  2. Weightless fluke. 28*degrees out
  3. Can anyone tell me where I can get the cork tape with no rubber? Preferably not in a 25ft roll, something smaller?
  4. I can get the one piece blank for about 170$ through a rod builder, conversely the 2 piece I can get for about 130$. My question is am I sacrificing any performance choosing the 2 piece over the 1 piece. Saving 40$ worth it? Which would you build? Are there 70/30 split lamiglass that would also be an alternative ? Thanks for any input !
  5. Something easy to use and easy on the wallet . Appreciate any input

  13. I agree. There’s a gold used vs150 on an auction site that is getting dumb pricey by the day lol . Meanwhile a silver one on the same site is close to 75$ cheaper and is a vsx. The gold one is described by the seller as a collectible.
  14. I’ve been looking through the bts forums and always keep an eye out for a used Van staal reel. What’s an average price for used: vs150 worth compared to Vsx150 vs200compared with vsx200. All bail-less Let’s say they are all in the same shape cosmetically and each been serviced to working capacity. 3 years use or so. Thanks for any help .
