  1. I can do $75 pickup this friday evening or Saturday morning for Avid
  2. I brought , built and tested the wahoo and delmar 10’ blanks at Ccc (3-5oz bucktails) ; not as fast action as others like CTS baycaster or 1209; and due to blank materials and these completed rods weight is about (18-20oz) ; my 2cents - if u can get the blank without paying shipping , it worth a try with them;
  3. If the rod is broken more than 6” from tip, it is most likely not worth to fix; and repair with insert will become a rod u wont like ; sorry to say, u may just have to give it up ; just save the guides parts for next rod.
  4. Hahaha; orleans is little too far; thanks and good luck
  5. Offering $60 cash pickup southshore area; since i plan to clean and rebuild with k-guides, will take hrs labor; sorry can not offer the asking ;
  6. you can use Cork tape to wrap it with (1/2" - 1) space between and shrink wrap it over; like picture attached; this will make it look even and also reduce amount of weight; but, I assume you are doing this for experimenting since extend an 8' to 10' rod it is just not worth it; u better off buying an 10' rod for you purpose; for sure you can find a used rod/blank somewhere, and spend some labor to clean and rebuild it.
  7. can you let me know where (town) in CT , if I am willing to drive down to meet you off 95, I need to know which exist of 95 ; and I can offer $250 cash pickup for both rods.
  8. Agreed here, more on your height, casting style , jig or plug and how u want to flight the fish with the rod; and also find the sweet seat spot to load the rod for distance is more important.... some my rods 9- 10’ i move the seat to 18” from butt for a purpose. So i wont be worry balance here like Drew said; also adding 2oz weight is alot to a setup (rod and reel and line) and u will hate it later; note: i am trying to remove rod weight , any weight removed helps with 10hrs of nonstop fish hahaha
  9. U better off find out why not balancing and fix/adjust it; is it seat position? Or reel size? It is painful to remove the extra weight glue with epoxy if one piece; - Rod length , rating? And your reel make/model? Butt to mod reel seat measurement? redo/design the handle shrink wrap with additional cork can add 1-2oz weight Or maybe you end up clean and rebuild to fit ur reel or buying new reel ;
  10. ; if u meet me around exit93 (95) ; i offer $130 cash for the Avid; Will drive down to meet from MA this Sat morning.
  11. Keep in mind, cast out 40yds , 70yds and 90yd+ ; the weight of jig (2-5oz) , your rod(s) and reel will matter more with current speed change ; spend your the time to learn or go with someone u can learn from is your best option; telling you to use 5oz is meaningless if your rod can not handle 5oz; u will just donate it to canal
  12. Would u take $33 shipped/ppl to MA?
  13. would u show some pic of type of fuji guides ; maybe i can do $80 cash pickup this weekend; thx you
  14. Just want to give u heads up; shipping over 9’ within US is very expensive ( $150-$200); u may want to check the shipping cost first; it will be more than $20 for sure; good luck
  15. VW Passat can fit up to 11’6” rod with backseat open; only reason i buy it
