  1. You can find the better quality Lamsons available from online retailers for under $200 and they are a great value for a USA product. I had Colton's and wasn't a fan as I had issues with mine.
  2. I owned a 7/8 and 9/10 overall they were great reels but I was disappointed by the drag as it was way less than advertised. Although I have friends who have caught small tuna and sharks on them but they require a lot of spool palming to do that.
  3. How'd you do?
  4. I've considered this rod before and I'm curios is the glass any better on your shoulders? Did you notice any loss in fishability (casting, loops, etc.) as compared to other rods?
  5. Any idea how much smaller in diameter that the 712 gears are? Any concerns with the gears being smaller that they could wear out or break faster especially with all the extra pressure that surf fishing puts on it?
  6. Actually ended up buying one somewhere else. So I will pass.
  7. Great I'll take it.
  8. Still available?
  9. How much 20lb fireline will a 704/706 take? What about 14lb?
  10. Sold!
  11. Great! Sending text. I'm in falmouth and work by bourne bridge so I'm sure we can figure out place to meet up.
  12. Great!
  13. Still available! Buyer had to back out due to recent events.
  14. Sure I'll do $250. Sending you a PM.
