  1. It's just like everything else out there right now. Supply chain shortages..
  2. Texas and Oklahoma.
  3. I appreciate your input sir! I'll add the #16 and maybe one or two more #6's and see what it looks like.
  4. Hey guys. I've built and use only spinning setups for stripers but wanted to build a baitcasting setup for a change. Mainly for throwing 2oz swimbaits. The guides will be Fuji T-LRVTG titanium torzites, Fuji casting reel seat and EVA/Heat-shrink wrap. My reel of choice will be the Daiwa Lexa 300HD for now. Any comments or feedback on how to optimize this build are welcome!
  5. I've built and tested mostly CTS VT, 11ft 12ft and 13ft. I think a 12ft 3-6oz will get you what you wanted.
  6. A 10ft 3/4-2.5oz will be around 9-11oz.
  7. I own two Visser #4's, two VR50's and two Certate LT 5k, and other Shimano/Daiwa reels around the same price point. I'm a shore-bound chasing fresh water striper only so I can't speak for the salt water guys but the visser #4 is my "go-to" reel. It's got that rugged feel, plenty of power, line capacity and I dare to say outcast all other reels in my arsenal using same braid. I've put many hours on mine and no issues yet (knock on wood). Now, when can I get my hands on a Model-S?
  8. I'm a car guy as well as a fisherman. It's almost like asking, "Can I tow everything with a car"?
  9. All custom built CTS VT's from 11ft to 13ft.
  10. I use the 50/50 weight balance on all my setups and works well for me. Like a Shimano Vanquish 5k (about 7.5oz) on my 11ft 1-2.7oz seabass rods - (about 7.5oz) and Visser #4 (12oz) on my (12oz) CTS 2-4oz. Don't know what it is but it just works for me.
  11. Yes. I bought it for my 14000 but ended up not needing it.
  12. Selling brand new SLP Works round knob for the new Saltiga - $90 with shipping included.
  13. I recently "upgrade" all my plugs to one inline single hook. Loved it. Cast so much better, better action and unhooking a fish is a breeze.
  14. Fish fling the plug with treble hooks straight to his leg.
  15. Inline single without barb only. Incase I hook myself or anyone else... One hole in the finger without barb will save a lot of pain and a trip to the ER.
