  1. Tsunami Saltx6000 for sale.

    Details: Fished hard for almost two years, id say a year and a half. Going to be flat out honest with this. 

    The reel is a tank, but it has its limits. When i first bought it, I did believe if could be treated like a VSX. To my stupidity, i did treat it like that, and then i learned it wasnt supposed to be. So i took it apart, cleaned it up, and that night, went right back to feeling brand new. No squeaking, nothing. It CAN take dunking and spray, but not reeling underwater like i was. Id compare it to a Van Staal VR series reel.

    The reel is at a cool 9/10 rating for its “cosmetic” look.

    And the mechanical side is at a 8.5/10, right now. Drag is butter smooth. No squeaking. If someone does end up buying it, id highly recommend getting it serviced. If you do not know a place, I highly recommend Reel Seat in Brielle, as they service these reels and have done a phenomenal job in the past servicing my reels. I would easily bump the mechanical side to 10/10 once they, or any other tackle shop does do a winter service on the reel. 

    Comes with the box, bail, and tool to convert the arm.

    I am asking for $275, which is $125 dollars under brand new retail. Venmo preferred, but I will accept Paypal friends and family if the buyer does not have venmo. Feel free to ask question, and thanks for looking!

    if it's a travel criteria, primarily, why not an ODM Genesis? or Lamiglas GSB?
    2pc. with a 50/50/split, vs the 70/30 splits of the rods you are considering?

    50/50 or 70/30 doesnt bother me. I appreciate all the recommendations. I guess i didnt write in my first question enough. Im not looking to spend more than 300, and those two rods fell into my budget. All i really wanted to know is how those rods cast certain weights of plugs.

    Gsb1321m you dont need anything else for the beaches an boulder fields.  A 1081L or m will cover your back bay needs, two rod quiver, done.


    I already use a 1321m for the northeast. I need a travel rod for Florida, Mexico, Costa Rica, and anywhere else I am traveling in the future.

    Quite the range for a travel rod, almost sounds like you want two. Haven't held those specific rods, but having both an ODM and Carbon surf I would say the sweet spot on the carbon is lower in the rating than the ODM. My advice would be to get a GSB.


    Good luck!

    I do want the 3-8 version's of either brand as long as it can send a 2oz plug into oblivion, just like my 1321m does. I know lamination's has a habit of exaggerating the lure ratings on gsbs at least, as mine is rating 3-7. I can throw a 1-3/4 plastic swimmer very far, and feel it very well. was wondering if I could do the same with the odd or carbon surf, which are two piece rods. Mostly going to be doing tarpon, rooster fish, jacks, Cubera, and whatever other big game surf fish I decide to target in the future. 

  5. Looking for people that have used the odm dna 11ft 1-5oz and 3-8 oz, as well as people that have used the lami carbon surf 11ft 1-5 and 3-8.

    Let me know how the rod performed, what the sweet spots are on the rod, fighting power, as well as negatives of the rod. Need a travel rod, and its between those 4!

    Thank you in advance!

  6. Everyone does prove a good point in here when it comes to people being on a screen for a significant amount of time throughout the day with the pandemic going on. With the amount of platforms to see plugs, such as Facebook, Instagram, SOL, and Ebay, it sure does get guys wanting to buy them. There aren't things to go outside of the house to really spend money on, and people are resorting to buying plugs. Now, I will also agree that it is absolutely nuts that people will spend the amount of money I have seen being spent on certain plugs. Sure, don't me wrong, Mikes custom's builds a phenomenal darter. Never had one, but from hearing from others, I'm certain it does a phenomenal job of catching fish. But to spend the amount on that compared to 20 dollars for a superstrike, which has proven itself day in and day out, mind boggles me. But to each of their own, If someone has the money to spend on it and it satisfies them, good for them. In addition, the reason I think the plug market is going crazy is because of how many people have recently got into the sport. I know a few people that work in tackle shops, and they had a huge interest this year from people who haven't fished ever. Buying quality reels, rods, bags, etc. So when you look at the price of some plugs compared to others as a newbie, you will assume that the plug is of high quality, which in this case, all these plugs are! Does that make the the price some of them are selling for? In my opinion, no, but that's not for me to decide whether someone wants to spend the money on a plug or not.
