    Lets just say I don't want to be underpowered if I hook into something big. I wanted something that I could comfortbly fish 100# if needed and also handle any tuna trip I go on. I'm just waiting for conditions to get a bit better before I kick off the shark hunt. The water is only 58 right now and dirty.[​IMG]

    Like Carni said, I pretty much had to sell my soul to get this rig together. :D

    And no, it wont be hanging in the rafters! LOL I'm going to sleep with it!

    See being on the other coast I miss all this stuff. Joey sold off his toys for this rig - Well I think it was a good trade as that is a SWEET SET UP, one I would be PROUD to own and I do believe bigger than anything I have in my aresonal so far.


    Joey I think it is safe to say that you will not be underpowered.


    Again nice rig and CONGRATULATIONS to ya man.

    Sweet Joey, congrats. Man you really are a tackle ho. If the fishing ever gets going, you're gonna be all decked out in the Tail Chaser...no matter what at least your gear will look killer.
