    Custom (Fiasqo Rods) Calstar Baby Boomer w/Aftco #2 bent butt, Winthrop tip

    For Sale: Fiasqo Rod, custom Calstar Baby Boomer with #2 Aftco bent butt. I built this for myself but it’s too strong for the intended application.

    Shimano Torsa 30 for $400

    Price drop to $400 + shipping from Florida. The Torsa is my favorite reel ever; I’ve for several but don’t use the 30. I love the 20, 40, and want a 16N, so I’d be willing to trade as well. Other trades options for Shimano Ocea Jiggers. I sent this reel in to Shimano for a service a year or...

    Anywhere to get a Calstar 90J online?

    The only place that I found which has them in stock, isn't fulfilling orders right now because their "internet guy" is out sick. Whatever that means. I have a 3.5 day trip coming-up on the 13th, and I'm in Florida. Want to order a rod or two and bring with me (in addition to what I'm already...

    Static Testing set-up

    My first post on this forum, so I apologize in advance if I'm breaking any forum rules. I did a search and didn't find the answer I'm looking for. Is there a simple set-up I can use to keep my blank at a 45-degree angle while under load (significant on heavier blanks) so that I can be free to...
