ROD AND REEL DEAL WEEK CONTINUES AT CHARKBAIT!

12/14/2014

Rod & Reel Deal Week
My goodness we have some fun stuff for you! Accurate announced a factory rebate on their Fury and Boss Extreme series reels. We have the new 2015 models in stock - special #1. This week we planned on giving away a rod with each reel, $179 value. Well, that deal just got sweetened. Check special #1 for more information!!!

My wife and I took a little vacation last week, might say it was a delayed honeymoon. Couldn't really pull that off when we got married 8 years ago, given a young son (10 year old stepson at the time, now my son legally -with formal adoption- as well as emotionally, great guy who also works part time at our shop in HB). With my mother-in-law staying with us for a few months, the time was right for a trip, since she could take care of our 6 year old boy, #1 son now 18 would have been just fine without us around. So, I finally burned up my old AA miles and we went to Hawaii (those miles were earned back in the '80's when I was based in Texas during a different career phase). Wonderful time, hooked up with a client in Lahaina who is the Executive Chef for Star Noodles (GREAT FOOD!), met another CharkBait client at the airport, and "relaxed" during a pretty fast paced trek across Maui. While away some new gear began arriving which is posted here to compliment our Weekly Specials. Okuma's Andros 2 speeds and Azores spinning reel began trickling in last week. Chances are initial inventory will be slim, but the new reels are being produced and stock will catch up with demand. Same with the Metaloid series. Okuma under-forecast sales of the new models, now the factory is ramping up production and we'll see supply meet demand - though probably not until the end of the month and into early January. We have a number of great buys posted, so please take the time to scroll down all the way to the end...

It's crunch time for holiday gift giving. Please note, we hold plenty of inventory but everything has it's limits and time is slipping away - especially so given shipping times and possible weather delays. In terms of inventory, Avet now produces over 800 different reel models when you factor in all their colors. So, if you have a color specific order, delivery time may be delayed as a result. Please order early to allow us time to get hold of the color reel you require. Gift cards are always a great option, and with a gift card there's no second guessing whether or not you purchased the right gift for your own fisherman. With gift cards there is no shipping charge, despite what the script says upon checkout. We'll fix that on your final invoice (it's simply a script error which I've not figured out how to fix...).

New ICAST INTRODUCTION Goes a bit beyond expectation
- The folks at Accurate announced some new changes to their line of reels at ICAST in July, and these new reels incorporate all those positive changes as well as a few other improvements which go beyond the planned update to their line. These are new reels, some new design enhancements such an upgraded anti-reverse bearing, upgraded machining and polishing, nicer cosmetic touches, and new colors just in time for the holiday season. Accurate has produced these new cosmetics as a holiday special offering - like their limited production pieces from past years. I'm really hoping they decide to keep this look going, they are subtly stunning and darn clean in cosmetic appearance, but the beauty is much more than skin deep.
PLEASE NOTE, THESE ARE THE THREE NEW MODELS ACCURATE WILL BE SELLING IN 2015 AND BEYOND: FURY, BOSS EXTREME AND DAUNTLESS. These are the new reels AND the new cosmetics for the future.

The new bearings being used have undergone extensive testing under load, and there's confidence they've found a bearing that won't fail. Accurate has also shaved off considerable weight from all models shown, a big drop in weight from the previously chunky Fury, less of a drop (though still considerable) on the BX and Dauntless series reels. Some very nice small things were changed too, like the new Lever - much nicer feel - and the new preset knob treatment - again a very nice looking cosmetic upgrade from the basic treatment done in the past. The new Accurate reels are stunning in appearance, weigh less than previous model, use a better AR bearing and have taken the freespool enhancement offered on the Dauntless series to the whole line! The new BX and Fury reels spin like the Dauntless - meaning these reels have the best freespool performance in the business, and their drag performance leaves nothing more to be desired.

Here's the run down on the three series of casting reels Accurate will produce for 2015 and well beyond:

FURY - FX SERIES

First off, 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 costly to produce, between Accurates 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). The Fury gets the most significant cosmetic improvements, now it's polished and it's weight has dropped considerably with the nicer machining. 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. 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 Accurates Dauntless series - nothing spins quite as well at this point in reel development.

BOSS EXTREME - BX SERIES

The new BX or Boss Extreme Series of reels incorporate the improved AR bearings AND make use of Accurate's patented Twin Drag system. With the Twin Drag the reels can attain higher drag capabilities with half the drag pressure applied to either end of the spool. Less heat buildup, smoother drag performance, and more drag then you'll need on reels of this size. In terms of numbers, these are made to fish with up to about 30 lbs of drag, and do so well without binding issues. Now we also have the Boss Series reels in both single speed and the TWO SPEEDS ARE BACK IN THE LINE! Also, the freespool performance has been upgraded - same enhancement first incorporated in Accurate's Dauntless designs.

DAUNTLESS - DX SERIES

The Dauntless Series represents Accurate's best series, nothing pulled from these which would aid their performance - they have it all. They make use of the same new AR bearing as well as dogs for this series of reels anti-reverse system. Redundant, and robust. Larger shaft, heavier duty internal components, built like a tank...but they are light in weight, too.  Like the Boss series above, they've even taken weight off the handle arm but also increased it's thickness to retain strength while trimming weight at the same time. Again, these are made to fish up to the 30-32 lb range if needed. These are Accurate's best reels. You could say, these are the ATD's of the casting world. ATD quality, but made for folks that cast and jig...and with the weight savings achieved you can be comfortable fishing 'em all day long.

Special #2

PENN's FATHOM 2 SPEED Reels!
- FREE Penn Blue Water Carnage Rod
SPECIAL PURCHASE OPPORTUNITY - SAVE $139+!

New ICAST INTRODUCTION - When I mentioned this summer that there were some excellent new reels coming our way from Penn I wasn't kidding. Surprisingly we received the new two speed lever drag pieces first, the single speeds will follow shortly. Kind of nice to get the trickest pony in the stable first I must say. There's only a $50 difference in price between single and two speeds, so I'm thinking the 2 geared pieces will be far stronger sellers given the aggressive pricing. All reels have five bearings, good ones, and LARGE gears for power. They have a stainless steel gear train, tough, drilled out for weight savings, and are a wonderful combination of strength and speed. The reels feature Penn's Dura Drag material, offering a special phenolic bonding agent which prevents premature breakdown of the carbon fiber material while providing a barrier to water - less jerkiness on initial start up of the drag, smoother performance and less lost fish are the results of this Penn innovation. These are cast aluminum reels, like the other reels in the Fathom series, and they are sure bet winners. In the past couple years we've been seeing Penn listen, listen well, introduce gear we'd hoped to see from them - gear that anglers have desired. Penn has come a long, long way from where they were just a few years ago, and I'd suggest they've made good use of the time with new products like the Fathom series, Squalls, the new Torque LDII's and there's more coming...

Release Reels
Just what we like to see, some innovative fellows who like to fish with creative minds occupied in designing a better mousetrap...or fishing reel. I've been following Release Reels now for 2 or three years prior to adding them to our site & shops May of 2013. In 2014 they expanded, built a new factory in Virginia and now are producing their wonderful reels with greater capacity - and we've just received our largest shipment to date. Two models, SG and LG (small game and large game), two different handle styles, high drag, top quality bearings and unmatched drag for their size. They finally have things together, and we're very proud to bring their new gear to your attention. Expect this to be the tip of the iceberg, there are more things planned... 100% Designed, Machined and Assembled in Virginia, USA! Pictured Right, Release LG and SG with ToroTamer rod belt.


Release Reels are designed for fishermen by fishermen - now that's an old line, but very true with respect to these guys. Like some of our other favorite firms such as Accurate, Tiburon and of course Avet, these guys have a machining background and they took those skills, a dream and turned their concept and applied creativity into creating a new fishing tool for us.

In 2014 Release moved to a new larger facility, expanded their machining capability with some additional hardware and CNC machines and set the stage for future growth. From the first reels we received I've noticed continued improvement in the subtle areas we wanted to see. They added a dog to the bearing for the anti-reverse, improved freespool performance and in 2014 created a new soft grip round knob that's both unique and a pleasure to use.

 

Release SG (small game) & LG (large game) Reels
Release reels are unique, showing the innovative spirit of their designers and their attention to quality. Their first and smallest reel is the SG. This little powerhouse packs a punch turning 30 pounds of drag! It's certainly made for fishing the new super braided lines, holding 500 yards of 50# or 400 yds of 60-65# braid. Some will go 300 yds of 50 or 60 and top off with a topshot of 100 yds or more, a nice configuration where a lot of casting is called for. Their drag element is made from carbon fiber, "wet" drag for smoothness of operation. The reels feature BOCA BEARINGS, ceramic bearings with rubber seals on the spool and stainless bearings with stainless steel shields for the rest of the 7 bearings used on these fine reels. Oh, I should note that these are high quality bearings ABEC 5 class, not your basic cheap Chinese bearings that are prone to failure. The reels are light in weight, coming in at 13.5 ounces (12 oz w/o arm), and they feature quick but powerful 6:1 gearing. At ICAST in July 2013 Release previewed their LG (large game) reel. Similar overall design, gear ratio, and features. The primary difference is line capacity, with the larger reel holding 500 yds of 80# Braid and turning up to 40 lbs of drag.

Release reels carry a LIFETIME WARRANTY, that's another unique feature in the fishing industry. They will handle any fishing related product failure for a $20 bill - to cover return shipping and insurance. Product failure is not an option.

Van Staal Fishing Reels
FREE Ahi Assassin Jigging or Popping ROD
- SAVE OVER $299!
Or $200 Gift Card

Van Staal created the concept and emergence of high end spinning reels near the turn of this century. They became the reel of choice among discriminating surf anglers on the East Coast, and their acceptance grew to a national and international level. Their one problem was funding, and in the early 2000's that caught up with them. The firm was sold, to a much better funded outfit, one we've all grown up with from the freshwater side of things, the present owners are the folks from Zebco. Zebco further their move into quality saltwater gear with the purchase of Fin-Nor not long after acquiring Van Staal. We've followed them since, and in 2011 pulled the trigger and brought in the line after seeing that Zebco truly is committed to building their saltwater presence, and the quality of products they offer.  Zebco has demonstrated their ability to expand upon the lines they've purchased during the 2000's, and in 2011 improved upon their acquisitions product lines significantly as you'll note below...

VS Spin and VSB Spin

Van Staals well known all machined aluminum spinning reels are available with and without bails. The bail-less design has been favored within the surf fishing community, while the bail design has more favor for the offshore enthusiast. This a preferred manual bail design, more appropriate for higher test lines and higher drag settings, both of which these reels are fully capable of employing to great benefit. 

The VS series of bail-less spinning reels are the originals, offering a completely sealed water-proof body and drag. They are made for hard core surf fishing. Both VS and VSB (bail) reels offer a fully machined aluminum body, flyer and spool for no-flex strength, plus a huge machined stainless steel spiral-bevel main gear for long lasting power. The reels are completely sealed with a water proof body and drag system which allows hard core anglers the ability to fish from the beach or right in the surf. There are numerous videos posted on YouTube showing guys actually burrying their reels in sand and then pulling them out and fishing! They are made for extreme fishing, no doubt, and they've taken plenty of HUGE fish from the surf or offshore - big fish, one of our clients took a bluefin over 500 lbs using a 250 swimming a RonZ... VS and VSB's feature a machined titanium-nitride-treated center shaft and titanium-nitride line roller allowing you to fish either monofilament or braided lines under the heaviest drag loads without wear. For the VSB models, the bail is made from solid nickel-titanium for superior strength and durability. They use a massive anti-reverse clutch, for rock solid hooksets. With huge line capacities and the ability to pick up 40 inches of line with a single turn of the handle, there are few if any other reels better built to deal with tough fish in a tough environment.

Please note, there are only about 16 pieces in inventory, once they're gone the deal's off the table.

Ahi Assassin Topwater Rods

Here's another excellent series of rods from the folks who build the Ahi Assassin Jigging rods. The Topwater series rods are made for tossing poppers, and a lot more. Typically popper rods are made for use with spinning reels, but we've also had these produced with conventional guides since many of the larger poppers are quite castable with conventional reels and more of our West Coast clients and long range fishermen have a distinct preference for conventional gear - especially the jig tossers. The other consideration we had in mind was the fact that for our long range clients, traveling with an 8 foot jigstick is getting darn near impossible. Now, consider having a jigstick, with the strength to handle larger grade fish that's both powerful, and transportable. The new Topwater 40 and 50 is just that! You have an eight foot rod that travels like a 6 footer! The Topwater 40 is rated 30-50#, the model 50, 40-60#.

The components used on these rods is first rate, all ALPS, with metal reels seat and gimble too! Like the other Ahi Assassin rods, these are made from both graphite and fiberglass - from tip to butt of the blank. So, there's no transition point on the rod between the materials - no inherent weak point. So, they can fish heavy, and take larger fish. We use 9 guides on the conventionals and 8 on the spinners, and the first guide is reversed on the spinning model to aid in preventing wind knots. The rods come with a sleeve to aid in storage when not being fished.

- Dedicated Jigging Rods from Toro Tamer

2015 NANO HELIX AHI ASSASSIN

At the 2014 ICAST show Toro Tamer will be introducing new Nano Helix Ahi Assassin Jigging Rods. The new Nano technology resins incorporated in these  rods are at the cutting edge of rod design development. These rods also make use of helix technology in their blank construction, similar in some respects to the much appreciated and profoundly missed Graphite USA rods (aka United Composites). The new Ahi Assassin jigging rods take the Helix feature and build upon that with new Nano resins. Nano Technology resins are ultra-microscopic spheres of silica which bind the carbon fibers (graphite) in the rods. Essentially the resin permeates the graphite fabric, the submicroscopic particles occupy the space between carbon fibers to provide additional support and strength at the molecular level. Modulus increases and compression strength increases, the bond between fibers increases, the flex strength and internal shear strength increases. Strength and durability are enhanced, easily over 2-3 times the strength and impact resistance results, providing you with true state of the art jigging rods which go beyond any rod currently built.  The jigging rods are 6 1/2 feet in length, feature ALPS components with appropriate parabolic bend for the best action in a jigging applications or for use with braided lines.

Okuma Andros Series A 2 Speeds
New Product Introduction - FREE SUPER BRAID SPOOLING!

First shown at ICAST in July, the new Andros Series reels are now arriving.

Last week we received the first shipment of new Andros 2 speeds in size 5 and 5N. We expect the 12 and 16 sizes to show before the New Year, but stock to be slim into January. The previous model Andros 2 speeds were superb, I well know having purchased both the 5 and 5N myself. I fished the crap out of 'em over the past 2 or 3 years, they were my go to reels for their line class - fishing these for 20-40 lb test lines (40-50 lb braid as backing). The new reels go my own previous generation reels a few steps better, pricing dropped, cosmetics in my mind improved, construction got beefed up a bit, oh, did I mention the price dropped. The first one I bought cost $399...the new ones $319! No buyers remorse here, I love those reels, but no doubt the new versions are even better. The new 12 and 16 sizes have not arrived yet, but we'll post those anyway so folks can get a jump on delivery. We may see these arrive before Jan. 1, but I'm not counting on it until we actually have them in hand. Could be mid month, or we might get lucky...
(Note, we always use our own images with very few exceptions, confirming that we actually stock the products represented and have them here unlike some folks on the 'net...we're showing the 5's, those arrived - we are waiting for deliver of the 12 and 16 sizes).

Okuma AZORES
New Product Introduction - FREE SUPER BRAID SPOOLING!

First shown at ICAST in July, the new Azores Series reels are now arriving.

Last week we received the first shipment of new Azores spinning reels! The 65 size arrived, other sizes will be here shortly. This is another key ICAST product introduction for 2015 from Okuma. These are dedicated saltwater reels, made from die cast aluminum for strength, and to reduce corrosion they also make use of carbon fiber internally to shield against electrolysis where dissimilar metals meet. Strong machined aluminum handle, dual force drag system for greater drag capability, designed for use with braided lines. This week we are including "solid" braid at no additional charge. The spool shaft is also over sized, again to deal with increased drag pressures - which these reels can indeed produce. The reels also have a non-slip spool, so your braid won't spin on the spool when under pressure, and excellent bearings designed for saltwater applications. Great new reels, excellent features, rock solid design, and they are priced aggressively. To sweeten the introduction even more, this week we'll include solid braid spooling with topshot if requested. Select Toro Tamer Inshore Brown for your free braid, recommended 20-60#.

Toro Tamer Nano Helix
New General Purpose Bait & Jig Rods!

2015 NANO HELIX AHI ASSASSIN Boat Rods

At the 2014 ICAST show Toro Tamer introduced new Nano Helix Ahi Assassin Jigging Rods. The new Nano technology resins incorporated in these  rods are at the cutting edge of rod design development. These rods also make use of helix technology in their blank construction, similar to the much appreciated Graphite USA rods (aka United Composites). The new Ahi Assassin jigging rods take the Helix feature and build upon that with new Nano resins. Nano Technology resins are ultra-microscopic spheres of silica which bind the carbon fibers (graphite) in the rods. Essentially the resin permeates the graphite fabric, the submicroscopic particles occupy the space between carbon fibers to provide additional support and strength at the molecular level. Modulus increases and compression strength increases, the bond between fibers increases, the flex strength and internal shear strength increases. Strength and durability are enhanced, easily over 2-3 times the strength and impact resistance results, providing you with true state of the art jigging rods which go beyond any rod currently built. These rods are built overseas by a firm owned by New Zealanders. They are proven performers, as folks who have fished the popping and jigging rods have discovered. Now there's a new boat rod which incorporates the same advanced rod building technology - and these rods are unmatched by any firm's efforts in terms of construction and value. If you're local make the drive over to one of our shops to check 'em out, you will be impressed.

This is the newest series of rods in the Ahi Assassin Series of rods from Toro Tamer. These rods were designed for what most folks do on the long range boats, fishing bait and iron. Casting is a key part of their typical use and these rods excel at that! Their action differs from the Jigging rods VERY parabolic bend. These rods have a much more progressive action - meaning they are lighter at the tip for flinging a bait but unlike many rods of this type they don't shut off "at the shoulders" or 3/4 of the length of the rod. They have a progressive bend, light at the tip and then gradually providing more lift and backbone through the mid section of the rod. Given the moderate and more predictable bend through the middle area of the rod, they load up very well and are excellent for use with braided lines. They're not as parabolic as the Ahi Assassin jigging rods, so you do have more direct pulling power, whether to set a hook or put some added pressure on a fish to turn it's head your way.

These new rods also incorporate the new Nano Helix design technology, Nano Resins coupled with Helix wrapping of the carbon fiber material. These are some of the strongest rods you'll ever pull on, and their weight is light at their level of strength and backbone. The guides used are triple footed with high quality materials, made for serious pressure, made for the use of the newer braided lines, and with these guides you won't run into catastrophic insert failure with cracks or popped out rings. They are a better quality guide made by Sea Guide, and these are upgraded guides as you'll note immediately upon your inspection. The reel seat is also made by Sea Guide, and it's metal with a dual lock down! The rods also come with a metal (not plastic) gimbal. The components are of high quality and cost, consistent with the advanced technology incorporated in the blank design.

At present there are two rods available in this series, the Topwater 30 and Topwater 50, both seven feet in length. The 30 will fish 20-30 lb lines (10 to 15kg lines), and the 50 will handle 40-60 lb test very nicely (15-24kg) with 40 to 50 being perfection for a person fishing aggressively with appropriate drag settings of 25% to 33% of the line test. Without doubt, these are the finest rods you can buy for under $300. This project was begun mid-summer, noting some changes in production by other suppliers we pushed the factory to produce this series of rods which target the type of fishing we do most out here on our Long Range fleet. If you don't agree upon receiving the rod we'll pay for the rods return - they are exceptional.

CharkBait Yellowtail Coffin Nail Poppers
Clearance Offer - Topwater Lures

Our Topwater Poppers are proven performers and will impress you with their finish, their attention to detail and their pure fishability. We are in the process of producing a new version of this very popular lure, so it's time to clear out our remaining inventory. Stock is indeed limited to what's on hand now. You'll note the quality of hooks is good, VMC 3X and use of solid rings at the nose, and good quality split rings for connecting the treble hooks. The lures feature a big concave head, they will throw a lot of water and cause a big time commotion on the surface. Expect to get noticed and get bit.

Like all our own design lures, we eliminate two steps of the mark-up process by bringing these directly to the market. Note the quality, substance and value, you will be impressed.

Specifications:
The poppers are available in one size only, the big 200 mm ( 7.9"), with a weight 150 grams (5.3 ounces).

That's a great weight for casting with conventional reels or spinners, and the size is wonderful for most fish you'll come across, from little schoolie tuna and tails to some larger fish. If your intent is to get on fish greater than 100#, then some upgrading of hook and split rings are called for in my conservative opinion. For most of what we see, these beautiful poppers will get you some fish. There are no better lures out there from any manufacturer in terms of construction and finish. They are far nicer than other manufacturers products, better weight distribution than anything from any major manufacturer - and they are tough!

For 2015 we'll introduce a new version of this lure under Toro Tamer's trade name,
that's the reason we're offering these on Clearance - they are terrific lures!

PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A CLOSE OUT, STOCK IS LIMITED TO WHAT'S ON HAND...
AND THERE AIN'T THAT MUCH AVAILABLE - For best selection GOBBLE these up fast!

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.
