Search over...Core 51mg7 has been procured 8-)
I think you'll be happy with your purchase. I have one mounted on a Cumulus 71MH, and it is my designated rig for T-rigged baby rage craws. I've fished it hard for years, caught a lot of fish with it as well, and it still keeps slingin'.

Bastarld got a new partner???.....yes I am about 5 years late on this telescoping beauty. This one is the 3rd Black Jungle I have had the chance at(other two were just cranking stick models but since long gone) The Double Bull has been on my radar in what had seemed forever as I have a thing for MB telescoping rods. Finally was able to button up a deal for a cherry one, bag/tag still intact :big grin: Hell of a find for me and way more rod than I imagined aesthetic wise(can't tell but the fleck Iin the reel seat is sexy) and power curve. Damn this is going to get some work. Big spoons probably for now but I am hopefull the muck/vegetation will come up better this season so I can go weightless double wide beavers as well as typical T-rig with tungsten on 6/0 Monster Gamakatsu EWGs. Here is some "pron" of stated specimen. I seem to been finding a different blank tech to be all in on :P .....it was X7/ASLs now it is the quiet but superb Pyrofil 8-) I seem to slowly be getting a squad of just that blank tech representatives :-k I will get some more thoughts on this bad boy once I get consistently going again. So much to say but for now I leave you all with my initial excitement 8-)

Fleck shots, and more Pyrofil detail in the sun along with some thread detail on the portion of the telescoping transition. love those details among others, Double footed guides almost all the way up withtraditional setting(I believe P3 7'11" is spiral/acid which I dont have yet), which is different from similar telescoping build specimens of MB where in my experience the first 2 guides recieved that double footed treatment.

I am heading to Kuaui tomorrow but my man Akira Kato from good ole HHS came through with this care package today. Talk about a sweet send me off. A little before and after. She is what I call an "Airy Frogger" :P Paired my Core 51mg7 with the White Python now for maximum hollow bodied excellence :lol: Super stoked about the addition of the new ALD0950RR, pairing that with Red Air BFS bearings should make this rig zip hollow bodies out there far and with ease :-k Kept the OG gears but added a new Carbontex washer set, plus some Daiwa SLP glow corks with matching red knob caps, handle nut retainer and red body screws to round her out. Nothing really that hasn't been done before probably but as usual thanks for letting me share.
