Anyone have one they are looking to get rid of?  And what might you be looking to trade for?  I don't normally go long range and certainly don't go this big, but it seems there is a possibility of needing gear this big on an upcoming trip.  I really don't want to spend money on something I won't use a whole lot, and will just make due with a 60# rig if it comes to it.  But it's worth throwing this out there in case the "right trade" comes along ...

The weird part, I just happen to have a rod suitable for this task, just not the reel.

I know ... and I don't plan on buying, if I'm lucky enough to find a mutually beneficial trade.

I have two 60lb class reels, a Mak15seaII and a Penn Torque 30ld2. The Torque isn't a true 80lb reel, but I could probably get away with fishing it like one on our trip.

So funny.  I just made a voicemail to Hot Bobby asking "How much do you love me?"  Trying to beg up an 80# stup. haha.

You know why!  Never enough gear, especially when I already have a rod!  But push come to shove, I'll consider borrowing.

I'm sure he has a few, and perhaps would even trade me one ...  Sonny?!?
