  1. LMAO!
  2. The execs at Shimano KNOW exactly what is coming down the pike and are in CYA mode, as are most big corps. You should be also.
  3. Daiwa used to have folding stripper guides on the regal strike series.....mid eighties. I have never had a problem with mine.
  4. Seems to be the way of the world now........You caught us trying to cheat you....now jump through hoops to get your money back......I said JUMP peasant!
  5. Fresh caught smaller blues are pretty good, especially blackened for taco's (i.e. bruise taco's). I've never bothered with a milk bath,.....but probably would help a 5 pounder. I may have been up there in '94....can't recall exactly
  6. Sounds good to me. maybe....
  7. Mmmmmmmmm...........grilled baby wheel
  8. Mmmmmmmm.......bruise taco's I witnessed a guy catch an 8# blue on an AM party boat trip, (LBI....Barnegat) back in the mid nineties.............eventually iced....eventually gutted and put on a grill, whole......'bout 8:30 pm. I did not partake. LOL
  9. I'll take it!
  10. Pick up a $40 BPS Graphite Series 7'6" telescopic heavy action, aka "flipping stick". 12-30# line and 3/8-2oz. I lengthen the butt and balance.....YMMV
  11. I'd try a clambrella rig......
  12. ....and BTW, ...what happened to the stickies at the top? And, does anyone know what year SpiderWire stealth transitioned from teflon impregnated to flouro coated?
  13. Update to this........ Took the time to test some 20# stealth braid that measures .0115" for knotted break. Broke at 29 something and 30 something through an FG to 40# BG,.....when I managed a good knot. Received some 30# stealth braid,.....package states .012 avg.......miced at .012. Also got some 15# spiderwire EZ braid. Package states .008.....measured .0078 and breaks at 21# avg. through an FG when you get lucky and tie a good one,.......best broke at 23 something. Not the greatest in durability....but for the price I paid,....usable. These measurements are from the lots I received.........YMMV
  14. ? It is a 14 00...........a 5600ws.
  15. It's a 5600ws.....again.
