Rods were Savage Rods. Both were Calstar Boomer 80-130# blanks, both had Winthrop guides (one had oversized Winthrops), and both had AFTCO short bent butts.
The rods for the Canyon reels were boat rods one with AFTCO and the other with Stuart guides. I do not recall the builder or blank.
Harness and belt were Smitty. These were KEY to landing these giants.
We used multiple 130s in the chair. All with 8ft broomstick rods. All 200# dacron with 200# Momoi Diamond spliced into it.
Please let me know if I left anything off.
