Does anyone have a 10' 4 or 5 weight rod I can borrow for a week or so? Preferably 5. Thanks.

Maybe I'll drive up and pick it up in person. Probably cheaper.

Plus I'd like to behold a State with so much water yet no fish before I die.

I recommend that approach.

Last chance guys!!!

Ill throw in a book about rod refinishing/refurbishing with the surf stick! For those Spray guys I think this could be the ticket!

If this is shipped I will take it.

Zip is 7018. You don't have a problem sending it to Norway do you? It will probably be $95 to ship it. So let me know.

The SOBF magic stick is no more.

I sent it back this spring with a bullshit $30 repair charge and told them I didn't want no freaking helios upgrade. Of course, they upgraded it because newer is newer and then left it on someone's porch... I don't have a freaKing porch.

Fuck me and my life.

When I find this porch there will be a shitstorm of epic proportions.

Well, at least that porch will be stuck with a Helios. Hate those glass cannon overpriced yuppy sticks. Was teaching a client how to add a haul to a roll cast for distance and his brand new Whorvis Hellios shattered in the butt like someone hit it with a baseball bat.

So yea, Porch monkey is stuck with it now so don't be too sad


and yea, Im takng it back.

I hope we have it worked out. They said they'd make it right.

We'll see.

Apparently UPS took it upon themselves to deliver the new rod to a different address. The fact that it was to be sent through the postal service was a whorvis blunder.

I now know the location of this porch.


Helios rods seem to have a curse to them. I never got Outcast's 5wt either. Fucking dipshit cops accused me of stealing what i was willed and some shithead took.

That fancy 6wt rod tube will turned into a killer bong!
