  1. What about a Stradic FK--they are all on sale now 150 bucks. Or what baout the Stradic FL I fish from shore???
  2. Yes, I'm a great guy, and thanks for the advice. Caustic bad, enthusiasm good. Have to learn to separate the two. I feel so much at times...it's like my mouth is overwhelmed with words, many of them not very nice.
  3. C'mon CPalms isn't that bad of a guy mumichog--a little insecure DUE TO NOT LEARNING FUNDAMENTALS OF CASTING FLIES MAYBE???!!!????
  4. Hunter I was just yanking your chaing buddy! WE'RE ALL GOOD AS I RECALL. LET'S REMEMBER TO HAVE SENSE OF HUMOR IN THESE DIFFICULT DAYS OF SUMMER DOLDRUMS!
  5. This is pretty basic. You have some rods you're looking to cut in half, or cut in to more segments as case may be. How to accomplish? Thanks to Drew this method helped me out big time. I thought I'd pay back in to the pot with some photos of the process to help newcomers. Start off with your rod. Here I need to cut the butt of this Penn junko rod to fit in bin. PER DREW's INSTRUCTIONS: wrap some tape around the cut point. I did five wraps here using commonly available painter's tape--can grab at HOME DEPOT!!!: Line up your cut. Begin sawing keeping your fingers out of the path of the blade!!! Here's what it looks like when complete: As you can see a very clean method without much splintering or spraying of dust. I tried the stepping on the rods method. It was much messier, Drew!!! Last step, not pictured here, is to put in the garbage can. So maybe Hunter2938 wants to take back what he said about me NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR THE WEBSITE???!!!!!!?
  6. It's a problem I agree!@!
  7. By the time most posters open this to contribute, it WILL BE OVER!!!!
  8. Now I'm thinking I don't want a magsealed reel. It's a bit too much of a maintenance headache because you have to amil it somewhere.
  9. It's Sunday morning, Wimbledon is over, it's the middle of July. Summer doldrums basically. TIME TO TURN REFLECTIVE, LOOK INWARD, AND REVIEW THE FIRST HALF OF THE YEAR, FOCUSING ON THIS WEBSITE FIRST. START WITH: THINGS YOU HATE ABOUT THIS WEBSITE AND PEOPLE YOU HATE ON IT: 1. TOO MANY ADS 2. BORING LAYOUT 3. ANTISEMITISM 4. HEADLAMP ADVOCATES 5. TOO MANY OPTIONS *
  10. HOW OFTEN ARE THE SALES?!?!?!?!
  11. Ravens52988, ASSUMING YOU ARE NOT AN ANTI-SEMITE, CAN YOU PLEASE TAKE SOME ADVICE FROM THIS OLD LUMP OF COAL: DON'T WASTE YOUR ENERGY PISSING AND MOANING WITH THE ANTI-SEMITE!!!
  12. Neat video. Feel like the top two reels in here I'v e been there done dat in t he battle and the BG they simply can't stand up to the hard pounding I'm going to give these reels, fishing hard and long and frankly often.
  13. Only thing that makes me think twice is the weight of the Spinfisher!!!
  14. I don't know. Maybe I just fish a lot and it doesn't have to do with that. With spooks you're jerking the rod hundreds of time per cast while reeling I don't if that creates uneven wear on the gears or something all I know is these low end cast gears last me about 4-5 months before going bad :(I
  15. Same here
