ltruong110 posted a topic in Main ForumHello All, I wanted to try to give back what knowledge that I have gathered here. I figured I could help out some of the new surf fisher(wo)mens. I have been building my surf gear setup slowly for a while now and wanted to share the information that I have learned. This information is to point people in a direction for them to start since I see a lot of "I am new what should I start with?" The information is geared more towards spinning setups. Majority of the prices are from one of our sponsor. Again it is just information I have gathered and like to share. If you would like to get the same product for cheaper check this link: http://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/forum/11-buyselltrade-forums/. If there are any question or more information you would like to know, for example: what is better product A vs product B, try this link:(Must Be Logged In For Link to Work) http://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/index.php?app=core&module=search&search_in=forums.
