    Nice to meet you at the show.
    Your first trip with me is going to be squid fishing. :)
    You got to catch bait before you catch game fish. :)

    Sounds great. I know what to bring now.

    From Noreast board....
    Sat at summerset show

    I had the great pleasure to meet Paul and Kil at the show Saturday.
    Paul showed me his Acid rap rods along with his others on display.
    Kil was very gracious and helpful in explaining his style for yellow fin jigging and proper equipments used for North East Cod jigging.
    The reason for my visit was to gather information from both of these
    men. For me the 7 hr round trip drive and the 4 hours I spent at the show was a success. I also spent time looking\learning about selections of charters\Head boats, terminal tackle and Lures.

    While I was around the JPR rod booth both Paul and Kil were busey discussing equipment and Tech with many other fishermen.
    Again thanks to you two Guys for the time spent with me.

    Later I found the ZEEBAAS CO. Booth where I was able to look closer at
    their 40lb drag reel. I started taking photos and the rep said he have to charge me for them. He was kidding I think....:confused:
    Mr Bill, Take a close look at the size of the handels as if I remember you are
    some what finicky about how some handels fit.:(
    Also handeled some Van Stals with simulair empressions.

    For the surf fishermen their where 2 booths with these Bazokas\Poatato launchers, These were cool. C02 proppeled bait. This could be a subject all
    by it's self. I could see one on the Bow of the Big E launching top water plugs.

    Of the Charter boat Booths, Black Rose with Cpt Rich was worth visiting with.
    His display showed popular Tuna Lures, popular Tuna dishes and
    popular Tuna fishermen.

    And finally an another item seen at the show that has been disscussed on
    360 is the attraction to or lack of to Pink fishing Rods, Reels and apperal,

    Several booths at this show carried this Gender of gear.
    and apeared to be popular with a paticular "Type" of fishermen.;)

    Kev,
    Thanks for the pictures. What did you think of the Zeebaas in general. That oval knob might work, but the other little round one will be replaced.

    Is that rubber around the perimeter of the knobs?

    What color of anodizing looked best?

    I am pretty impressed with ths simplicity and high quality.
    As new Stella 20000 is over $1200, Zeebass doesn't look expensive anymore. :)

    ..........................................................
    I agree it is a work of art.. but the reel is 60% of a Stella 20000. How can it
    match.?? that is a hypothecial questtion, as how can a reel be more powerful than a 16\0 penn but smaller ( 1960's question)

    Enjoy the photos as they are what they are..
