Hi Guys,

Check out the last Game Reel/Rod I purchased:

Everol 2 speed - 14/0 130lb Blue Water Trolling Reel
Penn Internalional II 80lb Trolling rod (Stand up)
Braid Bucket Harness/Harness (Idea is you can sit back in the bucket harness to counter wt the fish)

The kids at the last party at my place wanted to see some fishing tackle so I got all of them to wear it on.

That reel is for Black Marlin.

Its about 5.5 Kgs without any line on it, once the line gets on it is will be a lot more heavier.

I have a Penn International II that is larger in dimensions and heavier. Also a Finnor Millionaire tri gear, that real is very heavy too.

The 130lb rods are also heavy, you need to pick one of these babies fully loaded and read to go with the reel on. You need a chair for the 130lbers. With all biggame tackle you dont really "hold" the rod when you fish, its in a rod holder or it would be impossible to fish. When a fish is on you strap it to your lowerback/back and into the gimbal and balance it, if its standup tackle.

:shock:

How much line does it take and what does it weigh when it's full?

Mental note: Never challenge Bobbers to an arm wrestling match. :roll:

That Model is my little girl (got twin girls)

The damage was related to those bats at the back, nothing really just needed some fussing over :-)

Hey Bobster, looks like a multi purpose set-up.. The rod and reel can double up as a sledge-hammer :lol:

Them fish are in for one whack job.. :twisted:

Bobby,
You sure you're not posting snaps of someone else, while you lurk /smirk in the background with 19 inch forearms, waiting to take on all us desk jockeys on a arm wrestle contest?
That is some serious jazz , man!
Best
Axx

Hi Axx,

Sorry to dissappoint that's me, but I do look smaller in the pics, perhaps need to get Wolf to take a few shots of me where the cuts n curves are put into perspective..

Heres another pic:

You might want to reconsider this one :twisted: just imagine what that picture would look like after Wolf and I have done a photoshop job on it.

That's some serious tackle you have there...... I'm still waiting for a rod for my Tiagra. Can't do much with the present 50lb class rod I've got. Will be mailing you one of these days with a long list of questions.

Regards,
Mighty M
