  1. Bump, $175 shipped w/o braid, $195 with the braid (best on the market)
  2. Is he able to get a length of the collapsed rod (no case)? Sorry for all the questions, its been hard to get specifics on these rods and I need something soon
  3. Okay, no rush. Thanks Didn't see any in stock :/
  4. How do you work/swim a glider?
  5. Oh yea? Would you mind listing the length of the collapsed rod, without the travel case? I need to get stay under 33", but I know the travel case for the 10' models is like 35", so I'd be traveling without. Also, can you get a weight of the 9ft rod? I have that one and can compare weights to see if they used lighter blanks.

  7. You handled the new Okuma voyager travel rods? Are they the same blank or were they able to lighten things up a little?
  8. Ha! Right on. Hope it's been working well for you, I miss those rods
  9. Don't put it up just yet, I'm out of town til tomorrow. I live near you but let me check my garage and get back to you on Mon/Tues
  10. I have the M-ML Nomad spinning rod and I like it. I also have the TFO which I like a little better. The TFO is much lighter, but I would trust the Nomad with bigger fish because it bends deeper into the blank. Since you've been recommended both of those, I'll skip them. Based on your first post, you should look at the following: US St. Croix Legend Trek Rod - LTS76MHF3 Foreign Daiwa "7 1/2" All-around Travel Rod - 76MHS or 76MS (this one is the best, imo) Gamakatsu Akilas Mobile Travel Rod - several models would work, 5-piece rods fit carry-on dimensions Daiwa Saltist Travel Rod - STT805MHS-AU Molix Fioretto Essence Travel Rod - MFE-ST-764MH I think Westin might also have something up your alley. There are a bunch more in the eurozone, check Waveinn and Luregeek.

  12. The 8k would work on any of them. You don't want to spool diam to get too much bigger than the stripper (first guide) ring. Heck even a 6k would work
  13. Culebra or Vieques, a al Puerto Rico. Very safe, very DIYable
  14. The bull popper?
