  1. Hi All, I have been reading and learning from SOL for years, first time posting. I fish in both the NE (most of my life) and more recently the SE too. I just decided to pickup a Visser #4 reel, truthfully did it blind based on reviews (hopefully i like it). I do fish from both boat and shore in the SE and and mostly focused on inshore, so Snook, Redfish, Tarpon Jacks. Sometimes i take a boat nearshore which can mean Mahi, Grouper, Snapper blackfin tuna etc. Im trying to use the visser for an all around high end type setup that I can take on a friends boat but also use from shore. What rod pairing would you recommend? I have been eyeballing Century The Weapon/The Weapon jr, and also Black hole rods. I will use this rod from small boats but also from shore, so I dont want it to exceed 7 1/2 ft. Im not against 2 piece rods for convenience of throwing them in the car, but I would like the rod to be able to throw a range of lures from light bucktails up to 2.5-3oz reasonably well. For me, this is a luxe setup so im willing to spend to get it right. I greatly appreciate your thoughts and if I am on the right track in terms of sizing/blank brands. Thanks
  2. I want sell century slingshot 11' 50/50 2/5oz Titanium guides preferable pickup I ask $400 Is like new is my backup rod Or we can do deal for plugs
  3. I got this brainstorm and I think it will be reality unless one of you knowledgeable folks steer me straight. I want another 7ft rod, but 2 pc. My current trusty rod is a old TideMaster 7' MHF. So I went looking at the Century site and I see the Weapon Jr 2 pc options, they have a 7' unit. The factory rods have them funny grips; I'm old fashioned and like my cork ring grips, so my thoughts are to have one done up as such. Anyone see any flaws in my thinking? I know the cork is expensive, and not trendy, but I always come back to it for some reason and I don't see that changing if I buy another rod with grip other than cork.
  4. Recently I broke a 1-6 11' ODM genesis I built, it was a great rod but I'm looking for better and the unimpressive 1.5 year lifespan left a bitter taste in my mouth with ODM. I'm strongly considering a CTS vapor trail but I'd like to hear how it stacks up against other top brands. The durability of a Lamiglas is also appealing but I've never liked the floppier action they have. Anyone experienced with these brands have any advice?
  5. After fishing both the stock GSB10MS (1 piece) and GSB101MS (2 piece) the past few years I'm looking to order a 1 piece blank for a custom rod. My local rod builder said the quality of GSBs has gone downhill in recent years and that I should check ODM and Century. Century intrigues me the most but it seems all of their blanks are 2 piece. ODM has 2 options for 1 piece blanks - the Evolution & Nex1. The rod will be paired with a VSX200, 1-5oz weight range is ideal, and durability is key as it will face abuse on the rocks. I love the parabolic bend on the GSB so am looking for a similar taper. Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
  6. I was thinking that shipping would be a big problem for non-travel rods, but this one is a two piece and it looks like shipping's not terrible. It will cost $30-45 for shipping, so there's little room to negotiate on the price. I'm the first owner and used the rod only 2-3 times. Not sure if anyone's been following by posts, but that's the trend. I'm selling things that only got used 1-3 times in the last two years. It's a Century Kevlar Nor'Easter KNE1086 C. I paid $480 originally and I'm asking for $290 shipped. It's a beautiful rod, but too much rod for the type of fishing I do these days. Has minor wear and tear. Please take close look at the pictures. I'll ship it in a sturdy TD tube.

  9. Looking to buy a 9’6 slingshot in good condition. Currently at Rutgers in NJ so preferably somewhere in state.
  10. A buddy liked mine so much he wants one for himself! Customs builds are fine as long as its set up for A VSB150, Shimano 6K series reel or similar. Preferably one in good condition and shipping is a must, I'm west coast in Northern California. I also have a Edge Surf 1165-2 that I can offer as partial trade if interested, Thanks.

I was thinking a 200 is perfect for all 3 but I've been told I need a 250 for the 11 n 10.6 .. how true is this?? Opions please .. hope there isn't such thing as to many posts
  12. As the title states, looking for a rod between 9’6-10’6. My main rods were all blown apart by my tonneau cover breaking free and blowing them up in the rack the other night. My preference is the odm NXE-105 but I’d go as long as the NXE-116 for the right deal. Can pick up in the philly, Delaware, jersey areas. Let me know what ya got - tight lines
  13. Selling a rod that I don't want to, but need to. Nothing wrong with the rod. It was used 3 or 4 times. I imagine it's going to be super expensive to ship. I'll sell it for $300 shipped (Paid $480 when I bought it originally). I am willing to trade with: A lefty (Left retrieve) boat reel (Tern 500, Torium 20, Saltist 40) A righty (Right retrieve) baitcaster (TranX 400A) Calstar 800H (With cash on top from me, depending on the condition)
  14. Wts 9’6 1145 slingshot for $360 if your willing to pick up. Rod is in excellent condition. I’m located north shore, Ma.
  15. Alright, I’m going to try and move up to a great rod instead of trying all the mid levels. I am looking to purchase a Century slingshot 1265. Anyone have one that they might be looking to part with? I am in 01940. Shipping or pick up welcome. Thank you.

  17. Want to trade my weapon jr 7'10 for the weapon 7'10 would like to stay local notooking to ship thanks in advance
  18. After looking around online and throughout the site I still have not been able to form a clear answer. For anyone who has experience with both of these rods, what are some significant differences? Is there anything one does significantly better than the other? Both rods are designed for different reasons, but looking at how some people use them added to my confusion. Which of these rods would you personally recommend for fishing plugs up to 2oz and similar buck tails and metals?
  19. Currently out of the country for a few months and have a friend buliding me one of the 8'6" two piece century weapons. Those of you who have one, or have seen a friends, what reels did y'all pair them with and how did they balance out? 90 pecent of it's life it will have a 2 oz bucktail tied on to it to throw at visible cobia so i'm not concerned with being able to eek out every single yard on a cast. Nor am i super concerned about needing hundreds upon hundreds of yards of high test braid. Just looking for what worked for you weight/balance/feel wise and what you were using it for.. I hate to ask questions like this as I'd typically buy, sell, and trade my way around until i found what I liked. Unfortunately that's not an option and i would like to come to a top three pics by the time I get home so i can already have some options delivered to the house by mid summer.
  20. Hello all, I am sure this topic has been brought up a lot, I apologize in advance. I have two custom builds that I love, a LamiGSB 9’6” and a Bushido 8’6” The Lani I use for relying and bigger plugs.. the tips isn’t really sensitive so it’s not great for SPs, Bombers, Needles etc. I had the Bushido built to handle the nights when I’m throwing the smaller stuff... I am looking for something a little bigger in 10’-11’ range, I would like it sensitive enough to toss some smaller plugs at times but be able to handle the occasional bigger plugs or rigged eels. I mainly fish RI and a Southern Ma. This bigger rod would be specifically for BI and if I have a chance Montauk this year... Thank you for any input and recommendations. I will be pairing a VSX250 or 275 with this as well. Tight lines!
  21. Trade ZX22/20 rotor and ZX22 Spool, both are like mint. The spool doesn't have the ZX22 label but I compared the diameter and size next to my 1st gen ZX22 spool and it's exactly the same size. I'm looking to trade for ODM or Century 10'-11' rod, 3/4-4oz.
  22. Sold my Century C3LD here last year. Now its my Century TTLD. I used both rods together TTLD for 2-5oz work. C3 for heavy work, 5-10. Rod is 13' long. Does not have a reducer. Was not designed to use one. Mark1 generation. Bought when it was first released. This was a big deal as most beach rods were 25-30mm diameter then. This debuted at 19mm. Much slimmer but with similar power of the fat version rods. Even today, its still a slim rod compared to newer ones. Awesome slim rod (hence low diameter name) for 2-5oz and bait. Easily does powerful pendulum casts with bait. Really put baits far out. Basic casting styles will handle up to 7nbait, still puts bait extremely far out. Has nice rod action. Best description is heavy power, moderately fast but not too fast. Lightning quick tip recovery like all Century UK beach rods. Its a good fishing tip basically, not too stiff. Itll handle very big fish and wont fold over. Ive done big rays in the summertime on it that weighed up to 80lbs. Has normal usage marks but no crazy stuff. Some of the shrink tubing on handle got torn off when i was putting stuff away for the season. You can replace or electrical tape it for simple fix (then use tape as a ruler marker) I took pic of lifted piece. No damage to butt. Regardless this LD rod is extremely well built as all century UK rods. Durable as heck. Apparently a quick search indicates locally US shops sell similar range models at $800+ in shops. And no stock. Wow... Im selling $380 shipped fedex. $350 local in NYC. Edit. Added pics Note please do not go by century website pic. That is a mk2 model which is also discontinued. Just added for its spec. Mk1 uses fuji bhng guides. Also it has 2 coasters cause the sliding seat sucks and long removed.
  23. I'm looking for a Century Slingshot SS1145 9'6" in very good condition. Meet in NJ, not willing to buy unseen.
  24. 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!
  25. Hey SOL, As the title states, I am looking for a Century Weapon Jr for the primary purpose of tog jigging (1-2 oz jigs) with secondary use as a kayak rod/sod bank wading. From what I've read, the Weapon Jr Mag Taper would be the most suitable for my intended purpose, although I haven't personally held these rods in hand so your input and suggestions would be appreciated. I would prefer the rod to be between 7'2" to 7'6". Just wanted to see if anyone had one for sale that would fit the bill before I go the custom route. Also, if interested in a trade, I have 3 NRX Inshores to offer, you can choose which one you'd like: -NRX 803S XMR -NRX 843S MR -NRX 883S MR I'm Southern NJ and would prefer a local transaction if possible. Thanks, Cy
