  1. Hello, I joined the club of Kayak anglers a few months ago. I fish in Mauritius, inside and outside lagoon, where the weather allows us to fish all year round I got a UltraLight Rod and Shimano Stradic FL 3000 which quickly become my main Rod. It's a bit small, but so light that It's super confortable to fish with all day long. However it's small when I cross the reef. I also have a Spinfisher 3500 on a medium heavy rod. I find it super heavy. Especially comparing it to other reels on the same size (daiwa BG RR 4000, A Stradic FL4000 for exemple). And even the drag is less than the Daiwa and Shimano. If i was fishing standing on a boat maybe it'd be better, but sitting in this kayak I don't find it great. Do you find the weight of this reel justified? I'm considering selling it but I never caught anything huge on it. (Biggest yet was a small 9lbs tuna on the UL set up) Thanks!
  2. Purchased new from amazon on 11/02/17. Butt-cap has been removed for rod holder, used once and decided not to keep it. $130. Willing to ship at your expense.
  3. Looking for used SS stubby needles - heavy (red eye) Hooks can be crap. Need asap. Many needed.
  4. I'm looking to get a heavy snook rod. I fish inlets and throw flair hawks and heavy swimbaits most of the time. Needs to be 8' with enough backbone to turn the head of a big snook. I've looked at the Stellar Lite SG1525FT80 and the Tidemaster TIS80HF, but I'm not sure if I want to push the budget that much for the tidemaster. Is it that much better? One more thing, it needs a tip soft enough to throw occasional live baits. But, before that, it needs to throw the artificials because that's what I use 90% of the time. I've also considered the Falcon Lowrider Salt LSS-8XH and the Teramar TMSX80XH, if anyone has any opinions on them as well. Edit: Does anyone know how the backbone is on the SG1525FT80 compared to the SG1530S80? Both stellar lites, but one is fast taper. Thank you.
