The 527, 528, & 529 are overlooked rods that are hard to come by, but once you fish them you won't want to ever let it go.
Great to to stick as well.
Free Trulines tomorrw :p
So what you're saying is the rod will never be used with dead bait, or lures?
So what you're saying is the will rod never be used with dead bait.

Sent you a PM
Still haven't seen any reports of the local caught long fins, but the season is still early. :)
Looks like a green glass, GLW trade
Yes they made the 527, 528, & 529 beef sticks in yellow
Well, albacore season is right around the corner, so which boat is going to find them first?
Wait a minute I ran out of popcorn
This will go quick!
These clamps will fit all aluminum bases except 220 and 322
That, my friend, is a stump puller. GLWS
That will be great, and I'll provide my phone #818-220-0389.
Thank you very much!
What is the length?
They were the shit reels a few years back, and still are a great fish killing reel.
Someone jump on that 610H before I do. Can you say wahoo!
This is a sweet 40 - 50# stick that comfortably brought an 85# tuna to gaff.
I would like to buy the Boomer, but I'm in a wheel chair for a while, so can't pick it up. I'll be happy to pay for shipping to:
You don't return msgs, so how do you expect to sell anything.
I asked about the Boomer
what color blank new wrapped lemon lami 9ft 30-60 jig stick $350
Are you looking for the full length or 6' 11"?
Yes Tiburon makes an after market clamp, but Diawa never offered a clamp.
This reel does not use a clamp
Now that's a man's yo yo rod for the big boys.GLWS
Very nice work it shoulb gobbled up quick
Aw shucks fin you only sell me 1 of those fishin poles ;)
Here it is in Feb and the hoos are still hanging at the Rocks. Great report!
That's a sweet deal
That will fund your 401K GLWS
Saw Blake's post, but it's not the heavy one.
40 for iron on the tails
Stupid old man, yes 528
As the heading says. They made different versions of this rod, but the one I'm looking for has a lot of glass in the butt.
That rod has seen some work, good bait stick
Another application these reels are excellent for is chunk fishing.
Do you know what the gear ratios are for this stump puller? :)
Thanks Franky that is a unique Truline and am thrilled to own it.
Best bet is to check out Long Fin Tackle. Your choice of rods for this application seems a bit short but doable.
Are you giving it away?
so sad 7X!
Good deal, someone upgraded the bars and reel base. GLWS
Maybe a Zebco
I want to buy 300 DSV's, and have PM'd you.
His curing box was 9'
I know they made a thin and thick wall 528 and yours looks like thicker would fish 40 for bait on tails and school tuna.
I'll throw my 2 cents in for a fine dropper loop or yo yo reel for a inexpensive, entry level fisherperson.
It's kind of like another fishing rod, but different. o_O
Pretty fair price for your reels that pretty much covers what they were intended for.
XR = 6' 11", XR7 = 7'
Someone should jump all over this. What great yo yo/bait stick.

See if he'll allow you to pull the butt caps and unwind some of the cork tape to see what's written on the rods.
What color is the blank? For sure it's not a Truline, John couldn't cook anything over 9'. What size tip does it have?
If you hook into a biggy, and he wants to go to Hawaii then as a last resort put your thumbs on the line and press down on the foregrip, then pull...
Is it suggested to oil the pouches? It softens the leather, and keeps the saltwater from drying them out.
Getting back to normal fishing after the El Nino. Some boats get the hunks, and some get the skunk.
Those questions are way over my head. You'll need input from boat owners.
Sounds like one of your ground wires may have pulled out of the banjo clip (if that's what you have crimped on your wire), so check that wire is...
And these would be glass rods?
So, how's the albacore season going? Good counts in our southern waters? :nopity:
Those rings pictured do look a little skinny.
I, and all the guys in our charter group who have fished with Steve and Jonny are in total shock. We all had a special relationship with Jon as...
If they're the real deal. :cool:
Those are Dennis Braid copies of Intruders.
Sorry for your loss, but have to say this, don't give them any edge, lock your vehicle up and set the alarm any time you walk away.
He was living out in Solidad Cyn, but that was a long time ago. Last time I talked to him he was fighting the MLPA's.
I've PM'd him to take care of his needs, so Drumford you can go back to your corner again. :rolleyes:
Do yourself a favor and have Cal bump the reel up to handle 50#. I had 4 of them for many uses.
Strip it down to the blank, sand with 500 grit, and shoot it with Krylon UC clear.
There may have been some foreign material hit that original...
Not too much close by for fishing, but they have some wild pig hunting in the red light district.
To me this is the best tip of all, put your tuna in pint or half pint jars that are really clean then (very important) fill to just over the top...
If you still are in love with the 332 then send it to me, and I'll restore it, and only charge you for the any parts replacement. Yes, I do have...
Old fashion greed! Buy low, sell (too) high makes wonder what the person thinks of our fishing group.
Started fishing at the west end of Anacapa around 6 AM, and got into a very steady bite of 12 - 20 tails, all on big dines. Six passengers had a...
I would think choice would even be more tender, but what do I know.
I live in Burbank, so where is this restaurant? PM me if you like.
Better check out the map cause it's Benito Is.
Give it to your executor of your estate.
Which ever you choose, never cut anything but spectra/braid line with them.
6X rods are 8', and a friendly piece of advice, watch out for this seller.
Well, that's a fine how do you do. How about, at least, telling him the web site he should be searching for. :appl:
And be careful to not to buy one made in the early 90's. The butt end of the rod will tell you if it was rolled tightly.
All right guys, I know for a fact there are bluegill tuna fish out there, and Lord knows they need our protection especially from all the drought...
What beautiful set of some of the most popular rods John made, and to top it off being offered by a very fair price. Having a hard time not...
And the variable clicker control has been removed, so better free spool.
Those reels were actually made for one of the sport fishing boats in San Diego. Carl gave about 100 reels to a number of boats, and identified...
The original bridge sleeves had a 8 tooth cogs on the bottom of the bridge sleeve, and that carried over to the early G series with the 3 stack...
Go to Alan Tani's website, Bryan Young sells a 5 stack drag conversion kit that will jack the drags up on this reel to allow you to fish 40#, and...
I'll let you in on a little secret, just fish with a butt hooked sardine with Knot to Kinky, or straight single strand wire. You don't have to...
Your reel appears to be a Valley Mfg model, and that's a very good thing cause he did make some great improvements in the Newell reels. GLWS
Who's signed up for the Jun 19, trip?
Absolutely fish them, that's what they were made for.
I used my D7 to wench a 3,500# safe out of my garage.....almost true story.;)
John Collins did not write Truline on his rods, but the first B is for blank, and I suspect LB is live bait or light bait rod. Is it pretty soft?
Nice looking rods, too bad they don't have the correct Truline labels.
All TNT's are going to blow up which is probably the case with this rod. If it hasn't snapped at the tip then the butt could be extended to obtain...
Our red rock fish are Vermillion.
First, why did you have to cut HT100's to work in a Newell? If you buy HT100 for a Jigmaster they bolt right in. Second, the old Blackies and P...
Any 500 series will do, but must be left hand retrieve. Please let me know what you have.
To truly test the drags the reel should be mounted on the rod you intend to fish it on then run the line from the reel thru the guides. Use a...
What a sweet rod that's so versatile. I have the 79F & 79XF, and these sticks kill fish. GLWS
A friend of mine had an Allmand boat back in the late 60's powered by a V6, then converted to a V8, but this was more like a cabin cruiser.
Saw the same story on Yahoo today, so another conformation. Big O'sumbitch!
Jason, don't remind us how far we've come from "Dial Up". 8-)
Thank you Bill for the video. You say you used 500 grit for the final sanding, but which grit (wet/dry) do you use for the first sanding?
Just finished stripping a Truline rod, and now want to refinish it, so would like some suggestions on the correct way. I've had rods that were...
I think they're all out of these kits, and are not making anymore. Greg Chow was selling them on ebay, but they're all gone.
Same here, so went with a Calstar GG6480 for surface iron chucking, and it was a lot less $ than the Seeker.
A+ for the effort, and your time will come.
Deburring tool. Just spin it around the hole, and it pushes the ring around. Easier if you remove the ring.
The rod was an original 8', and anyone can wrap factory colors. If you were to remove the butt cap and cork to expose the writing on the rod it...
Just my opinion, but that's a lot of $ for a rod that's been cut down.
Don't think it's cobra glass, but it should fish 40# as a bait stick, and can be used as a yo you stick.
Chris Keiterling bought the molds years ago, and was poring them at my shop in Burbank. Got snookered by a slime ball Butch Chapman so shut the...
Launch fee, $7.50, comes with a free car wash.
Didn't cost the owner of the boat because those cases shown on her program are paid out of a fund. The only thing he was out was the time spent...
Thought someone would jump all over your offer. The 229 is one of the most versatile reel Carl made.
Got them in the mail today, and want to thank you very much.
Are you looking for a stock 533, or one that's been narrowed, and which make and model ie - P, No Letter, C, S, or the rare V?
It might help if you told us which Trini this handle goes on.
Got your msg. Those are the ones I'm looking for. Can't believe Tib doesn't have any spares.
Thanks so much!
Did you look for remember me, or stay logged in?
I'll give him a try. Tib has none in stock.
The harness lugs fit all the Tib's SSTs, and I've got a 30-80 that needs the harness lugs.
Nothing is available from Valley Mfg, so far, and it's doughtfull there will be any parts coming out of there till he sells the business.
Don't remember them ever making them, but they did have the bridge sleeve, and gears for them.
Was this stuff in a green bucket? :hali_ruahahaha:
Horny little bastards aren't they?
The "enviors" folks are beating up on the wrong area. They need to go over there, and get their asses shot for snooping around.
The lower gear ratio does help with the retrieve on larger tails, but the drawback is if you're going to throw surface iron then you'll have to...
Bob is a fisheman, and very likable, will go out of his way to help, but I've found Rich has the personality of a rock, and only has dollars at...
You would not get that service out of Rich Duncan at Tib.
For local, 3 B trips, I have the Albackcore back pack.
For the albacore (extinct)/blue fin 2/3 day trip one box that fits in my jacket pocket...
Back in the day these things were on fire, but time marched on with newer lighter, stronger, and better gear selections kind of obsoleted these...
Got what you're looking for.
Hey, I recognize the picture of the guy in the photo. Seen him before, but can't remember where or when.
What you trying to do, blow my cover? I bought 3 Shikari's from Moe at Fisherman's Depot for, $80 ea. ie - 809 (2) & a 909, green blanks for...
cow man, did that go over your head?
Berkley Big Game came first. I still have some spools of pink that Carl gave me.
If you can't locate them at the big box I have the long ones. You'll have to send me (PM) you name and address. I'll give you the screws, will...
Decent price for a re released P220 with (hopefully) greased drags that will handle all inshore species, and school bluefin. GLWS
Summary: Blackie 322-F, 79-81, P322-F, 82-85, G322-F, 86-91, "No Letter" 322-5, 92-94, C series didn't have any 322's, some 3 blank blank -5...
Absolutely, it is just as popular as the TNT for that application.
Length would help?
I have an Intl 80ST, 2 spd, Cal's magic touch. If you're interested PM me.
Of course I did, but we charter with 8, and not all are heavy iron users.
Those are called sex nuts (really), and depending on the thread size other mfg's have the.
We'll be out Wed, and hopefully get on them. Dropper loop?
What's wrong with your nuts Franky?
Thank you! Finally figured that out yesterday.
How do I get the Control Panel on Win 10?
Oh, wait, it's a left handed reel.
Yo you, maybe for shallow, but doesn't have enough for deeper drops.
Looks like they're closing the doors:...
The Trini 30 picks up more line per crank than a 40, and is more comfortable to fish with because it's smaller diameter, and a bit lighter.
Now, it's time for me to be greedy cause I made most of them floating around out there. (Carl didn't think there was any use for skinny reels)...
Good suggestion, I didn't pull on that one, but will. It'll be 6 weeks before my rod is done, so have time change my mind. What little mind I...
Yep, your bearing(s) are toast, so they need to go. Send me your name and address, so a set can be sent to you for, $8.
Newell made a conversion kit for the 501 that bolts right into a 1/0.
Fished D8's for many years, and found most of them pulled differently.
Pulled on a BTG 6480 today, and ordered a blank. The 64 series always did...
Yep, brought home a blue meat Ling, so wifey took one look at it and said, "I hope you aren't expecting me to eat that". Battered and deep fried...
Thanks for all the input guys. I'll be looking at a BGT 6480 tomorrow at Bob Sands. I don't spend as much time hefting iron as I once did, but...
This fat, old man can't handle the 9 & 10' jig sticks on the fighting end, so thought I'd step down to 8', fishing a 332 reel.
Would love to.
Well now my computer geek friends explains it all. Firefox has a square fart, and some massaging will have to be performed to make it snappy....
FYI got cable speed, got 12 Megs Ram, and for your STFU comment you sound like some grumpy old fart that likes starting a pissing contest....
Goddammit, upgrade your servers, or control your greed. This website is getting more and more bogged down from all the bullshit adds that have to...
Da butt man, da butt. How much glass is in the butt? I got the black with mucho glass in the butt. Sure it will put the hurt on the hoos.
They still hang horse thieves don't they?
Hang it on the wall, or over the fireplace in rememberance of your Grandpa.
base and bars are the same.
Rare to find one without cracks in the side plates. GLWS
Carl was given Berkley Big Game mono to base the reel capacities.
The Blackies came out in 1979, and the brochures came out at that time.
What a fantastic write up! Thank you, it was as if I was there. The last time I was in PV was 1988, and they just completed the marina in 1986....
The brochure says the 440 is 2 3/4" wide, I think they meant the 344.
Anyone catch the error, and if you did post it up.
The aluminum reel base will bolt right in, but if you have one of those reels with the through frame screws, then you will need 4, 5-40, 3/8"...
Remember, one size fits all (at least when it comes to condoms).
WTF my mommie gave me permission to view this link.
Do you know the gear ratios.
Took quite a while before finding mine, but they are a sweet that will handle 40, even 50.
Lamiglas made more than one version of this rod from...
If, in fact, it is an ocean otter then some animal hugger dropped it in the area because there hasn't been any migration this far south. Last...
Our BD hall monitor at work again. Drumford get over it!
That's the way most reels operated. I'd be concerned if the pinion was jumping away from the spool when its under load.
Jef, get a clue buddy, those models are POS series, and you'd be lucky to get a hun out of them.
Probably just the pinion gear catching up with the shoulders on the spool. Put your thumb on spool and wind the handle, if it isn't engaged you...
The handles with no holes are from the Blackie series.
Got the pics and forwarded them to Ed. Waiting for response.
I leave the top bar out anyway cause it just gets in way of your thumb. I just run a 40 thread screw thru and put a nut on the screw then Dremel...
Why didn't you just mill off the outside edges of the bars, drill and re tap. You would end up with a more accurate length.
they were a good rod back in the day, but before buying I would want to pull on them to see if they fit in my arsenal.
I needed a Lamiglas decal, and found them on:
What is the color of the Lamiglas rod label? Rod is a 528, 8'.
Did you get them?
Damn that is a sweet rod. I own 3 of them, fish 40 & 50 on them for hoos, tails, and sea bass, and if a decent tuna comes long it will die too.
Before I make ready for the long range trips the iron needed for wahoo can vary quite a bit, so with feedback on what they're been chewing on is...
You can put a little dog leg in the tension spring. This will do 2 things, it will put less pressure on the dog, and it will not rub on the main...
What ever you do, do not use any chemicals. Single edge razor blade, and just take your time. What was written on the rod was coated over with...
That's so cool to have that rod all these years, and be able to get some info to identify it. Fish it hard brother! Forgot to ask if it's 7 or 8'?
Go to Squidco, they may have a lead on what you're looking for.
Are you selling both Pluton's for, $275?
Not yet, but they're coming. They've reached Mag bay, and are moving norte.
I have the same dilemma, and can't think of any alternative use for them.
I have Truline and Harnell labels, so let me know what you're looking for. They're the real labels, and I get, $3 each.
You've backed off the drag adjustment knob too far, so yes it's stuck, but put the know in a vise, and take a big screw drive to loosen it up.
Let me buy your reel. I've been waiting 3 months for Diawa to send me the 5.1:1 gears. I live in Burbank so we may be able to hook up to do the...
This reel has hot rodded drags, and will fish 40 comortably for the big tails.
What a kickass reel for the school tuna, and grouper. I bought a brand new 30T and had Cal do his thing on it. When the fishing conditions are...
Had this reel in my inventory, and decided to go thru it completely to sell on BD. It's very well used, but it has the 4 drag system, flushed and...

EDM? That will absolutely get them out, and most cases save the threads.
Thanks much for the link. I'm looking for a decal (label) for my Lamiglas.
It isn't a biggie, but it does have a clicker, and it's a damn fun reel on the tails. Oh, and did I mention it comes with carbontex drags.
First let me say I don't know diddly squat about wrapping rods, but the guy that used to wrap my rods would first spline the rod to find the...
Yes, you can probably drop over to cool off, but the rest of the day you'll have that shitty feeling salt film all over your body.
Tib is making a very nice SC10 clamp, and is available for a reasonable price at many tackle stores.
I'm being honest when I say the fit and finish on the reels displayed leave a lot to be desired. They may excellent reels, and will have some...
Free cane poles, all you can carry, tomorrow. :frehya2:
Whale farts. You know sounds travel much farther in water. :D
So, with the season right around the corner, the good stuff is starting to come out of the closet.
Do you realize how many bottles of wine I'll have to consume just to get the cork for this rod. LOL
If you have a friendly machinist the rod could be put in a mill vise, and mill a slot on each side of the reel seat.
Back in the day the Lupe was kinda automatic for 4 days, or more, but with all the BS from Mexico it has disappeared from my want list. Went...
Go buy Windows 7 pro.
Give them a call, and they'll send one out. Happens all the time.
Note: Next time put the reel in gear so there's more posts for those springs...
The LM9 is 8' 6" from the factory.
I've found jigs that have a slight offset hole at the top swim a little better, and having a sharp edge around the perimeter.
Would recommend you call Okuma for this info. These screws may require a torque drive screwdriver, but they will be able to tell you, and it may...
Nice gaff job.
Down at Colnet fished 350' deep with heavy jigs (not much current), and were catching cow cod, and other critters, so the answer is yes you can.
Hope he pulls thru okay.
Yep, drumford is our hall monitor. LOL
I need those and a siren for the dipshits driving 60 in fast lane. :devil:
If you like the way it pulls, and you can see an application it will work very well for then have the darn think wrapped, and kitted and go fish it.
I think he was pretty clear as to what happened, and the following link that was posted pretty much sums it up. And, yes it's it's personal and...
That makes a super trolling rod, or bait rod for the bluefin. Really good versatility in this rod, and they don't break.
That's a man's rod, but it will kill fish without even taking a deep breath.
No, you sufficiently cleaned up the rod butt, so any writing should have been down there, but may be very faint. John used a Marks-A-Lot back in...
I take it you're not interested in my Hybred 809.
And don't forget to check your closets. :D
Take a small screwdriver to slip under the butt cap, and lift it away from the blank. Work all the way around till the cap loosens enough to...
Round ends facing out.
If you can't locate a black side plate you could always buy a complete reel, or unless sentilmentallity is involved you could switch it out to the...
It helps if you know someone with a lathe. Have them chuck either the plain lead torpedos, or chrome. Start a cut into the material about the...
Nope, shot out of the mold by Keith Gross. Too bad he used the wrong mold.
Perfect P322-F, $200. Perfect P332-F, $200. All ready to fish, with the correct original components.
Hey, it's modify, adapt, overcome. HOORAH
Check with Penn Service Dept., but if they don't have it then Boca Bearing will. You'll had to give them specific measurements of the ID, OD, and...
I have a number of Boomer rods, and can't say enough good things about them. They are even strong enough for the giant bluefin on the east coast.
Thanks guys, I do have 130, and 150 Momoi, and also have 400 for the trolling leaders. Will see if the bite increases with the fluoro.
Posted this on Chit Chat, but thought would be good on this thread. Am going to tie fluoro direct to some iron, and was looking for opinions of...
Any recommendation for fluoro line test to iron for hoos.
Most definitely is the 105 that has had extensive mods performed, namely going from a dry stack exhaust to a wet exhaust, all water and fuel tanks...
You have to remember Collins bought his fiberglass from anyone who had it. Back in the day fiberglass was the new thing on the block, and although...
Ordered some tonight, prices seemed very reasonable.
Then there are those rods that have been refinished to the point the markings have been totally sanded off.
Think it's $10 per day.
Patience, and don't plan on getting any fishing time in for yourself.
Go down the beach, fish the kelp line.
This will make the 9th year that the albacore don't show. They are the best tablefare of the tuna family, plus they are great home canned.
I should have mentioned in my initial post the rod had been freshly refinished and wrapped, so no refinishing required.
Second, to me the rod...
Just wanted to get an idea of what it would cost to strip a rod, reuse the guides, install a fuji graphite reel seat, X wrap over cork tape, and a...
It's all about feel. Pull hard, and steady to get the feel of the rod. Listen for any sounds the rod may make. Make sure it's a Collins rod.
Little smaller in diameter, but thicker glass in the butt. Are the tips similar, and do they bend about the same?
There is a company out there that's making gears, and they sell on ebay, but don't know if they're making 3.6.
There's a 220 3.6 on ebay
Thanks for all the leads fellas. I'll pursue them with hopes to change out my buggered up 50T frame.
Think Baker made these, but have no way to contact him. Tib made them, back in the day, but they weren't too popular. PM me for any leads.
I would be kinda nice to tell us the dates, and how many spots on the boat.
It's great they have these devices to keep the pump pumping. Speedy recovery!
The Penn Intl 50S comes with 2 speed from the factory.
Just refund the money for the reel + some postage for him to return it to you, and I'm sure he'll let us know the situation has been resolved.
Take it to a bead blaster, then coat it with etching primer, sand, and paint.
I apologize for my indisgression, but never could stand PT'r people.
Your set up is great, and just right for right handed wrapping. :)
No point it's just the phrase "you would be surprised" is used a lot by government people as if the average person hasn't a clue about life. At...
That there is the problem. The rod is probably going to stand around, gathering dust, and will not be fished, yet for what ever reason some people...
You work for the government?
Damn man it's tough losing a member of the family, we just lost our Babe of 15 1/2 years, and what a sweetheart she was. So sorry for your loss.
Now, even after you said, "Like new Lexa 400 hs selling for $175. Mint condition" someone is going to ask for pictures. :D
For all that are contemplating stripping all that old, stretched out line is a great idea, and well worth the investment for the upcoming season....
Perfect, for those (hopefully) tight places.
My God that brought back a shit load of memories. I was there, when it was live, and still moves my soul. Thanks to Pandora I still get the fix.
Carl was long dead when these reels were produced. Unless you were there at the time of manufacture then you really don't know what you're...
Ever heard of Carbontex?
Didn't John use a white felt tip on the green (black) rods?
Hate to burst your bubble, but spoke to the seller, and this reel was as produced at Valley Mfg. other than the handle changed out to a 600 series...
The side plates Keith gave her to sell were not V521, most were P500 series side plates without any logo in them.
Proof will be when it's opened up and doesn't have the 5 stack drag in it. I was associated with Keith when he took my 2" wide, and said he will...

Our charter master tried...
They also make a 5:1, but don't know if it's available with the power handle. I have the 7:1, and ordered the 5:1 to fish the bigger tails.
And what model would that be?
Calstar Boomer or Boomer Jr. 5 1/2 all glass hooked up with a 2 spd reel.

Hey, those are very close to being my colors. It's just missing the green accent.
What's the gear ratio of your reel?
You can go to Best Buy, and let them know who your ISP is, and they'll sell you a compatible modem with wifi. You'll probably have to contact your...
That's a very fair price for a couple of classic rods.
I'm sure you've seen the Fuji line because it blends so well.

Pretty darn good yo yo reel, with a 5 drag system. GLWS
I've got that same rod in factory wrap, 25-30 bait stick, green glass (black).
You want, $150 for both reels?
Couple names come to mind on the SOA, and that is Jimmy and JP. Couple of pros that are right with you to the end.
That's a pretty good fish bite, but did you get any frostbite?

Got 2 of these for bigger tails, and found them to be bulletproof, and a kick in the ass to fish with. On top of that Okuma will take great care...
There's got to be a shitload of stolen kicker motors floating around Washington. There's got to be a way to secure them to the boat to discourage...
This would normally go pretty quick, but this time of the year you're competing with the Christmas shopping, and expendable cash is going quickly.
People don't realize how versitle this reel is, and you've got it priced just right. GLWS
Bout 3 years ago I fished a D7 and XR7, and fell in love with glass again. Forgot how smooth the bend was yet provide all the power you needed for...
Just my opinion, but the G series has proven to be the best for the application you've described. It casts very well, it is maintenance free, and...
You didn't mention how old these rods are. Lots of older rods were finished with Flex Coat that either yellow with age, or get a white dull look...
Go for it! You'll have a ball, and create another great memory.
That is a toad amber jack. Were you able to weigh it?
You found him. :)
No instagram, but count me in. A friend has a pair of these glasses, but really needs Rx lenses.
You could try using a humidifier to raise the moisture level in your room.
Easy, get rid of the accessory.
Good old baking soda is a great deordorizer.
And this would be a left handed reel?
I'm guessing it has to do with guns sold in Kalifornicate can not have magazine that holds 10 rounds or more. Manufacturers are not going to make...
And what caliber might your gun be?
We're going out on the Tak for a day of fishing the checkerboards. Wind may have churned up the water, but Steve Kelly will find some willing...
Really admire your talent and patience; a work of art.
I'll try to get the guy's phone number here in Burbank. He's THE expert on the LC's. He bought and brought a LC pickup from South Africa.
I'll end this BS by letting you know I built this reel from parts in my inventory, so much for the azz fuck. This is a work of art, but that...
If you can't afford it then why ask how much I'd sell it for. If you don't like the price then just move on.
I want a rediculous price for this one of a kind Newell, like 500.
One of the cheapest is old fashion tap water. Open the reel up on the left side, pull the spool, sprinkle everything with water, and after you...
Just sold some of these, but I do have a P322-F that you might be interested in:
I've got the original Larry Howard, Excaliber's in spinning and doodlin rods. I know, I know you want pictures, but that's not going to happen...
I can do better than that, I'll have jerr fax it over to my 3D printer. :cool:
Now, that was awesome!
Cheapest investment you can make in any fishing situation. :deadhorse
And handle nut cover. Like the ABU.
We called that "butchering on the hoof".
That's what these forums are for; taking care in time of need.
Yes, they are the most comfortable boot we've found, but as a word of caution, just wear them for fishing, so they'll last a long time. The soles...
We fished Cedros on our 10 day for zilch. As the previous poster said the water is too hot. They're having a little better success at Benito Is.
Now he's joined the fraternity. That just means he's owed one. :)
Thanks for the correction, and you are correct these the real deal. Just like the Winchester ammo displays.
91450, 92667, O'Shaunesies (sp), et all. Very few shops had these posters, and they were so cool.
Wow! That's a lot of man hours, and the outcome is beautiful. Good job!
Put your little guy in God's hands, He can work wonders.
Got them on ebay:
Darn good observation.
This may well be a Valley Mfg reel and well worth what you're asking.
Investment? Collecting? People buy Newells to fish, and have been fishing them for over 36 years, so what the hell difference does it make if...
Greedy people will never learn nor do they want to even think about it. It's all about the money, and after the resource is gone they'll find...
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in
some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report...
Stump socks (worn by amputees) work really well for storing your reels, and can be purchased a most medical supply stores.
OOHRAH! Way to go Jerr. Those skinny's are a kick in the ass.
The big box stores have the metric screws in many lengths. Take one of yours in and match up the diameter and thread.
Girly politicians in a girly state. :Death_To_Above:
Since we're all throwing every manufactured line out there into this mix, I'll submit my choice based on 20 years of success using Momoi Hi Catch...
Going on the SOA 8 day leaving 11/1. Anyone signed up for this trip?
Just a note: bring dropper loop setups. Water is hot and the bite is deep...
6480 comes to mind, or what the hell go with a D8. :-)
My old machinist/friend had that procedure performed, and lived to 85 enjoying a very active life.
Love those reel seats, but don't remember who made them.
I think they'll run out in the Pacific Ocean to find some fish. :)
Jerry, when did Adam Marks buy the store?
If you are running 3 rod then the 2 outside should be 25-30' back, and the center rod 5-10' further back to form a V pattern. Of course wire the...
7691, 7692, 7731, 7732 etc.
Beautiful tool. Would like to see an lanyard on the end.
More from the entitlement society.
Later production reel, but nonetheless a very popular reel, and priced right.
Good price on a strong bait caster. I'm taking one down to Cedros for some fun with the calicos, and tails. It'll get it done.
Octagon, heavy butt, light tip, 10-40 would think its a 4X
Don't try to cook the thick fillets. Cut them length wise about 9/16" to 5/8" thick then you can either pan fry in olive oil or grape seed oil for...
That 4.2 makes a great yo yo reel. The 3.0 is pretty good for deep bottom fish.
Good day to be out there. Nice to see at least one of the CI boats looking for the tuna. Some fresh maguro, yummy!
Yep, put that thing on ebay for that price, and get more exposure. Good luck with auction.
Put these up when the tubbie's start showing, those are good prices.
One step for man, and one giant step for mankind. At least someone recognizes the need to cull the over abundance of a species.
Or, here we go again, buy a skinny Newell 500 series with 5.5:1 gears, or for yellowtail work get the 4.6:1 gear ratio. It's almost identical in...
That's not necessary, just slide the engagement lever all the way back to free spool.
Rinse the reels, towel them off, back off the drag, set the clicker, and put the reel in gear (this relieves the tension on the springs).
Sometimes the predator doesn't want any resistance that could hook up in it's throat. Sea Bass very commenly prefer fresh dead squid for the same...
Trying to find the secret section on how to delete msg's in my inbox.
Cikana's soles wear out pretty quick. Damn comfortable mid size boot for sure, but try to limit they're use just when you're fishing.
Saw a pair...
Geeze, I never knew Sabre made 540 graphite sticks. What color is it, and if it's yellow (faded) it is a glass rod, and depending on condition it...
Your YFT will come par boiled, so almost ready for the canner.
I'll let you know after I receive the reel. The early runs of the G series had the ss clicker hub. That's not the best spool because the spool...
Jumbo Jack, too bigga eat.
Went on Amazon and found these orthpedic shoes for $60 bucks, and they've been a blessing, plus they breath.
I went to a guy about 10 years ago...
I've just strung up the rings on a piece of cord, and sprayed with black primer in a rattle can. Lacquer base if you can find it.
Another problem with the basket weave is that it's difficult to keep the reel from moving side to side, nevermind the rough feeling, and using...
Fished the 4XC's for years catching albacore primarily on 15#, but no more than 20 on it. It should be 7' 6" in length. It appears to be a factory...
The newer P's produced in 2004 did not have the ss clicker button & ss jack handle knob. It does have the 3 stack drag in the main gear.
Fuck man, do like I do, fish naked, and if it gets too hot just have the crew hose you down. Added benefit is lots of rail room. :indabutt:
Or, "Looks like I picked the wrong day to stop smoking"
No dought, getting their fill of young seals and sea lions. Good on them!
5 years from date of manufacture
You want offers, put it on ebay. :picknose:
Kind of a loaded question, it really depends on the current.
Told him, over and over, quit sword fighting with those old rods. ;)
Nice three B combo at a very fair price. GLWS
Use a minimum of 250# multi strand, and buy appropriate sleeves that will be crimped tightly. Any good, independent tackle store will help you...
Hoos can be found anywhere from the Coronados to Anacapa islands, and anywhere in between, and by the way they like to hang out near kelp patties.
To all who troll, "USE WIRE"! There's wahoo out there, and they're eating trolled lures right and left.
Wow, it's good to know all you guys have all this gear ready to go, so I've decided to leave my tackle box home and just make use of all your...
Fair price for a great reel. GLWS
I understand it's gone thru the roof on price, but would like to know where the best price/delivery is.
One of the most popular reels in the Newell lineup. GLWS
I'm on the Excel, leaving 9/27, for a 10 day, and for what it's worth fishing south doesn't mean rats of any species. The skippers that run these...
Been using the Manley scale for many years to set my drags, and they've never failed me. There are cheaper versions out there, but have seen them...
Have you tried contacting Zodiak to see if they have patching material?
I thinks the word is circumnavigated, but does that have to do with the price of tea in China. :D
Better yet, is it going to have syncro's to smooth out the shifting?
It should be a $200-$300 rod easily, but guys putting out the money are stuck on all the newer graphite stuff, and most of us older guys have...
Don't believe natural gas has any smell to it, and that's why the gas company adds a chemical that gives it an identifiable order so you can...
Nothing like color coordinated fishing equipment. Yes sir, it'll make all the deckies go ooh and awe.
I call them high pockets because they seemingly can't reach where you put your hand in. I've asked them, "Do you plan on taking it with you when...
I'll check with my wrapper, he may have the heavy rod butt caps. I gave him a couple for my D7 & XR7, and I know he had some more.
If you want...
Because that's what they do on BD. It's quite unnecessary but it just the world we live in today.
Someone could explain Upload a File to the man...
I have a matched set of 4.6:1 gears for the 500 series. I want, $50 for the set, and if you're interested email me at: [email protected]
All ours were caught on fly lined (horse) sardines. You had to be a little patient before swinging.
The bait boat at Cisco's is broke, and don't...
Exactly the same size, but with much bigger drags. Dual purpose reel for the hoos ripping bombs or iron back to the boat, and for grumpy, fatso...
The only negative I can think of is the Pegasus bobs much more than other 65' boats I've ridden. Everything else talked about is right on with the...
Not the most popular reel of the Newell series, but they do fetch good $ on ebay. GLWS
LOL, thought Steve was going to blow a fuse, and rightfully so. I don't think either of the boats thought he was yelling at them.
Went on our Island Tak charter today, left at 4 AM and picked some horse dines. Headed over to the east end of Anacapa to coax some YT into...
What in the hell would anyone need a marlin for? Who's going to police the commercials with this "quota"? Take a lesson from the east coast...
The short answer is no if for no other reason it requires a special fitting be put in place to keep things from flying out of the shift mechanism,...
You can get the ceramic bearings direct from Boca for half that price, and tax free. There is a pretty good markup on the Cargontex drags as well,...
Next it will be grizzly bears, then saber tooth cats.
Do you service them yourself? If not, all the info in the world won't help. If you do service your reels then pull the drags, and if they're the...
Rod is sold, thanks Jimmy!
GG 90J, 9', custom wrapped, X wrap, fuji reel seat, perfection guides, and I believe it's rated 30-60.
Good guy price is, $150. I just can't...
I have a 12T that meets your criteria that was blue printed to fish 40# with Tib topless. $300 plus shipping if necessary. Would prefer you look...
You're saying the old IE is not compatible with 10? Or, there is a newer IE upgrade for 10?
Was anyone hollering "PULL" as they were released?
As you run thru the day to day operations on your PC(s) keep us fraidycats abreast of any glitches.
Yes, they're both 2 spd reels. I think they both have powerglides built into them. :nutkick:
Obed, keep an eye open for a 332. The drags and gears are the same in the 220 as the 332 but that's all that is similar. The 332 does hold more...
"I did not have sex with that woman Monica Lewinsky" :imdumb:
Here's a little yellowfin that ate a lively sardine attached to a Mustad 92677, 5/0.
Thanks for the link, and ordered packs of hooks last night. Will put the through the ringer on my 10 & 8 day trips this fall.
What a neat 25-30# rod for throwing bait at the school tuna, and tails of all sizes. Back in the old albacore days it was my go to rod when the...
If you've never fished an XR you will be pleasently surprised by the feel and action of these rods. They kill fish, not fishermen.
Don't let the facts get in the way of a good lie.
Well said Marine!
Remove drag cover by compressing one edge. You will see there are 4 tabs at the bottom of the drag cover. By compressing one side the cover will...
Why not go to the Longfin tackle store and review a wide selection?
Here's the help for the drags: The reel has 2 spring washers, and yes they should be installed () in this configuration. One is part #0267...
Just how many times did he say Nova Scotia?
Just the way I think, but if it's that difficult to pull a tag for this area I would think seriously about hiring a guide that's really familiar...
Again, I'm going to harp on this. It's the entitlement mentality that is pervasive in this country. Here's the logic, "Oh look, someone has left a...
I can't believe this rod hasn't sold. Where the hell are you going to find this technology for $130? These older GUSA rods are the bomb, and...
Of course the -1 means it is a 1 piece rod, but think it had to be extended at the butt cause their curing box would not take anything over 9'....
It's called entitlement, and it's just the way our society operates today.
You might let us know your budget for the equipment, desired rod length. Better yet go to a reputable tackle store like Savon, or Longfin to help...
10#'s of drag is very sufficient for 30 - 40# line. Go fish it, and don't worry about it. If, after your trip, you want to get more drag out of...
4 in Hawaii
I paid $400 for this reel, and felt it was a good deal. Will give it a go on my 10 day.
And now there's 34 out there. Maybe dipshit will make some more just to rake in a bunch of money. Hindsight is 20/20 could have grabbed some of...
That spread head was a little far north and west from where it normally resides. What was the surface temp out there, and were you near Cruz?
Wrap your logo on fiberglass! Very nice.
Was it the number of layers of glass rolled on the mandrel?
I have a green Shikari, 9' that almost looks black till it's out in the sun light, and when rotated the green pops out like jade.
I have a freshly wrapped BD7, Fuji reel seat, X wrap over cork tape, perfection guides, and carbide tip top. The rod blank was sanded, shot, and...
Give Matt at Salas, to see if he can help.
Cow killing machine. You would definitely want this on a fatso bluefin.
Geeze, that brings back a lot of good memories. We used to stop at Black Rock ranger station to get any info on the deer up in the meadow, and...
