About to Release

I've been working on products for a startup company called 12WT. This brand is focused on apparel and accessories primarily for the flats but not limited to them. One of the categories that is close to production is gloves. These gloves have some very unique features and should be for sale on the web soon. For now, let me share two shots of some prototype gloves being tested in 2011. Stay tuned for more about 12WT. in the coming months of 2012WT.

Hey that's a GREAT idea!

After landing a decent numbers of striped bass this fall including a real big ones I noticed that my hands were cut everywhere... especially in the lower part of the thumb.

I still can see these marks... I am not really complaining about them but my better half is :)

I took the plunge last year with an idea for modular gear. It's been cool so far, and the momentum is really building. Looking forward to meeting up and seeing more of your stuff at a show or two, or on the water.

these particular gloves were designed primarily for sun protection rob, but with no loss of dexterity or grip. they do seem fine as far as fish handling goes.

Sounds like a very good business plan! I hope you get that registered for a delaware corporation or llc of sort. That sure can be very profitable on a global scale.
