  1. Looking to trade an Avet LX 6/3 for a Seigler, Truth or Release SM or SS reel. I'm located on Oahu in Hawaii. Will ship USPS priority medium box flat rate anywhere in the US.
  2. Wanting to buy Seigler SM reel. I'm on Oahu, in Hawaii. PayPal ready. Lmk what you got and your asking price.
  3. Original release LG left hand retrieve in all silver with power t-bar handle and aluminum round handle. This is one of the originals that doesn’t have the annoying strike button on the lever. Fairly rare I guess since they all have the strike button and have obviously all been rebranded twice. Excellent condition overall no scratches. Comes with box and warranty card. Asking $350 plus shipping
  4. Purchased this Seigler LGN brand new last year for the purpose of jigging striped bass. Never ended up using it, has been sitting in the bag in storage since. Color is Red, it’s reel #237. 100% made in the USA and carries their lifetime warranty. Asking $300 shipped PayPal, Not looking for trades at this time thanks.
  5. Selling a Brand New never used Seigler SM star drag in red #305. Purchased, spooled with Jbraid 50# but never saw the outside of my house. Asking $350 shipped. Also for sale is a very good condition, 9/10 cosmetically, 10/10 mechanically Saltiga Z 4000H I recently purchased from a member here. Reel is buttery smooth, spooled with 45#, 100% made in Japan. I hate to sell this one as I never even got a chance to fish it. But things come up. $375 firm. Please see pics for reference.
  6. Greetings Up for grabs is a barely used heaver combo that is sure to be a welcome addition to any anglers arsenal. I have owned this reel combo since the summer of 2016 and have fished with it a grand total of 4 trips. I typically use heavy spinning gear, and just haven't gotten around to tossing this heaver setup as much as I'd like. She's a dream to fish, but I just don't use it much First up is the Truth SM reel. The reel has been washed off after every use and wiped down as well. Virtually no signs of wear. Comes spooled with 20# Sakuma mono. Drag is strong, and all components work flawlessly. $290 shipped Next up is the Carolina Cast Pro Series 13 foot 6-10 casting rod. She tosses 8-n-bait like a dream, and has plenty of backbone to fight the largest fish swimming our east-coast waters. a handful of light scratches are visible here and there, and one area has a 1/4" nick in the finish (tried my best to photograph it). The guides are flawless, with ZERO rust or damage. Reel seat looks brand new, as does the butt of the rod. Don't want to ship it, but will do so east of the Mississippi. $260 picked up in eastern NC; $290 shipped in a rod tube east of the Mississippi. $565 shipped takes the combo. Ben
  7. This woman deserves the highest of Presidential Awards from Trump for all she has uncovered. Three Major Takeaways from the Russia Report’s Findings: 1. Flynn Didn’t Lie Former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the embattled three-star general who was fired by the White House for allegedly misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his conversation with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, did not lie to the FBI special agents who interviewed him at the White House in January 2017. This is important because Flynn eventually plead guilty to one count of making false statements about his December 2016 phone conversation with Kislyak to DOJ Special Counsel Robert Mueller, “even though the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents did not detect any deception during Flynn’s interview.” It is odd that Flynn would plead guilty to one count of lying when the agents didn’t believe that he was purposefully misleading them but close friends and associates of Flynn told this reporter that he has been forced to sell his home in northern Virginia in an effort to keep up with mounting legal fees and that he couldn’t afford to keep fighting the Special Counsel. Even more bizarre is that one of the two agents who conducted the interview was FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who is now under investigation himself for sending vehemently anti-Trump text messages to his paramour FBI Attorney Lisa Page, as previously reported. Strzok, who was the former Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division, was removed from the Special Counsel’s investigation after the DOJ Inspector General uncovered the anti-Trump texts, which also appeared to contain information on the investigations. Strzok was moved to the Human Resources division of the FBI. Both Page and Strzok continue to work with the FBI but are believed to be cooperating with the DOJ investigations, according to sources. Highly classified Intelligence Leaks Flynn’s conversation with Kislyak was leaked to columnist David Ignatius with the Washington Post on January, 12. The transcripts of the phone conversation is considered highly classified leak and a violation of federal law. It is currently under investigation and was believed by Republicans to have come from a senior level Obama administration official and considered highly classified. Flynn was asked by a Presidential Transition Team member to contact foreign governments Moreover, according to the report, the “on or about December 22, 2016, ‘a very senior member of the Presidential Transition Team’ (PTI) directed General Flynn to contact representatives of foreign governments. This request concerned a resolution about Israeli settlements submitted by Egypt to the U.N. Security Council around December 21, 2016. Later, on December 22, General Flynn contacted Ambassador Kislyak and ‘requested that Russia vote against or delay the resolution.’ The next day, Ambassador Kislyak informed General Flynn that Russia would not comply On December 29, 2016, President Obama ‘authorized a number of actions’ – including new sanctions-‘in response to the Russian government’s aggressive harassment of U.S. officials and cyber operations aimed at the U.S. election in 2016.’ After the sanction was placed on Russia at the end of the Obama administration the report found that Gen. Flynn had discussed with a senior transition team member “what, if anything, to communicate to the Russian Ambassador about the U.S. sanctions.” Comey walks back on Flynn Even former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by President Trump last year, had apparently told Congress that the agents did not believe Flynn had lied. Although, in recent interviews to promote his book A Higher Loyalty, Comey is saying now that he has no recollection of what the agents may or may not have thought. His statements contradict the findings of the Russia report and previous stories that suggest he knew the agents did not believe Flynn lied to them. Flynn redactions The Russia report, however, is highly redacted and it appears by reading the report that there was more information on Flynn that has yet to be made public. If it is eventually redacted we may have more answers than questions on what Flynn did and possibly what Comey knew. 2. Clapper Leaked the Dossier To Numerous Reporters In early March, I reported that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper may have leaked information to CNN regarding the classified briefings given to then president-elect Trump on former British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier, which claimed the Russians had compromising information on the president-elect. Clapper’s role became more apparent when the Comey’s memos about his interactions with Trump were released to the public. In the memos, Comey admits that it was Clapper who asked him to brief Trump on the dossier and Comey has repeated that in a number of interviews over the past several weeks. He also noted that he told Trump that CNN and other news outlets had the dossier and were looking for a “news hook.” “I said there was something that Clapper wanted me to speak to the [President-elect] about alone or in a very small group,” Comey said. In an interview with Fox News Bret Baier, Comey discusses briefing the President on the more salacious parts of the dossier. BAIER: The intel briefing at Trump Tower. You briefed the president-elect on the sliver of the dossier, really the salacious part about the prostitutes in Moscow and that allegation. COMEY: Correct. BAIER: Didn’t include anything broader than that, right? COMEY: Correct. My mission in that private briefing was just to tell him about that slice of it. Russia report evidence on Clapper The Russia report discovered that Clapper, who is now a CNN national security analyst, “provided inconsistent testimony to the Committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN.” They noted that when Clapper was initially asked about leaks related to the dossier in July 2017, Clapper denied “discussing the dossier compiled by Steele or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists.” But according to the report, Clapper eventually acknowledged discussing the “dossier with CNN journalist Jake Tapper.” He also admitted that he may have told other journalists about the dossier. “Clapper’s discussion with Tapper took place in early January 2017, around the time IC leaders briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump, on ‘the Christopher Steele information,’ a two-page summary of which was ‘enclosed in’ the highly-classified version of the IC,” the Russia report states. On Jan. 10, 2017, Tapper published an article on CNN’s Tapper referring to the briefing and the classified documents. It noted that the “classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations…about Mr. Trump that was included in a two-page synopsis . . . appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.” It also mentioned that it was “derived from memos compiled by a former British intelligence analyst operative.” Those claims were sourced to “multiple U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the briefings. The next day, Clapper issued a statement describing a call with President-elect Trump in which Clapper “expressed my profound-dismay at the leaks that have been appearing the in the press.” After CNN published the briefing, Buzzfeed then published the dossier and the Russia collusion story was well underway, according to the report and numerous congressional officials. 3. Former Feinstein Staffer Continues Where Fusion GPS Left Off Last but not least, as first reported by Sean Davis with The Federalist, a former staff member for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, is helping direct a continued investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. The Fusion GPS investigation, which was paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and DNC, is being picked up by Daniel J. Jones, a former Feinstein staffer. According to Davis, the former staffer “is intimately involved with ongoing efforts to retroactively validate a series of salacious and unverified memos produced by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, and Fusion GPS.” Jone’s name appears to be redacted in the Russia report but his company, “Penn Quarter Group” is mentioned in its continuing efforts to investigate Trump. Davis noted that congressional documents and texts leaked between Sen. Mark Warner,D-Va. and Oleg Daripaska, a registered foreign agent for a Russian aluminum oligarch “indicate that Daniel J. Jones is intimately involved with ongoing efforts to retroactively validate a series of salacious and unverified memos produced by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, and Fusion GPS. The dossier, which declassified documents show was used as a basis for securing secret wiretaps on Trump campaign affiliates, was reportedly jointly funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”

  9. I'd like to develop a list of Trump stated intentions before the election so we can review his performance over the next several month. This is apolitical, so save the hyperbole. I'm looking for factual statements that can be backed up by a record and in context. I appoint myself judge of what makes the list. Let's keep this to measurable performance that's actually within his power to influence. Also, don't tell us what you want or think he meant. Quote in context if possible, Give me your input, and if possible, cite a reference so all can fact check. I'll start with some easy stuff. 1. Impenetrable physical wall - Mexico will pay. 2. Repeal/Replace Obamacare. 3. Moratorium on Muslim immigration. 4. National Concealed Carry permit. 5. An end to "sanctuary." 6. Special prosecutor for Hillary. 7. All illegals will be detained until deported. 8. Cancel "amnesty" exectutive orders. 9. Refuse visas to nations that will not accept their deportees back. 10. Add 5000 border patrol agents. 11. Renegotiate NAFTA. 12. Pull out of TPP. 13. Label China as a Currency Manipulator. 14. Bring trade cases against China 15. "Take out" the families of terrorists. 16. Re-institute waterboarding. 17. Cut taxes. (Looking for more specifics.) Please refute these if you think I'm incorrect. Expect derision if you can't play this straight.
  10. This comes off the discussion of the Tranx, and especially the chat at the end of the thread about wahoo and the need to maintain a very tight line, lest the fish get off. johndtuttle or anybody else, what about the SM surf star version of the Truth reels? 6/1 gear ratio, big muscular gears, a drag that I suspect is as good as the Tranx. The range of uses for which the SM Surf and Tranx are both appropriate overlap quite a bit. They're both best suited to casting fairly heavy loads. The Truth is meant for "3-16 oz.," as appropriate for a reel meant for Heaver usage (though I recall we have one poster who mentioned that he likes it as a plugging reel in the CCC.) At the 3-4-5 oz. end of the spectrum, the Truth is probably competitive as a casting tool; I don't recall what system the Tranx uses for cast control, but the SM Surf uses a magnetic cast control. How do you think they'd compare with each other? Price is roughly comparable. SM takes 400 yards of 50 braid (so I read). No levelwind convenience on the SM Surf. I suspect it's a Newell 229 on steroids. And while I'm at it, somebody with a reel want to do a teardown & maintenance article? Must run off to Alan's site and see if one is up there.
