Thank you Fish Slayers for watching this vid on the speculation that the Googan Squad is leaving or no longer with Favorite Rods. You’re seeing LunkersTV, LFG Lake Fork Guy, JonB, APBassin, Fishing With Flair, not using Favorite Rods in their latest videos and posts. Guys are questioning now that there is something going on between the two and maybe they’re no longer working together. Be sure to comment what you think is going on and of course please make sure you’re subscribed to the channel. I would love to hear your thoughts on what might be going on between these two heavy weights in the fishing industry. Will you still support Favorite Rods, Googan Squad, Googan Baits? Again let me know in the comments below! Tight Lines Fish Slayers!

  2. john helems on February 16, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    They were fine before googan they will be fine after

  3. Michael MacDonald on February 16, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    I have their favorite defender couples with a daiwa tatula cts and I absolutely love it! Idc about the politics gimme a good fishin stick!

  4. John Sullivan on February 16, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Well the rumor i had the googans guys acted like asses at ICast favorite had some words for them

  5. Xbridgeman1975x on February 16, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    They are coming out with their own line of Googan rods. Mystery solved

  6. OKIE OUTDOORS on February 16, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    What video is he at the store shopping for other rods?

  7. AndrewLetit FlowWolf on February 16, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Rob called 1Rod to come back into the fold because the boys have the Midwest and West and Texas covered, but 1Rod is east coast he lives 10 minutes from me in Maryland and he does FISH. He only Fishes, he doesn’t click bait like flair, he’s goofy and raw and fishes everyday , that’s why. For fishing content and his Million viewers and to branch out to the East coast. Plus 1Rod could’ve sued them at any minute as he was in fact the guy WHO DUBBED THEM THE GOOGAN SQUAD

  8. 5spottedbass on February 16, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    Well that was front page news

  9. Eazy Breezy on February 16, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    If Googans leave Favorite rods …. I’m cutting my Favorite rods in 8 inch pieces and stick it in my butt.

  10. Tyler Celli on February 16, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    Id be willing to bet theyre not gonna partner with anyone. Theyre going to make their own brand of rods. It seems theyre big enough to go that direction. I bet the research and testing purposes rob was doing was to see what components they liked and to possibly rip off other companies like they did to 6th sense with their hard baits.

  11. KlockWork BassFishing on February 16, 2020 at 11:16 pm

    It’s crazy to see the youtube fishing scene change so much fuxk the money. Y’all come follow me for that raw fishing videos

  12. Lamar Cantrell on February 16, 2020 at 11:16 pm

    I was in the Tackle industry for 35 years and this was going on when I started and when I quit.

  13. raymond hill on February 16, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    I think they are a bunch of whiney girl’s. Just got through watching Weston’s video about no longer using favorite Rod’s.

  14. DYTangler on February 16, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    I will always keep my rigged phantom. But I use KastKing gear and last year I switched my rods to them also. Favorite makes great rods. KastKing was just a personal choice for me.

  15. Logan Barnes on February 16, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    You said you dont care but took 15 minutes of our time to tell us what you think happened. Seems like you’re just name dropping Googan in a title for views honestly.

  16. Bravesfn 82 on February 16, 2020 at 11:23 pm

    I love all these liitle youtube “ fishermen “ sucking up to the googans wanting in with them and trashing on favorite hard the last month on here. Its just sad. I’ve never own anything favorite, but seeing how these idiots turn on each other because they think they are big enough to stand alone and say fuck you almost.

  17. dustin stoks on February 16, 2020 at 11:23 pm

    I could care less about what the Googans or any you tubers use, I’ll still use favorite rods.

  18. DrZoo on February 16, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    St. Croix and Dobyns Rods are my goto. For reels, it’s all about Daiwa Tatula. The 100 series from 2015 is the best. I don’t have any of the newer versions from 2016-2019.

  19. Kain Outdoors on February 16, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    There are few people in different industries I listen to for product advice. Almost none of them are partnered or sponsored by the products they recommend. Celebrity endorsements are almost always about the kick back and not the product.

  20. chad f on February 16, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    Theres way better rods out there then that made in china crap from favorite. Gloomis, St croix, shimano, doybns and plenty more are way better. What the googans do or use dont affect me at all there just chasing money.

  21. Joshua Shenk on February 16, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    Was not cool how they pushed those rods so hard. Then dumped them and didn’t say a word to they’re supporters. Kinda messed up!

  22. packinaglock on February 16, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    I only have one Favorite rod. Most of my rods are Dobyns and Lews, just like them better.

  23. Mark McKenzie on February 16, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    I’m not buying a rod because someone or a group pitch them – I want to see results, but more importantly, I’ll buy what I can afford, and which rods work best for me. Comfort, balance, weight, build quality matter. I really like Abu Garcia and Okuma rods, along with G Loomis, Lamiglas and St Croix. Each make great rods for me, each make dogs for me. The Googan rods, if they ever hit my local stores, will get the wiggle & jiggle test, but if the quality, balance, price, or actions are off, they can stay on the shelf.

  24. Thomas Horner on February 16, 2020 at 11:32 pm

    i looked at favorite rods and won’t spend that much on a youtubers rod. was able to get a couple scott martin okuma rods before he moved to favorite . but I’ve used quantum ,abu,bass pro rods butt lately I’ve been using kastking rods n reels , more affordable for me and I’ve had no issues

  25. Distance EightySix on February 16, 2020 at 11:33 pm

    The googans were actually part owners of favorite.

  26. Steve the Pirate on February 16, 2020 at 11:34 pm

    I fish with whatever I can afford. $100+ rods and reels are a little out of my budget.

  27. Eddawg 79 on February 16, 2020 at 11:35 pm

    Aren’t Googan baits under the Catch Co. brand? I know Scott Martin helped design at least 1 of the soft plastics but I didn’t think he had a major stake in Googan Baits.

  28. Jerry Ice on February 16, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    Yes sir I will Buy Favorite Rods . I buy what I like not what someone pushes because they get them free or at a low cost.

  29. Ryan Sabin on February 16, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    I’ll stay with favorite. I’ve always liked Scott Martin

  30. robert patterson on February 16, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    I am influenced by products that certain pros use but I’m not stuck on one particular brand . I like and use Dobyns, have and love a few American made all stars, st croix and am now trying out some diawas . I am stuck on Lews reels and not likely to use anything else. If I ever switch reels it will probably be diawa that would get my money .

  31. Andy Yerger on February 16, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    Never owned or considered a favorite rod. Never owned or considered a googan bait. Never cared what the googans use or what any pro uses. I work hard for my money and buy quality no reason to chase the bandwagon.

  32. Fishing with Thad on February 16, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    The Googans run 0 to 100 on everything! They are all in or all out of things.

  33. bassmania tv on February 16, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    I started using favorite bcuz of the googan squad but then I noticed how good the rods where & I will not stop using favorite rods bcuz they stopped I’m gonna keep using & buying favorite products..

  34. Evan Fagerty on February 16, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    Favorite rods feel super cheap, and so does Googan baits. Their plastics can’t last more than 1 fish

  35. Jeff Leong on February 16, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    parick is a fucking idiot … hes hard on reels…? not like hes wearing them out hes treating them like a spoiled little rich kid treats his toys…. fuck that guy

  36. Enrico Knoll on February 16, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    I have 2 Favorite rods out of 10 and I’m very happy with them. and at the end all this noise on you tube … it’s just about … money … and this is sad.

  37. Gary Lu on February 16, 2020 at 11:45 pm

    Maybe kids and new anglers will finally invest in quality rods and reels thatll last. Im brand loyal but I also go out of my way to try out rods before talking about them. Favorite was never going to last because they were created by amateur fishermen (besides LFG. very knowledgeable in fishing).

  38. Gregory j Graff jr on February 16, 2020 at 11:49 pm

    I would still buy a favorite. just cause the googans left favorite who cares i find it funny how all these other fishing youtubers swing on the googans nutt sacks now there is like 4 or 5 channels not useing favorite anymore either the googans left favorite so am i lmao then its all these other channels do is endorse the googan squad hoping the googans are gonna say hey come be a googan ain’t gonna happen boys there is only one googan sqaud they are the O.G,s of the youtube fishing game and they are killing it I’m sure it’s a business move on their part that’s my 2 cents

  39. Mike Smith on February 16, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    Another YouTuber who thinks their video actually influences anything. We watch because we enjoy, when we don’t we stop. Don’t give a damn about someones Drama. Nobody Fish for drama…

  40. AndrewLetit FlowWolf on February 16, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    They finally got together and decided to boycott the worthless company …
    Over the last couple years I purchased two Favorite rods strictly because they looked nice and were with Googan , I returned both within 24 hours. Instead I got a Shimano Expride and a Dobyns Fury, as I had got a Defender and an Emperor.
    They lacked good feeling, lacked sensitivity , everything from grass to trash to small fish at times felt like a wet sock on the end. Especially the defender, it really upset me, I had a 7’3 MH defender I think, and compared it to my 13 fishing 7’4 H , and the 13 fishing was far more sensitive and I did not buy it for sensitivity lol favorite feels cheap and I been saying this for two years.

  41. Fishhook Terry on February 16, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    Have the Googans left Favorite Rods?? Let me know your thoughts below!

  42. Stoney Lonsome on February 16, 2020 at 11:51 pm

    I will never understand why anyone cares what rod the Goober squad uses or doesn’t. Ppl tell me, "Oh, you’re just not into drama…" well actually I am but, I have to care about the characters involved or the matter at hand in some way or it’s not "drama" it’s just noise.

  43. Texas Bass Freak on February 16, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    If it’s not made by Mitchell, Lew’s, or Abu Garcia (reel wise), I won’t buy it, PERIOD!!!

  44. MrZwestman on February 16, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    Rob is a douche canoe.

  45. Electrick Flame on February 16, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    Who cares about the drama, just fish!

  46. Mudbass Fishing on February 17, 2020 at 12:00 am

    Ill keep rocking Favorite 100%. Im happy with the rods and dont have a plan to go anywhere.

  47. swissmochaj on February 17, 2020 at 12:00 am

    I thought the Googans bought into Favourite

  48. Colton Strain on February 17, 2020 at 12:01 am

    I’d definitely still use the rods. Best rods I’ve ever used. The ones that sold me to favorite was Scott Martin and Brian Latimer

  49. Brandon Johnson on February 17, 2020 at 12:02 am

    The googan rods are off the market. They’re not at my wal mart or on Amazon.

  50. James D on February 17, 2020 at 12:02 am

    Favorite is garbage. No customer service or ethics. Still waiting on my e-mail
