  1. I have the ODM DNA 8' and I have had reels of the 5K Stradic weight class on it-perfect match. The rod is great and a nice light set-up, but have easily landed keeper striper near the jetty in current. If you want a one piece get the ODM Back Bay 7'6" Everyone has different needs based on fish target/lures, plugs fished etc. I like a moderate rod, for me the St. Croix Avid mentioned is not to my liking, I have also owned a Legend, and sold it. Just my 2 cents, good luck!
  2. Forgot, reel is spooled with XL Smooth Casting 20lb and ready to go! Pat
  3. Have a Shimano Thunnus 12000F, many love this model for throwing chunks etc. Works as it should I just did the following: The felt drag washers were upgraded to "Smooth Drag" washers when I got it. Refreshed with Cal's grease Disassembled the line roller assembly to clean and lube-roller spins freely Greased clicker and under spool, and lubed shaft Used Shimano grease/oil as pictured Added power knob ***The spool lip is good $175.00 shipped USPS Priority Mail Thanks for looking!

  4. Since you have been in most of these reels, which MQ has the best sand/water intrusion sealing. I know you were not totally happy with the BG MQ especially the handle entry, and top of the shaft. Does the Saltist MQ have a mag seal bearing in these locations to make up for that weakness. Thanks!
  5. I am interested in the 4000, vs a 5K/6K Gosa due to the weight. I have the 6K Gosa wonder how this will compare?

  7. I have had to call the manufacturer a couple times to get that info. And then get a reel on there that balances well.

  9. Saw the Lamiglas 2020 catalog and it now has the Skinner rod listed as a 2 piece option. Have not seen a pic, wonder how it would fish compared to the original. One of my vehicles is small so may be helpful.
