  1. Hey all, I'm looking into getting a new surf reel. I've mostly narrowed it down to the Saragosa and the Slammer. I've always been a Penn guy, but I ordered a Battle 2 and it had significant play in the bail, so I'm now willing to consider Shimano. I'm leaning towards the Saragosa due to the numerous positive reviews, but I'm worried about the wobble issue. I'm thinking about an 8000 to be paired with an 11' mojo, or occasionally my 9' mojo. TL;DR - how common is the wobble? If I order new from TackleDirect or Bass Pro, am I likely to get a perfectly functioning reel, or is there a good chance it's going to need to be returned? Thanks!
  2. Purchased this handle for an Ocea jigger. Mounted it. Removed it. Found an issue with the jigger and returned it. The reel and thus the handle were never fished. But has been removed from the plastic which I’m not sure I have anymore. So selling as used. $45 local pickup Queens/Nassau $50 shipped Will also trade for a new Stradic FK c5000 spool.
  3. Hi folks, Looking to find those multi hex wrenches the tackle shops use to remove the nut on the reel handle. I don't know the proper name, can someone please point me in the right direction? Thank you
  4. Does anyone have an old Shimano Stradic that they are scrapping for parts? I'm looking for the oscillating slider assembly. Thanks
  5. Reel is in excellent condition. Just spooled it with 15lb Daiwa J-Braid x 8. Asking $375 free shipping CONUS.
  6. Selling this 8000FH Stradic, cosmetically it's in decent shape only scuffs are on the gold parts and handle. No nicks on spool lip, I will remove braid before shipping. Mechanically everything works as it should but probably not as smooth as it was new, could use a cleaning perhaps? Located in east hartford,ct $65 + shipping
  7. For sale, brand new, never fished or spooled. Low gear, Tranx 300a. $240 local pick up Queens/Nassau $250 shipped
  8. Already have the BV-300 in the 5.1 ratio. Couldn’t help but pull the trigger on the older (2011) version of the Ocea Jigger in the power gear. I’ve already fluked and togged with the BV. It was effortless. Casts pretty well as well. Holds the same amount of line. I know it’s not anywhere near as smooth. I’m curious if it is indeed that much more powerful than the Ocea Jigger or are we just looking at drag numbers? Which will hold up better over time, which is more protected again bearing corrosion (rinsing down the reels after each use taken into consideration)? I know it’s apples to oranges in and lever vs star comparison. But for fluke, striped bass, tog, which is the better overall reel? And does the Ocea Jigger have enough power and drag to wreckfish with?

  14. This has been discussed before. Looking for an up to date opinion. Jigging for blackfish. 20lb braid, 30-40lb leader. South shore Long Island. Montauk. Jersey. I’ve seen a number of smaller Daiwa BG’s (2500-300). Saltists. I’ve seen a Tatula used (I wouldn’t). Stradic FK? Ballistic Lt 2500? Other thoughts? Not the biggest Penn fan. I know Tackleadvisors goes through them all. Would love your opinion for this application, as well as all of yours.

  21. Hoping to do some fishing in Hawaii next year. Would love to charter a trip for yellowtail. I'm wondering how do you guys travel with your rods? Are you traveling with one piece rods and using a special case? Is there a baggage difficulty with this? Are you using multi piece rods? Which are good to use with a Shimano Ocea Jigger 1500PG? Will that reel do the job? Thank you
  22. Hello SOL, The Winter purge begins. I am trying to get rid of some gear that doesn't get used as often as I intended due to hoarding and upgrading. I can provide high-quality, detailed pictures via text. Just PM me your cell phone number and I'll take some pics. I'd be glad to take specific pics and answer any questions you might have regarding condition in this thread, per SOL rules. Prices are firm and I would prefer local pick up, not shipping at this time. South Jersey, Mays Landing area. I can meet within a reasonable distance.
