fs: stcroix avid surf 10' casting 2pc. mint, hardly used. extended.

5 posts in this topic

i really wanna sell this, so i can have extra funds for the upcoming spring. xD

 

so ... ive modified it a bit because im a big lug. the stock handle length leaves a little wanted IMO.

i added about 6-7" to the butt.

i inserted a cut rod as far and tight as itll go no ( NO EPOXY!!!! means REMOVABLE!!! FYI )

 

wrapped corktape over the new extension, THEN put X pattern heatshrink over the entire handle..

so the rod has a nice soft feel, yet itll grip.

 

so basically.. its still a stock rod =D but looks great with the heatshrink.

if you dont like it, you can take it all off easily.

 

rod has a nice smooth action, better then premiers. its nice working range is about 1.5oz to 3.5oz. loads very nicely at 2.25+

 

i took this rod out fishing 5 times. and wasnt lucky , caught nothing.

 

200$ shipped usps priority to your doorstep in a tube.

 

and heres the rod now! WOW pics!

custom abu 5500 cs chrome mag elite. is NOT included. just put on to reference its size/ratio to length.

Curious if you were down to the backing on that 5500 when you launched? That rig looks to throw a friggin country mile. cwm31.gif Dutch

line level wise. i can unload about half spool. maybe more.

and thats pretty damn far.. when the spool diameter goes down to like 3/4"

 

i have daiwa saltiga surf line on it. about 200 yards odd, of 30# ? i think.
