Have 3 avets in various states of disrepair.
I think one works ok but could probably use some bearings and a cleaning, one is newer but frozen,...
Don’t let the rash fool you.
What these reels lack in paint job they made up for in durability for price .
I have six of them that I’ve been...
There were a few on eBay awhile back.
They’re getting scarce. No longer in production.
Damn nice work . Two thumbs up!
I think my buddy is going to take your rod.
He told me he’d actually fish if he gets it :)
Now I have to find something else to keep up.
Matt did see it first, but he has way too much shit now. And he doesn’t even fish ! :)
Seriously,if he doesn’t take it, shoot me a PM.
Looks like a nice gent
It’s not a scam
It’s real, I bought the boat. His shipper will deliver sometime next month.
He is away in the military and is selling boat for his...

There is a place to click on “ add coupon”
I’ve had this not work but it did today...
Just buying one.
It seems that whatever fishery you’re into is best done with a lighter rod. ( looking for 150g)
I have a bit of experience with...
Have you considered the magic eye?
The lighter rods work well for what I’m doing.
That 6’3”b white magic eye is a hell of a fun rod for lighter...
What day you figure you’ll ship my rod?
I’ve got a JDM saltiga 15 spooled up and ready to go . :)
If you don’t want to ship it I could meet you...
Newbie for eternity
Still interested if you’ll get off your ass and ship it . :)
Take it easy on me, I’m just funnin ya.
Is this a spinning rod or a conventional ?
THANK YOU LAKE .:)
thank you Lake :)
Arrived in the mail from CharkBait yesterday.
I need a reel to go on a new Daiwa proteus 6’4” rod. The rod is...
Care to elaborate?
Being able to see it will help you sell it.
Do you know what “ Japanese graphite”?
Spinning or conventional ?
Did this ever sell ?
I'm interested in the 20 if you can be persuaded to ship it to Boston,
Any interest in shipping the 20 to Boston ?
Why would you get rid of this Jewell ?:)
I have a saltiga 15,6:1-1 a JDM 15 5:1- A 20 6:3-1 and an old school 30T.
And I dropped an old school...
If I didn't have 3 already.
I love these reels.
Great price. This won't last long.
I played with one of these at a recent show. Very nice. Smooth.great price.
Rep told me they will be out with a low gear ratio soon too. I'd say...
Now that is cool.
Does this one have the clicker ?
I told the op I'd take it
Waiting to hear back
Sent you a PM
Great price on this,
I'm hoping someone buys it so it stops haunting me.
I already have one but another certainly couldn't hurt. :)
I also know Chris from reading years of his stuff on 360. It sounds like we have two straight shooters here.
One that made an unfortunate error in...
Can't believe this is still around .
This is supposed to be THE. slow pitch rod.
360 tuna is having some issues right now, but I'd bet someone...
I'm guessing they're conventional rods.
Nothing in your post identifies that.
Some pics of the guides ,reel seats, handle assembly might help move...
Sorry to bother you .
Sent you a pm.
Will your handles fit a 1st generation LX?
Got one of each of these, very nice jigs. They look even better in person than in the pics.
Good seller too, great communication,and shipped them...
I've often wondered if you could mix hardeners with another brand of epoxy or finish. I don't think I'd put it on a good rod but I use the...
Damn those are pretty. I might have to pilfer that color Combo for a personal build.
Stunning work .
Love the red with the cork.
Very nice looking work. As usual.
We miss your builds over on 360 Ralph.
Stop in and say hello sometime.:)
I've done a bunch of restorations in my time. Much more difficult than building something new,from scratch. Every one of them presents its own set...
Don't know if they are interchangeable
But I have a new one from a saltiga 30t
I don't use them.
Ok send 5
I'll take one 1,4,5 top to bottom if you still have them. Blue, pink , green .
Send pm where to pp
Very eye pleasing work .
Getting any blank " really hot" would scare the bejesus out of me.
I've had luck with double sided tape.
I like some of those Winn grips but man, they ain't givin em away . :)
Very aesthetic color combination.
Really nice work ,
I ain't from roun here:)
But I do know that there are a ton of very good,very informative rod building videos on YouTube. Just about anything you...
Gotta be honest, I know that they are a function feature but I'm not a fan of all the cord and turkhead stuff. This is actually one of the more...
If nothing else this is pretty cool to watch.
Definately some food for thought.
I've done several with wet sanding with HOT water. It worked out well for me.Rods are still going strong several years later. I refinished the...
I looked again it's a 10 not a 12
Here's the link anyhow.
I'm actually lioking for an 8 ....
Does this one have auto engage ?
I have the JDM model of this.
Fantastic little reels . Mine are smoother than the trinadads.
Beautiful rod from a great company.
If I was still chasing bluefin around this would be a definite consideration.
You should post this over on...
My guess is he means something like this :...
What are you replacing all the saltigas with, if you don't mind my asking. I bought your 15. New generation awhile back. Sweet little thing.
[ATTACH] I have a custom old school daiwa surf tournament that's never been fished
It's 10'10" it's a powerful rod.we used to use them to throw...
Sand paper,drywall screen.
Wow,been puttin them together for over 40 years and I've seen a lot of guides,including mildrums,solid carbides and even agates but I've never...
That's a damn interesting butt wrap .
What did you do there? Is that marbling in a different direction?
Puts me in the mind of an old graffiti hot...
What gm is the rod rated ?
Got the reel today!
Thanks Dan, beautiful little thing.
Two days, received on the right coast.
Nice. Somebody grab the last one.:)
Still interested in the 10.
stumbled on this on YouTube .
There's a lot of this type work around but to me,what really makes these wraps work is an amazing eye for what...
You got some great advice here .
I can't add more except I'm wondering about the gallon of finish.
Good lord that's a lot of epoxy .
Just thinking and no disrespect intended. Things are usually worth what the market will bear. If your stuff just sits maybe it's priced a tad too...
Are there k guides designed for both casting rods and spinning rods or are they a duel purpose guide used on either or?
That blank looks as thick as the guy holding its arm. Blue whale rod?
To me, a custom rod was for a guy that knew exactly what he wanted, through experience, and factory designers didn't offer a specific style rod he...
It wasn't easy and it ain't pretty but I made a couple of these and they are very functionable . I made them out of aluminum . They're on the...
Sounds like a blast.
Try one of those fish on a spinning rod next time. It's work but a hell of a lot of fun.
I agree with most of this. I have 7 of these saltists. I beat the hell out of them. One thing to watch for is the engage and disengage lever...
You might also look into "wet packing"
The reel.you really have to get the line on there tight.
Some guys used to let almost the whole line out...
You don't want braid on those reels .
130 or 150 ( some guys use 200)courtland green spot or similar. They sell already packaged top shots. I'd...
Get in line :)
Sent you a pm David .:)
I think I'm going to take you up on that $325.
Shipped if you still have this.I played with this reel today at my favorite shop.
Thanks for the reply.
Looks like a phone call to them is my only solution here.
Also looks like I'm going to have to get creative on the handle....
I have some Alan tani handles on a couple of my saltists. I bought the reels used with them. They're nice handles but to be honest, I like the...
I have a couple of these.
They have fished longer and harder than anything else I have owned . I catch a lot of fish and I'm very hard on reels. I...
I have more than all the reels I need,
But I'm looking for something to do a duel purpose. Something that could handle 30-40 lb...
Yea, what you guys are doing is different from what we do.
I fish my own boat in deep water for ground fish. And bait for bass.
That's a great price,
I'm just looking for one of these with the lower gear ratio or an original saltiga 20.
What's the gear ratio on this one?
I'd like to buy your saltists if you decide you can ship them.
