thanks from a new member
Hi, a new member here- been reading (and really enjoying) the board. I posted this under another a different forum, so I thought I might as well here.
I'm someone who appreciates quality but also appreciates value. The BPS rod mentioned above sounded/looked too good to be true. I ended up ordering three graphite rods from BPS w/quality guides, graphite seats and cork grips.
The muskie rod quick/Lep mentioned above is still on sale for $25 (incld shipping), second rod 8-17#, for bucktailing fluke ($30 w/shipping), third rod 10-20# - backup to my med app rod, ocean porgy, c-bass, fluke, etc... ($25 w/shipping). Don't know exactly after s&h/taxes, but total was about $83. $83 BUCKS!!!
I haven't fished all my life as some of you, but I think all will say these are UNBELIEVEABLE prices and I just wanted to thank the contributors.
PS: Anyone with thoughts on what "value" reels I can match the above rods with? I am looking to spend $50 - $75 per reel.
Thanks again to Lep and others for sharing!
