  1. G Loomis has a couple one piece surf rods that are 8' 10". Think they do this to keep shipping costs down which takes a big jump at 9'.
  2. Have a 1084 1 piece I would sell.
  3. Fished 3-7 this AM with a G Loomis 1064s 8'10" moderate action with a Stradic 5000fj.Rod(24oz total?) seemed a little wimpy at first but didn't run for the pain pills when I got home.Will use this for the rest of the season(6-7 weeks for me)and get a new rod over the winter.Appreciate almost all the posts and feel like you have headed me in the right direction.
  4. What length is the Century Stealth you used?
  5. Getting a lot of good info. Thanks
  6. Thank you Will look into ODM
  7. Had a good early AM(5 fish but nothing large) but my shoulder is starting to hurt more as the season rolls along.Used a 10'6" instead of the usual 9' and some 2oz lures instead of the 1 to 1.5oz.. What 9' to 10' spinning rod do you guys with shoulder problems like(have had my rotator cup repaired)? Lure weight? Something as fun as landing fish can't be the problem,in fact gives you a little break from casting ?
  8. Two different Tiralejo rods.New one came out 2-3 years ago.They are all 2 piece and fixed reel seat.Older style were 1 and 2 piece with adjustable reel seat.
  9. dcast Would you name the 3 reels. Thank you
  10. I like the 5/0 vmc inline (ILS) but the Gamakatsu single hook 510 has an open eye.Handy for tail hook.There 4/0 is the same size as vmc 5/0.
  11. RIsurffishing-thanks for the kind offer but googled the Akios scora 80 and knew what the other two look like.Would love to hear the results after your testing is done.
  12. Two good reel ideas.Like the looks of the Surf Basia. Like the Tiralejo.Weighs about 10.5 oz.Makes you wonder how light they can make them.Haven't caught any large fish on it yet.Haven't used pencils with it but weight ratings seem about right(unlike G.Loomis owned by Shimano).
  13. Have a new model 10'6" Tiralejo.Put a stradic 5000fj on it.Very light combo but not getting the distance that I got at a Shimano casting demo. They had Ultegra reels.Thought they were bulky.Is there other long cast reels I should consider or just get an Ultegra?Thank you
  14. KTP has them on sale.Some people like the egg shaped handle on the 5000.Same size reel.Spool is larger on the 5000.
  15. Thank you."The Autobiography of Eddie Rickenbacker" is a good read.
