Will do, thanks.

Haven’t caught one yet, but I’ll be ready when I get the opportunity.

Merry Christmas to you and your family John
Avet Mxj or Mxl, filled with 50# spectra would be a good all around reel
I saw the John Collins video on the springer knot in August before my 2.5 day trip.
I used it with 130# fluoro, tied straight to the swivel on...
JX Raptor can do it all up to 60# line, HX Raptor for 80 to 100# line.
I just picked up the rod I was looking for, thanks Jim, it was good meeting you.
Thanks to everyone else that answered this thread.
Is your name on the new rod also?
I work in paramount
You listed three separate rods.
I know what a new factory rod looks like, is it new with tags?
What condition is the used factory rod?
You have one for sale? PM me
I'm trying Steven.
Im looking for a U C US 90 monster, with reel seat, factory or custom.

A US 90 Monster to pair with my black Penn Torque 25n
My other favorite ( cant just have one ) is an okuma cedros 10s LD (that I won on a wahoo dad charter jack pot) on a psw 700xh
JX Raptor filled with 65lb solid spectra on a GFGR 765L. It’s killer for yo-yo jigging
At no time did I feel under gunned, with 550yds of 80lb solid spectra and 6' of 130lb fluoro, I set the drag to 27lbs at strike and when the fish...

Now that’s a Lingasaurous, I love it when they hit the jig down deep, try to get back in they’re cave.
Here’s one I got a while back
For casting straight 80-100# spectra, large baits or heavy jigs, I like my HX Raptor, it’s filled with 550yrds of 80# JB solid, it’s light so it...
Got it on both assist hooks in the top of the mouth,
the jig was swinging around inside it’s mouth and at some point it bit down on the jig, it...
JX Raptor all day long
Here’s the flat fall I rigged up, it lost an eye in the fight
Drag set to 27# at strike, was dropping down past 300’ and was bit on the retrieve...
This is how I’ve set up my HX Raptor for the big bluefin on the flat fall.
I’ve got 550yds of 80# solid spectra to a 6’ leader of 130# fluoro to...
You should be ok for overnight trips, yellowtail, dorado and school size tuna.
The lexa set up is good for 20 to 30# live bait/ fly line.
Here’s what worked for me last week.
80# solid spectra, FG knot connection to 6’ of 130# fluorocarbon tied with springer knot to swivel attached...

Looks good for flat seas, but how would it handle some big swells?
I have a 765L and a custom 770H, the HX Raptor just feels better on the 770h.
I've used it for all connections of spectra to mono or fluoro, 20# on up to 100#.
Works great, haven't had any issues with it.
Make sure to keep...
