  1. Nicely done. Bow to the King.
  2. When I saw Berkeley I got excited. Then I realized this was not on the west coast.
  3. Free weights, a Smith machine for bench press and squats, kettle balls as well. If there's one piece of equipment that I would not give up it's my Versa Climber. That machine kicks my ass. When I don't have time to do a full gym workout I hit the versaclimber for 12-16 minutes.
  4. I believe they stopped making the Pangea rods a couple years back. There are a few on Ebay for $1,000 each. I was able to source the two rods I found for less than that combined. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm going to look at Apia and Tenryu rods. Never heard of them. Also looking at the Daiwa Tournament Ballistic Surf rods. Any of you have any experience with them? Specifically the 11' and 13' foot models. I think one of those paired with a Dogfight would be all the surf rod I'll ever need.
  5. What a great idea. Not interested in participating but I will search out those books to buy.
  6. I'm happy to see boxing making a mild comeback. Will probably never see the hay days again, but we have a few good prospects in the ring with Lomachenko, Mikey Garcia, Canelo Alvarez, and Errol Spence Jr.
  7. We took the day off yesterday. Wife had a day to herself and I ran some errands. Gave her a card and we had a nice dinner at the local burger joint. We leave the nice restaurants for anything but Valentine's Day. Most places are usually a complete mess that day.
  8. My dad is 81 and could probably still kick my ass. My saving grace is that I could probably outrun him. My mom turns 80 this year and is very active. They help my wife and I with our garden - mom's passion is flowers and dad will do whatever mom asks him to do. We took a few trips to Brazil for peacocks. Last time we went was 2009. We tried to go again in '14 but the weather was not cooperative. I'm hoping we can go next year. He tells me he wants to go at least more time.
  9. This site is going to make me spend a lot of money.
  10. I just replaced my Crkt pocket knife with an Emerson. It's crazy sharp.
  11. I'm with you and agree. I'm going to start researching for a heavier action rod in the 1-3 oz range. I'm looking for as light a rod as I can get my hands on. Also big fan of the Dogfight reel. Leaning towards that to pair.
  12. I'm a Samurai braid junkie, the new J braid they've come with sounds interesting. I'd never heard of Jerry Brown spectra prior to this site.
  13. So 99% of my fishing gear is bass related, as I do most of my fishing out of my boat. Going to add to that a bit this year. I just ordered two Megabass Pangea surf rods. A heavy action and a light. The heavy is rated up to 1 5/8 oz or so, the light I believe up to an ounce. These will be paired with a Gaus30X and a Stella 3000. Looking forward to putting them through their paces. I'm a Megabass junkie. Hell I'm a JDM junkie as most of my rods are either Megabass, Gan Craft or Evergreen. I've heard that these Pangea rods are crazy light. Anyone here have any experience with them?
  14. I have fishing rods and reels in the office, home office, attic, spare bedroom. Lures as well. I have a double prop lure for peacocks I hang on the Christmas tree every year, one of the last ones made for me by my late friend Joe from Bodega Bay lures. He was the best!
  15. For the same reasons mentioned above a short stouter rod makes sense, unless you have a pier net which would then help with anything you wouldn't want to lose while winching up your catch.
