    New low profile fathom / Squall 400

    Squall 400 next to a 300 lexa hd gen ii I'm starting to like the double handle the more I use it. The squall also palms better than the lexa 400. Waiting to buy a mini super clamp so I can slap it on something besides my proteus rod.

    New low profile fathom / Squall 400

    If I had to do it over, I would get the fathom over the squall. I picked up a 400. I didn't quite like the finish on the edges of some of the plastic bits. A couple swipes with a file will fix that. Here's a picture of the squall 400 compared with other similar sized baitcasters and a couple...

    Seeker MGC Blanks

    These rods are so under rated. They feel good. I have a pair of a 6050 and 7025. Might just give them away to friends or family who are starting to get into fishing saltwater. Maybe lots of people think that they are rubbish just because they were marketed as entry level.

    Seeker lb 799 / seastalker ss 270h-8

    No problems. I should have explained that I peeled away the cork in my original post.The plastic layer is really bonded with the blank. Figured I'd just let it be and wrap new cork tape followed by cord and finish with heat shrink.

    What else would you like to see? A butt picture and the chrome boat line guide placement? Seems like the original cork tape handle was wrapped : plastic, corktape, plastic, corktape. I peeled it off because it was was super dirty and crumbling away in my hand.Saw the writing underneath.

    Look at what people in the UK and Europe do. UK anglers have beaches that require them to cast as far as possible. I was shocked how much effort they go through to surf fish. Makes appreciate being able to surf fish for perch, halibut and corbina locally with light gear.

    Thanks. Wouldn't mind it being a little bit smaller than the 400 lexa. Seems kinda early to say that. I'm mostly interested in the actual size comparison on a pole. And to see how well it fits with a aftermarket clamp.
