  1. I have a black one. I think I picked it up on here as a combo. The reel foot was a little bent. I bent it back partially to where it’s useable. Maybe Bob can sell you a new one if it’s not good enough for you. I’ll try and shoot you pics over the weekend.
  2. Damn, that’s a generous offer, Nick. Hope all is well. See you on the jetty this year.
  3. Tough to compare. The heat is only an 8 and I have a heavy, sinking line on it whereas the shortstix is a 9/10 and I have an intermediate line on it. All I can say is that it had good backbone. For a hundred bucks I gave it a shot and I don’t regret it

  5. I’m also a fan of my shortstix. I read a recommendation on here about the white river heat rod from basspro. For a hundred bucks I had to give it a shot. Not high end obviously, but it did real well fighting big blues earlier this year.
  6. Make sure there’s not a lot of seaweed of similar around in moving water. That’ll wrap around your line and may pull you under. Same for kayaks
  7. Try to PM him. You never know
  8. There’s an active shortstix thread in this forum
  9. Interested in the 2 spinning rods. I’m going to be at Mansion Marina later. Any chance of meeting up?
  10. You’re still the best, Herb! Hope all is great. Always room for you on the boat if you’re in town. Especially in the fall (albies).
  11. You can drill bigger holes and use automotive flat grommet type rubber plugs for times you may not want them.
  12. On the boat, you may consider this. Keep a wet towel in it. Weighs it down, keeps the line wet and you can stand the rod in it when running. 8 bucks at the Swedish place.
  13. More like 24-2500 to fix. Just had mine done (‘03). Didn’t show any signs of corrosion, but I wanted to sleep a little better. In my 3rd season with . Original owner put 400 hrs on. I’ve got it up to 720 now. Provided you don’t have that issue or the oil pan / t stat corrosion it’s a great motor. At least it’s been for me. Quiet, good enough power. ( ‘03 Scout 235) Longevity wise, I can’t help you on.
  14. Been putting one of these "Heat" rods to work on some nice sized blue fish the last couple of weekends. Holding up like a champ. I prefer the shorter rods on the boat. I'm liking the rubber grip and it throws nicely too. For 100 bucks, you can't go wrong.
  15. May want to list in the fly fishing BST sub forum
