Black Fly

Post by Jay Fred » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:13 pm

I am interested in buying a black fly octane 85. I emailed them and one no got back to me. Does anyone know how to get a hold of them. I'm a little frustrated. I know that the owner is a pro boater and is probably busy with that. However, that is really poor customer service.

Jeremy is pretty much a one man show dude, but his boats are well worth any wait you might have to endure.-M-

He's a one-man operation and he makes a good product. You might have to wait. It's not poor customer service, it's reality.

He is returning after the World Competition to NH and posted on FB he had auto trouble. Wait a couple of days to email, or call him.

Where are you located. If you'd like to demo an Octane 85 or any other Blackfly model, I can help. I'm located in Chattanooga TN.

And Wendy is correct. Jeremy has been on the road for the last two weeks competing and watching his boats in action.

The octane 85 is worth the wait!!!!!
I sat in the 85 prototype for the first time in TN March 10, emailed jeremy March 17 to tell him I was his first customer for it. I got mine middle august. Worth every single day I waited for it.
