  1. I’ll take it
  2. Not sure about that Stradic, but the gold FH models went from 4000 to 5000 simply by using a 5000 spool
  3. The newer ones had a rotary fed mag.
  4. Post the first 4 or 5 or the serial numbers..... and some pics of the gun
  5. Reel casts too good to fool with after market crap. It’s managed, as mentioned, by centrifugal brakes.
  6. I’ve cast them all and own two CTS 1305’s and a 1306. Surf Machines were a little slow in action imo. Little effort to load but the timing kept throwing me off. Ballistics were the same IMO. I didn’t dislike any of them. 1305s are more forgiving on the beach with less than ideal footing and fight fish wonderfully. When I have proper footing (hard ground or planks) and absolutely nail it, the 1306 gets a slight edge on distance, but there’s a reason I have 1305s.
  7. Got three 12s on the roof riding CTS 1305s and a 1306. One still needs a bend put in it to break it in. Hope to get that detail worked out in about an hour and a half.
  8. Looking for a live bait king fishing rod. I’m a complete newb to it and just know I’m looking for a soft top. Thanks.
  9. Thank you for the reply. Just looking for FHs to go with the couple I already have. I appreciate the offer.
  10. Looking for a Stradic FH 4000/5000. There are several scattered across bidding sites, but figured I’d give you SOLers a shot to see what you may first. Looking for one in pretty good shape preferably.
  11. What tires did you use?
  12. I’ve got a 2012 with a couple hundred sand miles on it. No issues. Clearance isn’t great. Next tire change I’m going to put a 2.5” lift and larger tires to help accommodate, but I don’t need much. Hatteras sand gets deep and soft in some places. Other than that, I have no complaints for a beach vehicle.
  13. Sounds like a solid technique. We don’t get stripers down this way but I’m sure the flounder, puppy drum and variety of other fish will love them.
