So, Richie built me the rod about 5 years ago. It was designed & cut with tog fishing in mind (as my rods often are). I matched the colors PERFECTLY to a beautiful custom "Lepped-Up" copper-colored Abu Garcia! It's a "SNAZZY" combo - to steal a word from Pete's vocabulary!

As you know, I like to fish LIGHT for tog. For all the fish I target, actually. But to me, catching BIG blackfish on light tackle makes all the effort we put into it so much more rewarding. Then, releasing those BIG fish is the icing on the cake! This rod only has (2) tog over 10 lbs. on it but it did a fantastic job handling them because while it's soft up front, it has some serious hookset power.

I have also used it on numerous occasions for chunking and live-lining bass and even schlepped it out to Montauk for the deeper water, more lead-hungry fluke trips. It's quite a versatile stick. I've been VERY impressed with United Composites and the blanks they are building. After Calstar, I would say they are my 2nd favorite rods - and you can throw CTS in there, rounding out my Top 3.

I haven't used the rod for sea bass yet but I know there are guys out there that are quite addicted to that type of fishing and this rod would do extremely well in that job. It would be a blast for blue demons as well!

If I have any success on here selling this rod, I have a few more that I'm looking to sell. ALL IN MINT CONDITION!

Hey Rich. No, I'm not a big golf enthusiast. I did "attempt" to play a few times with my brother inlaw - who thinks he's on the PGA Tour. It certainly isn't an easy game! I mostly threw & kicked the ball towards every hole.

Nah, when my fishing days are over, it won't be golf occupying my time. I always wanted to learn to play guitar but I seem to not have a proficiency for it. I was pretty good at Guitar Hero though!! Maybe there's a future for me in that...

Hey NYAnglers, tried to talk my wife into letting me get some new gear and she said "yes" but only if I get rid of some stuff I don't use. Since my kids don't fish with me as much, I'm selling off their gear. :D

I got 3 lightly used Mexell Hybrid 20 star drag reels.
Two in black and one in silver.
Excellent reels with a thumb bar for easy drop and casting. Keep your thumb on the bar when casting so the big handles don't disengage the spool on the cast. 👍
They all come loaded with 20lb braid. Sorry I can't remember how much line they have on em.
They all have the box, bag, key to tske them apart and schematics sheet.
Always rinsed after use and stored with the drag backed off.

$150 each, plus actual shipping.
One on Ebay sold for over $200 a few days ago.

Next up is a pair of Shimano's Charter Specials. One is a 1000TR and the other is a 2000TR. Both are lever drag and lever wind. The 1000 has 40lb braid and the 2000 has I believe 60lb braid on them.
$75 each plus shipping. No box, and no paper work.

An Accurate DPX2-500. A two speed reel with level drag. No scratches or blemish what so ever.

It was spooled at one time, brought out on two trips but never fished. It has no line on it now. A smooth solid piece of USA engineering and workmanship. I wish I had a use for it, but it's been sitting at home collecting dust for too long. Someone needs to put it to good use. 👍
$400 plus shipping. Comes with the box and a tube of Reel X it originally came with.
