  1. Hi guys. I want to get a Saltiga 8000 H and put a 14000 spool on it, as the H has more cranking power than the Xh, but can still retrieve over a 1m of line per crank. But I have heard that due to the larger main gear in the new Saltigas, even the XH still provides a lot of torque and therefore, is the better option for popping/stickbaiting. What are your thoughts?
  2. So this summer I want to start going 15-30 miles off Montauk for tuna, mostly popping and jigging with spinning, occasionally trolling those small Hogy lures. I want a combo for around $500. I want the rod to be a 1 piece. I will be targeting primarily small to mid-size bluefin, with the possibility of a bigger one. Right now I'm thinking of a pen slammer 10500, with a pen carnage boat spinning 50 - 100#. Any ideas?
  3. Brand new, never used. Never got chance to use it for tuna. Sting-O 7'6" tuna popping rod. Or just a heavy jetty stick. Great parabolic power. Casts 2 to 4~5 oz. 2 piece rod. Butt grip, aluminum reel seat with locks. Old but nice video showing same model lineup rod under load. Manufacturer's video, weird music warning. Lower your volume before clicking. I remember it cost like $200?? back then which was a superb deal for a strong popping rod. That normally starts from $400 up to $1500+. Was a TD exclusive licensed product. So only they had it. $120 should be reasonable. Pick up only. Located in Brooklyn, NY.
  4. Looking to sell my NEW in plastic YAMAGA BLANKS 81/6 Blacky ( tuna special) popping rod. Rod is in perfect condition, no factory defects, built on spine , super straight, no issue whatsoever. This rod needs no introduction, a workhorse for guys chasing school bluefin and yellowfin in the 60-100 lbs, super easy to work lures with, purebred stickbait action with a forgiving tip section that loads flawlessly into a strong backbone and makes easy work of tuna and fast moving fish. I highly recommend it to beginners (because of its ability to keep tuna pinned to your lure, Quad Spine Concept that lets you fight tuna in a higher position without being afraid to lift the fish during the end game death circles and ease of use- very easy to cast and work lures). Guys with back problems or seniors will also appreciate the smooth, easy bend that makes it easy on your back when fighting a tuna with it’s constant head shakes. Rod comes with 2 year warranty as it was bought recently from the US distributor , and Dan at TackleNow generously agreed to extend the warranty to the new owner. Asking $525 shipped with tracking and insurance.
  5. Im heading out on a long range Tuna charter from Puerto Vallarta Mexico on the 18th. Reports are the Dorado are thick. I have a Stella 6K that I plan on using for whatever rod I get. Im looking for a used rod in excellent shape thats a good deal. I'll need it shipped as Im on the west coast. Let me know what you got, thanks
  6. Up for sale is my like new Daiwa Isla 7000 High Gear model. It’s a US reel, so no issues with Daiwa service. The only reason I’m selling is because I’ve moved towards Shimano for my offshore gear, and I like matching stuff...I know. I can’t find any marks on the reel, but I have used it a couple times, so I’d say 9.5/10 condition. Silky smooth, fast and powerful. Has well over 400yds of Jerry Brown hollow 100lb, and a casting wind on from Pelagic Outfitters. Get your tuna popping gear in order now, so when they show up like they have in recent years, you’re ready! Have box and paperwork. $620 shipped and insured to the lower 48.
  7. Shimano Trevala tvs66-mh2- almost new, used maybe twice. Two piece for ease of travel, joins at the top of the foregrip for one piece action. The perfect rod for our inshore/light offshore waters. A blast in stripers and blues, probably the best diamond jigging rod you'll find. $80 Stingo Fish G Rod- 5'6" vertical jigging rod rated for 200g (7oz) jigs, but it fishes 250g (~9oz) jigs beautifully. Used a handful of times on amberjack in North Carolina. Also a two piece, also connects at top of foregrip. These rods are unbreakable and discontinued. Removable rubber gimbal cap. Excellent condition. $100 OTI OceanXtreme 40/60 popping rod- 7'6", two piece butt join rod rated for plugs up to 125g (~4.4oz) This rod is perfect for our offshore/nearshore topwater opportunities. I've caught smaller tuna to about 20lbs or so, mahi, and some amberjack in NC on it, but I'm confident that it could handle tuna to 150lbs or so. It would actually make a great heavy jetty/bridge rod, as its length and action would allow you to cast big plugs a long way while not being too long and cumbersome, and you could really put the screws to a fish in big current. Has one small scratch in the epoxy by the stripper guide from a treble hook during a bumpy ride (pictured), but that's it. $200 If you buy all three and get yourself outfitted for all of your NY offshore/inshore jigging and popping adventures, I'll let em go for $360. Will meet up anywhere within reason from RVC
