Holiday News

Wow, the holidays are upon us and it seems to have thrown everything into fast forward around here.     There has been a lot going on at Diablo HQ over the last couple of months concerning new products, accessories,  and pricing.  We are making great headway on some aspects and others are still taking their time (which reminds me, I gotta call that guy about that thing).   So with that said, let me catch you up on what you can expect over the next couple of weeks here at Diablo. 
We just had the first run of Chupacabras come off the truck and we'll start assembly tomorrow!  WOOOHOOO!  This has been in the works for some time now and we thank you for waiting patiently, but we are now taking orders for Chupacabras and if you hurry we can get it them out of here and under your tree just in time for Christmas.  The price will be $1249 retail, yes that’s $101 less than we originally quoted, but we’ll explain if you keep reading.   The Chupacabra is the smaller counterpart to our Adios.  It comes in at 10.5’ long and just over 36” wide, still providing you the platform to sit, stand, paddle or pole for all your fishing styles. 
We are still working on our skegs  and anticipate being able to have a run ready for purchase at the beginning of the year.  They will fit into existing handle holes on the rear of your Adios or Chupacabra, so they can be added in minutes, with a screwdriver.  We have also become big fans of the Larry chair ,  , which fits perfectly into our cockpit with a normal kayak seat already affixed.   Paddling is easy from this position and it makes going from the seated to standing position much easier. 
In addition to all this we need to thank some of our friends and supporters that put us up on their Christmas list.  Thank you to Cameron over at the for adding us to his wish list, as well as Isaac Miller for his mention that you can check out at .  Thanks guys and we’ll talk with Santa for the Spring…
One last thing that we find very exciting and we think you will to,  PRICE DROPS ON BOTH MODELS!!!  That’s right, we told you that as soon as we were up and running a little smoother, we would re-evaluate and see what savings we could pass on to our customers and dealers. We have done it.  Just in time for Christmas and 2011 Kayak fishing season, we are able to drop our prices to $1499 and $1249 respectively on the Adios and Chupacabra.  That is over $100 on each model and we are very happy to announce this as a benefit to both our dealers and customers.
Did we mention we have Swag available.  Trucker caps in Khaki and in Chupacabra Green!  T-shirts with our  jolly Diablo logo, what could be better for a stocking stuffer.  Holiday special , $15 per item, and we’ll pay the shipping. 
I hope you are all having a great holiday season!
Cheers, tf
