Hi all,

Everyone must be out of town fishing.

I guess I have to start a new topic.

A customer requested a 7' spin, 3 piece, medium power, fast action and 1/4 to 5/8 oz lures. St Croix 2S70MF3 is the blank.

Hard to find BUT I now know who stocks them. Next time I won't have to have it shipped from the factory.

Tonight the customer brought over his reel. I had taped the guides in place. We went to the local park and test cast to set up striper guide. What a sweet blank!!!! It cast beautifully.

Each piece is 29-30"'s long. Fits in a suitcase. Now to install the components permanently.

Lamiglas makes a very nice 3 piece marlin travel rod. GBT 843L and GBT843M I believe are the models. 20 and 30 # test line. Gee, maybe I sould make one for myself and try it on blues/bass.

The advent of glass/graphite ferrules built as an intergral part of the blanks makes these sweet multi part blanks possible.

Hi duckwump,

I am afraid I don't know what a pea**** bass is??

The 3 piece St Croix is almost finished and it will delivered before June 11. It cast beautifully and is quite a blank. If you would like to see it, call me at 631 567-8049.

I am thinking of ordering another of those blanks to build as a demo rod so I can play with it.

Neil,

A pea**** bass is a South and central American freshwater fish. Think of a 10-15 lb blackfish that can demolish a topwater plug. It's a real brawler.

Paniolo,

Those blanks sound perfect for pea****s.

Thanks

Capt. Neil, Al, and Paniolo, thanks for the information. He is also looking for a conventional reel. I suspect that the Shimano Calcuttas might work but I am not familiar with them being a abu man myself. Any recommendations would be welcome. Thanks.

Tom
