    Defiance 220 Admiral EX Veteran Owners advice request

    At first I got offended when people knocked the brand. I own an ‘07 220 EX with an F150. Sure it could use more power, but we can fish all day (or even 2 days) if we bring a few extra cans of fuel. We’ve slept on it a handful of times. Spartan, yes. Gets the job done though. It’s been nice to...

    I had a dark grey/black 9'er. It was all glass. Forget the name of the model but it was fun for yellowtail. I made the mistake of throwing a 7x into a foamer of 120# BFT 2 years ago and the rod snapped after 3 hours of pulling. My buddy had the same one that also snapped somehow... We bought...

    Defiance hull review

    I haven't fished a similar sized Parker PH. I've had a 220EX for about 3 years. There are things I like about it and things I don't. It is underpowered with 150hp for overnight/offshore trips loaded with gear. On the other hand, it is pretty efficient for local trips along the coast with less...

    My chest freezer got unplugged somehow and I didn't notice it til it was too late... lost about 25# of assorted yellowfin bellies and filets.

    Both reels have boat rash, 8/10 condition mechanically. One has 1/2 spool 65# spectra, the other has just under 1/2 of either 50# or 65#. I only have one clamp, and an extra set of carbontex drags. Also paperwork/tool. Take all of it for $165. I'm in Oceanside.
