  1. Looking for a long-spool lightweight (16oz) surf/spinning reel for under $300. The Shimano Ultegra 5500 ci4 and the Shimano Surf Leader ci4 seem to be the only ones that fit my criteria. Matter of fact, I already have an Ultegra but plan to sell it as it is an older model and I want to upgrade. Wanted to look at more options to see what else is available Penn surfblaster, battle long cast, spinfisher long cast Shimano activecast, super aero, bullseye, kisu special, fliegen Daiwa crosscast, powersurf, longbeam, windcast, windsurf, finesurf, bascia okuma 8k are all either too heavy or too pricey
  2. Hey yall, Im looking for a 13'-14' rod asap. Can't cast far enough at the dam I fish with my 12' rod and everyone else recommended me with a longer rod. I was looking at the "Shimano SURF GAZER 13'3" rod which goe for around $300. I would like any recommendations yall have for under $350. Thanks -13'-14' rod -Not too whippy (mod/mod-fast/fast preferred) -Lightweight (under 16-18oz) -Will be throwing 3-4 oz weights and flukes -Paring with 5500 ultegra ci4
  3. 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.
  4. Hello all, looking to purchase a new reel for my 10 foot Lamiglas surfrod. I will predominantly use it off the beach. Looking at either a Penn Spinfisher Longcast (5500 or 6500), Regular Spinfisher (5500 or 6500) or a Slammer III (5500 or 6500). Thoughts?
  5. Conflict 2 8000 long cast on Woot for 100 bucks.
  6. In excellent condition. Warranty replacement. Rarely used. Local pick up available. $230 Part of Shimano long cast setup when paired with Ultlrega CI4+ 5500 reel also available for sale http://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/716139-wts-shimano-ultrega-ci4-5500-xtb-long-cast-3-free-spools/
  7. I bought these at the end of last season from Tackle Direct. Ultegra- $290 shipped: I bought a Votex knob to replace the joke OEM knob on the Ultegra and used it once last winter, and three times this year. It is indeed, the farthest- casting spinning reel I have ever used. It was never dunked, but it did get splashed a lot 4 weeks ago. I opened up the sideplate and did not see water intrusion. The main spool has 20# white Sufix 832, one has new, unfished / uncast green Sufix 30 or 40# Spectra, and the third spool remains unmolested. There is one faint scratch on the reel stem from transport in my Rod Vault (5th pic). Other than that, this super-lightweight carbon fiber hybrid reel could pass as new. Saragosa- $240 shipped: Spooled up with new unfished / uncast yellow 30# Spiderwire Stealth, I mounted it on a few rods and never got a chance to use it. All reels come as shown with boxes, spool shims, and papers. Why am I selling these? Despite how smooth, light, and sexy these are, I decided they don't really fit my current fishing style. However, because of how smooth, light, and sexy these are, I'll just as easily keep them rather than get low-balled like crazy . Thanks for lookin'! Buy 'em both for $515 shipped.
