LuPork posted a topic in Main ForumHello All, I am trying to decide which Shimano Baitrunner would be best for chunking bait for stripers on Long Island. I already have the 6500A and 6500 Triton Sea-Spin. Rod is 10ft Penn Prevail 1-5oz. If I choose a different model I would sell the 6500A and Triton to offset the cost. I have a Penn Battle II 5500 I use for plugging so this question is specific to a bait setup. 6500Triton Sea-Spin (already owned, made in Japan, graphite/plastic spool) 6500A (already owned, made in Malaysia, aluminum spool) 6000OC (rumors the newer stuff isn't as durable) 6500B (less durable than Triton/A?) Don't use a Baitrunner for bait-fishing surf on Long Island (why not?) Also, does made in Japan matter enough to put the Triton ahead of other models? Thanks all!
CharlieB posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade ForumChunking combo, suitable for beach sharking. Tica UEHA836502S, 12 ft, 4-10oz, 2-piece spinning rod. Good shape, a little scuffed up. Shimano Baitrunner 6500B, Good shape, a few nicks. Spooled with new 65lb Power pro. Box & paperwork. $150 picked up/meet up. I'm near Morristown, NJ but travel to CT/MA often for work. Probably be around Raritan Bay in the next few weeks as well.
Kierran posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade ForumTwo discontinued classics; one serious combo. Both rod and reel are lightly used and in great shape: 10/10 functionally and 8.5/10 cosmetically. They always received a freshwater rinse after each outing. This is a big-boy, hard-to-find chunking setup. I just don’t have a great deal of use for it anymore. St. Croix Premier Surf Rod: 10’6” Medium-Heavy Power; Moderate-Fast Action; 10-25lb; 2-6oz; two-piece (60/40 split). Shimano Baitrunner 6500b spooled with 65# Suffix braid. Reel has its original box and papers. I would really like to keep this as a combo for now. Pick up in Connecticut only; flexible as to meeting site. Asking $250 for the whole package.
