  1. Definitely check the brass swivel- they fail.
  2. Clean it up, relube, add a manual bail kit and either a 704 or 704z spool. The 704 spools have a better drag washer set-up, the 700 only has one fiber washer. Have fun with it!
  3. Yes, Check the St Croix website for deals on the avids
  4. I’ve been using a three tube gear-up bag for a few years. It’s a very Nice bag and would work well for your needs.
  5. I remember seeing those type plugs. They were a cheap. Chinese knock-off wood plug with screw eyes. You would be better off with a Gibbs Polaris (wood) or Super Strike little neck popper. I also would move away from those old brass snail swivels and use a duo-lock, coast-lock or one of the paper clip type snaps.
  6. That’s some good news.
  7. Very nice find, especially the hellcats and the Mac windcheater!
  8. Cool, I believe that the made a spook type version too.
  9. He was an interesting guy, he took a few photos of me including one of my 46 in front of Paulies.
  10. Blue marine grease.
  11. Always direct.
  12. I was fortunate to pick up another Beretta Silver Mallard AL390. It looks perfect and came with a bunch of chokes and a users manual. It’s below my old one.
  13. Mono 15#-20 big game by Berkeley would be good. A 710 might be better on a 8 foot rod.
  14. I generally use a 1321m with the VS250.
  15. Great rifle I have my Dad’s 1957 35 that put a lot of meat on the table.
