  1. Great rod. I’ve been using mine for over 4 years now. It will easily launch anything between 3/4 oz and 2 oz. Anything over and im switching to my other rods. As for flat spots...i dont even know how one would suddenly develop on a rod via regular use. The guides dont magically shift positions and the blank itself doesnt tire out.
  2. Hey IFish 9’3” is more of a beef stick. I use it for general chunk and bait duty from various jetties and backside areas where swinging around an 11’ chunker might be a problem. It truly excels at that too. It has plenty of backbone to control and land fish on the rocks yet the tip is soft enough to detect delicate bites. Im sure you could lunch a popper with it quite a ways but a 9’6” is much better at that. The rod is quite lightweight and the butt / handle area is thick, unlike on the 9’6”.
  3. Hey Wiretap, Unfortunately shipping is too expensive and i hope so as to moving them. Thanks!
  4. Hey Bio, When i spoke with a UPS clerk he said roughly $60. Im not shipping due to that reason. Tight lines.
  5. Thank you FD! Tight lines. Rods that are still available for sale: 1. 10’ Cabela's Salt Striker CSS-CTS10A Surf Spinning Rod 2. Tica UGSA12XH2S EX-HEAVY TC3 Dolphin Surf Spinning Rod 3. St Croix MIS76MHF Mojo Inshore Spinning Rod 4. St Croix MSS90MMF2 Mojo Surf Spinning Rods
  6. Hey Reel, Im there once in a blue moon. However, it looks like FD will take it at offer. If it falls through I’ll try to arrange something. Bluefishmaster The guides look awfully similar to what i have on my Tica USGA series but im not 100% sure. As per spec sheet sheet: Guide type: Stainless steel with aluminum oxide inserts I did hear from some of the guys at the time of purchase that Cabelas Salt Striker series were rebranded Daiwa surf rods. However, i dont have additional information or proof. As for wear and tear i believe part of the Salt Striker sticker is coming off. I dont see any other wear and tear items except minor scratches. But those are trivial at best. The rod wasn’t much in rotation. FD I can meet you any day after 6 pm. Let me know what works for you. Im in Park Slope area but travel to Jbay, south shore almost on daily basis. Thanks
  7. Hey Robbie, Sorry about the delayed response. The shipping cost for a one piece 7’6” rod is too high. I would let it go for $110 if picked up.

  9. Plasti dip in a spray for slow seam leaks and preventive maintenance.
  10. Wow

    Aint nobody fishin for sport...that’s for sure.
  11. Hope it will pass. It worked down south it should work here.
  12. A little on the pricey side but well worth the $$ in the long run. I’ve been using a musky case by Lakewood for the past 3 years. Plenty of room and tough as heck. I believe newer models use removable sleeves making plug swapping a breeze.
  13. Lol only the 2nd smartest mammal...falling for a plastic wobbly junk lure. Lol But yeah they are way cool. Had one do a full breach 20 feet away from me while sitting in a line up a couple of weeks ago during hurricane Dorian...the “oh sh@t!” moment i will never forget. These suckers are much bigger than expected up close and personal. Glad to have them around.
  14. Knife and pliers with a lanyard attached to the bag.
