I only have a couple of pieces of tackle left to purchase ( for the OCT trip ) . For jigging, I got the Genesis Long Range Special. Looks good in the office, can't wait to get it wet.

Now I need a spinner. Being an advanced procrastinator, I have blown
my chance for a custom. What are my options? Would like to spend
$350 or less.
Thanks

If you're looking for a Reel Bargin on a Spining rod for your Speros try Bar Bar Customs on Ebay. They sell for around $115 look and feel awesome.

I bought their 20-50# Hybrid composite cusom Spinning rod because in the ad they said they used them with 50# line loaded on a Penn 9500SS for Blue Fin Tuna.

I loaded it down with 25# of drag... everything worked as advertized.

First, call Accurate and find out if anyone has there Spinning Rod which is build on a Calstar 700H in stock. Here is a link to an earlier discussion: http://2coolfishing.com/ttmbforum/showthread.php?t=56673

Second, Call J&M tackle in Orange Beach, AL and see if they can build there Sailfish Spin rod on a 700H blank by your Cinco trip.

Third, Melton's 3050 spinner on a Seeker Black steel.

Ragman-- I saw that one, 100 gm lure weight max, max load of 6.5kg
seems a little light for our purposes. I saw some very nice rods on
his web site that are around 7 bills that would do the job nicely.

Bazztx-- I bought the BARBAR 30/50 for $125. It should ship Monday.

How much do you know about Pac Bay blanks ?

thanks for the info , everyone

Thanks for the info on the Accurate /Calstar rods.

I got 2 Accurate rods GF700H casting and GF665ML Hvy Duty spinner off Ebay both brand new for $ 285..

Some how they broke both tips off right at the wrapping.. maybe in a shipping or Celing Fan accident? I bought two new Fuji tips and got them both fixed already. Never been used... What a deal!

I saw those but the pictures were not great and it looked like there was about foot gone from the 700H. What is the length of both rods?
