ALIPAC Endorses Maria Espinoza for Congress Against Rep. Culberson

Raleigh, NC, USA — Contact: ALIPAC.us | (866) 703-0864 | WilliamG@alipac.us

Alipac

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is endorsing Maria Espinoza for Congress today in her bid to replace illegal immigrant amnesty supporter Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) in the GOP primary of 2016 in the 7th Congressional District of Texas.

Maria Espinoza

Maria Espinoza is the National Director of the Remembrance Project, which raises public awareness of the many Americans killed each year by illegal immigrants. These thousands of deaths each year occur due to the political sabotage of our nation’s border and immigration laws. Maria’s national leadership efforts against illegal immigration and any form of amnesty for illegals has earned her a great deal of respect from many leaders and activists in the national movement to secure America’s borders.

Representative John Culberson was recently added to ALIPAC’s Cantor List which displays more than 150 incumbent lawmakers who are like deposed Congressman Eric Cantor on immigration issues. (Click for profile)

Culberson was added to the list because he voted for the Ryan/Obama Omnibus funding bill that funded Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty orders which Texas and 25 other states are suing to stop, illegal alien sanctuary cities like Houston and San Francisco, and Obama’s dangerous Syrian refugee and border surge illegal immigrant resettlement programs.

Congressman John Culberson’s vote for the omnibus spending bill also supported a sneaky amendment that quadruples the number of unskilled workers allowed to immigrate to America each year while denying funding for the promised 700 miles of improved border walls and fencing!

“John Culberson will be thrown out of Congress in a landslide like Eric Cantor if Maria Espinoza can raise enough funds and volunteers to inform enough Republican voters in her district of Culberson’s vote for amnesty for illegals, increased legal immigration, and Obama’s unpopular amnesty and resettlement programs,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Maria Espinoza has been a champion for the families that have lost loved ones to the illegal alien invasion of America supported by politicians like Obama, Ryan, Boehner, and Culberson. Our organization stands ready to help her, and others like her, any way we can!”

Houston, Texas, is in the 7th Congressional District and is one of ALIPAC’s largest bases of support. ALIPAC’s President William Gheen is heard frequently on the Houston radio station KTRH, and he made the “Revolution Now America” speech to over 15,000 people in the Sam Houston Speedway Tea Party event of April 15, 2010. (Click to view)

ALIPAC is calling for candidates like Maria Espinoza who support America’s existing border and immigration laws, instead of any form of amnesty that would further compromise our laws, to step forward to challenge all GOP incumbents on the Cantor List.

ALIPAC is calling for voters in the 7th Congressional District to support Maria Espinoza, and for volunteers and donors from across America to converge and focus their support on electing Maria Espinoza for Congress 2016! (Click to visit her site)

The award is sponsored by CPI Industry and Climate Control Middle East magazine, judged and evaluated according to their systems and processes, and monitored by third-party auditing firm KPMG. The theme of the Fifth Annual Climate Control Awards, according to CPI Industry’s Editorial Director & Associate Publisher, B. Surendar, was ‘Inter-connected in thought and execution’.

“Tower Tech wishes to thank our outstanding customers for their support and for making Tower Tech a success in the Middle East. Furthermore, we thank our talented sales representatives Trane Middle East & Africa (UAE and Qatar) and Radian Oil & Gas (Saudi Arabia and Bahrain) for representing us with distinction in the GCC region,” said Daniel Coday, Sales Manager – International for Tower Tech.

Mr. Wasfi Hassan, Head of Mechanical Department for Allied Consultants in Dubai, attended the award ceremony and was involved in a 5,000 ton district cooling plant project in Dubai that selected Tower Tech cooling towers in 2013. Mr. Wasfi reminisced over some of the driving factors for choosing this specific tower. “The variable flow distribution system, multiple bottom-mounted fans, and enclosed basin design [is what] first attracted my attention. When operating the towers we were surprised to get performance exceeding the design value in such a humid environment. It was great to see Tower Tech get this deserved award.”

Upon learning about the award, Mr. Syed Younus Ahmed, Director, HVAC Operations and Maintenance at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia said, “congratulations to the entire Tower Tech team.” When asked about his experience with operating Tower Tech cooling towers he replied “It’s almost impossible to perceive how truly process and environmentally friendly this cooling tower is.”

Tower Tech CEO Robert C. Brink stated, “Our vision is to be the most customer-driven cooling tower company in the world – the standard by which all other cooling tower companies are measured. We thank CPI, Climate Control Middle East magazine, our amazing customers throughout the GCC region, and our GCC factory certified representatives Trane Middle East & Africa and Radian Oil & Gas.”

Mr. Brink added, “With the recent introduction of our new TTXR line, Tower Tech offers even greater performance at reduced installed fan power and footprint. The TTXR is more affordable for mid and large sized projects with the same unique counterflow design solutions.

St. Augustine, FL, USA — Fun, personalized Apple & Android technology lessons for seniors comes to the Jax Beaches.

Local entrepreneur Michael Schmitt uncovered an educational need while working for a major telecom company. Technology was advancing too quickly for some of his clients to keep up with. Frustrated by the way they were losing touch with loved ones, particularly grandparents with their grandchildren, they sought Michael’s help to learn how to use their Apple and Android phones.

Michael began helping his clients with everything from basic operations (how to text, make calls, email, etc.) to customized solutions for interests and/or special needs. Throughout this process, he tapped into his true passion: teaching. Prior to working in technology, he ran a business in Italy dedicated to teaching scientific and business English. Combining his current knowledge and teaching expertise, he took his services to the next level with the creation of his latest business, Learn4Fun4Ever.

ALIPAC Opposes Immigration and Refugee Increase in Spending Bill

Raleigh, NC, USA (December 17, 2015) — Contact: William Gheen | (866) 703-0864 | WilliamG@alipac.us

Alipac

Americans for Less/Legal Immigration PAC is activating its networks, which have helped defeat amnesty legislation six times in DC, to call against the omnibus spending package because the bill contains funding for unlimited Muslim refugee resettlement programs, funding for Obama’s DACA and DAPA illegal immigrant amnesty orders, and a sneaky provision that will quadruple unskilled labor visas that would displace more American blue collar workers!

ALIPAC is also asking activists to contact the campaigns of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz to ask them to call for GOP Primary challengers for any Republican that votes for this horrible spending bill since many lawmakers currently being targeted for supporting amnesty on ALIPAC’s Cantor List (click to view) are expected to vote for the bill.

“The DC establishment wants a vote on this horrible spending bill right on top of Christmas when they expect citizens to be less alert and reactive to their treachery! The fact this bill contains funding for all of Obama’s ‘immigration as a weapon’ plans including a four fold increase in unskilled immigration shows that DC lawmakers have great contempt for the very Americans they serve,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “The GOP lawmakers planning to vote for this bill should remember that the filing period for federal office is currently open in many states and the GOP primary voters who support candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz will be primed to throw out any lawmaker that votes to fund Obama’s amnesty orders and Syrian refugee resettlement!”

ALIPAC opposed Paul Ryan’s ascension to Speaker of the House due to his well documented support for amnesty for illegal aliens. This spending bill shows that Ryan is willing to achieve amnesty for illegals by backing and protecting Obama’s version of amnesty. ALIPAC has also opposed Muslim refugee resettlement programs because such immigrants cannot be properly vetted to exclude terrorists.

American activists are encouraged to flood DC offices with angry calls opposing the Omnibus Spending bill, while talk radio shows and media still loyal to the American public and Constitution are being asked to relay this warning about the bill to larger audiences.

For more information or to schedule interviews about the omnibus spending bill, legal immigration, illegal immigration, and refugee resettlement programs that harm American citizens, please visit http://www.ALIPAC.us.

When rates do rise, experts predict that consumers will immediately begin shopping for better returns for their savings. This will leave banks and credit unions competing for new money, jockeying to offer the most competitive rates for interest earnings.

To prepare for pending interest rate increases, Market Rates Insight has developed a mobile alert tool that gives subscribers an email alert with the latest interest rate changes from preselected competitors. With Mobile Rate Move Alert, financial executives can keep watch on competing institutions and products, and adjust their own rates as needed to stay ahead of rates in their market area.

“With the ongoing economic recovery, it’s been a long time since banks have had to compete on interest rates. Consumers have been waiting for rates to improve before investing their savings, and when the Fed does increase interest rates, there is a going to be a flood of rate shoppers looking for new financial products,” said Rick Barham, founder and CEO of Market Rates Insight. “Our Mobile Rate Move Alert product is designed to help our bank and credit union customers stay ahead of the competition and track rate changes as they happen.”

Mobile Rate Move Alert allows subscribers to select specify financial institutions and interest products. Products to be monitored can be selected by company, product type, region, terms, tiers, and other criteria. When a rate changes, subscribers receive a message sent directly to their mobile device with details about the competitor, the product, and the rate change.

Mobile Rate Move Alert is just the latest self-service research tool included in Market Rates Insight’s MyRI suite. MyRI gives users a variety of web-driven research tools that track the latest in deposits, rates, and fees. MyRI provides access to bank rate and fee data nationwide, allowing financial executives to assess competitive rates, understand pricing trends, and conduct market research to help them make more informed product and marketing decisions.

San Francisco Federal Credit Union Introduces 100% Home Financing with POPPYLOAN™

New Mortgage Now Available for San Franciscans Who Can’t Make a Down Payment in Skyrocketing Bay Area Housing Market.

San Francisco Federal Credit Union Logo

San Francisco, CA, USA (December 10, 2015) — San Francisco Federal Credit Union today announced the availability of a new home purchase loan option for San Franciscans struggling with Bay Area housing prices. The POPPYLOAN™ mortgage offers up to 100 percent home financing with the possibility of zero down payment required for credit union members seeking to buy a new home.

POPPYLOAN was created in response to skyrocketing home prices throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Many San Franciscans are paying more than the average mortgage payment in rent every month, but they cannot buy a home because they cannot save enough for the 20 percent down payment required for a conventional mortgage. To help fellow San Franciscans make their dream home a reality, San Francisco Federal Credit Union created the Proud Ownership Purchase Program for You – POPPYLOAN.

POPPYLOAN is available to anyone who works in San Francisco or San Mateo Counties and can be used to purchase a home anywhere in the nine Bay Area Counties: San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, or Solano. Qualified borrowers can finance up to 100 percent of the purchase price of a home, up to $2 million. There is no added requirement for private mortgage insurance (PMI).

“We see POPPYLOAN as a game-changer for the San Francisco real estate market,” said Rebecca Reynolds Lytle, Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer for San Francisco Federal Credit Union. “Too many of our members have given up hope of buying a home because of escalating home prices and the required down payment. However, these same families are paying more than a mortgage payment for monthly rent. Paying $3,600 for a one-bedroom apartment is about the same as making a monthly payment on an $800,000 mortgage. We created POPPYLOAN to help middle class families realize their dream of buying a home without having to move out of the Bay Area.”

To qualify for POPPYLOAN, borrowers must be 18 years or older and purchasing a single family home, townhouse, condominium, or 2-to-4 unit multi-family dwelling as their primary residence. POPPYLOAN is structured as a 5/5 adjustable rate, 30-year mortgage. Interest rates and monthly payments are fixed for the first five years and every five years thereafter, with no more than a 2 percent increase every five years and no more than a 6 percent increase over the life of the loan. POPPYLOAN is not available for refinancing an existing mortgage.

“The rising cost of real estate is creating a housing crisis in San Francisco, and while POPPYLOAN isn’t a solution for everybody, we want to do what we can for our friends and neighbors,” said Steven Stapp, President and CEO of San Francisco Federal Credit Union. “We studied the problem and realized that there was no reason our credit union couldn’t offer up to 100 percent financing without requiring PMI. Other credit unions have had success with similar programs and we built POPPYLOAN as the best possible solution we could offer to our members.”

“Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch” Photography Book Captures Hardworking Legends

As discussions continue for the sale of the legendary 510,572-acre Waggoner Ranch, the future is still undetermined for what may or may not change for 26 cowboys at the largest ranch in the U.S. under one contiguous fence.

Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch - Book Cover

Fort Worth, TX, USA (December 10, 2015) — Young Texas photographer Jeremy Enlow captures a behind-the-scenes glimpse of these legends through his inaugural photography book, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch. In its second printing – first 1,500 books sold out in 10 days! – the limited-edition hardcover will be for sale at a book signing and presentation by Enlow.

Sunday, December 20
2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

“I’ve lived on and been a part of the Waggoner Ranch since I was six months old – almost 69 years. I grew up with the cowboys, ate at the wagon and the big round table at headquarters. I’ve known the cowboys who stayed 50 years and the ones just passing through,” said Helen Biggs Willingham, joint owner of the Waggoner Ranch.

“They rise before dawn, ride tall in the saddle all day whether the day is sunny or a cold and biting wind swirls around them as they saddle their chosen mounts. They no longer battle Indians and outlaws of old, but they face the elements of nature every day; dust, drought, rattlesnakes, gopher holes, ornery cattle and the ever-present mesquite.” Willingham continued. “Some people think of the cowboy as a half-mythological folk hero, just a symbol of the American West. The Waggoner Cowboys are real people. They are essential to the daily operation and success of this outfit. They are proud to ride for the 3D brand. Our cowboys have been a vital cog in the wheel of Waggoner success for many years. The pride they have in this organization is evidenced by the hard work they put in day after day, preserving a very special way of life.” (MEDIA NOTE – No further comments or interviews are available from the owners of the ranch.)

Fort Worth-based Jeremy Enlow was given exclusive access to the Cow Camp operation behind the prestigious reversed triple D brand of the Waggoner Ranch. “Most everyone I know with a ‘real’ job couldn’t last five minutes cowboying on the Waggoner,” said Enlow. “They physically abuse their bodies with a finesse that’s mastered with years of experience. There is no break until the job is done. Whether it rains, sleets or snows, the cowboys are always working.”

Enlow self-published the hardcover book (140 pages – 12″ tall x 10.5″ wide – 100# glossy stock). Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch retails for $58 – a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Waggoner Ranch Cowboys Fund. A select number of signed and numbered fine art prints are also available, starting at $1,500.

PinPoint Research Releases New Speech-To-Text Transcription Solution

Real-time Speech-To-Text Transcripts Capture the Voice of the Customer for CX Analytics and Timely Customer Response.

PinPoint Research Logo

Emeryville, CA, USA (December 9, 2015) — PinPoint Research, pioneers and innovators in IVR survey technology, today announced the addition of a new Speech-To-Text (STT) automated transcription system to its multi-modal survey research platform. The new Speech-To-Text capability is part of PinPoint’s Voice Driven Research™ strategy and gives customers highly accurate, real-time transcripts of voice data collected from IVR and mobile surveys. This solution driven by best-of-breed ASR (Automated Speech Recognition) technology provides a low-cost solution that delivers immediate and highly accurate transcripts of open-end voice responses to support text analytics, customer sentiment analysis, agent training, and customer experience monitoring.

Research shows that 90 percent of consumers would prefer to use their telephones to interact with vendors making voice-driven data collection the trend in IVR surveys. This is especially true for mobile phone users, since smartphone market penetration now exceeds 66 percent in the United States. Enabling major brands to capture and apply the voice of the customer to Enterprise Feedback Management System (EFM) and customer experience (CX) initiatives is an imperative to optimizing customer feedback to improve brand loyalty and customer value.

“Today’s customer experience research needs to capture the Voice of the Customer in real-time for effective research analytics, customer response, and enterprise CX reporting,” said Walter Good, President of PinPoint Research. “Our new Speech-To-Text system delivers transcription processing with greater accuracy, shortening data delivery time and dramatically decreasing the cost of transcription for CX survey insights. The CX market has recognized the value of consumer voice data for survey open ends, the problem is that it has been expensive and time consuming to process voice data to make it actionable to the brand. Our solution provides a radical decrease in the cost of transcription and shortens the wait time to minutes versus days.”

Not only does PinPoint’s Speech-To-Text system provide real-time processing of verbal responses, it also integrates Metadata to enhance analysis. Combining survey data with Metadata and transcripts provides more in-depth insight into open-ended questions and reveals the consumer attitudes, including emotion and sentiment analysis that are most important to the brand. PinPoint’s solution also includes a certified Accuracy Audit that measures transcription accuracy and shows statistical reporting accuracy across a range of variables including phone type, geography, language, etc.

Included with the PinPoint’s Speech-To-Text solution is the option to automatically monitor and redact PCI DSS and PII data from voice and text transcripts to reduce liability. It also can be integrated across omni-channel data collection systems, and respondents can leave voice messages as part of IVR and mobile surveys. In addition to training and customer monitoring, PinPoint’s speech-to-text system can escalate customer responses to the call center using voice-driven data to trigger near real-time push alerts.

About PinPoint Research
Since 1986, PinPoint Research has been developing state-of-the-art research technology for use by market research firms, survey services, and global brands. A pioneer in interactive voice response (IVR) surveys for consumer research, PinPoint Research offers customers hosted services capable of handling millions of simultaneous survey responses. The company is also an innovator in hosted Speech-To-Text technology that captures the voice of the consumer and immediately transcribes it for real-time analytics, response and integration into enterprise customer experience solutions, call center, and retail applications.

KastKing Announces Two Speed Spinning Reel for 2016

International fishing tackle corporation introduces their innovative KastKing® two speed spinning reel for the 2016 season.

Eposeidon Logo

Garden City, Long Island, NY (December 7, 2015) — Eposeidon, Inc. announced today that their KastKing® Division will retail a unique design two speed spinning reel in 2016.

Triton Dualis Two Speed

Eposeidon’s new model titled the KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed Spinning Reel is based on the same platform as the Eposeidon’s highly successful KastKing® Triton spinning reel. Dualis shares its heritage with KastKing’s first spinning reel, the Triton, but with a totally innovative two speed design. Included in the new design are the double main shaft support bearings riding on a stainless steel shaft and carbon fiber drag washers found in the original KastKing® Triton, which will remain in the product line. The Dualis name is derived from the Latin word for dual.

KastKing Two-Speed Gear Ratio

The affordable new KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed Spinning Reel model features a high and low gear ratio that can be selected at any time. Eposeidon’s KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed offers the opportunity to use the same reel with changing conditions or techniques. Its low speed gear-ratio with more torque covers bottom fishing and the use of bigger baits to bring in big fish. KastKing® Triton Dualis’ high the speed gear ratio offers a faster retrieve speed for anglers who want to crank in certain lures at high speed. It will initially be available in 4000 and 5000 class sizes.

The Triton Dualis Two Speed Spinning Reel is equipped with 10 shielded stainless steel ball bearings plus 1 instant stop anti-reverse bearing, carbon fiber drag washers, CNC machined aluminum alloy spool and handle, stainless steel main shaft, and high modulus graphite body and rotor. A Triton Dualis has 22 lbs. / 10 kg. of drag power and a 5000 generates 26.5 lbs / 12 kg. of drag.

“Demands for innovation in spinning reel design have increased,” says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “Anglers have asked us, ‘Why are there two speed conventional reels, but there isn’t a two speed spinning reel?’ Fishing tackle has been the same way for many years. People seem to put a limit on their imagination about gear. The Triton Dualis idea came from a chat with a local fisherman. I thought about it or a bit and said, ‘I believe we can make it.’ So we did. Fishermen should not be afraid to think of new ideas or just follow big name superstars. Your casual idea could turn to the next big thing.

“Our process of developing products for anglers by anglers produced the KastKing® Triton Dualis. KastKing’s® creative team got the feedback, brainstormed for a perfect solution, and is working with a world-class manufacturing facility to make it happen. KastKing® brings spinning reel evolution to another level. KastKing® is working on many additional sizes now.”

KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed Spinning Reel in the 4000 size carries a low ratio of 4.3:1 and a high ratio of 6.3:1. The Dualis 5000 has a 3.7:1 low speed and a 5.1:1 high speed gear ratio.

“Two advantages of the KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed Reels are in essence it offers anglers two reels for the price of one; and what’s more, the Dualis is priced to be affordable,” says Tom Gahan, Eposeidon’s marketing director.

MSRPs for KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed Spinning Reels are $ 93.39 USD for the Triton Dualis 4000 and $101.65 USD for the Triton Dualis 5000. KastKing® Triton Dualis Two Speed reels will sell through http://www.eposeidon.com, Amazon.com, and other exclusive online retailers at a price below $80.00 USD.

Scout Monitoring Releases Scout APM To Simplify Code Performance Troubleshooting in a New Platform-as-a-Service Market

New APM-as-a-Service Platform Designed by Developers for Developers Quickly Isolates Problem Code in Business-Critical Web Applications.

Scout Monitoring Logo

Fort Collins, CO, USA — Scout Monitoring (http://www.scoutapp.com), creators of highly reliable server and application monitoring solutions created by developers for developers, has released the first application performance monitoring (APM) service for developers deploying apps to Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions. Scout APM represents the next phase in developer migration to writing software for PaaS, allowing programmers to design and troubleshoot specialized apps faster than ever before.

“Scout gives us unprecedented performance insights into our web apps: down to the slow line-of-code, associated database calls, the developer that wrote it, and when the code was changed. Putting the pieces together without Scout would take hours – we’re able to do it in minutes with Scout,” says Aaron Scruggs, CTO of AcademicWorks, the leading provider of scholarship management solutions for universities, community colleges, and community foundations. “Now, more of our development team’s time is spent delivering great features, not tracking down performance issues.”

Before the advent of software-as-as-service, developers were responsible for the full-stack of their application, from the load balancer down to the database servers. Vendors and hosted services have offloaded many of those functions, such as Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (load balancer) and Relational Database Service (database). As a result, software engineers worry less about infrastructure plumbing and spend more time writing custom application code. Although this means more and better value-added applications, it also means new issues with increasingly complex custom code that slows performance.

Scout APM was developed as a hosted solution to instrument web app custom code versus the full stack infrastructure stack. By providing a targeted, application-specific APM solution that isolates problems in custom code, Scout APM addresses the most time-consuming developer issue – finding and fixing bottlenecks in custom code – while avoiding areas for which developers are not responsible.

“Anyone writing software to run on a hosted, platform-as-a-service like Heroku or Cloud Foundry knows that the only code they need to worry about runs on the App Server,” said Derek Haynes, CEO of Scout. “Since they aren’t responsible for uptime or services beyond the app code, we developed Scout APM as a surgical tool to fix problems in custom code.”

Where most APM tools use sampling and make it hard to pinpoint problems, Scout APM goes beyond simple code metrics assessment. Scout APM identifies five key elements behind every slow app request: who wrote it, where the line of code resides, when was it committed and deployed, which file, and what is the database analysis. Rather than spending hours to isolate a performance problem, Scout APM can isolate the problem in minutes, including the programmer best suited to address it.

Scout APM also has three key features that make it an excellent tool for app performance troubleshooting:

1. Captures every request – Where most APM solutions merely sample slow requests, Scout APM captures every request to provide better insight into app performance.
2. Integrates with Git – Works with Git open source version control to make it easy to identify who wrote the code, and when.
3. Provides context – In addition, Scout APM allows you to attach custom context to slow requests. For example: identify the email address of the user that triggered the event, the associated database shard, and the customer’s monthly spend.

Finally, Scout APM has a flexible pricing model for both apps running on PaaS services and those powered by traditional servers. Customers can choose to be billed by their request volume (starting at $20/month) or by the number of hosts their app runs on (starting at $59/host).

Scout APM is available now. For more information about Scout APM and Scout Server, visit http://www.scoutapp.com.

About Scout Monitoring
Since 2009, Scout Monitoring has been providing server and application monitoring services to developers around the world. Developed by programmers for programmers, Scout’s hosted monitoring tools are designed to provide a clean, reliable monitoring solution for servers and applications. The Scout philosophy is that monitoring doesn’t have to painful, and tens of thousands of loyal customers managing applications for some of the world’s most recognizable brands tend to agree.

Scout monitoring is based in Fort Collins, Colorado. For more information, please visit http://www.scoutapp.com.

Monofilament Leader Line DuraBlend from KastKing for 2016

KastKing creates a highly abrasion resistant monofilament leader line material for tough conditions and toothy fish.

Eposeidon Logo

Garden City, Long Island, NY (December 6, 2015) — Today in Garden City, Long Island NY, KastKing a division of Eposeidon, Inc., unveiled KastKing DuraBlend Monofilament Leader Line, an exceptional product based on a specific fishing need for their 2016 model lineup.

KastKing DuraBlend Monofilament Leader 20 - 80 lb test

KastKing® DuraBlend Monofilament LeaderLine has more abrasion resistance than other mono leader line or monofilament fishing line without sacrificing suppleness or clarity. It also ensures superior knot strength and knot tying ability.

“We were approached by quite a few charter captains who had been using our KastKing® fishing line products and were pleased with KastKing®’s performance at a much lower price point than other brands. Many of them run charters for wreck fishing or bottom fishing around rough structure. They asked if we could produce a monofilament leader in heavier gauges. We realized that breakoffs get expensive after a while for captains and guides, adding to their operating costs. In addition to supplying them with leader line material in pound tests they requested, we worked on abrasion resistance developed through new technology…an important factor for fishing around structure. We also addressed the issue of knot-ability, which is essential for tying rigs and snelling hooks. And, like everything else at KastKing®, we kept the price per yard down.”

KastKing Monofilament Leader Line

KastKing® DuraBlend Monofilament Leader line comes in 120 yard/ 110 meter spools in: 20 lb./ 9 kg., 25 lb./ 11.3 kg., 30 lb. / 13.6 kg. , 40 lb. / 18.1 kg., 50 lb. / 22.6 kg., 60 lb. / 27.2 kg./, and 80 lb. / 36.2 kg. test. MSRP20 lb. – 40 lb. $9.98 USD, 50 lb. – 80 lb. $10.98 USD.

KastKing Monofilament Leader Line from Eposeidon

“In the everyday fishing world, discussions about mono line often involve little enthusiasm. Rightfully, so. There have been very few new concepts for monofilament fishing line products introduced over the last few decades. KastKing® DuraBlend Monofilament Leader line has changed that. At KastKing® we produce fishing tackle products with input from the fishing community. DuraBlend is a material that the fishing community is getting excited about. Anglers are sitting up and taking notice!” says Tae Cui, CEO at Eposeidon, Inc.

KastKing® DuraBlend Monofilament Leader line will be discounted and priced in the eight to nine dollar range through http://www.eposeidon.com, Amazon.com, and other exclusive online retailers. KastKing® is an ICAST 2015 Best of Show award winning brand.
