  1. I have both and like the moderate rod for poppers and spooks and the mod-fast for bucktails and tin to 2.5 oz.
  2. This was a birthday present over 70 years ago. I also have a Manley.
  3. I have stopped carrying plugs except surface and a darter if I think conditions will be right. Mostly now rely on Bucktails, rubber and a few tins. I don’t do much night fishing any more because of age and medical problems.
  4. Gil since the web wasn’t working I called up and ordered spare tips for two of my travel Tidemasters. All they asked is the model number not the serial number. Call and give the conventional model number. Got them in 3 days
  5. You can get the tip from StCroix for $35 shipped, shipping for me would not be practical at that price.
  6. I haven’t accepted any offer yet
  7. Sorry should have said guide was replaced, here's a pic as you can see there's a underwrap.
  8. Any offer will be considered must clean house much to much stuff.
  9. This rod comes with 2 tips, one spinning and one conventional. Spinner little used, conventional never used. The ring on the spinner popped out and was replaced by Fisherman's World in Norwalk, CT. Asking $ 125, pickup southern Westchester County, Mamaroneck or New Rochelle. Cash or PayPal.
  10. I have a 5000 fj on a mh 7.5ft Tidemaster in Jan feb and early mar it’s mostly large jacks. I think and now in the fk they seem to classify it as a freshwater model. In order to survive saltwater bruisers too many upgrades, start with the drag, are necessary. Obviously the fj and the fk are over engineered are smooth and reliable but for salt water I think I like the user friendly Penns.
  11. I have one in excellent condition I would match the previous and throw in a brand new spare spool Paypal shipped 48 states.
  12. if you're interested in a five piece 9ft with a .5 to 2oz lure range.
  13. For all the carping re Lamiglas I’d bet the ranch that if you questioned surfcasters that if they were limited to only rod it would be a GSB
  14. sold pending payment pm to follow
