    Custom Seeker 7 foot rod. Eight turbo guides plus tip. Rod is a bit softer than what I would of like but has a nice action. Reel Trophy Cat Abu Garcia 6500. Line (hasn't arrived yet) Would be 20 or 25lb test Sufix Camo Seige. Not made mind up on which test to go with. Not the greatest pictures( using older digital camera).

    Way to go Bro,,That is a nice looking setup for sure..

    I thought the same thing about the seeker I built ,,That it was alot softer than you would think for a 9' surf,,My brother likes it .

    Hope you catch your PB,on it this year,,On your casting a baitcaster,,Put a weight on it and tighten spool,, Push release button,and then loosen the spool till it falls slowly to the ground and when it hits the ground without backlashing,,then start practiceing ...In no time you will be casting like a Pro..:big_smile:

    Thanks for the tips Flamekeeper. Yeah the rod is a bit softer thru the blank than i would like. They consider it a live bait rod although the seller assured me it was stout enough to handle 30-40lb fish. Not really sure about that though....Even the butt section has some flex hmmmmm.... I guess only catching one will tell....
