  1. Been working on my technique a lot lately but still can't always get it where I need it. Soo i've decided ill either get a longcast (probably ssvi 65/7500 or maybe a ULTEGRA XTC), or an 11ft casting rod for one of my conventional reels. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with both and how distance compares. How would the level wind affect distance. Should i use the one without the LW. Would prob end up using mono on the conventional reel at least to start so how will that change things. I think i'm inclined to get a longcast reel because i think id be more willing to wade in which would give me a good extra bit of distance and maybe a cheep casting rod cause i think i want to learn. But any thoughts welcome.
  2. Hello all, looking to purchase a new reel for my 10 foot Lamiglas surfrod. I will predominantly use it off the beach. Looking at either a Penn Spinfisher Longcast (5500 or 6500), Regular Spinfisher (5500 or 6500) or a Slammer III (5500 or 6500). Thoughts?
  3. Conflict 2 8000 long cast on Woot for 100 bucks.
  4. In excellent condition. Warranty replacement. Rarely used. Local pick up available. $230 Part of Shimano long cast setup when paired with Ultlrega CI4+ 5500 reel also available for sale
  5. I bought these at the end of last season from Tackle Direct. Ultegra- $290 shipped: I bought a Votex knob to replace the joke OEM knob on the Ultegra and used it once last winter, and three times this year. It is indeed, the farthest- casting spinning reel I have ever used. It was never dunked, but it did get splashed a lot 4 weeks ago. I opened up the sideplate and did not see water intrusion. The main spool has 20# white Sufix 832, one has new, unfished / uncast green Sufix 30 or 40# Spectra, and the third spool remains unmolested. There is one faint scratch on the reel stem from transport in my Rod Vault (5th pic). Other than that, this super-lightweight carbon fiber hybrid reel could pass as new. Saragosa- $240 shipped: Spooled up with new unfished / uncast yellow 30# Spiderwire Stealth, I mounted it on a few rods and never got a chance to use it. All reels come as shown with boxes, spool shims, and papers. Why am I selling these? Despite how smooth, light, and sexy these are, I decided they don't really fit my current fishing style. However, because of how smooth, light, and sexy these are, I'll just as easily keep them rather than get low-balled like crazy . Thanks for lookin'! Buy 'em both for $515 shipped.
