New Gear

All threads that bitch about new, existing, or old members will be posted/relocated here. Keep this shit off the General forum, because no one wants (or cares) to hear your opinions. Now go back to the other forums and post something worthy of reading.

Gonna call the rod wrapper manana. I swear the only rod I haven't broken is a TFO. They need to make rods out of titanium for people who fish a bunch & beat the fuck out of their gear, or people like me who beat the fuck out of their stuff & break a rod on the one day of fishing a month. :coffee

I've developed a fondness for basic gear pawl reels and picked up this new to me J.W. Young reel. I'm guessing it's about 50 years old. It's going on a back up spey rod. It was pretty crusted up with old varnished grease when I got it, but it cleaned right up. Sounds awesome and only $58 bucks shipped off fleabay. Came with the original box. Based on what old Hardy's go for, I think the Young's are one of the best bargains out there for an English made clicker.

Sweet RD. I've got a JWY Beaudex I fish pretty regularly. Not in as nice a shape, but bomb-proof, and the pretty sound.

What are using for grease on the pawls?

Thanks SLSS. This one is a Beaudex as well. It's a 4 inch Salmon model. I also have a 3.5" Condex. I'm using Quantum Hot Sauce for lube.

They all work. My wife prefers the smell of the Hot Sauce. I save the KY for 24 year old frat boys. :cool
