05/03/2015
Welcome to our Weekly Specials! We've reached May, and the beginning of more optimistic fishing conditions for most of us. Here in SoCal we really never went into the winter doldrums, some great fishing was available throughout the winter, with yellowtail holding, tuna still off our coast, and water temps staying high as a result of our El Nino conditions. For the rest of the country things were a bit more typical in terms of winter fishing. This weeks specials offer a wide range of wonderful gear, new lures from Roberts - surf casting specialty pieces. A complimentary surf rod offer, new lures from ToroTamer as well as their rigging needles (excellent quality and value). We have some very nice deckboots and deck-shoes. And, we round out with a new batch of custom rods from RainShadow and SaltyDawg, and some excellent reels which you will enjoy for decades to come. Get rigged up for what's ahead folks, summer is quickly approaching, and...

Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

Special #1

AVET Raptors!

UP to 300 yards Super Braid - Including Hollow Core FREE
or Free Aluminum Rod Belt!

Your Pick: SPECTRA/BRAID - INCLUDING 16 STRAND TORO TAMER SPLICEABLE HOLLOW CORE,
or ROD BELT

You choose either FREE offer. Receive either the Premium rod belt as pictured,  or superior quality Super Braid (gel spun polyethelyne line) spooling with mono topshot (if desired) at no additional charge. Both offers represent a value of up to $80, and both are excellent.
 

Raptors are a more refined, and higher drag capacity series of reels from Avet. These take their whole game up one notch, providing truly big fish capable reels in compact sizes. Their machining is better, their operation better, and their drag capacity much greater than their size would suggest. There is less side load on the bearings as a result of increased drag capacity. Casting is flawless, and all models with the exception of the HX Wide Raptor come with Avet's super performing Magnetic Cast control. All reels in this series have both a clicker and reel clamp. They are the best this innovative manufacturer produces, and they are made to outperform all other reels on the market.

MXL Raptor pictured below.


 

Pictured below, the powerful and compact Avet JX Raptor.

Pictured above left, the JX Raptor. Drag the mouse over the image to change view. Pictured above right are three models of Raptor, the little SX, MX, JX/LX and the HX. All Raptors feature dual drags, magnetic cast control (with the exception of the wide), ratcheting lever, extended handle length  and extended line capacity compared to the standard models.

The newest and smallest Raptor is the tiny SXJ. The SXJ Raptor has all the features you'd expect from a member of the Raptor family, dual drag power (on one side of spool), two speeds, magnetic cast control, excellent casting characteristics and high drag capability. For the Raptor version of the SXJ, Avet added a reel clamp to the Raptor, the standard SXJ does not come with the clamp (that's the only model in Avet's line without a reel clamp).

Special #2

Penn Spinfisher V
Special: Free SUPER BRAID Spooling!

300 Yards FREE BRAID

Get 300 yards of top quality Gel Spun Braid Spooling at no extra charge with these innovative new reels. Choose from inshore brown, multi color depth finder or uncolored white in line tests from 20# or more.

Long awaited and desired, deservedly so, Penn's upgrade Spinfisher V heralds the return of a standard and it's better than ever thought possible at anywhere near the price that Penn has positioned these new reels. We have never seen a stronger value in a spinning reel - NEVER. The original Spinfisher was designed 50 years ago, and set a standard by which all other saltwater spinners have been compared. This the fifth generation of the Spinfisher is indeed the best one ever produced. There are a lot of key features on this family of reels, some of the key points include a water tight design, with a total of 6 seals (9 on the Liveliner reels which arrive in 2013). An offshore spinning reel should be expected to get wet, and even if you dunk yours in the surf or have it hanging in a rod holder on boat getting sprayed all day, you should not have to worry about saltwater getting into the gearbox or drag system. With the Spinfisher, it can deal with the unexpected, fact is it's anticipated and planned for. The reels have a full metal body and sideplate, that keeps your gears aligned even under a heavy load. And, the drag...system is super with three HT 100's, greased for smoothness and longevity (and this represents one change from the old Penn days). Like many of Penn's newer designs, there's a Superline Spool with a rubber gasket on the spool's spindle to prevent your braid from slipping - an excellent feature more reel manufacturers should consider adding. You also have line capacity rings on the spool so you have less guesswork about how much line you have on your reel while in the midst of the fight of your life. This feature can also help guide you when spooling your reel. The bail is heavy duty, thicker aluminum for added strength and durability. There are 5 shielded stainless steel bearings in the reels, with infinite anti-reverse (with a back up dog on the 7500 - 10500 sizes. There's much more to boast about with these new reels from a technical standpoint, but we also need the mention the value: $139 to $199!

NEW ACURATE REELS
-Major Announcements!

ACCURATE HAS GOTTEN AGGRESSIVE! March 4th Accurate announced new pricing for their very popular and well proven Fury Series reels. These reels went through a major overhaul, serious improvements in freespool performance, significant upgrade in the AR bearing (both points addressed with the introduction of the Dauntless series and now incorporated in the Fury Series). In a nutshell, these reels are now even more competitive, fact is they lead the pack in terms of what they can do, the quality of their machining and performance which at this point is well proven. Now they are price leaders, remember these are MACHINED ALUMINUM REELS, NOT "COLD FORGED" NOT CAST, ACCURATE REELS ARE MACHINED AND THAT'S THE BEST MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUE. Add to this a two year warranty which includes annual servicing, you have a no brainer. The warranty is great, the pricing of the product is excellent, I believe Accurate will have a hard time staying on top of demand.

The FURY Series offers serious anglers Accurate performance at a VERY COMPETITIVE price point. This is achieved by simplifying design - these are single drag reels rather than twin drag design which is what you get when you upgrade to their Boss and Dauntless series reels. A true dual drag reels is more costly to produce, between Accurate's patent and the cost, little reason for other folks to attempt the technique. (Avet does have a dual drag series, their TRx reels - but they go for about $800 and do not go about applying pressure in the same manner). The Fury gets the most significant cosmetic improvements for 2015, now they're polished and their weight has dropped considerably and machining is more refined. The new Fury series will bring many new fishermen to appreciate the quality inherent in Accurate reels. These also get the new AR bearings, no dogs, only the improved bearings for the anti-reverse system. These are beautiful reels that do more than their competitors can in terms of materials used and drag capability. These reels will fish up to 20 lbs of drag measured at strike - meaning they are quite capable of fishing the range of line tests up to 60 lb.. Also, the freespool performance has been upgraded - same enhancement first incorporated in Accurate's Dauntless design. The new Fury series offers high useable drag levels, they spin like tops and are similar in that respect to Accurate's Dauntless series - nothing spins quite as well right out of the box at this point in reel development. The Fury series incorporates high quality manufacturing, very nice cosmetics, and the fishability factor per dollar invested is high. Value does indeed meet performance with the new Fury series reels.

Spooling - I hope we're not intimidating you with all the options, but folks tend to rig up Accurate reels in several  ways and we try to accommodate all applications. We include 300 yards of Braid/Spectra at no additional charge along with your mono topshot (if required) - that's the standard configuration. You can also select "solid" or hollow core Braid/Spectra and increase your line as desired by 100 yard increments by making use of the Optional sections below. The Fury series comes standard with "solid Braid" actually it's not solid it's 4 to 8 strand braid, it isn't hollow core braid. Hollow core carries an added cost on the Fury series. The BX and the Dauntless series reels include your choice of hollow or "solid."! For line capacity information please check our Accurate page, the manufacturers website, or just give us a call.

FREE OPTIONS: Toro Tamer Solid or Hollow Core Spliceable Braid, Izorline, Momoi, Cortland "solid" - 300 yards free. Fury series include solid, BX and Dauntless your choice of hollow or solid.

What's New for 2015?
Okuma Metaloid Reels
MORE UPDATED REELS SHOULD BE ARRIVING AGAIN THIS WEEK!

The Metaloid series of reel was by far the most important introduction at ICAST last summer in my opinion, and they had a lot of competition for that recognition. However, their planned kick off for the reel was delayed. Okuma supplied one batch of the reels late fall, and then they had a problem (their second import). We discovered an issue with the gears. So, they pulled back stock, went back to the original supplier for an improved gearset and could not supply two speed Metaloids for several months while they got on top of the QC and manufacturing. That's been accomplished,new reels arrived to us a couple weeks ago, and they were perfect! We sold through that stock, now are waiting on another release of these wonderful reels. Given their value, performance, 3 year warranty and of course price, the Metaloids will likely be the top selling reel series for 2015 despite the late start. I had already booked ad space in several national publications based upon expected delivery dates - and included free braid spooling. Well, we have a significant order in with Okuma for the new reels and a good chuck of that is going to folks who have them on back order and have been waiting patiently (and not so patiently...). We'll extend the offer of free braid & mono rigging to our clients this week. I don't much care for selling from an empty barn, and that's what we have. But, the offer is in print in some magazines and it wouldn't be too square not to extend the same offer to our on-line friends. Hopefully Okuma comes through with the supply as we've been promised, with that we'll cover backorders and new orders in a timely fashion...and you'll be getting a wonderful reel with a great value added incentive.

New ICAST INTRODUCTION - Here's one we were very excited about, actually a few more than one. In the Metaloid Series there will be three sizes, 5 narrow, 5 and 12. We have received a limited number of the 5N and 5 sized reels in both single speed and two speed forms. And, a few of the 12's have made it into inventory as well. The new series offers a rigid 1 piece frame and left sideplate, 6061 T6 Machined aluminum frame and sideplates. The reels are cold forged (not machined - same process as the infamous bike makers $500 models...), type 2 anodized. The spools are made from machined aluminum. They feature a corrosion resistant coating process as well as the anodizing for dealing with saltwater corrosion issues. All reels in the series offer 4 ball bearings and best of all they offer 17-4 grade stainless steel helical cut gears!. The drag system benefits from Cal's drag grease and Carbonite drag washer. All models offer a clicker, and the freespool performance is simply amazing. The price is very aggressive, definitely puts all other manufacturers on notice. There's even more to talk about, handle, arm construction... Bottom line, these are some excellent reels and their price point, their value, construction (my gosh helical gears!) simply sets new standards for the fishing reel market.

I've owned an Andros for several years, these new reels do what my Andros does. Same size, very similar performance and about 1/2 the price I paid. Add to all this great stuff one more thing that beats all other manufacturers: THREE YEAR WARRANTY - FROM A REAL COMPANY THAT STANDS BEHIND IT'S PRODUCTS.

Several years ago we introduced our clients to the Makaira series of reels. We were the first one's to discover just how good they were and we took the time to try to educate folks, to erase old prejudices and give 'em a try. We were proved very right. We also explained to folks that Okuma is the sleeping giant in reel production, and to expect great things from them. They have proven their point, and now they are entering a new level of dominance with this series of popularly priced reels. No reel manufacturer is anywhere near this aggressive in terms of value and performance, and three year warranty included...simply amazing.

Delivery dates from Factory as of last week: 5 and 5N two speeds came into our inventory at the beginning of last  week. The model 12 2-speeds will arrive the last week of April, with a possible delay due to customs clearance of one week (first week of May). All of these reels have high demand, and we have high numbers on order with about half that quantity going first to those who have been waiting on them and have already ordered reels. I may be rolling the dice that these reels arrive as planned. However, the information we received comes straight from the factory and I consider it accurate enough to pass along.

Rugged Shark
Marine Grade Footwear

Rugged Shark Great White (and blue)
Rugged Shark produces a wide range of boating and outdoor oriented footwear. We're stocking both this firm's boots and their unique deck shoe. The boots feature rubber construction for flexible long lasting wear. They are a comfortable boot, very comfortable with a great insert, the thickest cushion we've seen in a deckboot - and it feels great! The insert is water friendly and removable. The boots are not tall, requiring that you fold them down like the XtraTuff boots (which were primarily designed for agriculture). They make use of the SharkGrip slip resistant non-marking sole. All in all, these are some of the nicest boots we've seen with plenty of comfort to make a fisherman happy through a long day's fishing. These deckboots are available in both white and a deep navy blue.

 

One point to consider, most deckboots like the XtraTuffs run a good halfsize large in order to accommodate use of an insert. Without an insert you are "swimming" in the boots. The Rugged Shark deckboots come with the thickest removable insole I've seen on a factory deckboot. It's well over 1/4" thick, more like 1/3 down at the heel, and has a lot of comfortable cushioning. With the insert they run true to size, so if you wear an 11 size tennis shoe, go for the size 11 boot, if you are a 10 1/2 still go for the 11 since you can always wear thicker socks.

 

Please note the excellent non-slip sole as well as the kick
off feature on the back of the boot.

CharkBait Custom Rod Series

RainShadow Rods

RainShadow blanks have been gaining a very supportive audience in the custom rod building world. The firm that brings these blanks to market also is the worldwide distributor for ALPS rod building components, guides, reel seats, etc. They know rods, they are astute and dedicated to bringing quality to the market. They have a very strong design team at work, and their blanks show the knowledge gained through listening to the most demanding rod builders in the world. As a consequence of their listening they have a very broad range of blanks in their catalog, made for specific purposes. We've been hearing more and more from folks asking if we'd build rods from these well proven blanks. Given some shortcomings in terms of production from our traditional West Coast suppliers like Seeker and Calstar in 2014 we decided that we should learn more ourselves, pull on some blanks, do some talking to both anglers and the folks behind RainShadow. We did our homework, and thankfully we are associated with one of the better rod builders in SoCal (SaltyDog) and asked him to produce several models of rods which are made for our style of fishing.

We are taking our new RainShadow rod project into two distinct areas: first traditional offshore oriented rods and secondly high end inshore bass rods.

Offshore Rods:
For our offshore designs, the rods are made using RC series blanks which feature use of both RX6/E-Glass materials. They are a blend of graphite and fiberglass, similar to what we're familiar with from Seeker and Calstar for their higher end products. You can see the transition, more graphite used in the aft/butt section of the rod to help reduce weight, then transitioning to E-Glass through the mid to tip section. Made in this manner you gain light weight plus extended long term durability and reliability in through the tip. 'Glass really offers greater impact strength in the tip section, that's the big benefit. In the image to the right you can see the transition between materials. The rods are not brittle, they are light and VERY durable performers. We use XXNLG guides, of course made for fishing super braid, the newer soft gimbal butts and composite reels seats on the lighter 7 foot rods, metal gimbals with aluminum reel seat for the heavier sticks. For the deckhand style long rods, sine cord us used instead of cork tape - for a more durable grip area while still keeping the weight down, standard bulb caps for the butt.  The actions will feel quite familiar to those who have fished Calstar Grafighters, but they are a bit lighter and the quality of the finished rod is nicer, nicer wraps with excellent components. It would be fair to say these are nice updates to the current standard.


The light and medium test rods, 70L and 70M make use of the soft gimbal butt, while the 84H 40-60# rod uses a metal gimbal.

Reel seats for the seven foot rods incorporate either composite or metal seats. To keep weight to a minimum the 70L and M make use of composite materials, while the heavy 40-60# stick has a metal seat.


The 70L and 70M make use of a composite reel seat, the 84H uses the dual lock down Alps reel seat.

Wraps all incorporate double and triple wrap guides in a subtle gold metalic finish. Alps XXNLG guides are used for these rods - braid/Spectra safe, durable and strong.

For the deckhand rod 80M note the detail work above the grip, and sine cord is used rather than cork tape for the handle material, great durability with this non-slip finish.
 


As mentioned, you will note that these blanks incorporate graphite more generously in the butt section, transitioning to fiberglass through the tip to increase durability as well as lighten the rods. You can see the transition in the image above.

Toro Tamer Metal Swimmers
New 2015 Product Introduction

Toro Tamer's Metal Swimmers are an update of an old lure which we loved, but unfortunately went away. It's based on an old Dymara jig from about 15 years back. The old lure was produced in Poland, came to America by way of Canada. The manufacturer went out of business, could not offer the lures here at a reasonable price. They were a big producer for me personally and that was motivation to create molds for this production. The lure was great for yellowtail, with bass and tuna being among the catches that the lures produced. The largest size also did quite well on wahoo. Here's what makes the lures so darn effective, it's their shape. There are many similar lures on the market, but with closer inspection you can easily see why this design is more productive. They produce more action on the drop. They can be fished on the slide like a standard megabait type jig, but in the cast-and-retrieve mode they are far more effective. They produce an enticing flutter on the drop. The body is thinner, with luminescent belly, and there's a slight curve to the lure. This can be easily increased or decreased by the angler to customize the lures "fall." We've also enhanced the rigging of these wonderful lures. The ToroTamer Metal Swimmer comes with a welded ring on the nose rather than a split ring, and the hooks are upgraded in both quality and size given the target species can be quite a bit bigger than your basic bass or rockfish (which these lures also handle quite nicely).

These excellent lures are available in five sizes and five color patterns. The lures are offered in the following weights: 7, 4.5, 3.6, 2.3 and 1.6 ounces. Lure lengths are: 6", 5", 4.5", 4" and 3.5 inches. We use Mustad 3561ED 3X treble hooks on all the lures, running a 1/0, 2/0, 3/0, 4/0, and 5/0 on the lures, from smallest to largest sized lure. How do these lures compare to similar products which are on the market? The Toro Tamer Swimmers make use of better and more expensive hooks than similar products, the rigging is better with the welded nose ring - thru wired of course, the lures are triple clear coated so the finish lasts longer, and they catch fish better given the enhanced shape. In summary, this is a lure that no tackle box should be without.

NEW TORO TAMER RIGGING NEEDLES
2015 New Product Introduction

New Rigging Kits
- CharkBait has been selling rigging needles kits since we started. First offering kits from Burns, later Smitty and Daho. Now Toro Tamer has entered the market with their own needles, and quite naturally they are here first.

Toro Tamer has three kits available, covering the range needed by most anglers who have moved from basic knots to in-line rigging of their braid and leader.  The new kits will arrive to you in a nice durable tube, water tight of course.  Pricing is exceptional, and of course quality is on par with current state of the art. Compared to current products on the market you should actually find these a bit more durable, made from surgical grade stainless steel with polished points, and easier to use as a result of their polished and tapered points.

One point to mention, these needles do not come with instructions for their use (as was the case with all other suppliers with the exception of Daho's excellent instruction manual which is included in each kit from that supplier). Rigging instructions will be provided via the Toro Tamer's internet website or through several YouTube videos from CharkBait and other channels. Of course for those close to our retail shops we can assist in person, as Blake has graciously done here for many years or over the phone for those too distant to make the drive. These are excellent quality needles, priced aggressively to help anglers reach the benefits of modern in-line rigging of leader to braid, for connecting solid to hollow or for adding braid in the event you've been cut off and need to add line. All these connections can be done with hollow braid and the right needle, and all are 100% secure.

 

Rigging Needles
Complementing their excellent hollow braided lines Toro Tamer also offers a range of tools and ancillary products necessary to maximize the hollow braid's unique benefits. For 2015 Toro Tamer introduced a new line of rigging needles of their own design. Currently we offer three kits as well as individual needle sales. We offer a 16, 9 and 7 needle kits. There are nine sizes of threading needle produced, 20/30/40/50/60/80/100/130/150 and 200#. We produce three sizes of latch needles and three sizes of loop needles. Our needle kits are offered in a light to medium pack, 20/30/40/50/ and 60# size threading needles, a small latch and small loop needle. The Medium/Heavy kit includes 80/100/130/150 and 200# threading needles, medium and large loop and latch needles. The complete kit includes all 16 needles and carries a suggested retail price of $120, the Medium/Heavy kit sell at $70 and the Light/Medium kit run $60. Toro Tamer brings the cost of inline rigging down to earth. And, with the ease of use of our braided lines, now all anglers can enjoy the benefits of knotless connections - true 100% connection strength with no knots, no casting interference as your line effortlessly flows through the rod's guides.

Image above shows our latch needle, we have made our latch to be a bit more secure opening and closing - requiring a bit more effort - to open. This improvement will reduce the tendency for the latch to open easily in use while inserting through braid, when making a loop for example. If the latch opens too easily then the needle can easily get stuck in the braid resulting in needle failure or much more time spent correcting the problem and starting all over again...if you can remove the needle from the braid. (This can prove difficult and require cutting line).


Light Line Needle Point
130# size Needle Point

Another Manufacturer's Point
 

The image to the left shows ToroTamer's improved needle point. the two images right are of other manufacturer's needle points. ToroTamer needles have a bit more pronounced point which makes it easier to begin insertion into hollow braid and the point is more highly polished so it slips through the line more easily. The only drawback to this is that with some harder to work with lines such as a 12 strand there can be a modest increase in the needle slipping through the strands. This is a minimal risk, and easy to correct if encountered. The benefit of our design far outweighs any potential negative in our estimation.

Our needle's unique design was the result of much time spent using other manufacturers products over the years. There were a few things we felt that could be improved upon in the design of these essential accessories.

One consideration for those selecting threading needles, manufacturers of fluorocarbon and monofilament lines do not have a standard diameter for any given line test. So, in the case of threading needles, an 80 lb. needle may not accommodate all 80 lb. test lines, it might be too snug a fit for some lines and too large for others. There can be variance of diameter between manufacturers and even between batches of lines of the same test. It's best to own a few needles, since leader diameters are not consistent or standardized. Going back to that 80# leader, best to have 60/80 and 100# needles in your kit even if that's the only test you'll be working with. That's one reason why our kits are priced aggressively, we encourage folks to have several needles for use with their lines. Even if an angler only wishes to work with one particular test for inline rigging, it's best to have two or more threading needles just to accommodate different diameters of lines.

A second point to make for folks getting into inline rigging, making wind-ons or even assist hooks, while a loop needle can do many things but it's best used for simply opening up braid which may be hard to work with for a certain size leader or needle diameter. For most all needs, whether doing a splice, making a loop or connecting solid to hollow lines, the latch needle is the preferred tool. The only thing to remember about working with a latch needle is to only go in ONE direction. If you try to reverse or pull the needle backwards the latch will protrude through your braid and get stuck! Once stuck you will need to cut the braid and then extract the needle. If you try to force things you won't get far and you'll probably break your needle. The hook on the latch works just like the barb on a hook. So, keep moving the latch needle forward, never back up.

A last thought to mention, this is a new project for ToroTamer. The needles are quite good, but there is always room for improvement and always a chance of a manufacturing error. Trust that Toro stands behind their products with a 100% guarantee of replacement of any of their products against manufacturers defect. We believe these to be excellent needles based upon our testing. We've been working with them for several months time here at our shops, testing, evaluating, finding areas to improve upon the state of the art. We believe they are in line with other similar products on the market and in certain respects better regardless of price. In their category, they certainly offer some significant savings, represent an excellent value as I believe you will find them easier to use than what has been available on the market previously as a direct result of the polished and tapered points.

Roberts Ranger Lures!
 A New Product for some, and an Old Favorite for many, new size added!

Here's a product we think you'll find quite interesting, if you're unfamiliar. We've now been selling these lures since 2008, so I guess they're not really a new product for us any longer. But, for a lot of West Coast guys they are a new item.

Roberts Ranger is a wonderful lure,  being "found out" about by more and more anglers. We used to carry the lure, marketed by a fellow who specialized in catching Roosters and many other species from shore. The guy was a bit of a legend, and the last we heard from him was that he'd moved down south...Mexico. Well, while the lure was known among the small circle of rooster fish afficianados, we had a hard time selling 'em. This was about 15 years ago. However, on the East Coast the Roberts Lure has been a standard for catching stripers, and more.

Recently, we're seeing more and more folk traveling to parts of the world where focusing on Roosters has become an obsession. And, more recently our long range anglers have discovered just how effective these lures can be for yellowtail. The lures work GREAT for yellowtail, you can swim 'em, and it seems Mexican yellowtail just can't get enough of this unfamiliar lure. Re-rig the lure for some great fun on wahoo, as well. (Use a Mustad 7691 or similar, an Owner Open Eye in 7 or 8/0 sizes, or a BIG 5/0 Owner Treble to upgrade the hooks to something heavier or better suited for different applications. Some  do this as a matter of course, though the supplied hooks are quite adequate for most applications). Skip 'em along the surface or let 'em drop down a bit than then retrieve. You'll find that Roberts Rangers have a wide range of fish they'll catch, and are well worth owning. We stock some great patterns of Roberts Rangers, in two sizes, 2 1/4 and 3 ounces.

For 2015 we've added yet another size lure from Roberts. Their 2 1/2 ounce Whistler is a long cast specialty lure. Same basic design, just a bit shorter/squatier in form. For Stripers, Blues, Roosterfish and Jacks, just like their other lures in terms of intended catch, it will prove very successful. Like all Roberts lures, these are made in the USA.

Toro Tamer Surf Explorer
FREE INSHORE LURE PACK

Surf Explorer  for Casting

This week get a free lure kit with your Inshore Explorer purchase. The lure kit comes with a nice storage box and five lures, three divers, one Krocodile spoon and a bucktail jig. All the lures are good ones, if I could guarantee a fish I would...then again if I could guarantee a fish I'd be somewhere other than at my desk right now...

Our Surf Explorer has been updated for 2013 with introduction of a new heavier 30-50# class rod. This is in addition to the  updated 8-12#, 15-20# and 25-30# class for both spinning and conventional reel use. These are very light and rather exotic travel rods designed for surf fishing enthusiasts. Certainly it has additional applications, but it's made for walking the beach and opportunistic fishing. The rod is a four piece design, using the European Spigot ferrule connections. It's 2.7 meters in length, almost 9 feet, and now comes in a hard case for safe transport and storage. The rod can handle lure weights of 20-100 grams. It's graphite and fiberglass constructed for lightness, sensitivity and long term use. The guides are lightweight, but capable of handling Spectra lines. The handle section is a bit long, in keeping with it's intended application, and you can adjust the positioning of your reel to optimize balance - easily moving the reel forward or back on the rod. It's parabolic action allows it to fish lighter and heavier and still "feel" right, and now you have more choices for the test being fished with the additional light and medium action rods.

Lure weights and line weights: The rods are made to load up best when used as intended. They are light finesse type rods, not heavy surf rods. Their bend is fairly parabolic, do just fine with braided lines or mono. Each model is designed to fish their intended line test - and this really should be specified in terms of drag load, that's a more meaningful specification and predicts the bend of the rod better. So, plan to set your drag at 25-30% of the line test intended for the rod and you will enjoy the benefits of a properly tuned rod/reel match. Lure weight varies by model, the lightest rod matching up with lure weights of 1 ounce and under. The 15-20 does very well up to 1.5 ounces, can push 2. The 25-30 is quite comfortable fishing 3/4 to 3 ounces, with 1-2 being a very nice range. For the 30-50 1.5 to 4 ounces is a good range. That model can do a bit higher but you should note how it's loading up on your casts and adjust accordingly. These rods do best with someone who has some experience and they travel very, very well. They are not intended as boat rods, they are inshore surf rods, and in that arena they represent some of the best rods ever produced.

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

As a means to reduce spam, we change the above incoming email addresses regularly. 
Please don't bother adding them to your address book.  
We do apologize for any inconvenience this policy creates. But, it's the only way we've found to post an email address on-line and not receive so many solicitations from some family member of a deceased "Nigerian" leader trying to move great sums of $ out of the country...
