  1. He is still building.
  2. If it doesn't feel right then it probably isn't. Nothing wrong with building a few for yourself but if a guy is still building and selling his own original design I think your best option is to come up with your own design that mimics what you want out of the plug.
  3. $10 a board foot is what you will typically find in NY. Was it true 2x6? Also note that lumber prices have been shooting through the roof recently.
  4. It is not durable. The UVLS is a replacement to a previous clear that was more durable but now it's a one part and doesn't hold up nearly as well. It is good for an intercoat or as a carrier for the createx candies though. You just need to top the bait of with a real clear after.
  5. I'm not saying not to wear a respirator.. I'm saying You don't need an explosion proof fan on your booth for createx. I've read the safety data sheets. The createx line of paint, clear and reducers aren't flammable.
  6. I don't think anything in the createx line requires an explosion proof fan.
  7. Krok..310lb and 500lb. Cheapest ive seen is on Amazon for around $7
  8. Iwata Eclipse covers a wide range of uses
  9. The createx autoair paints aren't solvent based they are acrylics..when you use the 4030 additive it becomes a acrylic urethane hybrid that is very durable.
  10. A few I'm working on..split personality
  11. Can I get 12 of the the 11" purple unrigged and 7 of the red 16" unrigged. Thanks
  12. Playing around with a new shape..this fish approved.
  13. Take a look at the Lami carbon surf. Very capable rod and at a very reasonable price point.
  14. The SuperSurf is a faster action blank in comparison to the GSB which is much more parabolic. For what you're planning to use it for I would prefer the SuperSurf. I prefer the SuperSurf because I like it's sensitivity and its faster action. If I was throwing eels or big metal lips or something like that I'd prefer the GSB.
  15. Get rid of the tail hook..just a flag and put on two cut 3/0 mustad 5x's
  16. Not sure if you're talking about from a boat or the surf. If you mean from the surf..The problem is permits. You need a permit and it's assigned to the vessel. I don't know how this works for catch and release but I can't imagine that if you you actually landed one from the surf that it would survive a release. Several years back someone landed a small one from the surf, he kept it and posted pictures..he was eventually busted. Disregard...I reread and see you mean from a boat.
  17. Just a heads up. The blind one is not the deep diver... although it gets down deep.
  18. I would be very skeptical of someone who bashes other companies to prop up what they think is best. They often have an ulterior motive.
  19. Times like this drive home the need to support American companies when you have the option.
  20. The 70/30 split the next best thing to a 1 piece. They fish very much like a solid one piece blank
  21. I did mine with cedar, stained the inside and outside, then lined with plastic. Three years in and it's still good.
  22. This is a very noble cause. I will add this troller to your offering. You obviously make the call on what your accepted offer is. I hope someone can come through. Thank you! CV
  23. My opinion differs from most but I like the supersurf more. With a faster a action rod you're not going to work a pencil like you traditionally's takes far less effort almost like working a spook but at faster rate. You're working the plug more with the top section of the rod then you are from the mid section on a more parabolic rod.
  24. The beach doesn't open up for driving until September. The 4x4 passes are only sold in a limited number and are sold out already. You can still access by foot though and don't need a permit to do so. You will need a permit if you decide to park in any of the designated fishermen lots...but it seems you already have access through the club. As you enter the gate to the club you may notice a small lot to your right..that's one of the parking areas that require the Gateway pass.
  25. Top red one of mine . From about 13 years ago.
