  1. just a follow up and thank you to all!! i got the Predator and have fought a few stripers and shad before the end of last season and it has about the right amount of give to play schoolies all evening
  2. Is the 10 striper float a cold water line?
  3. Close this is a duplicate post
  4. Looking for a 10wt cold salt water floating line. If anyones looking to lighten thier collection let me know.

  6. Thank you snapper
  7. Most of the lines I have are a airflo cold water striper intermediate and floating the only heavier line I own is a 300 grain airflo depth finder. I'm not as well versed in the ins and out of fly lines so not sure if they fall into the "standard aftma" you mentioned
  8. Thanks for the heads up unfortunately I'm limited to strictly a redington cause of the 50% off coupon. Otherwise I wouldn't be looking at purchasing a $350 to $400 fly rod. But figured it was a.chance to get a nice high end rod without the guilt of the full price tag
  9. You positive on that? I spoke with a rep yesterday about possibly getting an 8wt to double duty as a large mouth bass rod and smaller striper rod and was told that the predator is pretty spot on with its rating and that my 9wt lines wouldn't match up to it too well. Just don't want to pull the trigger and get stuck with something that won't work for the applications. Lue
  10. When you say heavy do you mean like in actual physical weight or the amount of force it takes to load the rod?
  11. Wow, Baldwin these are such clean flatwings! These look like they would snake beautifully in the current
  12. Hey fellas So after being a newb to fly fishing for the past 3-4 years, my starter rod finally gave out on me during an outing in the cape, anywho I reached out to the fine people at redington and was able to get a 50% off coupon towards a new purchase, so I'm limited to getting from said brand. After looking at their line up I figured I'd make use of the discount and get one of thier higher end rods and it would not break the bank. So I wanted to ask if anyone has tried either the Crux or the Predator line of rods? My application would be for saltwater North East, stripped bass, bluefish, fluke, Albies. I already have several 9wt fly lines so would rather stick to that weight of rod. Attached is a picture of my now deceased rod mid biting the dust. Lue
  13. Thanks for the assist everyone just won an auction for the 1495 below. Anyone got tips on how to restore it a bit. Get the tarnish off the metal and what not. Luis
  14. Thanks for the replies all. I did happen to find a 1495 medalist, dose anyone have any opinions on that model?
  15. Hey all Dumb question from a not so newbie. So now that the winter has settled in the itch to fish has risen in me to try fresh water for the fist time. I've got my self a 5 wt combo to go after trout and it came with a cheapy plastic reel I'd like to upgrade to something a bit more substantial. I know I don't need a crazy high end reel for trout so i wanted to look into a cost effective reliable used reel. Heard the pfluger medalist are work horses and figured I'd ask which model should I'd be hunting for that would permit 5-6wt line to be put on it. Theres alot of.conflicting.info I'm finding so just wanted to ask the community directly what their opinions are. Any info would be a great help. Lue
