  1. Want to have a rod built for fluking from shore and occasional casting to bluefish/ striper or albie etc. Want an 8-8.5ft max length but want a 2 piece (60-40 or 70-30 split) so I can fit it in my tdi golf easier. I tried out the Century ss1025 but it felt a little too whipey/ light and not able to throw 2- 2.5oz if needed as the rod specs say... will pair with a VR50 spooled with 17lb braid. Any thoughts on having a ss1025 blank tip cut down to like 8ft or 8'2" to make it a little stiffer to impart better action on the jig? Open to to other blank suggestions. I tried the ODM Frontier x 8ft 6 but it was too heavy (action and the factory rod build weight). The ODM DNA 9ft is a bit closer in action (however too fast maybe) but its 9ft. Thoughts on cutting the butt end down by 6 inches could be an idea perhaps? I want to be able to throw 1/4oz -2.5 with the primary range of 1/2oz -2. Last I heard about the Weapon... are they all 1pc though? I just got a Star VPR (pictured below) and fished Jersey with it last week. Right weighted rod for the vr50 but action was a bit heavier than I would like. Cheers
  2. Century Stealth S1 1325 paired with a Shimano Ultegra 5500 XTB CI4+ 11 foot 1-4oz rod. Rod is in great shape. Reel functions as normal, has some scratches from regular use. I'd say 8/10 condition. Comes with box and 2 extra spools and reducers. Originally bought this setup for Carp fishing, only to realize that this type of fishing is not for me. I'm sure this would make a good surf setup. I'd like to trade this setup for a higher end reel, such as; Van Staal VS VR, Twin Power etc. Pretty much open minded to anything surf related. I could add cash $$$ for the right item. Only interested in trading as a combo, don't want to split up. Located in RI/Mass

  7. Hey guys, so I recently got into rod building this past winter. I built a ODM jigster 11’ 4-10 oz and I have been using it so far this season at the canal. I love the rod. very versatile rod but i love it especially for jigging. looking to build another rod that can do both jigging and top water. anyone have recommendations? i was looking at the Surfmachine elite 11’ 2-8 oz or a black hole just for jigging. I have attached some pictures of my jigster below.
  8. Looking to trade my 12’ Century Surf Machine Elite 2-8 for the 11’3 1-6 Surf Machine Elite. Rod is in excellent condition, purchased this spring with factory layout/titanium torzite guides. Changed the shrink tube grip to Paco style grip and extended distance from butt to reel seat to 25” as I felt the factory placement was simply too choked down for a 12’ rod and my height/arm length. Reason for trade is simply too much overlap with my other rods in terms of the weight range and need something to throw lighter plugs more efficiently.
  9. Want to sell 2 conventional set ups. Century slingshot 1327 11' 2-5oz with Akois 666 SCM W Sport cast. Rod has Fuji seat and Eye set up 24 3/4" to the bottom of the seat.$450.00 Lamiglas LSB 1322m 11' 3-8oz Made by Dan Grulke. Rod has Fuji seat and eye set up 24 1/2" to the bottom of the seat. With matching Orange ABU Ambassadaur 6500 C3 CT mag-elite Sweden made.$350.00 Will ship if buyer pays shipping. Haven't shipped a rod in a while but would think should be around $30.00 or so.
  10. Want to buy a Century Slingshot spinning rod shipped to GA (30360). Thanks.
  11. WTS my backup new Custom Century Stealth S-2 1326 11’ - 2-5oz Rod built by Chris Abut. It was wrapped with Fuji’s best Torzite guides. The rod is super light and can handle big fish in big current. It’s a parabolic rod that takes less energy to cast compared to the Slingshot series. $485 Stella 3000 Reel 9.5 out of 10. It includes everything that originally came with. $375 I would consider trade for other quality fishing products.
  12. Century Kevlar Nor’easter 11ft 1-5 KNE 1326 $400 + shipping located CT
  13. Does anyone have any experience with both of these rods? I'm looking for a rod for next year for all ranges at the canal. If anyone has any input, I'd appreciate it.
  14. I just took delivery of a new rod, on a Century blank, and I'd like to hear from other anglers using it for plugging. To start the thread going, I have some preliminary comments. The rod in question is in the SlingShot lineup, two pieces, rated 2-5 oz. It is not one of Century's highest-end products, baked in an autoclave and sprayed with unobtanium by dancing virgins. First disclaimer. I did not pay list price for the Century 1327 blank. Ryan White was keen to have Al Goldberg build on a Century blank, to see what he thought of it, and he was kind enough to encourage me with a discount. List (go advancedfishing-usa dot, etc.) Al did build on it. When I find the cable to connect the Canon point and shoot camera to the computer, I'll post pictures. It's pretty as all get-out, with an abalone wrap and metallic blue wraps on the guides. I prefer to cast a tin, plug or fly to fishing bait. In the 2-4 oz weight range covering most larger plugs and tins live, the best rods I own for distance casting are as follows. 1) BreakAway LDFS, 12'3", which dates back to the years when they were building on AllStar blanks. This is a spinning rod, and the 2-5 oz rating is pretty accurate (an accurate rating is a rare thing in a factory rod.) A twelve foot rod is a bit awkward in some places. I wish I'd bought the 11'9" rod that was next to it on the closeout shelf. Materials technology has advanced, too. 2) Lamiglas 1322, built by Al Goldberg as a conventional rod. A fine casting rod, but my right hand hasn't entirely recovered from surgery and thumb control is erratic. Rehab continues in the gym. I like the 1322 at 2-4 oz., not at five. These are my standards for comparison. So I took the SS 1327 to Al, who built it with nine guides and a tip. Leg and knee issues have cost me my spring season, but I'm good to go again. No fish on it yet, just test casts with a range of weights and payloads. A) The blank's rating is off, IMHO. I was surprised by how easily and well it loads and casts with one ounce, though it'd be silly to buy this blank for that weight. At least in a spinning configuration, this rod will work with one ounce Bombers and such. The optimal range, again IMHO, is one and a half ounces through four, sweet spot is two and a half to three and a half. Get to five ounces and you're lobbing. YMMV. I prefer blanks that let me load the rod aggressively. B) Within its' weight range, the rod is excellent, especially with plugs. A stiffer rod would add a few yards to a cast with a tin. I have a suspicion that if I had a chance to match the 1327 with an identically configured 1328, the 1327 would fish plugs more easily, the 1328 would add those yards with a tin. You pay your money, you take your choice. C) The tip is soft enough to work a pencil, in that preferred weight range of 1.5 to 4 oz. D) There's enough give in the tip to make it hard to lose a fish by ripping its' lip off. I expect (not having proved it yet) that this is a good fish-fighting stick. E) Not a pendulum-casting blank, really, this rod isn't stiff enough to justify the effort. This is a high-end rod for overhead casting, though there is some hip rotation in my casting when loading the rod aggressively with a tin or diamond. F) There isn't enough in the tip for a strong hookset with a plug at distance. That's the flip side of having a tip soft enough to fight a fish, and work a plug nicely. This might be a problem at the CCC, and comment from anyone who has used it there is solicited. Second disclaimer. I fish open sand beaches, for the most part, and don't climb on jetties or riprap any more. If I DID do that, I'd bring my Lami 120-1M (another Goldberg), because I suspect it's more resistant to impact damage if you took a fall. I will ask Ryan to comment on this, but I don't think this is a good blank for jetty hopping. Neither do I like to wade, though I'll do it in a back bay area. If your habits differ, you may have a different opinion. I'd like to hear from people who fish rods on this blank, or have built on it. Disagreements cheerfully accepted.
  15. I'm looking for an excellent condition Century SS1145. I have cash or a few items laying around for partial trade towards the rod. I have: Saragossa 5000SW Van Staal VM150 Spheros 5000SW Spheros 6000SW St. Croix Mojo Spinning Surf 10'6" 1-4oz (used once) Like new
  16. Not exactly looking to get rid of a Van Staal but I would like to see if there is possibly someone out there that might have a VS200 or 2 that is looking to get/trade for a vs150 (as you can obviously see). I bought this reel new ($739) w/power knob ($59) over the winter and have used it maybe 10x and feel as though maybe I should have went a size up considering how versatile I like my gear to be. We can discuss details further if anyone is interested. I would also consider trading along with cash for a zeebaas or stella. Thanks everyone! ****SPOOLED 2 DAYS AGO WITH 250YDS/40LB SPIDERWIRE INVISIBRAID****

  20. WTS VS 150 Black, Low Serial # comes with 2 spools. Reel has internal counterweight and was last serviced before start of 2017 season. Then used for the month of May and pretty much laid to rest since. Reel foot has been upgraded to new heavier, improved version by Van Staal in 2015. Comes with Bag but not box...unfortunately that was lost during a move. The reel has a blemish on bottom of foot from sitting in rod vault...aside from that its fine and ready to go. $500 shipped paypal. Thanks for looking!
  21. Century SurfMachine Surf Rod 11' 3" 2 piece 50/50 split, 1-6 oz lure,, Moderate/Fast action Used less than a dozen times, little reluctant to sell but, casting this out there to try and justify gearing up more for Kayak fishing, awesome rod in great condition.

  23. Looking for a lightweight, 8' rod for the surf. Particularly looking for the Century Sling Shot SS965C. Plan to toss light jigs and mirrolures for trout/drum/flounder.
  24. Testing the water to see what's out there. I am looking for a Century surf rod set up for a conventional reel. The rod will be used for plugging so I'm looking for something around 10'6" rated 1-4oz. If you have one you are willing to part ways with please let me know. Thanks
  25. Hi, This is a Custom built on the Century Sling Shot SS1267. This is 2 pc. 10'6" 2-5 oz. This has been test casted at one outing with a bunker spoon and it casts a mile. My shoulder is not cooperating so back to bait for me Silver/Red and it has name "Just Pat" on it. 464.00 is new off the shelf price, so 375.00 paypal. (Of course this was built from the blank 341.00 plus Fuji components plus labor) Thanks for looking, Pat
