    Avet hx or hxw for big tuna

    I have both, and while I’m confident using the HX in that application, I’ve also never wished I had smaller/lighter gear when fighting a large tuna. If you’re going to have 1 big fish rig I’d go with the HXW. It’s wider but not awkwardly wide.

    Tern 600 handle length

    Hey guys, I recently switched from the whiffle ball knob on my tern to the rubber knob which helped, but the reel still just feels a bit awkward to me. After comparing it to some other reels I own, it looks like the length of the handle is quite a bit longer than others, making the rotation of a...

    Avet JX 6.0 G2 or Fathom 40N for wahoo bombs/iron

    In my opinion there is no need for a 2 speed on wahoo. Both of the reels you mentioned are very capable though. But if you’re in wahoo country, having a couple rigs tied up is always a good idea.

    SKB 7200 custom

    On the older boxes that don’t have the threads for rod holders, does anyone know if you can attach them via rivets or rivnuts/bolt? Seems like it would be pretty easy but I don’t have one. Looking at a used one so just curious.

    Cow capable options - rod/reel

    If this is your 3rd setup, I’d avoid buying cow gear. On a fall 10-day, you’ll be using your 30, 40 and 50 pound rigs much more than this. Are you covered there? What about a jigstick? Wahoo bomb rod? I’d get something to cover those bases before a cow rod. You'll likely only spend a day doing...
