  1. i gotta disagree with you Ged,...40 in., is not plenty of retrieve,.for jigging, 40 is probby, the lowest number, for jigging, once again ,, smarter not harder....Gary i will be there this week coming, lets hook up, i call ya....
  2. old saying..... " fish smarter, not harder".......even away from crowds....
  3. the 8 and 10, are the same size... 24 oz,,,.true the 8 is a little faster, (42, 40 for the 10), but the 10 has better drag, 33lb....8 has 27lb.,,
  4. for plugging the Canal, either or is just fine, i use the 10 ft. 2-8oz., for plugging the CCC, personally, reason being, if i want, i can also jig, 5,6 plus oz., jigs NP, with this rod....
  5. i field tested the 1-6 oz. rod all last fall, the rods first rating was 2-6, but after continue use of 1 oz. lures, 1 oz. Ava's, 1 oz. Bucktails, 1 oz. SP Minnows, with much success, we decided to change rating to 1-6 oz. .....i also used lures up to 5.5 oz., and rod casted great, NP.....I am sure, rod can and will handle 6oz. ...ideal i say , the rod handles all.....
  6. can you do $27, thats all i got please.....
  7. to be honest with you, the Gosa, will be your only reel to use at the CCC, and that reel, has border line retrieve , for jigging, when jigging please don't try to use 3 oz. JH's, and think that they are getting to the bottom, the shi$ shows at the canal, recently, were caused by guys not having the right gear to jig with, top water, and plugging (MS'ers, SS's), are diferent type of fishing, when you are in a jig line-up, please have the somewhat right gear....fast rod, heavy jigs, and fast retrieve reels..... i am just giving you the Gospel truth, not trying to be a A-hole... engoy your stay......
  8. i truly miss John, gone to soon, a true gentleman, RIP....
  9. in Kil Song defense, Tuesdays BIG BITE, on squid, was announced, one hour, less than that, bye people on FB, and another popular fishing site, i get it Kil, should not report a bite, ,,,, but these others, less than 1 hour, after its happens,??...
  10. Try, MGC Tackle in Hanover, or Tomo tackle in Salem, to name a few places, in Mass.
  11. HI BRIAN, yes and no, for the most part, its the rods ability, if it can handle the low end , without modifying your cast, yes i guess all have sweet spots, but i am a firm believer that a rod should handle its lure rating, without the caster, having to change his style of casting....i am sure that the TFO can handle it, yes at one time i did own the 10'6" model.... ,
  12. hi buddy, if this for sale, i can offer $160, please, , thanks for considering...
  13. oh well, i will take the reel, for your asking price $175,,, Thanks..
  14. Yes US Composites, in CA., very good friend of mine, owner Randy Penny, we both go back to the old days together, at Seeker Rods, Randy is a much dedicated, and talented blank designer, for years,, US,Blanks, are sold and built in the Mass. area by Chris Aubut, i have used their rods, all good, strong, sensitive, much backbone...
  15. don't fall into that trap, all rod companies, offer great products,but all rods do break,if a rod is that indestructible, then,. it should more than a one year warranty.....
