I am loving my recently acquired Poff strap so much that I would like to be able to move it between my Beard and my Reed. Does anyone know if the Webb quick release or the Planet Waves quick release buckles will mate up with the Poff strap quick release? Not a great fan of the looks of the Planet Wave but if it works it works.
Not sure if they'll match up,but I think I bought extra head stock straps from Bobby. Hope this helps.
Thanks, I will reach out to him.
Yes - Bobby can supply you with extra headstock loops. Good luck with getting a hold of him.
I tried to call him a few weeks ago, his voicemail box was full - as it was earlier this year when I tried.
His daughter might be the ticket via Facebook. On a road trip right now, can't look her up but I believe her name is Marta or perhaps Martha Maulik, also In Wyoming.
I emailed him and will have another headstock loop on the way shortly. Very surprised to be so quick on a Sunday.
Excellent! Next time I need to get a hold of Mr. Poff I will go the email route.
My wife and I love heading south and traveling through the Redwoods of Northern California. She spent quite a few years in Mendocino, Ft Bragg and the bay area in general before I got her to move to Whidbey Island.
Talk about great service. Chatted over a couple of emails to get the particulars out of the way, paid the invoice and it is on the way.
During my order process and while chatting with David Maulik I received this response about letting the community know about what is going on with Poff straps. I asked if it was okay to post his response to the forum so here it is straight from the horses mouth. Bobby Poff is stepping back from strap making and his daughter and son-in-law will be taking over that effort.
This was his reply:
That would great. We are in the process of helping Bobby get caught up on orders. Some of them are from before the first of the year. Accordingly, we are not taking any custom orders at the moment. Most of these individuals have been extremely patient and we want them to know that they are at the front of the line. That is the main reason we aren't really "advertising" at the moment.
We are hoping in the next few weeks we will have some of our standard length straps in stock and we will launch our website, bluegrassgear.com , but at the current rate the new webstore may not be online until sometime in October.

Yep- I was contacted by Bobby's daughter and son in law too. I had an email out to Bobby from several months ago and just ordered two more headstock loops. I know there were a lot of people waiting for contact from them as well. This is good news
