I have a lot of "old gear"....
Nothing but good solid choices mentioned. I'll throw out the Metaloid 5II,
You can fish (20-30-40) with it, 2 speed, small, torque and price is...
That little Metaloid 5II is a kick ass, fun little reel. It's a fantastic go-to 30# reel.
I wouldn't hesitate on the 25N either. I can only speak...
I did not just watch that! WTF is happening with common sense today?
Day after Christmas... 1 Andros A16IIa, 1 Komodo 471P. That's all I have to say.
Been through this with too many loved ones...Prayers sent
Hit up Jerry A.K.A. REELMAN
I have the 12SIIa set up as a 50# Jig/bomb slinger for Whoo's
John, you think this is a 30# reel at best? Might consider one for a light jig/heavy plastic setup
Very cool, can't wait to get home from work and enjoy all that you posted.
What word are you looking for? We just had three pages of info, thoughts and reviews.
Torium 20's - depending on condition $ 125.00-$150.00, use to be $179.00 new.

Got a couple Tady A1 jigs that need new hooks, anyone know what the original hook was or a better replacement.
I'm using a Calstar 770H but in all honesty, I haven't had a chance to use it. Waiting to put an Okuma Andros 16II on it.
Have the same rod with the reel seat, go to 30#. GLWS
This would be me:-)
Nice job guy's
The theft is bad enough but to take the reel and leave the empty box? Holy Fuck! That's just cruel.
Mak 10 = 50#
Thinklng Andros 16 for 60#
Mak 16 = 80#
Mak 15 too wide, maybe a 16 narrow?
I heard the Freedom where hitting 70-100#'s. Any truth to that?
Got the A12SII, LOVE IT. Mak15 is a little too wide for my liking
Already have a Mak16 dedicated for 80#. Andros 12SII Is awesome, dedicated 50#...
Got the rod (Calstar 770H) and now I need the reel. Yes, it will be Okuma. I think I know the answer but maybe I'm just looking for some...
Oh Crap, almost forgot about that one, had a buddy get a ticket at Shell Reef.
It's pretty much common sense. Must have helmet, no riding doubles, don't burn pallets. Iv'e been going for ten years but have missed the last...
Nothing more to say.
All it did was change my 1 hour commute home into a 2 hour commute.
Love the 405 fwy.
Same here. I-Pad is terrible, PC not so bad but a little jumpey
Just a picture I found showing the allen head screws
As far as Fishing shows go, "Stoked on Fishing" is a decent watch.
Here's a 50VSW
Just noticed the out drive on my Skippy was down today. Volvo 290. Fully raised two weeks ago, now it's down. No visual leaks at the cylinders,...
If you can't find one here, go hit up Sam at Island Tackle.
One of my favorites, matched up with a little Metaloid 5II
Phenix 790H Ultra Swimbait (15-40)
He had a guy that worked with him (Rob) Hawaiian dude. He was at Turners in Torrance last I heard, maybe he knows.
Terry was great, he told me he was going to relocate but never heard or saw him again.
Haven't had a chance to look at it but I'm pretty sure your'e on the right track from everything I've looked into to. I have a feeling I'm a...
These things are ridiculous, I...
Great video and you're one lucky S.O.B.:D
Looking for an experienced mechanic to work in construction field. Based in Irvine and a service truck fully loaded provided. Must be willing to...
Metaloid 5II, Fathom 25N, MXJ or slightly tricked out 220 Newell
875H or 800H Calstar
No shunt, new choke assembly with rebuild, new mechanical pump, timing set at 8* per spec.
Idles at 750. Ran fine up until we got back to the dock
Check these guys out
Someone else told me that, my boat doesn't have one.
Like slapazz said "it's a different feeling for sure". I've done Newport Harbor a few times. Something about kicking your seal looking...
I'll try and keep this as short and simply as possible.
New engine and out drive re-sealed, bellows, hoses and cleaned. (350 chevy w/ 290DP Volvo...
Pull the prop and make sure you didn't get some line wrapped on the shaft. Sure fire way to damage a seal.
I believe that was the eight day I was on two years ago, nothing short of epic. Great group of guys. Shooting for it next year.
Great report. Love the way you laid it out
You'll still do well and have a blast.
I believe most processors won't come to the dock unless it's a three day trip or longer. I could be wrong.
For the price the Metaloid can't be beat. Fun reel to fish with, plenty of power and drag. You can always step it up to an Andros but I don't see...
Looking for one galvanized rim. Tire not necessary but a 225/75-R16 would be nice.
16" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2
I roll my own;).
As soon as I hit the Lotto or get around to robbing that bank she'll look as good as your's Tony:-)
Finally ready for her maiden voyage with new motor[ATTACH]
If you don't mind. I have the carbon fiber but still need to do a layout.
BTW, didn't intend to jack your threado_O
Definitely worth a look, this thing is bad ass. I need to step up my game
Yes^^^^^^what they said. I've had my boat for 14 years and never had a problem.
Volvo or Yamaha blue grease works well.
Who did your laser engraving? I was thinking of doing a carbon fiber insert on my gauge panel and would like to have the switches labeled. If a...
Your a mad scientist. Very nice work
I believe the only boats that have permits for the Lupe are Royal Polaris, Shogun and Royal Star. Which boat are you on?
Got to ask, are you lubricating the line before you cinch it down? To have the same problem with all said knots sounds like a "burn" issue when...
Izor is good stuff, use it now. Years ago I use to love Maxima Green, not a lot of places carry it anymore.
Metaloid= 65 spectra / 30# mono or fluoro leader
Mak 16= 100 spectra / 80# wind-on leader
Interesting, anyone else go this route?
Damn flares expired, other than West Marine, is there anywhere you can get the standard Hand/Arial flares at a decent price? I normally don't put...
You are a BD GOD,
That's an insane amount of posts
Has any one ever successfully switch over the digital trim gauge set up on a Volvo 290 DP to an analog set up? Possibly using the digital sending...
I believe you double the intake. 3/4" intake = 1-1/2" out.
That's what I remember, others should chime in
Few things I learned as of lately.
1) High idle will definitely make it go "clunk"
2) Running synthetic gear oil will make it shift harder.(I...
You know, the $ 500.00 check BD sends you for every 1000th post.:D
Evidently if the original poster deletes his post your response goes with it.
Couple days ago I replied to a guys post. Put me at 1000 messages. Got my award, life was good. Now today I'm back to 999 and the original post...
You can go to Angeles Oaks or if you take hwy 38 towards Big Bear, turn on a little road called Glass Road, it will take you to a little resort...
Every time I hop on a boat I get at least three people asking me about mine.
One of the best accessories I own.
That was my initial thought when I bought it. Then it seems like everyone says it needs to be at least 5-1 + and 38"-40"+ per crank to be an ideal...
I was going to use a GFGR765L with a Baja 113HN but the 4.3-1 ratio and 34" per crank had me thinking it may not be fast enough.
Wayne pretty much hit the nail on the head. I use to fish Jenk's a lot. Always did well from a float tube, dead nuts down the center. Power bait,...
Your 100% correct, my Mak 10 just makes it on the 875H but barely. It has a 26mm reel seat while the 800H has a 24mm.
So I was originally going to pair up my Andros 12sII with my GFGR 875H.(30-60) 7' 6"
But I also have a Makaira 10SEa that I was going to pair with...
I believe it was around 450 of Izor. Haven't put the top shot on yet but most likely a 20-30 ft shot of 50#
Have the same setup, going to try my Andros 12SII on it next time out
Haven't used the Tib clamp with the Cork Puppy but I do have the CP on three of my deckhand rods. One fits like it was made for it, the other I...
Metaloid 5II / Calstar 800M. Wasn't a 10 day but an 8 day, had a blast with the Do-Do's.
No doubt. My first 8 day trip was the same way. Damn near cried when the boat docked. I was 48 at the time, when I got back from the trip my wife...
Good resource, http://www.kayakobsessions.com/index.html
Talk to Brett, tell him Dave sent you.
Looks like the sensor for the tilt gauge
Definitely considering it
Wish you posted this 10 day ago, just picked one up. Decent price, GLWS
Until you find a 800MH:D
Agree. It's got to be the slowest boat getting back from the Island.
Also,I know there's money in numbers but damn, they pack that boat tight.
