Rod Repair, New Action?

12 April 2015 - 11:20 AM

Recently my buddy at the end of our fishing trip decided to use his fishing rod in a spear fight with a ceiling fan. Short story shorter, the fan gave no quarter took 6 inches off the tip of his rod. I offered to fix the tip, so i went through all the motions to repair the tip top eye and used rod thread and epoxy to secure the eye back on. The rod is back together and I'm now curious application wise, what this rod would be usefull for. It originally was a 6'10 medium-heavy power, fast action spinning rod. Now from tip to stem it measure 6'4. Obviously the tip will become stiffer as the graphite blank is thicker at the tip and the top two eyes are very close together, half the normal distance. The rod tip is now extra fast  but it does not have a really stiff backbone. Its an interesting bend. Hard at first then gives a a little more after a point. So my real question before I return it to my buddy, what would you guys/girls use a 6'4 Medium Heavy- Extra Fast spinning rod for? Other than to pinch hit in a seal hunt. Original lure weight was up to 3/4 oz but i think this would be an over estimate with the new extra fast tip, as it would be slightly more brittle.

Can anyone point me to a lake holding splake? I dont want honey holes or even specific sections of the lake. Just merely the name of the body of water. If you dont want to post, please pm me.



Any help would be much appreciated.

Comparison: Chronarch E vs Curado I

11 June 2014 - 03:38 PM

Just curious has anyone used both of these reels? I have a Chronarch E and i absolutely love it and I have been looking at both the new Curado I and another Chronarch E in a high speed gear ratio. Considering they both are similar prices, guys who have used them do you think one is better than the other? I'm running on the assumption that most people are saying that the Chronarch E is quite similar to the Curado E, with exception to the spool. Curado in a white Tux as i have heard it called. Is this new Curado I an improvement then?

Looking For: Musky Rod

10 June 2014 - 02:20 PM

My buddy is hooked into musky fishing now, and he wants me to scout out the usual spots for a rod for him. Any of you boys (ladies if it applies) willing to part with their old stick in order to fund a new rod?

Looking for a rod capable of handling buck tails up to 2oz, usually chucks giant killers, showgirls, smaller glide and top water baits. I haven't showed him a bulldog yet haha.

I'll also entertain a long heavy duty flipping stick. 7'6 heavy action and up.
Shoot me a pm if you feel up to parting with an old rod.

Thanks Braedon
