    I have a few rods that don't get used that I'd like to go to kids, including college age, or active or recently discharged military. I live in Visalia but I'll be in San Diego 10/3 to leave for a trip. I'll be boarding the Royal Polaris that morning and will be at the Fishermens Landing dock by 7 AM.

    The rods include a Seeker Ulua, a Calstar Grafighter 700m, a Calstar 865 XH, and a Calstar Grafighter 765 XL. They are all used, all caught plenty of fish, but are all in decent shape. The Ulua is factory wrapped. The 700m and 865 XH were custom wrapped by Johnnie at Big Game International quite a few years ago. The 765 XL was wrapped by me so is a bit of an amateur job, but made with decent components.

    I'm asking $1 each, I'd say free but then Jim will move my post to the free board which I don't think gets as much action. If you know of someone who fits these categories please let them know. Or if you want to get one for someone who fits these categories that's okay. I just need you to meet me there. First replies by PM will get a rod reserved. I'd like to try to spread these out so I'll limit to one apiece unless I don't get enough requests.

    Very nice thing to do! I'm to far north to inquire but hopefully some kids more deserving than myself can use em to kill some fish.

    Blaine's the real deal! Picked up 2 sticks last year that I matched to Penn 500's I repaired. Donated to 12 year old child and one retired Army veteran from Ft. Lewis on my charter last year. Thanks to you, Blaine and all the BD family members who pay it forward to the younger generation, retired military, and those on limited income...
