    I once saw a local in mexico haul in a bigass grouper with what looked like a bunch of shoelaces tied together wrapped around a rusty tin can. I guess my point is that it isn't the rod, its the angler that catches fish!!! But those LOST rods do look cool!

    NEW! AVET MC Cast Conversion Kits

    For around $20 bucks and an easy epoxy job, I magged all 7 of my avets. I tried the SX MC on a half day trip and the adjustability was nice, but I don't see $130 worth of improvement over a standard SX. IMHO save your money, buy the standard avets and some rare earth mags and do it...

    Tackle for SQ?

    We're targeting tuna, so the usual array of feathers will be in the tackle box. Rigs will be 20# thru 60#. Is this enough or too heavy? I have a habit of taking too much shit. I guess what my real question is "What should I not bring?"

    Praise for the LX 6/3

    The LX 6/3 is a great reel. I don't fish Newell, I use a magged JX 6/3 to throw a jig. I like it because I have the same confidence in it that I feel w/ the LX (and its black so it looks cool!).

    Which Avet up to 1 1/2 day trip?

    MXJ or JX are both excellent reels. The MXL is a good reel as well, but with spectra backing, you don't really need a "wide" reel for line capacity. If you ever plan to do any trips longer than 1.5 days, the JX would be your better investment. (IMHO)

    Surface Irons

    I think its a matter of what feels best in your hands and how you throw the iron. I use a JX 6/3 w/ 40# mono on 65# spectra on a 900M Calstar and for me thats all I need. Hang a Tady 45 on the end and its YT for dinner!.
