Throwing this out there...i am looking for an old bent butt rod and an old 50 or 80 series reel.

This isn't for fishing but my workouts for fishing. I used my arm bike, free weights, and weight stack machine for my first giant blue fin trip last year. it worked as i was able grind for 54 minutes to bring a 325+ # fish to the boat to get picture, pet (Yes dick heads who are mocking me right now, they are so soft and amazing, and i petted it) and release.

I want to focus more on proper mechanics of the reel and the rod so will be making a weight sled to reel from the back of the property. It is ok if the drags are trashed as i don't really need line to play out.

With my spinal cord injury, i have to go through motions a lot to train my legs for real life stuff.

If you got some an old rod missing eyes, crappy drag etc, etc, hit me up. Let me know how much you want for it and we can meet up between the ocean and n sound.

Thanks.

(Or if some of you guys want to help me come up with a prototype adjustable reeling machine, i will happily buy parts/ materials)

I’ve got a penn international 50 series reel that is heavy as hell, is that something your looking for?
If so I’d be willing to part with it, for your training season or longer.

There is a Penn Intl 30W on a custom rod approx 36NM West of Gray Harbor...Slightly north of Grays canyon.... Had it pulled out of boat 6 years ago.

If you find it, it might need new braid, bearings, etc etc
