Redid the Turks head it had from the factory. It was actually pretty terrible. These things are so addicting but time consuming .
Lmao!! Jeff!!! What’s up brotha!
Wow. Talk about labor of love. How many hours did that take?
This is how it starts it’s life.
Sure but you won’t like the price lol. I work on reels for a living and I’m much faster at that. If you’re serious let me know.
Serious question, How do you determine if it’s upside down? Or is this a joke like a left-handed screwdriver?
Thank you sirs. I will say I understand why people charge what they do to put these on. It can be time consuming
[ATTACH] So I decided to give this a try. Just looking for some feedback as to what the pros think. Thanks
You won’t be disappointed. Jeff takes great care of his gear.
Sent you a text
I’ll take the 6480h
Brown or gray?

Well this is going to last all of five minutes LOL
Probably on some firm ground

I don’t think these are the offers Steve was expecting LOL.
Did you just start a bidding war $40 over your asking price? Lol.. this is about to get good .. I hope you have some thick skin sir.
Sounds like an official email LOL

That poor 12 heavy frame is gonna take a hit in sales on the west coast. Do you have the dimensions and/or weight for the new reel?
Finally!! I thought I was going to have to wait to use it next season.
You are correct sir. They are better than the trinidads. There are a few reasons why mechanically the design is better.

Up for the late crowd
I hope he gets every penny. Thank goodness we still live in a free market.
Depends on which bearings you’re referring to.
Beautiful reel. I hope you have thick skin LOL. Let the fun begin.
Btt with price adjustments.
I’m sure it’s out there somewhere. Good luck.
If that’s the original wrap then it’s definitely a LB rod .
Seriously. If I didn’t have a few already I would have taken it.
Btt new rod added

Good deal. Shouldn’t last long
How do you know if the drags are fine if you’ve never opened it up?

Most metal bodied reels today are aluminum. Raw aluminum would not fare well in...
Ed, the saltist is pending sale for this Sunday but if it falls through I will set up shipping with you.
Hard to tell from the pics but is it green or black?
It is. With new carbon fiber drags it produces a lot of smooth consistent pressure and torque on tough fish.
Jeff, yes I still have the sealine. I’ll send you a PM
Looks like you missed one by 10 mins. Right before your post.
Thank you sir for the kind words. I have one more along with the other reels listed.
