Just wondering does anyone know if the M5s come with a rod clamp? Thanks.
Not good to hear that you still haven’t received the tracking number.. What is the invoice number?

Everyone needs another 25n LOL
You got it Jay. Such a great deal.
what’s up Jay. Go to the PENN website and click on the Fathom Star Drag. Still on sale.
Fathom 25n, 30 and 40 star drag on sale for $110 on the PENN website.
Thought I’d share... $110 on the PENN website..
Awesome catch. On the Ambassadeur!
Oh wow thanks. From everything I have read I was under the impression that the level wind does not disengage on the Lexa 400 CC.
Is beer included?
You would want the 25N if that is the case...IMHO.
Edit: if you like your reels “same width as it is tall” that is.

I can't find one for this particular model. I see one for the NaCl and older Revo Toro models on Alan Tani's website..
Yep. Look for Simmons Sporting Goods on eBay. They always have hundreds of reels on auction.
I got both! Haha. Got the Toro S 60 on eBay for $126 shipped (won an auction) and the lexa 400 for $114.99!
The Toro feels really nice.
Yep looks like they sold out.

I bought a couple of the new Daiwa VIP-A rods at FH at the Squidco booth for $90 including tax. Not a bad rod for the price.
I would get the TMC80HB or TMC76HB.

I think Mackreljoe perhaps meant “acid” wrapped. In which case the answer would be “no.”
Daiwa Saltist 35 Black Gold.
Any 7-8’ rod rated around 20-50lb mono.
I would rent a skiff and fish mission bay or San Diego bay. Get a bait sled and a half scoop of live bait. Lots of fun.
