  1. X3 on the Frogg Tog Hellbender waders. I bought a pair last Spring for L.I. South Shore sand beach work. I have been quite happy with them- breathable, bootfoot with lug soles and not crazy money to own a set. I think you would be happy with them.
  2. It’s getting very hard to find bootfoot cleated sole waders. Do an online search and you’ll see what I mean.
  3. I’ In. Thanks
  4. I did get the first of the new 2 shot shingles vaccination about a month ago. My arm was sore for a couple of days afterwards. It was to be expected from the shot. It is a normal reaction to the shot.
  5. Google: I use Aquapac waterproof cell phone bag. for my phone & car keys. It sounds similar to the Loksak mentioned above. I think there are several brands of this type of product on the market today. Google ”Aquapac” you’ll see it comes in lots of different sizes. I keep mine in the pocket inside my waders or in a shirt pocket. It will keep your wallet & small electronics dry if you take a tumble.
  6. The importer says they knew about the straps being short, said nothing to their retailers, shipped the bags to them anyway, states they have a year’s worth of bad inventory, but, will continue to sell it until it’s gone and refuses to do anything about the irregular bags? That is just wrong. They should take responsibility, announce a “recall”, send replacement bags with the proper length strap to its retailers who would then give them as exchanges to customers that brought the irregular bag back to them. The importer should get their money back from the factory that manufactured the short strap product.
  7. Go support your local bait & tackle shop. They'll spool it on your reel and give you some good advice if you tell them what you are fishing for. You won't get that at Wal-Mart.
  8. The GSB1081L is a terrific rod. For years I paired it with a Penn 710Z. I finally bit the bullet and paired it with a VS150. Great combo. The sweet spot on the rod seems to me to be 1.5 oz. I like swimming 1.5 oz. Superstrike Little Neck Poppers with it. It is a fun rod to use. If you hook into anything seriously large - you are going to have a battle on your hands that you may or may not win. I use it mainly for fishing inlets. I think it pairs perfectly with a VS150. Would it work with a VS100? Probably, but, you might find yourself wishing you had a bigger winch if you are lucky enough to hook into anything of size.
  9. PM Received. Payment will be sent in the morning 7/24 Thanks, Surfcaster1
  10. I will take it for $540.00 Shipped. Payment by USPS Money Order.
  11. I understand how you feel. I have purchased brand new VS250, VS200 and VS150 from this site previously at the $515. cost. I’ll leave my offer live if you change your mind.
  12. I would take it for $515.00 Shipped, payment by USPS Money Order.
  13. I use a Trilene Knot to connect a mono leader to a TA Clip or a swivel. I use a Palomar Knot to tie braid to a swivel or other terminal tackle.
  14. Donart was one of the best rod building shops. You could get a beautiful custom rod built or get any component you needed to build your own- even the hardest to find guides. Great rod building advice from Donna at any time. Very sorry to see the shop close. I wish Donna much success as she moves things to an on-line only format. Always good people there.
  15. Closing this offer down - Does not seem to be any interest.
