lifetime memories. looking at some not all of the comments sounds like me and my brothers did back in preschool he got this he got that. well something your parents should have told you growing up " you want something get off the couch make money and buy it then its yours do with it what u want" sure it would be nice to get a reel or any product to test but be thank full you can get real opinions from people doing the same thing we do before you spend your own money to buy one hell you want something for free join welfare me ill work to get what i want
thanks NAFC love the knot test thats provided for free to us
Friday, July 15, 2011 3:42 PM
I think this is a great program ITS ALL ABOUT FISHING NOT STUFF HELLO!!!!
Monday, July 18, 2011 11:15 PM
I got my line, bobbers, and book but thats not a field product. They make it sound good with all this free stuff and products to test and keep free then you pay your dues and some new guy comes and gets the the sweet real the next day their are alot of people who need to get a product to test and yeah we might have alot of fishing stuff to talk about and programs but don't advertise free products to test and keep if you don't plan on doing it hope to here from you soon or get something to test
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 12:10 PM
Well, I only done the 30 day free trial, and not even a week in I got a bill, and they don't even have the courtesy to send me a bobber or hook.lol If I don't like how they do this, I just won't pay. Makes sense to me, I'm tired of paying for crap that I don't even get on other programs, so that's what I have to say.
Friday, August 05, 2011 2:43 PM
What a riot! All u fishy folks are Suckers! Can't quit laughing that u took the bait and ran with it justin......."next day." Like Larry says, "That's funny right there. I don't care who you are. That's funny."
Kings will be biting on southern Lake Michigan soon. Can't wait. Semper Fi.
Tuesday, August 16, 2011 7:29 PM
I have been a life member for 14 years and have tested nothing. However they will give you a decent rod and reel when you are alife member. You also get lots of stuff to buy or send back ie; silver coins, fishing knives, fish finders etc.
Tuesday, August 23, 2011 7:02 PM
I guess the people who feild test these products are those who works for the company! i guess i was suckered in to lol i can cancel haha
Wednesday, August 31, 2011 10:24 PM
Pro fisherman get to test this stuff. If you thought you would get something free lots of luck.
Thursday, September 15, 2011 4:25 PM
Arew you serious a three hundred dollar book club? Magazine subscription?
Sunday, September 18, 2011 3:14 PM
I have been a member since 09 and the only thing ive tested has been a new style hook for crappie fishing.the club dues that you pay is so Steve can go fishing all over the country on our dime.
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 5:24 AM
wow i joined to recieve nothin then wow
Wednesday, September 21, 2011 12:38 PM
All of you cry babies make me sick, and I personally thank God that I'm no fishing partner of yours...God forbid if the fish just were'nt hitting anything; why don't all of you cry babies do us other NAFC members who haven't received anything to test but don't complain about it a huge favor, write repeated posts to the club and specifically ask to test out the new Neck Anchor. Then go find two or three of your other cry baby club members, row out, or motor out to the deepest spot you can find, secure Neck Anchor tightly around your necks, and then jump over board. Oscar 3523 I salute you sir!

Monday, October 03, 2011 5:34 PM
Says I need to review six books there.
Monday, October 10, 2011 12:42 PM
i am a new life member since 6/2011 . I love bait casting fishing and have not been able to field test anything yet .i would love to test the okuma citrix reel if i could please. thank you, tbrault 1
Saturday, October 15, 2011 10:38 PM
I would like to test this reel never used the brand before
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 3:03 PM
It would be nice if we all could be field tester and get free stuff but that is the luck of the draw. I feel we are all sport men&women we should seek more knowledge about fishing that is more valuable then the free gift. Just remember we all started out with just a few things to do with and the love of the sport of fishing. CDYER2
Sunday, October 30, 2011 10:48 AM
looks like a nice reel but i havnt rtested or recieved anything yet xcept a bill b4 my free tryal ended
Wednesday, November 02, 2011 5:05 PM
NAFC sucks. they say we can test products, but who knows if these prducts are actually tested or they just say they are. i think its BS
Wednesday, November 09, 2011 7:42 AM
good things come to those who wait. remember this is fishing and not a game show, we wait to see if we get the big one from the water and not the welfar line boys.....buck up!
Saturday, November 12, 2011 3:28 PM
I go bass fishing for calicos and this looks like a great reel. Would love to test it
Tuesday, November 29, 2011 10:55 AM
i love to fish all most ever day i have a smile boat i take out sometime.i love to fish .JOHNR
Saturday, December 03, 2011 3:28 PM
Product Testing is a very popular benefit of the Club and we have thousands of Members’ Profiles on file. Please be patient, then when we have a product available that best fits the profile information you submit to us, we’ll send you the product. After you receive a product, you’ll need to submit another Product Testing Profile Form in order to be eligible to test another one. Note: It will take time to receive a product, depending if we have products that align with your profile information.(You must first submit the form! and then resubmit ever time you get a product. It may take a while sometimes but they do have products.)
Monday, December 05, 2011 11:01 AM
Children behave! If you are a member, it was by your own choice. I have been a life member since 2002 and I got exactly what I joined the club for: INFORMATION ABOUT FISHING AND NEW PRODUCTS. The memeber testing area is a perk I have participated in a couple of times already and I have followed the associated rules. I don't think all this whining does anything positive for any of us. The club only gets a limited number of products from the companies to give out to members to try, so try to be patient. In the mean time, enjoy your reading.
Friday, December 23, 2011 4:11 AM
would like to tested this reel out ?
Thursday, January 05, 2012 7:25 AM
Thursday, January 05, 2012 7:26 AM
this club is fucking worthless, fuck you all
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 3:34 PM
would love this test!
Tuesday, January 31, 2012 8:37 PM
I have been a member for a long time and still haven't gotten to test anything like this. Sad... just sad!
Saturday, February 04, 2012 12:00 PM
everybody has to beleav in sumthin i beleav i will go fishin hang n there lol
Saturday, February 04, 2012 12:05 PM
however i will pay for what i want to test but for what i keep hearin they dnt send anythang.
Monday, February 06, 2012 5:51 PM
can i test this product please
Friday, February 10, 2012 6:32 AM
I have been a member for 7 years, in that time i have had the oppertunity to test 3 products.The last one was the OKUMA reel,it was great that they picked me,but this is not why I became a member. I wanted to find out more about FISHING and others tricks of the trade. Over the years I have found ways to improve my fishing, and these ,I have passed to my friends,so STOP, LOOK & LISTEN,read the articals, watch the videos, and lister to what others have to say about our favorite sport. Buy a product ,try it out then comment about it , don't complain about what you didn't get. Get what you came for...... INFORMATION.
Friday, February 10, 2012 5:00 PM
i see there are ppl out there who enjoy fishing tackle more than they do fishing, you want free stuff? fish tourneys with what you got, win, and become a pro. hahaha they get free stuff daily its a blurry dream but just get out there and fish
Tuesday, February 14, 2012 4:09 PM
we what to try this we have all open face reels
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 10:28 PM
Would hope the people testing gear would write a little more then a 2 sentence in their review. Like to of had a little more info on the Okuma Citrix reel then its a good reel fo rthe money.
NMFC should make them at least fill out a questioner about the product. Like how did the reel feel in your hand, what type of fishing you used it for. Line test. did you catch fish and how big, how did it handle a big fish if you hooked one. Was there any problems wth backlash?
Just a thought, after all isn't that why they are testing the reel or product in the first place?
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 10:35 PM
all you guys complaining about not getting anything for free must all be democrats and voted for Obama. This is a fishing magazine not a give away magazine. This is the problem everyone wants something for free like its some kind of entitlement.
$12 dollars a year for a great magazine about a sport we all love to do is nothing. Heck its the price of a 12 pack of beer. Stop your sniveling.
Monday, February 20, 2012 1:56 PM
ya i didnt even get one thing worth taking out in the water
Sunday, February 26, 2012 4:03 PM
I recently bought a new carrot stick and I would greatly enjoy testing out this reel on it
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 12:20 AM
G Binkley there are a lot of people that needs to grow up. just think how does everybody fish there are some days you dont even get a bit. its the same way with big clubs. if you enter a fishing club or any other clubs theres know Guarantee. it is a privilege to Test fishing Gear if you get picked. JUST THINK LIFE IS NOT EVEN FREE?
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 8:50 AM
I have never seen such a whimmy bunch of cry babies in my life, since the last democratic convention. Everyone wants somethig for nothing, You are getting stuff for free, its called knowledge and free fishing tips.
Yes it would be nice to get stuff to test, but if thats why you are here, you better put your tail between your legs and go down to your local Tackle store and see how much free stuff they will give you.
I happen to think what NAFC is doing is great, I have been able to read reviews and they have helped me with some important tackle buys.
I for one yes would love to test soem gear, but if it doesn'r happen I'm not going to sit around crying about it. How about going out and getting a job and buying it yourself????
Friday, March 02, 2012 2:42 PM
I can't believe the amount of people who can't spell, form a sentence or use basic grammar or punctuation in the discussions above or on the internet in general. I don't claim to be perfect, but you can barely read some of the posts listed above or on the internet these days.
Monday, March 05, 2012 11:06 AM
if you dont buy the books you wont get to try anything
Wednesday, March 07, 2012 8:14 PM
I would love this to be my first baitcaster!
Monday, March 19, 2012 4:00 PM
WAAAAAYYYYY Too many crybabies here. I'm going to Basspro to BUY what I want with money I EARNED and then I'm headed to the lake. To all of you crybabies . WAHHHH WAHHH BOOO HOOO I didn't get my free stuff WAHHHHHHH.... BOO HOO The fish aren't biting.... My diaper is dirty.... WAHHHHH
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 1:16 PM
iv never used a baitcaster but id like to test one out...
Thursday, March 22, 2012 9:18 PM
To all you cry babies, Heading out to Lake Aqua Milpa in Mexico to try our some gear I got at Tackle Warehouse. No they didn't give it to me but I can demo some of their reels before I decide to buy. All you have to do is pay the shipping.
Buy the way thanks again to NAFC for alll their info and tips. To your winers, How about going out and getting a job and like most of us, then you can buy your own stuff?
Sunday, April 08, 2012 11:53 AM
Hey Guys, I haven't even got my free gifts for joining yet. But, that's not why I joined. I joined to learn some new fishing tips and to see what new fishing gear is out there. So hang in there and try to get what the club is really all about.!!!!!
Thursday, April 26, 2012 12:39 AM
i dont really need to feild test this cause i already own it and its the bet reel ive ever used
Thursday, May 03, 2012 6:19 AM
I REALLY WANT TO TEST HAVE NOT TESTED ANYTHING FOR A LONG TIME PLEASE PICK ME I FEEL LIKE IM NOT REALLY PART OF THE CLUB ANYMORE
Sunday, May 13, 2012 11:18 PM
can i please test this out for you guys
due to the reason because my diawa megaforce wont engage anymore after casting i have to engage it by hand
Thursday, June 07, 2012 10:59 AM
i need to test this out on the big bass ive been catching in the ponds ect. I WOULD LOVE TO TEST THIS OUT!
Thursday, June 07, 2012 1:43 PM
Guys you know what better then bitching about not getting something to test, How about getting a job and buying your own gear? Do you honestly think they can give everyone a new reel or rod to test. The real reason for the Magazine is to supply readers with information and technical info on how to catch fish, and what gear works and doesn't.
Thursday, June 07, 2012 1:47 PM
What a Great reel for the money get a Smoke 150 in either 7.3:1 0r 5.3:1 they both cast a mile, even into the wind, and have the power to pull your fish out of the heavy stuff. Caught over 200 fish over 3 days on a recent trip to Lake Aqua Milpa. Largest 7 lbs most in the 2 - 3.5 lb class. Took reel apart after wards and there is no visible signs of wear.
Friday, June 29, 2012 1:49 PM
please read the complaints against the NAFC
Only registered users may post comments.
Thursday, July 05, 2012 6:21 PM
Lol... If I was a company looking for someone to test my product I wouldn't pick any of you cry babies.
