10/15/2017
2017 has really been an interesting year for fishermen, some really great fishing in terms of size caught this year...and it's not done yet locally or Long Range. We still have some great fishing on tap and the longer trips out of San Diego are running into the expected diverse catches. San Diego boats fishing local are seeing good yellowfin and yellowtail fishing in addition to your common bass'n and bottom fishing. Up the coast here in Huntington Beach there's plenty of yellowtail for the taking, and the bluefin are still off San Clemente. There are less exotic local catches too, scratching up bass and bottom fish.  Long range, its as one would hope with wahoo, more yellowfin and some serious yellowtail coming over the rail. And, if you find the right kelp paddy add in some dorado, too.   Life is pretty darn good when the fish are cooperative, as they have been pretty cooperative. Alijos Rocks has shown some wahoo, but I've not heard much regarding tuna there yet. The tuna are being caught offshore, on the Ridge and of course Guadalupe Island. While the typical size at Guadalupe is 100-120 lbs, there are some fishi'n in the 200 lb range! You won't see that quality at the Ridge. Our Weekly Specials reflect what's working and what folks should consider having available on upcoming trips.  In that context, basic inventory locally is the 20-40# class gear, unless you are targeting the larger grade bluefin - then be prepared for 60-80 lb.  For long range fishing, 40 lb is the basic, with 50# and 60 being used consistently.  If targeting Guadalupe Island have yourself covered with a good 80# and 60# outfit. Bring along a 40# outfit for opportunistic fishing along the way to the island and on the way home. Some will have a heavier rig available, just in case - there have been 200 pounders around (in part judging by some of the heads which were retrieved by anglers who were "sharked").

LOBSTER SEASON opened for those of us in CA. Time to go catch some bugs! We have some new products this season, a new Ambush net from ProMar/Ahi which will be of particular interest. New to bugg'n, if you are in the area of our Huntington Beach shop make it a point to stop by and spend some time talking to Beta. He'll get you well set up with the right gear and advice for some successful bug catchin. (no knock to our San Diego staff, they can help you quite well too, but Beta really is a great resource - one of the best.)

Special #1

AVET 30/50/80 Series 3 Speeds
(New HX 3 Speed Raptors posted on alternate page - click here)

A few years ago Avet introduced a new three speed reel, the feature added to their 80 class reels. Gained was a lower low, a 1:1 gear capable of pulling stumps, or more accurately 500 lb plus fish with relative ease.  Avet's big gun 80 set new standards for performance in a big game reel of this size.  Going after big black marlin, or for use as a kite reel targeting huge yellowfin or bluefin tuna, this is a reel that will inspire confidence and continue to perform for years and years beyond your expectation. If you are doing some deepwater swordfishing, an 80 properly rigged is a very good option for your most serious fishing.  Big Game anglers have something to turn heads! You can indeed turn a cow size tuna's head with this beefy brute of a reel once you drop that gear down to a 1:1 first gear. Over the past few years Avet expanded upon the 80's with both 50 and 30 class reels gaining the three speed advantage (faster top gear, lower low gear, with a mid gear that packs a punch capable of taming  most fish. For folks heading out on a long range trip of a lifetime, these new reels might be the best insurance of landing the fish of your dreams.

 

Avet's 30 & 50 series THREE SPEEDS offer the same transmission, same gearing as the 80's, same excellent drag and freespool performance as the firms two speed models. These are robust workhorses. The newer 30 & 50 3 speeds are available in both the narrow and wide form. Gearing is wonderfully thought out, 4:1, 2:1 and 1:1. So, you've got speed when you need it. A reasonable low gear at 2 to 1, that's capable of pulling most fish you'll encounter. And, when things get tough, when you hook into to big ones, well, just drop her down to first gear and turn that suckers head and with the drag level these reels are capable of producing you can keep the critters head turned your way! WONDERFUL for anglers, and big time CONGRATULATIONS TO AVET FOR PRODUCING ANOTHER EXCELLENT TOOL FOR SERIOUS ANGLERS.

Special #2
Seigler Reels
-
New Name once more, but this time it sticks!

Seigler SGN, SG (small game) & LG (large game) Reels

Whatever they are called, Seigler, Truth or Release, these 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 300+ yards of 50# or 400 yds of 40# braid. Many will load up 300 yds of 30-40# and top off with mono.  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.

SG/SGN - note the uniquely stepped spool on the SGN SG/LGN - skinnier and taller than the SG

There are some unique characteristics present on these reels well worth drawing your attention to before purchase, so you'll understand their approach. First off, if you are a spool spinner you will note that the reels spool does not demonstrate super long freespool when you first break it out of the box. That's not a function of crappy bearings or design, that's a function of the lubrication within the bearings. Within a VERY short time you'll note that these things spin like tops, and keep on spinning. They must be broken in, some of the lubrication will spread and ease out, allowing better freespool. I'm sure Alan Tani will offer an immediate fix for this should it be something someone would want, or you can simply clean the bearing of some of the lubrication. For my taste, I'll just fish the reel and allow nature to take it's course. With the bearings supplied, trust that the reel will spin very well and cast exceptionally. On production after 2015, the spools spin far more freely fresh out of the box. Not sure what they did, but now

There are some nice machining features you'll note, the frame for instance is "bowed" meaning there's more clearance should you not level your line properly in the excitement of reeling in a good fish. The reel foot is uniquely wonderful in my opinion, it's very much knurled/contoured - not a flat piece of aluminum - so it provides a much better fit on most rods as it contours around the reel seat smoothly. You'll also note that the reel does not appear to be ported for water drainage. Well, that's not quite so, actually the entire gear case provides drainage without vacuum with adequate clearance running it's entire length at the base. Uniquely the preset has click stops, detents throughout its range. For 2016 (current) production, all reels now feature a strike position on the lever - nice! The gears are made from Stainless Steel, and they too will wear and become even smoother over time. ***For 2015 Release updated the LG series reels to include a strike button! That's good news for many of us. The SG also incorporates the feature - all reels under the Truth name have this feature now.

Seigler 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.

The SGN - The skinny version of the very popular SG.
The SG - Small Game reel is now everything we'd hoped for. Many upgrades from the first production, much more refined, nicer machining...all the things you'd expect from a company committed to bringing fishermen excellent tools for better fishing.
The LGN above, a great reel for both private boat trolling, jigging and casting. The LGN could well be one of the best reels made for use on a jig stick tossing iron long distances.

RIGGED YOUR WAY!

They aren't for everyone, but for those who appreciate the enhancements and have the highest demands, they are reels to die for. Okuma's Makaira Special Edition Long Range reels take things to another level in terms of specific changes that some in the long range community have requested. Before getting into that, let me state clearly, the existing crop of Makaira reels are absolutely state of the art, and for most of us, myself included, there is little reason to head in the SE direction. The changes you'll see in the SE series reels appeal most to fishermen who are uncompromising in terms of their demands upon gear, guys who regularly head out to tangle with cow size tuna on the long range boats or aboard a sportfisher off Puerto Vallarta, those that will benefit most will be our most dedicated long range enthusiasts. Those that will benefit least will probably be private boaters, guys who tend to put on heavy miles on their gear and don't take the time to maintain 'em regularly. In a lot of ways the SE reels are custom shop offerings, based upon feedback from some of the most experienced anglers, guys who jumped on the Makairas early and fished 'em hard on the long range boats in 2010/11. To those, Okuma listened and responded, showing their sincere interest in building the best gear possible. The pricing of the SE series reels is a tad higher than the original Makaira reels, reflecting the change in handle and bearings used on these pieces. If you are seeking the best freespool performance, flylining live bait to large grade tuna, this series of reels will put a smile on your face and very likely result in a personal best on the boat.

50SEA pictured below:

 

Okay, now for what's different on the Special Edition reels, the SE Series reels feature:
- Open Spool Bearings with TSI-301 oil. This increases freespool 2 to 2 1/2 times!
- All non-spool bearings feature FULL grease pack for maximum longevity.
- Special Edition Gun Smoke and Black anodizing.
- SE reels have a yellowfin tuna etched into the side plate to further distinguish them from the Golds.
- Frames have been machined out for increased clearance between the spool and cross bars.
- Larger Handles, MK-8/10/15 reels will feature MK-20 size handle knobs for greater leverage.
- Larger Handles, MK 20/30 reels use the 50 size arm and knobs.
- New LOWER GEARING on the 20/30 size - 1.3:1!!!

And, for folks who own current Gold series reels you have not been forgotten. If you'd like any of the modifications mentioned above, the folks at Okuma will update your reel for $29-59 depending upon what you'd like done.

Daiwa SALTIST
 

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

Get 300 yards of top quality Gel Spun Braid Spooling at no extra charge with these innovative NEW reels.

Daiwa's Saltist series spinning reels represent an update of their 2009 product line. Very good update and upgrade, now the reels offer enhancements which were only available on their most expensive Saltiga spinners. The Saltist spinners are dedicated saltwater reels - that's the difference between the new BG's and the Saltist series. The Saltist reels incorporate the better anti-corrosion CRBB bearings, and much more.

One step down from the Saltiga series spinning reels, the Saltists are made for serious saltwater enthusiasts. They are made for a harsh environment with more anti-corrosion protection than less expensive reels in the Daiwa lineup.  With the rugged and durable reputation earned by the Saltist series, these reels offer some impressive features. Fist among these is the Magsealed main shaft, eliminating saltwater intrusion. The reels offer a Magsealed line roller and CRBB corrosion resistant ball bearings for long lasting smoothness and performance. Beyond the Magsealed main shaft and line roller, these new reels offer Daiwa's HardBodyz body and side cover - metal with protective finish. You get the benefits of the light weight Air Rotor design, Air Bail - tubular stainless for lightweight strength. Digigear design and dynamic cut aluminum ABS spool. You also gain a waterproof Carbon ATD drag system!

United Composites XTREME SERIES RAIL RODS

No one knows more about building rail rods than Randy Penny, he's the guy behind the 2x4's and other rods which revolutionized the SoCal's long range sportfishing scene.  Peter Williams and his son originally made the designs for the UC rail rods in 2012. Randy added a couple new wrinkles to the patterns once he took the helm of UC, and of course applied his magic to the creation of factory built rail rods. These are composite designs incorporating a lot of material given their intended application. Dual Helix carbon fiber build, longitudinally oriented Fiberglass, heavy Fuji triple footed guides, 3M rail pad over the grip (protection plus non-slip feature), triple wrapped, etc. All come with gimbals and cap. These are the real deal, not some offshore product mimicking, imitating, pretending, and falling short. (Sorry Blackhole - can't get over hearing their "rail rod" literally BLOW UP at the Fred Hall Show last year when some long rangers put manufacturers through a 50# dead lift. Some failed, some could lift the load, but only one firm's rods excelled with plenty of pulling power beyond the testing...UC. Sounded like a gun going off when the BH rod exploded).  

UC literally owns the rail rod business these days, no other firm is as well recognized, and for those in the know they are the only choice for a true rail rod designed to harvest cow sized tuna. The rods are made here in SoCal, the guys making them are the most experienced in the business, and their unique blank designs are quite easily the best in the business. Demand is greater than supply, and we've unfortunately had some lingering backorders. The positive is that NOW UC IS PRODUCING IN REALISTIC QUANTITIES. They doubled their mandrills, so they can now double their output of finished rods and blanks. We'll have all of our backorders cleared this week, and we doubled down on a new order to back up our Weekly Special's focus this week. Reality says that we'll probably generate some backorders now, but the silver lining is that Randy is already working on our next order of rods and they'll be finished up over the next couple weeks. So, rather than order and wait 4-6 weeks for completion, this time it should be much faster for your delivery - probably within 2 weeks. If you have a trip leaving sooner, let us know and we'll try to get yours moved to the front of the line. One thing for sure, demand is indeed greater than supply. But, our supply is better than any other dealers' given our proximity to UC and the history behind our support of the line and the fellow who owns it.

XTREME SERIES RAIL RODS
UNITED COMPOSITES RAIL RODS!

Rods feature a very nice 3M rail pad on the foregrip, appropriate guides and power superior to all other rail rods on the market. LIGHTER WEIGHT, BETTER CASTING LIGHTER TIP, GREATER LIFT AND POWER - Made by the fellow who created the original 2x4 Super Seeker - if he says these are the best rail rods ever produced, believe it.

The new UC Rail Rods are quite frankly the best in the business, made by the guy that came up with the original concept while working for another USA rod making firm. The guides are Fuji's strongest, made as a rail rod should be, with some protection on the foregrip - in this case 3M's product which is darn expensive and effective (far better than XWrap or a slippery plastic material). Reel seat is from ALPS with dual lockdown for added security. The best blank, excellent execution on the build - custom quality in that regard and they are value priced since the factory wants to get these out on the water.
The Rail Rods are made on UC's strongest blanks, more graphite material used than any other - and it's the good stuff. Dual Helix construction of course. These are their best, the industries best, and they are priced aggressively. Two lengths offered, 7' and 7'6". You will find the tips light, great for casting a bait, and then the power comes on - plenty of it! Great lift, better than any other rod of this type made. The new UC Rail Rods will indeed become the standard by which all others are compared.

SAVAGE PANIC POPPER
Topwater

 

Here's a very nice popper, larger 195mm size (7.7") with 111 gm (3.9 oz) weight. Almost as large as the big ToroTamer 200 mm, a bit less weight but still a great size for most tuna we target.  There are some things that make this lure unique, some things we like a lot.  These lures have one BIG mouth, are thru wired (the only way we offer poppers...), offer heavy 5/0 trebles, and have a swivel on the nose. Nicely make, great finishes and they are available in a realistic size for casting long distances - even with conventional gear rather than spinning reels. Very nice indeed!

 

 

This color pattern put a smile on my face for sure. Darn thing looks just like a lizardfish, a prized halibut bait if there ever was one. Back a few years ago that was a target of mine, the CA State record for lizards...and the color pattern as well as huge mouth mimic that fish very well.  Next time there's a great halibut surface bite this one becomes a go-to lure! Okay, maybe no 'but expected on a surface bite, but most other pelagics are not going to be discriminating against the lowly lizard...they will gobble this as readily as a mack or sardine pattern! (it just looks cuter, like my lizardfish)

Hard to Find Iron - Wonderful to Fish
And, a new name too!

Could be the Hottest Surface Iron Made!
In 2016 these new jigs got a lot of play, especially those near our San Diego shop.*  They're made in the San Diego area, and the small company behind them can only supply a few shops, luckily we're one of 'em. Over 2016 we've not been able to keep the jigs in stock at either our shops. (They were sold under a different tradename until this year).  Frankly, our San Diego shop would sell through the inventory before we could bring our share up north.  Supply has not kept pace with demand. And, that surprised me despite the push from Eric, Manager at our San Diego shop to "get 'em in here FAST!" I had a hard time with the price, darn expensive even if these jigs very well made jigs. The rational I guess is simply that for the dedicated iron tossers, they might very well buy a half dozen jigs, and then find 2 that are perfect swimmers. In the case of these irons, every one of 'em swims right, and it's guaranteed.

Unique jigs, all CNC made, all made to swim perfectly - guaranteed by the manufacturer. Again, these are CNC made, each is exactly the same so they really should all swim well. That's really key to iron, not all are the same, not all swim as well as expected. That's a function of manufacture. As one would expect, a sand cast jig will vary more than something CNC'd. Unlike some jigs, Tady for instance, the oct-10'S are entirely made here in the USA. A good deal of time went into their design, and it shows. I want you to look at the images closely. Note the way the jigs are ground for their rings, also the nose and the hips. You will note one sharp side, one softer and the hips are not even. This stuff is not done for fun, the jigs are made to swim perfectly and what they've done in design ensures that they have a great kick. These are almost like tossing a Tady C - anyone can fish 'em, easy to make 'em swim on the surface, surefire swimmers, each and every one of them. But, they gain the mass of a 45 for longer casts and better kick. Weight of the jigs is 3.45 oz, 98 grams. Price for these jigs is $35, we offer them for $30. Good luck finding these jigs let alone finding 'em for a better price.

Click on the images and you can see a few of the unique things done in creating these jigs. Note the way the jigs are made, the machining of the area where the hook or ring goes resulting in MORE SWING & action. The jigs are not smooth, they have texture which adds a bit of drag in the water when you wind quickly - more attention getting action.

Reality check - demand has outpaced supply on these lures.  We were only able to offer these jigs on-line once or twice in 2016, in late fall, as Weekly Specials. There simply wasn't sufficient supply to post them on our website, the inventory we received was only available at our shops - and that was very limited. Almost all arriving stock has gone to fill backorders. At present we do have some inventory, it will not last and I honestly think we'll have sold out of these jigs before folks note that they are posted here this week. So, anticipate a backorder as we get later in the week, plan on a back order towards the end of the week. But at least you'll get yours and we're not keeping this jig a secret from our on-line visitors any longer. For 2017 the manufacturer tells us that he will do a better job supplying these jigs. Our manager from the San Diego shop actually put him in contact with another machinist, another machine shop to CNC the jigs. So, we probably have an inside track for supply this year.   Understand, these jigs are all made from machining aluminum, not cast pot metal or zinc, nor are they imported in mass from China - they are made here in the USA, one at a time. The process takes time, machining time, and that was the problem in 2016 - only so many could be made. They still have high cost given their production, but every single one of them swim right and swim better than competing surface irons, and they won't break if they slam against the deck.

Toro Tamer Wahoo Ripper Jigs
Superior Brass Construction - Super Value 2 Pack Offer

The Wahoo Ripper was based on the original Spanyid Raider lure, the original not the copy which is available in the States now. The original lure was made from brass, a much more expensive metal than steel and their model numbers (125 & 200) referred to their weight in grams. The new raiders are made of steel, about 20% less weight, and they simply can't match the effectiveness, the faster sink rate, of the brass models. The steel copies also are running darn close to $20 per lure. ToroTamer's lures run a tad less for a more expensive construction, and this week you get an even better opportunity to add a few of these great lures to your tackle box. Lures feature a very sharp, very strong single hook. Great lure in either chrome or gold finish, that's a certainty. This week's offer gets you two lures for a special price. For wahoo, it's a great lure and proven to perform, it will also catch you some tuna and yellowtail - especially in the chrome version.  Brass is Best!

We sold out of these lures in the very popular gold/pink pattern months ago, but now we are up to speed and have a very good opportunity for you. Get two brass Wahoo Rippers one in chrome the other gold both with the popular pink prism finish for a deal that's a super value. With each selection below you'll get two lures, one in chrome and one in gold finish, both with pink prism. You'll be saving a good chunk of change on this offer.

Fishing the lure: These cast like a bullet, for good reason. Longer casts give you more time to entice a bite. You can "fish the slide" but most will try to cover as much water as possible through casting and retrieving. Make use of a reel with high speed gearing. The Cedros from Okuma, #1 special this week covers that well with a 6:1 retrieve rate. Cast the lure out, and allow it to sink - some wait for the lure to reach a 45 degree angle, I'll often count down to 20 and begin a fast retrieve. You don't do much beyond winding, and wind fast! Wind through the bite, don't stop or get fancy, don't pump and wind. Don't do a darn thing beyond staying in front of your fish and winding like the dickens until the 'hoo is gaffed and on the boat!

Please do compare these to the current STEEL Raider jigs which are on the market. They're trying to get about $20 each for those, and they are of a much cheaper production material which won't prove as productive...brass is best, but it's expensive.

The Wahoo pictured left was taken on the Eclipse out of Mission Bay last year. The lures get bit, cast well, drop quickly given brass construction, and hold up over time.

Surf Explorer ®  for Casting

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 on the spinning rods. The conventional rods feature a trigger grip - these do not allow the adjustment feature. The Surf Explorer rods have a parabolic action allowing them 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.

OFFSHORE EXPLORER® BOAT ROD
- 50-80# - for trolling, jigging, heavy bait

The Offshore Explorer travel rods feature a Pac Bay "uni-butt" style all aluminum aft sections.  Specifically, this is a Pac Bay Channel Lock Aluminum Butt. These trolling oriented stand-up rods are four piece, 6 1/2 feet in length. It's perfect for fishing 50-80# applications. With the Pac Bay butts, they're great for trolling duty. You can drag lures, feathers, lipped divers effortlessly. They feature EVA ringed fore grips for added security and comfort. The guides are rated for Spectra, and the rod’s unique gimbaled screw together construction is extremely solid. Unlike other "ferrule" rods, these screw together within a ferrule, so they twice reinforce their strength and proper alignment of these strong and forgiving fiberglass blanks. This unique connection feature also makes it easier to take the rods apart after a long day’s fishing. For our most recent production a hard case in included rather than the soft case of previous models, and the rods action has also been improved.

Toro Tamer's four piece travel rods are sure to be welcomed by the serious angler looking for travel-friendly fishing rods capable of landing larger fish.  Fishing from a panga or sportfisher? These rods are perfect for your needs. Finally there’s a serious saltwater travel rod that can stand on its own merits as a functional alternative to one-piece designs. And, as far as traveling with a quality rod is concerned, these pack down into their 24 inch case! That's very airline friendly and even fits into most suitcases if you don't want to carry them along onboard the aircraft to stow in the overhead bin.

Compare the components being used, and you'll get the picture. These rods are a value, and there's nothing like them on the market in terms of dealing with larger fish and functional troll duty. Let me restate this, since I've done some homework for you. You can find some heavy tackle offshore custom travel rods, at prices of over $1000. The one's I've seen do not compare favorably to what we are offering with our own Saltwater Travel Rods, which are designed for boat use. If you travel to your fishing destinations or just like being prepared for opportunities to hop on other folks boats, our new saltwater travel rods will be favored companions on any trip offshore. Order yours now!

For more information:

Ferrules - there are three basic types available.

Most light duty rods use a simple direct, blank-over-blank design. One hollow piece fits into the other hollow section, lengthening the rod in sections with differing diameter. For strength, it's best to have the tip sections going over the base pieces of the rod (tip over butt) rather than skinnier sections fitting into the larger sections (tip into butt). We use this connecting style for our multi-piece light line and surf-casting rods, our Inshore Explorer.

The European Spigot Ferrule design is an enhancement of the blank over blank design, and is used in the Surf Explorer Series of rods as well as Okuma's Nomad and Xpress Series rods. In this system the pieces of the rod are joined by way of a solid insert in one end section, fitting into a hollow receiving section. One potential weakness of the standard ferrule connection is strengthend since the "spigot" provides increased reinforcement at the joints of the rod.

On our heavier tackle uni-butt style boat rods we use a unique Gimbaled Ferrule system with metal caps for added security of connection and alignment of the rod. You'll find this feature on our Offshore Explorer Series of rods. These are available exclusively in the 50-80# application, Offshore Explorer from Toro Tamer.

And, a few words from one of the lucky folks that purchased one of these innovative rods:

Hey Mark, I thought you would like a report on one of your products. I recently went on the Royal Polaris Seeker Rods long range trip (Sept 17-24, 2016).

I recently purchased several on your travel rods and ended up taking the ToroTamer Offshore Explorer 50-80 lbs rod on the trip.  I had paired it with a Avet LX6/3 2 speed loaded with 80 pounds of Jerry Brown hollow core and 80 pound flora (the reel was one I already had).  Charkbait was the only company I found offering heavy travel rods.

Well on the last day I hooked up with a big yellowfin which took a big run and came very close to spooling me.  Using the back bone of the rod we manage to get the fish turned and started fighting it in.  I realized early that the reel was under sized for the fight but the rod felt great.  I was concerned of flat spots and not being able to get a good arch pressure on the fish, other had concerns about the rod.  after over an hour I brought the fish to the gaff.  The fish weighted in at 123 pounds and it won 1st for the largest fish jackpot.  The rod got a lot of attention.  It preformed not different than the one piece rods I was using.  

 

Being in Houston TX means I have to travel for trips like this.  Also I like the concept of having the break down rods to carry back and forth to the boat down on the coast.

I stopped by the shop after we got back from the trip with Grant Hieshima and decided to upgrade the reel I using to the new Avet HX5/2 MC Raptor for next years trip and here in the GOM.  

Thanks for offering a great product
