Last couple of years I’ve been able to borrow a buddy’s 30W and Seeker rail rod to late night flat fall for some larger BFT models. This year, he’s going on a trip with me. Anyone know how much H&M charges for a set up in the 80-100# range? I emailed and haven’t heard back and I don’t want to tie up the guy at the counter on a phone call (yet..).

Torn between buying something on BD classifieds, hitting Longfin, or a rental. I only get back to Cali once a year now, specifically to get out and chase something for the freezer, so I’m a little reluctant to drop $$ on a set up (when it could go to fly gear..)

Thanks for any info.

2 years ago, renting an 80lb rig cost me $60 for a 1.5 day at Fishermen's Landing.

Ouch!

If your coming in on the 40 to the 15 curtis you will pass by my place at the top of cajon pass in oak hills and your welcome to pick up an avet pro 30 and a seeker rod,if your flying or coming in a different direction im a bit out of the way though.

I second Angler’s Choice over renting from the landing. Only problem is if you return late at night you can’t get it back to them.
