    New stiff rods!

    Is it just me? All the new rods seem to be getting stiffer, quite a bit so. If your fishing big fish or heavy yo-yo I get it. However, I’m a guy who likes a little parabolic action. Is fiberglass going away in name of lighter stiff sticks?

    Biggest fish caught on a Newell

    Just thinking back and wondering what the biggest fish some might have caught on a Newell might be - and how long you had the reel. Mine was a 25lb class yellowtail on a C 229 on 25lb test, figure the reel was about 5 years old - still fish it too! :hali_olutta:
  47. kelppaddydaddy


    For any of you still like to grab a Newell there's a few at Point Loma Sportfishing in San Diego. This is about the only place locally I've seen them. Had a P220 - C338 and 533 in the case, might have more - no 332's though.
