  1. anyone interested bump
  2. I am looking for a 8' Century sling shot rod (SS965). Or a clean Van Staal 150 size (I could throw in extra cash)
  3. bump Price lowered. $225 shipped.
  4. I have one of these Daiwa Ballistic Rod Blanks (model number is SA-BS 33-405 B) and decided sell it since I never got around to building it... I was told this is the "better" early version that was made in Thailand. Still in the original plastic packaging but bag has been opened. "These rods are great because they are in 3 pieces but when you put them together they feel like one piece." On most websites these are listed for $350+ each. Looking to sell this for $250 including shipping, insurance and tracking.
  5. Can you expand on this? Is there an old and new version? How do I know I am ordering the Graphene version. What’s bad motor scooter?
  6. Is the Arra 1083 discontinued? It says this on the lamiglas website. Whats the weight on the rod?
  7. I am looking for a 8-9 foot rod for primarily surf fishing open beach throwing 5/8 oz flash Minnows for west coast stripers and maybe throwing for other stuff (halibut) up to 2oz max. I have a VS100x reel. I am leaning towards a Century slingshot SS1025 or an x-11 (lx 86 MH GH). If price wasn’t a factor what rods should I consider? Thank you!
  8. I have read a ton of back posts and still have some questions. Any help would be great! Looking to upgrade my current light tackle setup for shore fishing from the Bay Area California. Not too concerned with price but I want value.. Looking for a light tackle setup to fish beaches for Surf Perch, Striper, Halibut etc. I don't ever soak bait. I like to cover a lot of ground usually using Sp minnows, bucktails and carolina rigs with gulp sandworms etc (2oz and under). Thinking about a St Croix Avid SURF 10 Ft 1-4 OZ AVSS100MF2 Paired with a Stradic 3000 Ci4+ I will admit a handful of times I have dropped my last setup in the sand and rinsed with ocean water while out fishing. I am concerned that I am going to ruin this reel pretty quick? Is this the wrong power rod for what I am doing? Possibly considering a VS150? And possibly a 8'6" Salmon Steelhead rod instead?
  9. What about using the new Shimano Tranx 400 that is coming out next month? Any opinions on this reel for this application"?
  10. I am pretty firm at $450 shipped including shipping, paypal fees etc.. for BOTH rods
  11. I have two of these Daiwa Saltiga Ballistic Rod Blanks and decided sell them instead of having them Custom built. These are the good ones made in Thailand I believe. The model number is SABS-33-405B. These are still in the original plastic packaging. These rods are great because they are in 3 pieces but when you put them together they feel like one piece. On most websites these are listed for $350+ each. Looking to sell these for for $240 each including shipping, insurance and tracking or $450 shipped for the pair including shipping, insurance and tracking.
