  1. Chunking 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.
  2. Shimano Spheros SW10000 NIB. Purchased as a backup, put some used line on it (Fireline Original 30lb, flipped so unused portion is on the outside), and never used it. Only slightly bigger than a 6000/8000 size. $140 shipped PP Shimano Symetre 1000FL NIB. Found a good deal on a Stradic and never used this. $80 shipped PP Can post pics if anyone is interested.
  3. Brand new never used. Retails for $299.99. This is a great all around canal stick for a good price. Rating of 3-6 is accurate. Does 6 oz jigs, shads and loaded magic swimmers no problem. Sweet spot around 4. Does well with 3 oz pencils. Can throw sp minnows just fine but not ideal for light swimmers. My brother uses it as a primary jig stick and he is very happy. Selling for $200 picked up. SE MA, can meet within reason. Also willing to listen to trades for kayak stuff.
  4. As title says, looking for a Shimano Blackmoon, or another similar tackle backpack in large sizes. Hoping to hold 5 Plano trays, which I don't even think the Blackmoon does. Retail is $149 for the Blackmoon, and I'm looking to bring that down a fair bit by purchasing used. Let me know if you have one for sale, and make me an offer
  5. Brand new in box with extra spool, shims, schematics and line capacity adjusters. retails for $189.99. Selling for $120 picked up, $135 shipped. In SE mass, willing to meet within reason. Also willing to listen to trade offers for kayak stuff.
  6. Hello to all, I am a new member this is my first post looking for some reel advice. I have a shimano saragosa 8k I’ve been swapping between a chunking surf rod and fluke jigging rod I just acquired a daiwa saltist 8k have not much experience with daiwa spinning reels. Wondering if anyone had some knowledge if one would perform better than the other at said tasks ? Thanks in advance and appreciate everyone and everything this sight has to offer!
  7. Hello, first post here so let me know if I'm doing anything stupid. The felt drag in my Shimano Solstace 4000 Front Drag gave out and I would like to replace it with a carbontex drag system. I can only get a hold of this through Mike's Reel Repair, and he doesn't seem to have anything for the Solstace because it has been discontinued. Is there any other reel that has identical drag? The Stradic maybe? Any help is appreciated.
  8. Anyone have a power handle they'd recommend for a Calcutta 250? I know jigging world has one but just seeing what else is out there. I see a bunch listed all over the internet just wanted to see if anyone on this page has had a good experience with other brands. Thanks in advance.
  9. I was just watching a video and saw this reel. I was intrigued because I have been fishing Shimano reels for a long time and had never heard of or seen this reel. I am guessing it is some sort of JDM, but to be quite honest I have no idea. Has anyone ever heard of them or better yet seen or fished one? It sort of looks similar to a Saragosa...
  10. Brand new. Never fished. Spooled with 20lb jbraid. Jigging world power handle installed. Boxnand original handle included. $280 local pickup Queens/Nassau $294 shipped priority
  11. Folks, I'm new to saltwater fishing and I'm looking to put together a decent inshore combo. I picked up the rod this weekend, not sure if it was a good choice or not but I was looking for a 2 piece rod and I figured I can't go wrong with St. Croix. As far as the reel goes, here are the options I'm looking at. I appreciate your comments and input on both rod and reel. I will be mostly fishing off the pier and jetty. Right now I'm leaning towards stradic FK mostly due to light weight. Thanks again!!! Stradic C5000XGFK $178 Stradic SW 5000XG. $233 Saragosa SRG5000SW $228 Saragosa 6000SW $239 (it weights about the same as 5000 gosa) Sustain CS5000XG FI $277 Twinpower SW5000HG (preowned under $300)

  19. I just recieved an email from Otto's in AUS that was kind of upsetting.. "Unfortunately, Shimano Australia have implemented new terms and conditions (for) the Australian Market, which prevents us selling Shimano products internationally as of the 1st of March 2019." I'm not sure if this will impact purchases from other parts of the world, but I'm sure they are implementing similar changes worldwide... It has always pissed me off that the EXACT SAME reel sold in the USA for $1100 can be purchased from Australia for about $700.. such a huge price difference for identical model reels has always just seemed like shimano wants to f@$k the American anglers as hard as they can.. This latest move seems to really spell out their intentions and serves no purpose that I can see other than squeezing more $ from those of us purchasing their reels stateside.... So... if your on the fence about buying one, otto's is basically running a fire sale until the March 1st deadline.. buy them up while you can..
  20. Disregard Listing was incorrectly put in this forum My apologies
  21. I have a brand new stella 4k up for sale or trade, looking to get 600 shipped or trade for a VSB150 (bailed version) local pickup available in RI.
  22. For sale. Never fished. Spooled with 20lb jbraid. Includes handle for 4000 and 5000 which is much more comfortable. $220 shipped
  23. Hey all, I'm looking into getting a new surf reel. I've mostly narrowed it down to the Saragosa and the Slammer. I've always been a Penn guy, but I ordered a Battle 2 and it had significant play in the bail, so I'm now willing to consider Shimano. I'm leaning towards the Saragosa due to the numerous positive reviews, but I'm worried about the wobble issue. I'm thinking about an 8000 to be paired with an 11' mojo, or occasionally my 9' mojo. TL;DR - how common is the wobble? If I order new from TackleDirect or Bass Pro, am I likely to get a perfectly functioning reel, or is there a good chance it's going to need to be returned? Thanks!
  24. Selling 2 shimano reels. The first is a personal favorite of mine, but I have multiple side I'm selling one, a shimano 200e7 curado. 7:1 gear ratio, right handed, spooled with 40 lb white ardent gliss braid, has the originalbox and papers, comes with reel grips on it already and it has upgraded spool bearings. Reel is in excellent shape, it has only minor wear on the outside (see pics), feels great and fishes well. Looking for $135 shipped. The second reel is a shimano nasci c3000 spinning reel. Reel was used for this past summer in freshwater. It is in good shape with only light wear as shown in the picture. It sounds like it has a bit noisy of a bearing but otherwise is fully functioning. Looking for $60 shipped.

Has some scuff/scratch on the outside lower part of the spool that is pictured, otherwise great shape Daiwa BG15 - $65 Shipped, in great shape Shimano Sahara 2500FD - $45 Shipped, has a ding in the spool lip, shown in picture Penn 450SSG - $55 Shipped, has scratch on spool lip, shown in picture
