  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 y’all I just got a used ci4 ultegra 5500. It is the Shimano Ultegra 5500 ci4 xsb model which came out 9 years ago. I was wondering if any owners of either the new or old model could tell me if I had the long spool. The guy that sold it to me told me there was an extra spool. I am aware that it comes with one regular sized spool and a “long spool”. However the two spools I got are the same size. I added pictures below and both the spools seemed to measure 2.5 inches. Furthermore the plastic slow-oscillating unit below the spool, seems to not align straight hence the rattles and the uneven feeling when I turn. I understand that since it is an older model that it won’t be perfect but I would like to know if I got what I paid for. If not, I may have to buy a spare long spool for the reel. Thanks IMG_4967.mov
  3. Hey y’all I ordered the 45mm gomexus knob. I tried putting it on my 2014 ci4 ultegra 5500. However unlike my other gomexus knobs the screw that I have isn’t long enough to fit through the bearing and the hole. Do I have to get another screw or is there a way I can fix this? Because if I were to screw it without a bearing, the knob wouldn’t spin. I wonder why gomexus doesn’t just give a screw as part of the set UPDATE: I found out that the old ultegra model has a different shaft than every other model so none of the bearings or washers fit. I am disappointed that I was told it would fit by a gomexus member when it didn’t. Contacted them again and waiting for a response now IMG_4979.mov
  4. Hey yall I have a penn battle 5000 which was first spooled by bass pro shops a long time ago. I just decided to change the line but when I tried spooling it, the line lay was bunched mostly near the top and not very much at the bottom. However, my reel did not come with extra washers so I could change the line lay. Do yall know where I could get some?? What size/type/amount of washers do I need. Would 1 extra thin washer in addition to my current one be enough??
  5. 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.
