: Going to be moving some gear

I'm going to be getting rid of some gear:

Sage 9' 12 wt RPLXI 3 piece
Scott 8'9" heliply 9 wt 3 piece
Scott Heliply 8'9" 14wt :eyecrazy:
Redington DFR 9' 10 wt 3 piece. A real gun. Put on a 12 wt if all you are doing is 30 to 40 foot casts around the boat.

Abel 4.5 N
Billy pate tarpon. Specially ordered by me with a solid spool instead of a ported spool. I just love that old Seamaster look!
Orvis Vortex 7/8 with spare spool. Very flexible reel. I used it as a nine or ten frequently with gelspun backing.

All bluewater proven. The 14 wt was a backup and was literally never used. The 9 and 10 saw use and are nice but not cherry. The twelve weight is very nice indeed!

Let me know if you are interested

How much are you asking for the RPLXi?

In case you didn't notice this post originated in Oct. 2003. Not sure if you will get a response. Might try sending a PM to see if the gear is still available.

Hey guys. That was a long time ago. Sold the Tuna gear (14wt) stuff, but decided to hold onto everything else as at that time Sage disco'ed the Rplxi stuff and I wouldn't have gotten value. Holding onto the rest as all ws bought when I worked in shops so I don't have alot invested in it, and sitting on it until my kids get bigger and I can resume my trips isn't a hardship. Can you believe my wife talked me into that?!

P.S. Anyone wanna go to mexico in september? :devil: No one ever wants to, but I have to keep asking :hihi:

PPS Saw a Pate Tarpon go for $150 on Ebay last week. Philistines!!!
