    I would go By the Long fin, they had a few International's
    in their used Reel Case, when I was
    their the other Day ,or leave your Number with them
    and tell them what your looking for
    and have them call you when something
    like that comes in, but you better be ready to Buy
    because a lot of Reels fly out of
    Their every Day.

    Multiple tuna over 50 kilo, up to 80 kilo on a Cuban Yo Yo similar to this one. But his looked home made. Fished with an old panga guy in Ixtapa in the late 70's. We used leather gloves and a large leather pad that was fastened between a pair of suspenders in the front. Press reel against pad and let reel spin with glove and pad acting as drag. Back then dacron/mono leader. Today I would think spectra/floro and kevlar gloves. You can even troll with um. Sailboat guys do routinely.

    Super easy to toss a bait. Fun as hell to really feel a fish hand lining.



    I have actually thought about having a machine shop make me some out of solid aluminum stock.

    My suggestion is that at least one of the 2 components of the rig should be high quality and something you would be happy with fishing long term. The tackle bug bites us all and it's going to get you too. Having to rebuy both components is a drag. I'd suggest buying a great rod and getting a solid used reel. The good used internationals are both readily available and easy to resale. Buy a good rod that you'll enjoy owning and you will be happy you did.

    I fish with a couple of guys from the Caribbean. They bring their hand lines with them and use them once in a while. Fun watching them. Some guys in Hawaii probably still use them also.

    Get a Penn 30TW two speeded by Cal. They sell for about $300 on ebay. Then get a "old school" tuna stick. CalStar 6455XXH, Baja Boomer, 655XXH, etc. for maybe $100? I still use some of these rods for my long range trips. I just sold a couple (not mine) for $60.00 each.

    What do you guys think about a Shimano Tyrnos 20ii with a Phenix Axis 100# class rod?

    Avet Pro30 with 20% off comes to around $350. Penn Carnage 2 heavy boat rod runs $200. Fill the reel with 80# solid spectra, splicing on a short topper of 130 hollowcore. You should be able to sneak in right at the $700 mark, with a setup that will tackle serious fish - maybe not the sexiest, but will certainly do the job...

    You might try Island Fishing Tackle in Carson. Talk to Sam, he always has a bunch of quality rods and reels either used or on concession.
    He also won't try and sell you something you don't need.

    There’s a badass Cal conversion Penn 30 in the classifieds on BD that if I was you I would grab for the $450 he’s asking. It will leave you with a solid amount left to get the rod

    I have a silver mak 20 SEa that I am contemplating selling. 9.5 condition loaded with 130 lb hollow. I could let it go for $450 but that wouldn't leave you too much room for the rod.

    The rod yes. The reel no. Stick with the reels with frames machined out of aluminum billet. Not a machined aluminum casting. You're talking about 100# class reels right? Tiagra would be more in line as a 100# class reel.

    You can find older Gold Mak 16/20 for around $350 and pic up a used Calstar gf 765m for around $250/300. I had a custom made one built for $375(simple build blacked out) That's a Beast of a Set-up!

    To clarify, although the PENN Carnage 2 series rods are nice, bear in mind that the line ratings are for braid. When you have the rod in your hand, you can get better feel for what it can do. The 50-130 rated model fishes 40 pound topshots best, and the 80-200 model fishes 50 pound test topshots. None of the rods in this series are suitable for a 100-pound west coast style rod.

    Great reel
    I caught a 109 bft on it . Then caught an 136 bft right after that. On private boats you have the option to help run them down if need be. The bigger bluefin was hooked and my buddy was busy on his . I tried to break mine off and muscled it in in half the the time . Kicked it into low gear at deeo color and had to gaff it myself. I was too wore out to pull it over. 25 minutes later when he had his at color we argued at who's fish should come over first. Since our only 2 gaff were in mine we heaved mine over first.
    Hell of a problem right?. Later when we weighed them his came in at 95 pounds. I told him at that size he could have just bounced it over the rail. :frehya2:.

    Learn how to fish a roller rod and you can get exactly what you need
    Black Steel 2x or Calstar 765XH with a Avet 30 or Gold Mak and it won't break the bank and yes there is a correct way to fish a roller rod

    Today most people don't want to be bothered with having to maintain roller rods or they are worried about a "extra" 5 oz because it's heavy.......charmin soft
