B'Day Pressies

Got Birthday pressies tonight...

A Shimano Spheros 6000FA spooled with 30lb Cajun Braid. (Watch out metro offshore tailor)

A diamond steel to keep my filleting knives sharp.

A new Rapala electronic scale 25kg (The boga grips scales are stuffed now)

and a book on the life of David Beckham (believe it or not he used to play for spurs.)

Plus an assortment of other goodies.

Not a bad haul for an old coot.

Just need some thoughts on what rod to match it to if I want to cast poppers and small metal lures at metro offshore tailor.

C'mon you tackle junkies give me some ideas.

Happy bday dude! Check out the new rapala braid concept spin sticks, inpressed me on a couple of denmark salmon. But you cant go past the 7'6 nitros or t-curve spin 7'6s they are awsome in my point of view. Great for chucking poppers and slices out of the boat, check em out.

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

hope u had a good one!!
i would recommend a Shimano King mack spin...7ft 8-12kg!! perfect for chucking poppers up north
or there is the shimano bluewater 702 spin another good popper rod

prob be a bit short for the beach..but u still could cast 40-60gm metals off the beach for tailor n salmon
