  1. Bump, fish are here.
  2. I see you where selling your compass I was curious if you had any complaints about it. I was looking at outback but compass is also a possibility. 

  3. Century Surfcasting rod. 2-8oz. The Century blank this rod is built on is a one of a kind that was made for me as a replacement for a Century C2-D 3.75 that broke. Made more robustly to withstand the biggest Stripers you’d jig out of the Canal. Rod is new, never used, built last year by Chris Aubut of Aubut Rods. If you like the Century Sling Shot SS1329, you’ll love this rod. Asking $700 shipped. (Reel NOT included) BTW a factory built Century C2-D sells for $1150.00 Will ship free CONUS USA, though I would rather you pick up to make sure you are 1000% happy with the rod before it leaves the house.
  4. Please close. Got a reel.
  5. Will pass, thanks.
  6. Looking to buy a well taken care of 8 or 9 wt Fly Reel. Great if you had an extra spool. Please let me know what you have. Best, Christian
  7. Hi Shu, I have sent you a PM. Please call me and I can tell you everything I know about this blank and rod. If you are anywhere in Boston area you are welcome to come see it. I will also share the Rod maker contact info if you want to talk to him. Best, Christian
  8. Bump, would also consider trades for 8wt FlyFish reel, quality lures, Zeebass or VanStaal reel.
  9. I don’t know the specs, but clearly at least 2-8. Guides are Fuji K Titanium. Best, Christian

  11. I checked all these things. Everything is snug, no play, no slop, it’s super smooth. It just clacks when you stop really fast. The thing is that I never stop really fast when Im fishing so it’s a non issue when being used. I will take it to Tomo’s to have it checked out by local reel repairman. If need be I will ship back to Japan for service. Thanks for the thoughts.
  12. I have a very lightly used Catalina reel that I just sold and was returned because of a noise that I was not aware of. If you turn the handle and stop it quickly it makes a clack noise. Is this normal or is there something wrong? The reel is very smooth otherwise. Attached is a video were you can see and hear what I mean, as well a a Saltiga (higher end) reel that does not do this. Don’t want to put it up for sale again until I know if this is normal or an issue to be resolved. Thanks, Christian IMG_3917.MOV
  13. Please close, bought one.
  14. WTB used Talica handle. Let me know what you have and price. Thanks, Christian
