  2. I’ve been bit by the conventional bug. I am longing for simpler times. Whaddayah got stashed away? I’m looking for something one piece, ready to fish, or may consider a blank or a rebuildable. This will be for shore bait fishing only. I’ll be tossing clam, cut mackerel and bunker, etc. I have a pair of 2 piece rods, one 10’ and a 12’, so I’m really looking for that 11ish’ 1 piece that you can live without. Pickup in or near 19053, willing to meet or travel. SEPA, central NJ a plus. Thanks.
  3. Need a chunking stick. Would also be interested in a custom built on the 1442mh or 1502mh blank. Located in Hull MA thx
  4. I have a Seigler SGN Lefty in new condition with box, receipt, rod clamp. No scratches and barely used. I purchased it several months ago for togging and loaded it with 30# super slick. I would be open to trades for a lefty Avet SXJ g2 plus a little cash coming my way, or a nautilus NVG 6/7 with cash coming your way. Otherwise thinking $270 for the reel without trade. It saves the purchaser $100 if you were to buy a new sgn and load it with line. Preference of person to person transaction, if not buyer responsible for shipping/fees. Thanks!
  5. I'm planning to buy 17lb. Tritanium Plus for chunking from the shore. I'll put the line on conventional reels (Penn 525s, Squall, etc.). I plan to use a shock leader, so I'm not too worried about fish being able to see the line. Amazon has Tritanium in (1) clear, (2) chartreuse, and (3) dark green. Do the different colors behave any differently? I'm thinking abrasion resistance, suppleness, line memory, etc. I'm trying to figure out if I pick only on visual preference, or if there are other variables in play.
  6. $50 PICKED UP. Providence RI. 10' 4-8 oz conventional Ocean Master. Lightly used. Cosmetically 9/10. Some hook rash on first guide. Perfect working order. 60/40 split (2pc) Reel not included! Happy Holidays!
  7. I'm booked to go on Yakee Capts Pulley Ridge LITE trip next year and I'll be going with my buddy, who doesn't have any boat tackle. Unfortunately, they don't rent gear for this particular trip. My buddy is a lefty, so I'm looking to get a used reel that he can use and I have two kids who are lefties as well, so I figure they can use it when they are old enough. Recommended reel for the trip: Shimano Trinidad 20 or 30 Shimano Torium 20 or 30 Shimano Talica II 16 Daiwa Saltist 40 50 lb braid Looking for open face (No levelwind). Picture with description of the condition would be great. I will consider other similar reels as well, as long as it's under my budget. Thanks in advance!

  12. Hi All, I have looked at expanding my tackle universe to include a conventional casting outfit, and am looking at a reel like the Calcutta 200D (actually the 201D, because I run that way.) I hope to use it for not too heavy plugging, bucktailing, jigging Avas and maybe fluking. Does anyone have a rod they'd pair with a reel like this? Given a choice I'd opt for something not too pricey. The reel alone will be the most expensive single piece of gear I've ever bought that I couldn't sit in. Thanks! (This is my first post here. I'm a Striper Surf refugee.)
  13. Shimano Torium 16 HG star drag conventional reel Took out to the boat ONCE but never fished on it. Consider the reel is new. There is a tiny smudge on the reel from storing on the rod rack. Barely noticeable. Comes with a mounting bracket. Spooled with 40lb braided line. No Original box. I am willing to trade for Torium 14HG. $180 Shipped along the East Coast, add $10 elsewhere.
  14. Recently got back into fishing and a good friend gave me an old Shimano Triton TLD 10 NIB. I’ve just started my journey as a NY surfcaster and I’ve always been a spinning reel guy but I am eager to give conventional a try. Not sure what year this reel is from but probably late 80s-or early 90s. Manufacturer’s manual describes it as lever drag reel for live bait, casting and light trolling. I’d love to try and give all of them a shot. Ideally I’d like to use this reel for a party boat/charter setup but not sure if that’s a good idea. I am open to all suggestions. I’ll be targeting fish in the Northeast. Tell me all about this reel because there’s very little information about this reel online. And if it’s not too much trouble, I’d love suggestions for rods for the scenarios like live bait, light trolling or casting from shore or boat. Since this is my first conventional setup I’d prefer to keep rods under $100. Thanks SOL
  15. Looking to sell a NEARLY brand new Avet SX G2 5.3 MC LEFT HAND. Purchased over the summer and fished literally once about 3 casts. Decided I am gonna stick to low profiles for now. Spooled with 40 lb braid w/ Mono topshot; split is roughly 85/15 - 90/10. Comes with box, papers, extra hardware included with new Avet reels. Asking $265 shipped to lower 48. IMG_0718.tiff
  16. 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.
  17. Hi. I am looking to purchase a 9’ or 10’ rod, as well as an acceptable surfcasting conventional reel, for under $200. I mostly fish small to medium-sized stripers and bluefish. I obviously don’t need the best of the best, but the reel should last and be a decent caster. Any suggestions?
  18. Have a few old Murats and looking for an idea of the value range. 12'2pc conventional and a few spinners both honey and black all in pretty good shape with a few busted guides on some. Thank You, Bob
  19. 70/ 30 split model # MSC110MHMF2. 15-30 LB. 3-8 oz. I used it a couple times but preferred spinning reel over conventional. This rod is nearly weightless( real talk) no BS. Im asking $150 picked up on long island. I can send more pics if needed. Thanks for your consideration guys.

  22. hi what reel is this
  23. Bought this rod and reel over the winter with cabin fever in anticipation for warmer weather. Threw a few bloodworms with it and that was it, it wasn’t the only winter purchase and just don't have much of a need for it and could use the money to put towards a work truck. $450 OBO
  24. I like to Fluke from Inlets & Jetties. I’m usually slinging 2-4 oz sinkers dragging strip bait. I like a long rod and go for distance. I recently purchased a Penn Battalion 11’ 2-6 oz rod and like it. I recently tested my 3 best casting reels over 2 fish outings. Here’s my thoughts. Ambassaduer 6500CS Mag Elite (levelwind) with 30lb PowerPro. Easily my best caster but with 3oz sinker and pulling against a moving tide you really have to crank down drag to stop from slipping. Another con is the mag slider is right where I palm the reel and I’m always moving it inadvertently. Old Penn 525GS (not mag) with 2 of 4 centrifugal brakes on. 50 lb PowerPro. Casts second best and although level winding with finger does get easier over time it becomes a pain and my fingers get waterlogged and wrinkled. This reel would be my top choice if I was soaking baits not hour after hour casting and retrieving. Daiwa Lexa 400 (original model) 50lb PowerPro. Smooth, fast ratio and large power handle and is a dream to cast and retrieve all day. Only Con I feel is the disengaging levelwind. If you cast when the levelwind is to one side and not in the middle you can really feel and hear the line ripping across the spool. I wish they would make a model with non disengaging levelwind. So so I guess my perfect reel would be something like a Lexa 400 with a non disengaging level wind. Does one exist ?
  25. I'm looking to enter the dark side and get a conventional setup for surf fishing from the beach. I read about magnetic brakes and windlevels being convenient but effects distance. Cabela mentioned Abu garcia c3 striper and Penn Rival I've been fishing for years but no nothing about a conventional reel. I'm looking first for maximum distance for casting 3-8 plus bait. I like the idea of the magnetic break and windlevel but dont know. I would like to keep it under 200 if possible. any advice is much appreciated.
