  1. The importer says they knew about the straps being short, said nothing to their retailers, shipped the bags to them anyway, states they have a year’s worth of bad inventory, but, will continue to sell it until it’s gone and refuses to do anything about the irregular bags? That is just wrong. They should take responsibility, announce a “recall”, send replacement bags with the proper length strap to its retailers who would then give them as exchanges to customers that brought the irregular bag back to them. The importer should get their money back from the factory that manufactured the short strap product.
  2. Go support your local bait & tackle shop. They'll spool it on your reel and give you some good advice if you tell them what you are fishing for. You won't get that at Wal-Mart.
  3. The GSB1081L is a terrific rod. For years I paired it with a Penn 710Z. I finally bit the bullet and paired it with a VS150. Great combo. The sweet spot on the rod seems to me to be 1.5 oz. I like swimming 1.5 oz. Superstrike Little Neck Poppers with it. It is a fun rod to use. If you hook into anything seriously large - you are going to have a battle on your hands that you may or may not win. I use it mainly for fishing inlets. I think it pairs perfectly with a VS150. Would it work with a VS100? Probably, but, you might find yourself wishing you had a bigger winch if you are lucky enough to hook into anything of size.

  6. I understand how you feel. I have purchased brand new VS250, VS200 and VS150 from this site previously at the $515. cost. I’ll leave my offer live if you change your mind.
  7. I would take it for $515.00 Shipped, payment by USPS Money Order.
  8. I use a Trilene Knot to connect a mono leader to a TA Clip or a swivel. I use a Palomar Knot to tie braid to a swivel or other terminal tackle.
  9. Donart was one of the best rod building shops. You could get a beautiful custom rod built or get any component you needed to build your own- even the hardest to find guides. Great rod building advice from Donna at any time. Very sorry to see the shop close. I wish Donna much success as she moves things to an on-line only format. Always good people there.

  15. They are getting harder to find. I was looking for a pair in the $200 area. LL Bean’s were just too big in my boot size. I picked up a pair of Caddis Deluxe Breathable Bootfoot waders. They seem fine. I also noticed breathable bootfoots available from Frog Toggs and a Proline ”Stonee Brook” wader.
