  1. So my dad made a trip to his township's recycling center to dispose of some construction debris and he came across an old school spinning rod/reel. He knows I'm now a fishaholic so he rescues it and takes it home. When I saw him he gifted it to me. There was a few decades old worth of dust/grime on it and the reel was seized up. My reaction was lukewarm at best and a little snooty at worst..."I don't have the time for this" would summarize it best. I wasn't crazy about it at first but after some thought, I realized I've become everything I hated. These days almost everything is throw away disposable chi-com garbage. So I decided to salvage it. I put in some elbow grease to clean up the rod. I tore down the reel from top to bottom. It was seized up due to the dried up original grease. No saltwater intrusion. I was amazed at how robust and solid this reel was built. Its a tank. After grease+assembly it works perfectly. This would make the perfect bait rod for my wife and son and should outlast anything Wal-Mart has to offer. My plan is to take them fishing at a popular moco spot for when the blues show up in numbers. If you see us along with this beast say "hello!" Does anyone have any idea how old this setup is? How about recommendations for what I should spool it with? I was thinking 30lb mono. Don't forget to say hello. "

  7. I have an old 9'-1.5" Fenwick Feralite. It was wrapped many years ago w/Fuji guides (ones with a whiteish/green shock ring), the ferrule also got wrapped - for why I can't remember - anyway: I just cleaned-up the wraps & coated them w/Threadmaster One & they look fine & I plan to repaint the rod w/as close to original red/brown & use it. So Is there any way to determine what reels, lines, etc. it should take ??? Thanks ...
