  1. How long have you had it ? How many bass caught on it - last question- any bass over 20 lb ? Just making sure has a good strong shaft. Thanks. Marty D
  2. You fish a penn reel. Lol - Florida surf fishing doesn’t count!!
  3. I saw that reel and said. Got to show you. My old reel wasn’t as nice
  4. Anyone has a bail 150 VS. The line seems to get caught on the drag nut. Anyone has this problem?? Forget about answering- SOL is sucks. I try to understand this place but to many *** *****. Most are the mods.
  5. Saw this on the beach today.
  6. They are like ninja this fall. Nuts.
  7. Waiting to hold one. I’m in.
  8. Boot foot ? G3 ?
  9. OMG. I forgot to lock this. It was sold. Sorry
  10. Seem like all wadders. The guy may be right. All wadders were made for fresh water river fishing.
  11. When I was buying VS reels in 1999 they were $400. The owner of the store said it was costing him just under $200. Yes, that was 20 years ago. Just figure $800 now -$400 cost ?
  12. If I was to get a boat again- it would be that boat 18 ft parker. Trailer it- no marina slip cost. Most marina measure boats. I had a 23 ft parker but was paying for 30 ft. 18 ft CC is a great boat.
  13. Did you hear about the 2021 ? OMG. Has a 4x4 system that’s crazy. I would hold off.
  14. I had the airwaves elite and it was a great rod for the price. At the time I had a thing about two piece rods and sold it. I just got back from fishing and meet a guy who was using the salt x 6000. He loves the reel. This company is doing the right stuff with rods & reels at a normal prices. I was told from someone who’s in the business that these VS & ZB reels that the mark up is over 100 percent. It’s about time we as fisherman stop getting hit with high prices. $1000 for reels $450 for rods then add a fisherman’s name on the rod and hit us for $200 more making the rod $600. Again we as fisherman need to stop paying this high prices. Why do we do it? I’m to blame also.
  15. So true. That word cheap doesn’t belong with the word boat. In 15 years of boating. Slip - gas - repairs- insurance and the cost of boat. I’m in it at $460,000
