Anyone fishing these? I was tasked with a neighbor to outfit his new 17' Montauk Whaler with two spinning outfits for the younger kids, one medium quality spinning rod for an adult guest and one higher end for himself. It was a quick $400 at Dicks for a tackle bag, a couple $70 Ugly stick rod reel combos for the kids and some terminal tackle, tools, net etc. Then off to M&D's in Wareham to see my friend Mike and get the two better outfits and man I can't wait to cast the outfit I picked out for him. I'm a big stradic guy, so it's got a new 5000 stradic on it, man is that reel smooth. The reel is mounted on the Teramar Inshore Series TMS-E70MH rod, rated 20-50lb braid and 1/2 to 2 oz lure weight and I can't wait to see how this 7 footer casts my bigger plastic. Amazing how a $1000 can disappear in an afternoon of shopping for fishing gear. We are heading into Plymouth Thursday to hopefully get his young son into his first striper and I'm anxious to see what the action is on this rod. If it's as nice as I think it's going to be, I might have to sell a setup or two to purchase one, although I don't know if Mike even has or can quickly get another one.
