    Good Deal on MAK 15 SEA

    Likely the Centaur fo pusihg the limits and the Predator for everything else.

    Good Deal on MAK 15 SEA

    All depends on budget and target fish. If works well on a UC Centaur or Raptor at the Lupe.

    Rod for AFB 65

    Sorry, no rod suggestions. Though I am curious if you think you might use this setup offshore at all why not spool it full with 30 lb. braid? Then you would have a fighting chance if a bigger model grabs on. And you will not have to replace it in a year or two like mono.

    Avet HX 5/2 versas JX6/3-MC Rator for 60#

    To find the max drag on most of my Avet reels I get up on a second story balcony or similar location about 6 feet above the ground and start letting line fall off of the reel in free spool. I then turn up the preset until the spool is no longer freely turning under the pull of line hanging off...

    If you need fish that bad.....just ask.

    Agree that these folks are total dirt bags but. I am not sure I would hold up that sort of justice knowing all the other crap that goes with it. I think we have been fighting over in the sandbox for a generation to avoid it.

    Replacement Clicker Knob for Pro EXW 4/02

    You have to call them to order anyway so you can confirm then. The website is not live for online ordering. I wish it were. Been that way for a long time.

    And you can actually cast the 15 since the spool is so light.

    Swap original drags for G2

    Easiest thing to do is upgrade to Raptors. Spendier but worth it.

    giant on standup on the East Coast

    Beautiful in every respect. Flat water, nice weather, great boat setup for the fight, skilled angler, beautiful fish, good gear, good crew and a perfect dart shot at the end. Can't think it gets much better than that. :-)

    Santa Cruz Bluefin

    I am ready for them is they show up here. Too bad the Albacore stopped in SE Alaska. They are all welcome further north.
