  1. What is size of reel to match on rod? Where are you located?
  2. Sounds good, let me know if you want more pics.
  3. I have this new Lamiglas it's 10' rated for 3-8oz. 2pc 50/50 split. $175. Shipped. I can post more pictures if you like. This rod would match up perfect with that Newell.
  4. My Okuma backpack was the older version. They have a new version that apears to be built better. This picture is the new one, I plan to purchase the new version sometime this spring. Once I get the new Okuma "Nomad" pack I will post a update with pictures.
  5. I have been using the Shimano BackPack "large". It is a great bag, solid and built well but with that comes weight. The tray that come with it are usless to me, to small to hold salt water. I removed two of the trays and replaced it with a double high tray. Before that I was using the Okuma BackPack. I like the Okuma bag too, better than the Shimano, it has a bigger main compartment to hold more, like cloths, rain gear, etc. not as heavy empty. With that said the Okuma Pack lasted about 4 seasons before it started to fall apart.
  6. I have sheath and lanyard, both new. $40. Shipped US. VS reel bag add $25.
  7. The Magic Swimmers shown are the largest ones made. You should have no problem fitting 9-10 inch GRS size plugs.
  8. I have this Lamiglas, XS 10MHC, rated 3-8oz conventional rod is new never used. I will let it go for $150. PU. I paid close to $400. And is has been sitting in my closet. I also have a Lamiglas Super Surf SS 106MHS spinning lightly used rated 4-8oz new $450. sell for $250. Both for $350. picked up, I will ship if needed.
  9. I have an extra tall plug bag, they hold a ton of gear and plugs, I don't think I will never carry 2 bags. This bag was designed for the big Majic Swimmers. Bag is new, never used still wrapped in plastic. Pics are of my other bag. Bag cost $99. in the shops. $75. picked up. I am located on Cape Cod near Canal, hope this helps you out.
  10. The Saragosa is your best bet, especially if you are jigging or throwing plugs 3oz or more. For a reel costing less than $300. It is built using better parts and with their SW technology it holds up better than most reels in that price range. What Shimano's SW is putting a bearing on top and bottom of the pinion gear and this help keep the pinion gear and spool shaft from flexing, moving away from main gear while fighting fish and jigging. This helps with less fatigue on the reel and gives the reel a smooth retrieve and a longer life of the reel. WWW.CAPECODREELS.COM
  11. Cape Cod Reels does great work and does it for a lot less then my local Tackle shop. They stand behind their work and are Tournament proven to be the best. If you're not near the Cape you can mail them your reels. Cape Cod Reels is the best for repairs and Clean, Lube and Tune. They are amazing at bringing life back to old beat up reels.

  12. You can also use Starboard for a back plate. Most Swivel Rod holders have a ajustable nut so you can a just how much tension is used to move the rod, you can tighten so rod doesn't move. Just make sure the rod is facing the direction you want before tightening the nut. Some swivel manufacturers make the rod holders with a removable pin so you can use as a standard rod holder without having to a just swivel nut. I personally use this type and it works well. The pin is usually attached to holder by a leach so you don't loose pin.
  13. I will take for asking if others don't pan out. Thanks
  14. How about listing what you are selling?
