  1. That's exactly what I'm doing. I built 3 rods last year and they all rusted up within weeks. Never again.
  2. If I remember correctly, it was made more as a joke than anything else. It had to be shot out of smoothbore guns because any twist in the barrel would make the bullets spin themselves to pieces.
  3. Here's a 140 gr 280 Rem Federal Trophy Copper pulled out of a doe. Copper bullets definitely work on deer.
  4. Thanks but as of right now I'm really just looking for a blank. My dad wants me to build him a new fluke rod for his birthday and I figured this would be a good choice.
  5. Cod is blander by a mile.
  6. Anybody got a spare laying around? I live in CT but spend time on the RI shore.
  7. Sea bass, no question.
  8. I'm a big fan of Federal's Trophy Copper line (as I've said here before). I use it in 20ga and both me and my dad use it in .280 Rem. Very accurate and every deer we hit with them dropped in their tracks.
  9. No, having a knot slam through the guides while casting will not increase its durability. Try a knot that's easier to tie like the uni and see if you still have problems.
  10. Penn Pro Guide Surf 7'6". Sure wish I could find a couple more of them as backup...
  11. I'm sure we went through this last time, but any chance you were going to the CT or RI areas any time soon?
  12. What Fishjerk said. Glue, glue, and a little bit more glue.
  13. I've never broken a swivel or had one of my 6XH splits open, but I've sure opened a few 4x trebles.
