  1. I have a partially built Daiwa Ballistic 35-405B blank for sale. It has an aluminum Alps reel seat installed ($40 reel seat) and shrink wrap grip. Textured grip like X-flock without the X pattern. You can cut it off if you wanted to install X-flock instead. It's setup for spinning. I taped on some guides and did a few test casts otherwise it's like new. Beautiful blank and cast great. I just have one too many rods therefore want to sell this for someone to finish and fish. Reel seat distance is 29.5". It's a 13'3" rod and I've found this to be a good reel seat distance. Rod rated 4-12oz. Includes carrying bag pictured. $300 shipped contiguous USA. $280 pickup Dulles, VA.
  2. Selling brand new SLP Works round knob for the new Saltiga - $90 with shipping included.
  3. Hello all, looking to pick up a gently used 3000 size spinning reel. Prefer stradics (FK or newer) or the new spheros. Also open to some other light spinners if rated for salt. Looking for lighter weight reel for more finesse style fishing. Looking to spend under $150. let me know if you have something. I’m located near Philly but happy to work out shipping.
  4. Has anyone fished these rods? I was looking at the 9' med-light for a light surf setup (1/2-3/4oz jigs/plastics for fluke and small stripers). I'm wondering how much it weighs and what taper is really like but also overall impressions. Listed as fast but I'm concerned It might be a little too soft with that length and listed lure weights. I'm also hoping it's pretty light (around 5-6 oz) so I can bomb it all day. Thanks
  5. Selling a brand new Certate 5000D. Literally purchased it less than a full month ago from a popular US tackleshop. Reel is smooth as silk but I bought it on a whim and didn't realize how compact they actually are. It just would not fit my fishing style and its too late to return it now. Comes with everything, even Daiwa outer shipping box. Asking $480 shipped
  6. DAIWA EMBLEM SURF LIGHT 2020 - Specialist surfcasting slow oscillation reel Daiwa Emblem Surf Light 35 CW QD-P Ref. EMSL2035CWQDP This beautiful reel was launched in Europe last year 2020 and it was a total hit. Very hard to find now as they sell fast. It is a step up from the previous Emblem Surf 2018. Almost 100 grams lighter (530 grams), more refined overall, carbon composite rotor, more torque, extra seals at the handle mating points with the body, Magseal, conical spool with long cast lip, etc. If you need to reach those fish past the second bar, this is the reel! I did spool it and field tested it and it is smooth, robust and delivers the line flawlessly which translates into far casting distances. It is essentially new. I did my research and maintaining it should be no problem, it shares several of the critical components with US market Daiwa reels (antireverse clutch, bearings, etc.). This will pair very nicely with a Long Cast Rod to reel in any size fish you want. I am a reel hoarder so this one has to go. This Emblem Surf is comparable to reels that are much more expensive and I dare to call it a mini Basia. I would say is comparable to the Shimano Ultegra 14000 Ci4+, which is $340, but with better sealing. If you need the full specs on the reel you can Google "Daiwa France Emblem Surf Light" I paid close to $250 PRICE $234.99 + Shipping Quick specs: Weight 530 grams * Quick Drag System 33lb * Line recovery/crank 35" * Spool 1: 300m/0.30mm * Spool 2: 300m/0.18mm * 6+1 bearings (5 sealed) * Air rotor * Digigear II * Infinite antireverse * DS4 polycarbonate body and DS5 carbon rotor * Double oscillation line lay * Foldable aluminium handle * Anti-tangle guides on the axle and rotor to stop line catching under the spool * Manual pick-up closure * Heavy duty metal line clip with shock absorber for distance marking * Magseal.
  7. Been dealing with some back issues so looks like my kayak fishing is on hold for a bit. Looking to put together surf fishing spinning outfit. Interested in the following reels: Penn Spinfisher vi 4500 Shimano spheros 6000 daiwa bg 4000 looking for 9 ft 1-4 oz rod to pair with it. Looking to stay under $120 on the rod. Located in Philadelphia area. Let me know if you got anything that fits the bill.
  8. Looking for a left hand 300 size Shimano or Daiwa baitcaster. Let me know what's out there!
  9. Hey guys was wondering if any of you use this reel for bottom fishing? Ive used mine for swimbaits in freshwater and it's a sweet reel but never thrown more than like 3-4 oz. I have a scup/seabass trip coming up, and Im hoping itll be able to handle dropping 6-10 oz without destroying the gears. I just don't want to buy another reel if I don't have to. Thanks!
  10. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone has experience using the Daiwa TD Minnow or if anyone knows the difference between the TD and SP Minnows. The only thing I can find is that the TD is made in Japan? (Not sure if the SP is too though). Thank you!
  11. WTS Great condition Saltist. Serviced last year and returned to the box. Mechanically 10/10 no grinding or harshness. Cosmetically 8/10 small scuff on the spool. Does not impair casting at all. Spooled with I believe 40lb Daiwa samurai braid. Also have a spare handle with an aftermarket Gomexus knob. Great reel that doesn't get used. Looking to get $200 picked up or $220 shipped paypal please.
  12. Never been used Daiwa 401. 25 dollars shipped.
  13. Daiwa Ballistic LT6000D - Used once, like new. $200 shipped via UPS or FedEX Ground to the lower 48 only with payment via PayPal.
  14. For sale: Daiwa Saltist Westcoast Inshore spinning rod 8'3" medium light two piece. 50/50 split. Rated 3/16 - 1 oz. Condition is like new, used 3-4 times. The rod weighs only 4 oz! It's good for freshwater and light saltwater. It does cast up to 1 oz very well but i find it more sensitive with lures up to 1/2 oz or less. It is fast action feels more towards moderate fast. Price is $120 picked up in Brooklyn, NY. Sorry, no shipping.
  15. So... With three kids at home and toys taking over the house, my wife made a rule. "One thing in, one thing out." Unfortunately, my toys are included. I just bought a Certate LT from the BST forum, so now I'm selling my reels. I'm two up'ping my wife and selling three reels as a bundle. Please read through for conditions on them. They are not perfect. I'm the original owner and I always rinsed my reels using freshwater after fishing. You may want to apply grease/oil. I just wiped them off with Penn reel cleaner and so some pictures show "rainbow" colors. Stradic sold. Selling Ballistics as a bundle. $320 shipped for two Ballistics. I take Paypal. 1. Daiwa Ballistic EX 4000 (BLS-EX4000H) Retail $210 - Bought from Cabela's. Spooled with 40 lb SpiderWire braid. Cosmetically 8/10. There are some visible scratches (see pics). Functionally 9/10. I honestly can't say anything bad about the reel. Knocking off a point because it's not new. 2. Daiwa Ballistic LT 6000 (BLSLT6000D-C) Retail $250 - Bought new from ebay. Spooled with 40 lb Power Pro. Cosmetically 8.5/10. See pic for minor scratches. Functionally 8/10. Drag is smooth and the reel itself is smooth, but I think line roller needs oil. Last time I used it, I heard some noise, but at home, I couldn't reproduce it. Knocking off 2 points because I couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from. As I said, reeling in felt smooth and drag was smooth when I was working a big Crevalle Jack. 3. (Sold) Shimano Stradic FK (ST4000XGFK) Retail - Retail $210 - Bought from Amazon. Spooled with 30 lb Power Pro. Cosmetically 7/10. See pic for scratches. Functionally 5/10. Drag works fine and the reel itself works without a problem. However, it feels geary now. It started to feel geary two trips ago. I downgraded the reel to 'family and friends' use, but decided to throw it in the bundle. You can probably replace the main gears (if that's what's making it geary) or just use it as a spare for friends and family. I personally think that it has a lot of mileage left in it. Total retail: $670. I actually paid close to retail on all of the reels, if not more - couldn't find discounts at the time. Even on ebay, I paid close to retail. Now the pics...
  16. DAIWA SALTIGA SURF 6000 ----- $275 reduced to $250 Super lightweight and long distance casting. Need to get out to the second bar? This is the reel! Super long distance casting in one of the lightest reels out there due to the magnesium body which shimano terms "airmetal". Super smooth drag. Used to test cast distance rods a few times in a field only. Not used in the salt. Spooled with new braid (I believe it is Whiplash!) Box and paperwork included. Retail price was $489. You pay $275 picked up cash in Bergen County (Paramus area) or add $15 to cover shipping and Paypal. Will ship before noon Saturday, Jan 16 if purchased before 8AM Saturday, Jan 16.
  17. Brand new. Never spooled or fished. $370 shipped
  18. Had Ryan White from Advanced Fishing/Century/Hatteras Jacks in Rodanthe North Carolina custom build this rod with the grips, holographic striper decal and it’s 10’6 which it launches anything. Rod is in great shape and guides are great and reel seat is great! I’m located just North of Boston near the Southern NH border so if your willing to pick it up come n get it!
  19. Looking to buy a 300 size reel. Mainly fresh water for musky and swimbaits for bass. But will occasionally see use in the salt. I fish from a kayak if that makes any difference. Focusing on these two as they are right at my $200 budget. Anyone used the Curado 300k or the new lexa wn?
  20. Hello all, For you consideration are five different rods, three JDM and two domestic, for sale. I bought these rods for fishing 24-32" stripers from a large freshwater spillway nearby that always has a very heavy current going. I have determined these not to fit my needs but they are each fine rods in like-new condition. Notes: * The rods weights shown below are as I have measured myself, not manufacturer claimed. The rod actions are my personal assessment as is the sweet spot, which can be interpreted as +/- 0.25 oz. Additional pictures can be provided upon request. Prices are firm but I'll offer -10% for two rods, -20% for three rods, etc. Unless otherwise indicated, prices include shipping. Accepting Paypal, Venmo, Zelle. Ships within 24 hrs of payment. I am located in Baltimore, MD. Shimano Coltsniper XR S96H Action - Fast-MF Length - 9'6” Rod Weight - 11.02 oz Casting weight - 2.2 - 4.2 oz (3.2 oz sweet spot) Line PE - 5.0 (max) Pieces - 2 (50/50 split) Comments - For its casting range, this is an extremely strong fighting rod with great sensitivty and feel. In addition to slaying rockfish, it easily handled +25 lb blue cats in heavy current. Nice large grips give it solid feeling in the hand while still being rather lightweight for its rating. I can't say enough good things about this rod - the 96M and 96ML rods from this series remain in my quiver. I'm only selling this one because I expected the casting range to be overrated, which it wasn't. Used once, never in the salt, rod sleeve included. Price - $319 Major Craft N-One NSS-962MH Action - Med-MF Length - 9'6” Rod Weight - 9.36 oz Casting weight - 1.4 - 2.8 oz (2 oz sweet spot) Line PE - 3.0 (max) Pieces - 2 (50/50 split) Comments - Super all-arounder rod with a wide sweet spot despite its MF action and the grip is amoung the nicest feeling I've held. Major Craft rods are widely regarded as punching well above their price point. I also have two other rods from this series that remain in my quiver - selling this one because I prefer faster actions. Used once, never in the salt, rod sleeve included. Price - $219 Daiwa Lazy 90L Action - MF Length - 9'0” Rod Weight - 4.42 oz Casting weight - 0.16 - 1 oz (5/8 oz sweet spot) Line PE - 1.2 (max) Pieces - 2 (50/50 split) Comments - Ridiculously lightweight for its length yet feels quick and responsive during the cast and retrieve, not whippy. This would make an excellent panfish or walleye rod which is what I got this for but never found the motivation to chase smaller game. Used once, never in the salt, rod sleeve included. Price - $179 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Then, these are the two rods readily avaiable domestically that most folks will have heard of Temple Fork Outfitters GIS SCS 1065-2 Action - MF Length - 10'6” Rod Weight - 11.13 oz Casting weight - 2 - 6 oz (3 oz sweet spot) Line PE - 3.0 (max) Pieces - 2 (60/40 split) Comments - Great rod, popular at the canal. Happens to be my favorite rod of this bunch but selling because I have moved to 50/50 split rods for mobility's sake. Condition is 8/10. Price - $149+ship Tsunami Trophy 2 Action - M Length - 10'0” Rod Weight - 11.07 oz Casting weight - 1/2 - 2 oz (1 1/8 oz sweet spot) Line PE - 3.0 (max) Pieces - 2 (70/30 split) Comments - This is the distance casting model and is a great rod for its price point. It has a parabolic action - too much so for my preference and the 60/40 split means it must go. Used once, never in the salt. $69+ship
  21. Anyone know where to get BG 3000 spool washers?? Seem to be nowhere to be found.
  22. Fished this reel half a dozen times and never got salt on it. It has a couple small scratches on the body but is in perfect condition overall. Feels like it’s brand new. $170 shipped, Paypal only
  23. Used only once. Barely noticeable tiny scuffs. Looks great. Has 300yds 30lbs Daiwa X4 j-braid. $70 pickup Plymouth, MA. $80 shipped PayPal.
  24. I have several Daiwa Procyon 3500SH spinning reels and wondering about improvements since the SH version. The newest version looks like the AL. I have searched and read from this forum about Procyon and wondering what others think that have used these different versions?
  25. I bought a new Penn Slammer 4500, I always use power pro, never really have an issue with it, but was wondering if there is another braid that is as good or better?
