    Greetings. I am Patrick D. owner of goFASTandLIGHT.com. We are a family run web store in California. In operation for 13 years, We seek out small, useful items for ultralight backpackers, campers, and preppers. While many of our products are not equal to the precision crafted tools, knives, and gear that I have seen on some other Bushcrafter USA vendor sites - you might find some of our gear useful. We are not Made in USA purists - we source from USA, China, India, and even Pakistan. If it's useful - we get it.

    The company started after I suffered a compression fracture of my T9 and T10 vertebrae in a mountain bike accident. After rehab, being in my mid 40's - could not find a new job in Information Technology (too old they said). Screw 'em I'll do my own thing. Tough sledding for first 2 years, but it caught on.

    Our most popular item is the Ultralight Pen Rod Combo, followed by accessories for it. We also like to find and offer "extreme value" items like this camp chair, or this backpack, or even this ultralight minnow trap. We especially like gear that does double or triple duty - such as caps with lights, pack stool, or a camp shower that is also a hydration pack.

    We will be offering special BushcraftUSA member coupon codes and deals. But don't wait if you are interested - email or call in - during business hours - We love to talk and will make you a deal.

    I have bought several rod reel combos from your site. Two for myself and a few as gifts. The tackle selection is great too. Thanks for the great products and welcome!

    Got my pen rod order today. Got a regular and a carbon fiber. Higher quality than the price implies for sure. Looking forward to getting them on the water.

    Send us photos of your catch. Did you also see the video we posted about "how strong is the pen rod? " Don't try this at home -- -



    By the way - Bushcraft USA member who get a free goFAST account and then contact me via email (instructions in our other thread) will have their account enhanced so they will see the pen rod combo for about $3 less than shown on our site.
