I live in LA, the boat I fish is in Cabrillo (San Pedro)
Thanks. A tad too heavy for what I'm looking for. I'll shoot you a pm
Thanks for the heads up. That would be cheaper than a new stick and I love this rod. I'll have to find a shop to do it.
Thanks for the feedback guys. The rod was used when I got it but I didn't notice any issue here. I took it out on Saturday and noticed when I was...
Thanks for hitting me up. if were up there, Id probably scoop
My 900m deckhand style stick had the graphite where I mount the reel, crush in...Anyone have a similar 9foot I can throw 45's on with 40lb
My reel seat on my 900 m has failed and the graphite is crushed in (deckhand style). Does calstar still make/ replace rods with warranty? I tried...
Thank you guys! Someone actually hit me up a month ago with one and I picked it up. Cant seem to delete this thread. Thanks much again.
If you ever make it closer to LA, I'm in!
I'll shoot you a PM
I live mid city, off the 10, la cienaga exit
Word. Someone hit me back Saturday night with a possible match, deal Pending. If it falls through, I'll hit you up. Thanks much for following up.
Anyone have any experience with the original 700xh? I want to pair it with my 40nld2 and fish with 60 lb topshots, maybe 80 if I left my mak 20...
Looking for a squall 12 to fish 15 lb and good freespool
Where in the OC?
I posted a thread last night looking for this exact rod. Great and underrated pieces
Anyone have one of these kicking around?
What's the rating and length on the 870. I'm assuming that an 8 ft rod or Is it 7?
That's a steal if I've ever seen one
Are you in the LA area, ever?
Fathom still available?
I haven't checked mine at full since blueprint. I asked for 24 at strike which I got and is well more than enough. I have all of the fathom ld...
Got off a 3 day last week and I can confirm dudes were fishing and catching bluefin on a fathom 40 . These fish were on the flat fall and loaded...
You are exactly right. Brought it in last week and Okuma being Okuma, fixed it in 20 minutes. There was a washer out of alignment.
That's a nice setup. What are you using for line and what is your drag set at?
Word. Yeah I had a 40 I sold like 6 months back that was one of the original productions. Still solid AF. For sake of the torque comparison in...
Pretty easy answer for me. The guts of the fathom and the torque are pretty much the same. Torque is machined frame over the diecast fathom and it...
Yeah. They are great. Brought my Mak in yesterday in person. They serviced and fixed it in 30 mins ....Cannot beat that!!! Oh and they did it for...
Amazing this isn't sold. I sold this exact reel with no line for 200 about a week ago. Someone buy this!
This is a steal!!!!
Should link to the video
They charge a standard $95 fee for just about all of their blueprints. Idk if you have an IG but I uploaded the video of the free spool there. My...
Thanks for all the input guys. Super helpful!
So I know most on here may say this isn't worth it for a reel that can be had for a little over 200 but damn.....I went to the Cal Sheets booth at...
Thanks much for the feedback. I figured something was off
What do you have yours set at? I have mine at 24 at strike and 42 at full.
Thanks guys. Appreciate the info.
Going on my first multi day tuna trip. Got the 20 visx loaded with 100lb JB Hollow and wondering how to set the drag at strike. I usually use the...
Send it in. Something isn't right here. Probably something loose inside or a threading stripped somewhere.
Got a silver Mak 20 SEA loaded with 100 JB hollow. Was planning on fishing 30lbs at strike. Seemed reasonable
I noticed though that freespool...

What is the line rating on the Seeker black steel 6480? Is that the 30-50?
Talking to an old timer, he mentioned he applied a wax to his rods after every use. Sexual innuendos aside, does anyone do this and if so, what...
Price? Will you sell separately ?
Sent you a text
Fathom 12 star drag, hands down. 25lbs of drag and I've beat up a ton of fish with it as 20lb outfit.
He is like an encyclopedia. Great to see you opening day, Steve and to meet Tony. Ill be back on Sunday.
It's 95 bucks to have your fathom blue printed. I spoke with the guys at cals. The freespool performance at high levels of drag post service is...
Looking for Grafighter 800h or comparable 8ft to use as 40lb bait stick. Doesn't matter if it has reel seet. Sub $200 if possible.
What is this rod rated?
Will you sell separately?
Can you post or send line ratingw?
You should send that reel in for service. How long have you had it? 12lbs of drag at strike on a reel capable of producing near 40 at full, is...
4:8 gears are great. Great cranking power and I feel like the jigs swim better than the standard 6:1. Just an FYI, the 4:8 gears will be a bit...
Go star drag. I have a 12 that I fish with Berkley Big Game 20 and top shot 15lb fluorocarbon . If you are exclusively fishing 15lb test, a 2...
How do you clean your penn reels after use,properly? I typically rinse not spray my star drags down with the hose and then leave them to dry.
Thanks much, Guys !

How do you figure that? I have fished with this rod for 4 years and never broke a rod tip. In fact, in all my years of fishing, I have never...

Does anyone have any videos or tutorials on how to put in the new fathom gear sets from pro challenger?
Thanks for the help guys! I'm all set!
I bought my metaloid last year and I love it. However, last summer it started to skip when winding on heavier fish and I think I have...
Thanks Steve. I do have the Pro Challenger Set but I have not installed it because of worry over wear on the gears due to the different materials,...
Anyone have any experience with these? I ordered a set from Alan Tani for my 25n but I have yet to install it. I know it is hardened...
12 is alot more narrow. See the pic
Get the 12! I have a 25n too and the 12 is by far more heavily fished. What are you trying to catch? 15 and 30 are different widths. I returned it...
Got this one today on my Fathom 12. 30lb yellow. I absolutely love this reel. Since Friday, I've caught 3 yellows on this reel.....a 20 pounder,...

Sweet! I'm jealous. Do you remember how much 40lb spectra you got on there? how much izorline?
Thanks much for the Suggestions !
Anybody have any recommendations for rods in terms of length and rating? Looking to fish as a 20lb setup for calico and yt.
How much of the 40lb spectra were you able to fit on there?
Just curious. What species do you target with yours setup the way it is? 50 is pretty heavy for so such a small reel. Then again, they put out a...
Thanks much for the info!
Looking to upgrade my 501 Jigmaster as a dedicated 20lb set up/calico and for flinging anchovy assuming they show up again in force.Can't decide...
Thanks much. I bought the 30 but then returned it. I pick up the 25n tonight. Even though I bought the 30 to replace a 30 size defiance , it was a...
How much line can you fit on the 25n ?Looking to spool min3
How do you have yours rigged up as far as line and what not?
Thanks alot guys!
Thanks much! I was just worried that the 30 would not free spool as well as the 25n thus it would not be as good a jig stick or a live bait stick....
Also want to use the 30 occasionally as a live bait reel
Thanks much for the reply!. I just wanted to make sure I would be able to throw the iron just as far as my friend's 25n. I saw your old...
Anyone know if there is a any difference in Free spool between the two? Just got a 30 for the iron setup (sold out of 25).
Outstanding,that helps alot! I was wondering whether to go with a 30 instead of the 25n but it sounds like the 25n did the trick. I just ordered a...
I am looking to upgrade my jig reel. Currently I use a Penn Defiance 30 (no level wind) 6:1 but I think that it's too fast a retrieval...
This may seem like an obvious question, but how do you recommend cleaning your reel after use? Getting the grime and scales off the reel? I have...
Thanks for the info !
No. Only the 60 has lugs
What is the difference between the Warfare and a Defiance 30n (no levelwind)?
