  1. That is one of them. I wrote 1-4 oz by mistake. Can you please tell me what the max weight that you feel comfortable throwing on the 10’6” rod you have?
  2. Sorry for jumping on a post that’s almost a year old, but I’m interested in getting one of these rods for surf plugging. I’m trying to decide between the VS1020S106 (1-4 oz medium) and the VS1225S106 (2-6 oz mh). Both are 10’6”. curious which rod you have and also if you’re opinion of it is still the same. Thanks, Bob
  3. I've used that tie-able Tyger leader. It works pretty well. Terminator used to make Titanium leaders which were supposedly very flexible like their spinnerbaits. I never tried them though. They were very expensive.
  4. They're in your profile picture. FinS or BKD lures on a jig.
  5. Any knot will work. If you happen to hook into a fish that takes you all the way down to a bare spool, chances are you're not going to land that fish anyway.
  6. Won't be cheap unless you can find used parts somewhere. But I'm pretty sure this will work for you if you want to spend the money. Stella 5000FA knob (part #RD 8188) which is about $65. You will also need two ball bearings (part #7786 & 7915) for about $20. You may also need 2 washers(part #8169) and 1 washer (part #8171). You will probably have to buy from a reel parts place like Mike's or E-Replacement Parts, because Shimano no longer stocks them.
  7. I will give! Congratulations!
  8. I like this rig. Advantages? 1. Single hook reduces harm done by trebles to fish intended to be released. (You can use a circle also) 2. Bunker stays on the clip much better than using just a hook. 3. Hook point stays exposed. Almost impossible for the hook point to bury itself back into the bunker
