  1. I'm sorry I missed this. I was out of state hunting. I can get better pics. It is approx. 3 years old. I traded a 6500 for it. It was like new when I got it. I used it maybe a dozen times, either at the local dock or on the north shore.
  2. This....especially the second person. The "feeder" is just as important as the "puller"....maybe even more. And the key is communication. Only pull when and how much the feeder is feeding.
  3. Payment received. It will go out Monday. Battle sold.
  4. Yes. I will pm you payment info latter this evening. Thanks, Tom
  5. I'd go $45 as long as you're here on the east coast.
  6. SSV 4500 and Battle 5000 for sale. Both are spooled with 20# Fireline. They are in great shape, no dings or major scratches. Never dunked. Rinsed after every use, which wasn't much. $80 for the SSV $50 for the Battle
  7. I'll take the bottles.
  8. Payment sent, thanks.
  9. Great thanks. I'm on the road right now. I will get back to you when I get home, in a couple of hours.
  10. Would you take $ 135?
  11. Yea, I had a 200 on a Mojo 9'er. It didn't make a mess but if I really laid into it, I thought I heard/felt line slap.
  12. A VR200 has a spool diameter closer to a VS250. Don't you think it should be on at least a 10" rod?
  13. Vortex makes some good glass for not too much money. A 7x, 8x or 10x should be fine. I wouldn't go higher than that, harder to keep steady. If he's going to be glassing from a boat I wouldn't go more than 8x. 42mm should be fine too. The higher the mm's the better the light transmission but also more weight.
  14. He said they designed them a little thicker to allow for wear but made them a little too thick.
  15. Wouldn't thinner washers let the spool sit further back on the shaft? That was what Craig made it seem like to me.
