  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
  16. Call Felipe 732 222 1026 Blue Line Marine transport Great guy.
  17. Sorry, very busy these days. I found it. Looks like I made some mods to it back when I was using it. Looks ready for wheels. I may have the hard wheels that came with it too. Not sure. All those old toys are under the deck.
  18. Sure. I’ll do it tomorrow
  19. I've got the cart, but no wheels if you can source them somewhere else. I think I gave them away. Been sitting under the deck for awhile. Not sure what it looks like. You can have it for free. I'm on Staten Island.
  20. Use the viair. I think I have the 88p model. Works great. Alligator clips to the battery. Anything that plugs into the lighter is going to be low powered.
  21. Still available?
  22. I'll take 10 of each. Let me know what the total is with shipping to 10306. Thanks
  23. Curious what fish you’re targeting that the line capacity of the 9/10 isn’t sufficient.
  24. I’ve used both and I find the delstang holders to be made better. Many color options if that’s your thing. They also make a polycarbonate (clear) one that just slips into an existing holder. Also very easy to duplicate if you’re a diy guy.
  25. I'll defer to the Dreamer, if he passes, I'll take it for 80.
