Congrats Cristo! =D> No such surprises for me when I came off the lake today. Please do post more photos and I can't wait for the report from the water. Well done

Re: Shattered my P3 Bearing Down

So sorry man. Check the bbc boards too. It seems like a lot of great rods were posted in recent months and some definitely made it there and not here and vice versa. I don't remember where I saw some of them anymore. There definitely was a P3 bearing down somewhere. P3 was/is a great set of sticks; ...

Re: TD-S "Greenie" original (circa 1997-98)

I think you would need to find the right collector, especially if it's not mint. I go to an old school bait shop now and again that's also a sort of tackle antique store. It's a combination of some really cool older stuff and some junk. The guy that owns it would probably price this rod around 120, ...

Ha! I thought for a second that this was in reference to some super cheap new one ten stick, not more expensive jerk bait, before clicking the link.

Re: Looking for a spinning rod to throw larger baits (1/4-1/2)oz.

I fish this way when the conditions call for it. Depending on the time of year, I can go a week or more without picking up a baitcaster even though they dominate my collection. It can be very effective and it's fun. When they are crushing lures, I use a st croix legend tournament TBS71MF. When I nee...

Re: Help me pick a big spinning reel.

I have the exact ci4 reel DirtyD4 speaks of in 4000 size. I bought it new when they came out. Just used it today. It's a great reel and it feels smaller than other shimano 4000s in hand. I use more expensive reels and have more daiwa than shimanos, but I go back to this one frequently. It just feels...

Orochi Peak Performance series

I missed completely on these during their time. I have my eyes on an Advantage type R. I looked around TT a bit and did not find an overwhelming amount of info on the series. Perhaps I missed a key thread somewhere. Honestly, I became interested in the series simply because I find the rods attractiv...

Perfection. I would have to sit on it for a while before taking it on a lake.

Re: St. Croix gold start warranty

Thanks for the input. My wife talked me into sending it back. I did like the rod. I found an Apia that's a bit heavier and two piece. I had a relatively light morning, so I just went and did it. I guess it was in part laziness. I really appreciate guys that sell here and on auction sites that packag...

St. Croix gold start warranty

Anybody made use of this warranty that would care to share? I broke a ES76MF doing a Gong Lei type heave onto the dock with about a 3 lb bass. It was a great rod and has served me very well for about 3 years. However, I have had my eyes set on a different spinner that could double duty for some shor...

Small vibrating vitalian by MB

This one sucked me in. You'll need a translate function if you choose to hit the link. I'll check them out when they show up on hook up tackle. I hope they don't work. Hook up might as well have a direct deposit set up with my employer.
