Man I’ve been wanting one of these ever since I first saw one. Cool edgy look. Someone needs to buy it so I can stop thinking about it.
Hell yeah ! Nice fish it’s definately an afternoon thing.
I had a sinker rig at 50 and 75 feet while drifting. Nothing.

I’m not going to bad mouth anyone’s rig but I myself wouldn’t ride that boat again. Some like it some don’t. Just my 2 cents.
Oh and another thing. What a wealth of good guys here to help you out. I know they have answered some of my questions. I’d like to check out that...
I’ve gotten back into it after a few years off. Addicting as hell. Light colored over wraps are always tougher you can see every little...
Where’d you get the stuff? Tackle traders?
Damn why is it always the good guys?
Hope surgery goes well and you have a solid recovery. Good luck brother.
That grease will prevent salt water from coming in contact with the inside of the reel. The outside dries off easily the inside once wet takes...
The colors look great together problem is they’re raider colors!
I know I am
I’m way too cheap to get another section of track so I use clamps to hold the 2 tracks and put a gap between the two sections....
That’s a dresser....oh wait there it is on top. I’d put some wheels and a handle on that dresser, perfect tackle box for a 3 day!
Tony Tony Tony! At least you got a yeller tail!
Epic read! Thanks for the entertaining report.
What’s next?!?! K cups?
Well now hold on. I’ve got a fathom 40nld2 and do not care for it. It only really has 18lbs of drag before losing freespool. The overall shape of...
I just got some yesterday at Home Depot.
Great seller here. Buy with confidence. Thanks again for the rod covers!
Some people just have too much money to blow I guess. Must be nice. That’s more than my mirtgage.
I really like these little reels. I used to have the full line of avets but these are the only avets I have left. Can’t get rid of them. GLWS
Nice willy wonka paint job.
I started off with the pac bay about 20 years ago. Still got it still works great. I’m sure they’re are better ones. Hell I don’t even use the...
I’m a long time flex coat user as well. Not that it’s any better or worse than another brand but it’s just what I started using and I’ve not had...
Looks good ray I’m getting more and more intrigued.
Someone needs to buy it before I do
Hell yeah screw the halibut!
Not sure of the blank it was custom wrapped when I got it. I know it was 7’ and fished 30 the best but would fish 40 in a pinch. This...
Here’s a rewrap on a Sabre I extended by 1’ to a lenghth of 8’. Going to be a great 30-40 lb stick.

130 for a 9’ jig stick? Someone is going to score!
Pretty creative on your part there. I always like the one off stuff. I swear this one reminds me of crusty the clown from the simpsons. Good...
Thanks for the feedback guys. Appreciate it.
Someone stole those! Perfect for a re wrap.
Got one brand new in the bag but I’m in SD.
Those are nice rods! Great parabolic action. Too bad shipping would be astronomical or I’d buy it! Mike will you be in SD any time soon?
Huge fan of those fade wraps man those things look killer! Just tried some myself man they’re a pain. Got to figure out an easier way. Much respect
Yeah what’s a tib clamp go for?45-60?
if you get the Duran you can use it on other reels! What a concept.
Thanks fellas. Not sure of the model. Only thing I could make out was the rainshadow decal. I killed the label peeling the cork tape. I think it...
Just curious when you guys double wrap eyes are you wrapping up the foot and then back down? Do you wrap up the eye tie off then wrap up again? Do...
Thread of the day right here.

Just got done with this unknown rainshadow blank. 8’ 30-60lb rod would be my guess, pretty stout! Tuna cord grips with x wrap on top. Alps seat...
Rod storage sucks on this rig. All 8’ rods have to be at an angle to fit in the racks. Other than that good operation.
I’d never considered using mono this way. I think that would look cool. What lb mono would be suitable? Thinking of tryin it....
Thanks for the report brother!!
Fantastic first post but how much?
Haha nice pop tart!
I tell you the classifieds are pretty entertaining as of late. Oh and bump.
I was at squidco earlier today and pulled on that same blank. Skinny with lots of backbone. Oh and I HATE using metallic thread! But it sure looks...
Sweet Jesus they’re on the floor! For shame!
You know what Ray that’s very cool of you! I’m always taken back by how cool and outgoing people are on here. I will most definently have to do it...
What did I miss?
Check the classifieds I think there’s a 690j for sale on there....
Looks sharp with the metallic thread. Blank looks cool too.
Good 80 lb stick there. Mine matches up nicely to an intl 12vsx.
$120 last price drop. Or trade for 8’ rods inshore or heavier. Or fathom 25n
That looks good. I told myself I wouldn’t try weaving but... I do want to try it.
Wow that’s a good one there. Those colors match perfectly! Your truly a master of the art.
Another good one. Nice and clean.
I wish I knew how to do your famous clapping hands thing! Where’d they score the bft? Close to the islands?
Haha that’s great. Yeah I forgot keep your drags set until dry. Then loosen. Good call. If you service your reels often water intrusion should be...
Fresh water rinse and let dry. Light coat of oil on a rag never hurt. If your anal like me you take it apart every other trip. Salt water is brutal.
He did say “NO SHIPPING”
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy reading all this.
Not even close! Check out the tern for 250 ad. Classic just classic! Almost as good as the guy with a van full of kids after the makaira.
Depending on the reel it might take 5 miles of lighter spectra to fill it up too.
Seems like a lot of Shimano rods do this.
The other half can’t fish!
I’m usually a full spectra to 4’ flouro top shot since it has really worked well the last few years but with the bluefin that just doesn’t work....
I’d say you delivered! Maybe some day when I grow up I can wrap a rod like that. Nice work bill and expert photography to boot.
I can’t stand the foam handles.
I’m trying to get away from daiwa unfortunately. Used to love them but pens always been the go to. Wonder what the price point would be?
I have found myself looking at this thread a bunch of times. There’s some really good irk on here guys. I’d like to keep this bad boy going so I...
That’s a steal too far from me though!
Daaaaang that’s nice!
B.O.A.T. Break out another...$20. Sounds better than $1000.
Price drop to 130
Don’t we all! All I seem to find is 7’ though
Man that 501 would be great on my chocolate 670.....
Those look great! Super clean. Do you have to use metallic thread to get that underlay onnthe swirl to show up? Looks good but I HATE metallic thread!
That was quick
Haha nothing compared to some of your guys’s work. Appreciate all the comments. On to the next build.
You forgot to put a price
Selling this 690j wrapped in ‘89. All wraps and eyes are in good shape.
Does have a name on it. Trade for 8’ rods or fathom 25n
Thanks Robert. You’ve got some really good looking stuff as well. I really like this one and may do something similar on a rewrapped rainshadow....
Just finished this for myself. Haven’t wrapped anything in a few years since I haven’t had the time. Never done any JTOBs before. Thanks to all...
Tribute would be my choice. Great captain great boat and great crew.
Right on thanks guys. Got to figure out what I’m going to use. Electric reel is out of my price range as I’m new to kite fishing and don’t do it much.
Maybe I just was imagining the nudity?
On a serous note though, my condolences for the OPs friend. That is one bad ass creature hardwired to hunt opportunity.

I’ve got some 100 yard spoils that are 5+ years old that I’m still using. I haven’t noticed any difference myself. Just kept them in a cool dark spot.
I bet if you had some of those soy hot dogs I saw in that article about farming bluefin in SD bay you’d get some biters!
Looks like predator
Black and white always has the best POP. Always looks good. Some good looking work there Robert.
60-80 lbers with the Coronado’s in sight? That’s what I’m talkin about! Thanks for reporting.

Is it bad that I actually want to try the brake cleaner thing?
