^ Yeah, know what you mean. I ended up getting four new okuma reels in the span of about 3 months this year. So far I've received two.
Lol. Missed the Pelagic Outfitters BF sale did you?
Can you provide more details?
Ok, that's understandable.
Just to confirm, are they doing the spectra for .01 cent filling or something else?
Oops, also Pelagic Outfitters. 20% off, free S&H and no tax....
There you go. Why change a good thing?
Since you insist on the metaloid, I would use the M-12 or better yet the new high speed andros A-12.
Thank you and all the other vets on the forum!
I'm sure the airlines love you too for that extra baggage.
So the Maximus charges you extra if you take your fish home?
Tooth pick? Nah, prolly replacement brain spike.

50# on the 5, either 60# or 65# on the 12.

Not yet. Bought it online and for some reason they have not received there supply of the M-5II yet.
Dang! I'm on a 2.5 dayer tonight. What are people catching theses 'hoos on? Going to have to bring my marauder.
Cool. I did not know that.
Sorry, my question was regarding free service and maintenance within the reel's specific warranty period. Is this available on all your reels?
So is that all reel lines, as long as they are under warranty, or just the makiaras?
Keep us posted.

Gotcha. Yes, for the single speed.

What? I'm not looking for fishng gear, I'm looking for a line winder.
Looks like it. I guess the rod building is just a side business. Damn.
When in doubt, topless is ALWAYS better. I would add visuals but I think you get the message. ;)
That's like the Whitman's Sampler of grips. :D
Nice bachelor pad.
Not to make light of a life altering event, but you know why divorces are so expensive? Because they're worth it!
I remember those Zebras. Never owned one tho. My first rod was an old Sabre spinner. Still have it.
Sounds like they're effective at the strip club. 8-)
Michelle, is that you? I didn't recognize you behind those Costa shades!
^ I know, but usually by now it's posted up in the "Spotlight" section.
Is it too early to talk about day @ the docks? I have yet to see anything on here.
I"ll take one too. Spoke on the phone.
Come on everybody, say it with me. Build off, build off, build OFF!
That was the lowest I have seen them for new ones anyway. GL
Try asking your neighbors. I had that happen to me once. Showed delivered and USPS was sticking to their guns. It never arrived at the house....

That was a Penn jigmaster replace? Doubt they had PG parts still. Just wondering.
I recently bought a PG255. After I put my "touches" on it, it spins what seems like forever. That thing is a tank too.
I'm interested if you include the clamp.
Please send me a pm. I'll give you my phone number and we can talk. I called you but you...
Does that silver one have a clamp?
I was lucky enough to grab two of the build kits Batson was selling at the fhs. Just need to get them built now.
This is something Okuma should pick up as standard. Afterall, it's just a push button not much different than what's on there now. Bet someone...
^ Awesome, thanks for the clarification Steve.
Will Penn have their own booth this year or share one again like last year? They didn't have a display per say. Hoping that's not the case this...

Careful, you will quickly find yourself owning all kinds of accessories.

Ok, I guess we're not then.

Congrats! What rod you pairing it up with?

Really? Looked like MSRP to me.
If you're on the east coast, there's only 2 places to get your reels.

That, and because the people want it. LINKY

The gun metals are nice. Everyone perfers the silver.

As long as you don't exceed 18 lbs of drag (w/ stock frame) you'll be fine. I have one that I've had for years now, going to do use 60 lbs on it.

Boca Bearings. You have to pull out your old ones and measure them to buy the equivant ones tho.
Rumor has it you can call and ask they use something else (for a couple bucks more).
Don't forget Baja Fish Gear. You just missed their big sale.
Wow, you come prepared.
Good luck on the trip!
Talk to you when you get back Alan about those parts.
I guess the other solution is don't let go of that handle when on a fish. ;)
I still have my 870 Boss Magnum. I gotta use that thing more often.
Is there a phone number? You can PM or just post it here.
Thanks for the reply.
Any estimate as to went they will be available? I assume we will go thru you?
I was surprised Brent's name hadn't been previously mentioned. Also Wiseguy who post on here a lot seems to be missing.
Oh, tempting. Tell me, is there x-wrap on both sides of the reel seat? Some guys just put it above.
Set the drag the same way the fish will be feeling it, with the reel mounted on the rod and a bend in the rod.

Keep in mind Squidco is closed Sundays.
Is this still going?
Try CL. I've seen dudes on there.
Yeah, I would say the Fathom 25N for 30 or 40 # w/ either of your Phenix rods.
What color? I have the blue ones.
Turner's also has new old stock. I saw one there. Being in Hi doesn't help tho.
Turned out to be size 7s. GL
I may have some. Have to check once I get home. The Made in the USA flavor too.
Thanks to Tunanorth and Tom!! Ready for action (well, after I spool it up).
Yep, CS 610 w/ 40# for bait and 610H w/ 50# for iron. Caught wahoo in the 80 to 90 pound range back in the day.

Just curious, how big were the wahoo running (typically)?
PM sent. Thanks!!
One last question, do those rod clamp screws come in different lengths or just the one length as supplied?
Oh, no doubt. I got mine and couldn't stop fondling it. Couldn't wait to get it mounted on my rod and that's when I had my discovery. But no...
Will do for sure. Thanks!!!
^^ Well, I hope it's just an isolated case and a new screw and nut will solve it. But not sure, that's why I asked if I was the lucky one.
So I just bought a new fathom 25N and I really like the reel but I do have an issue with it. I'm not here to bitch or bad mouth Penn and no I...

And most of them are left handed.
New or used?

Umm. Where have I heard that combo before?

Welcome to the forum.
There is a section entitled "Fishing chit chat" where this would fit perfectly. Prolly get more replies too.
Any word what it will be for 7/30 and 7/31?
Thanks for the report. Seems like a great boat to fish, which many on here have said.
I admit, I didn't read fishy's report only bits and piece here.
As always, listening to the advice is a good way to go.
Plus the cost of food.
That sentence is kinda contradictory.
I'm on a 2 day starting Sunday and was looking around to see what is happening on the water.
You're absolutely right, But, that is where a 2-speed comes in handy. Seems to be the only way to get anything lower than a 4:1 these days.
Well this blows! Reports like this make it very difficult to sit here at work and read them (and they're starting to appear everywhere) knowing I...

Mystery solved. Enjoy your reel PF.
That's very generous of you, but I think I'm just going to stick with the reel-x.
I just checked my 870 magnum and it has a S/N on the lower left side plate. So I guess I'm good until those get dropped.
