Rescue Rung Update

Saw on another thread that there was a redesign of the Rescue Rung in process and would maybe make it's debut the summer of 2018. Anyone have any update on that?

Just got off the phone with Dave, the guy who made the Rescue Rung, and he says that there are no immediate plans to reissue it. Too bad because it is a great product. He is going to keep me in the loop if he decides to make and sell them again.

I do hope Dr Y does indeed start manufacturing them again. I had occasion to speak with him in his new home state in Feb of this year, but I forgot to ask him about the Rung.



Mine are what, over 10 if not 15 years old, the stickers are all bleached out and the perlon is getting stiff. Would buy a couple more without a minute's hesitation!!!!!

ITS COMING BACK!!! The new design, which functions exactly the same if not a bit smoother will be renamed the Rapid Rung. Two rung and three rung Models will be available.

The redesign is complete and I'm finishing up the acquisition from Dr. Y. early next month. I should be able to start shipping Rapid Rungs end of November. I'll put up a post soon about the pre order. Concept is, pre orders can pick their colors from white, orange,green and blue or a mix there of. Stay tuned.

This rescue rung is a good product to also market towards the motor boating community. Great way to climb back aboard after water skiing or tubing
