  2. Pretty much what I was going to add
  3. Sorry Tim, thought I had cut/pasted around any links. Happy Belated Birthday!

  5. Sigh, OK if I have to...
  6. A million years ago, when I was young, OK it was only 30ish years ago, I used to buy pre-tied teasers from Smith Point Bait and Tackle. I'm not sure why I remember this but the rig was a swivel on top and clip on the bottom (duo-lock if I remember correctly). The teaser was a red gill that was tied on the tag end of the knot from the swivel. I don't remember the knot, I wish I still had one around. If anyone knows Craig maybe he might remember.
  7. Always use a leader with braid. As strong as braid is, it pops pretty easy once it gets chafed. 30-36" is a good length. In rocky areas I use 60# Jinkai, it makes handling fish much safer on your hands as well. I do not use a swivel, many do. I prefer to tie leader to braid with a slim beauty knot. Other good knots are the FG, Alberto or Albright. If you want to use a clip I tie a Uni knot, or a palomar. If you want to tie your leader to the lure I prefer a loop knot like the Rapala knot.
  8. I received the reel today, looks great. Thank you Redfish12 and SOL. Please close the thread.
  9. Not thrilled with the belly hook, but I might run it without it. For the price I might pick a few up and test them.
  10. I can do Paypal, or check. I'm not in an hurry and I'm not set up for Venmo. LMK what works better for you.
  11. Man, it looks great. I guess I can't pass it up. I don't need the rod, I've got a blank I want to build. How do you want to handle payment?
  12. If I can see some pics that would be great.
  13. Looking to buy a lefty Tranx 300.
