Poor tuner, we've been so hard him, he must feel like such a victim, even his friends had to rally for support. I'm sorry tuner.

I like the bong water emoji but it's such an unoriginal statement it doesn't have the luster it use to in the 90s... I would bet I'm younger then most of y'all.

Lighten up, the guy said something about me I said something back. I doubt he's upset and I'm mostly messing with him, I thought it was fun. Your not supposed to eat Dave's chilli Harryman or drink the bong water. Hasn't this thread taught you anything. I learned some people have a lot more money for a rod then I do. 400 plus for a pompano rod is a lot makes me wonder what kind of reel he pairs it with.

"40" you would shit a kitten if saw my trout rod if you think $400 is a lot. I didn't dump a small fortune all at once. I've been saving an buying a little at a time for years. You only live once and fishing is something I'm very passionate about, that's my justification. I have a friend that owns well over 50k in firearms one in particular is around 10k alone with the optic. That's his thing, he likes to shoot critters from very very far away. Everyone has something they love.

There was a time when I had over $50K invested just in Strippers and that was at just one club and just one year. A good fried of mine spent $400K one year traveling the world with several young ladies that in my limited knowledge would be termed Pro's in both appeal and in demeanor. My friend who went thru the 400K felt that none of the money was squandered and the experience was worth every dollar. I mean these ladies knew how to work the pole.

One thing I do not understand is why all these young DrumPros are even bothering with fishing when they are in their 20's and 30's they should be in the clubs getting some....not being in my way out at the secret spots.:confused:

Since I have been redeemed or rejected depending on how you look at it I have decided this afternoon to static mag a couple of SL20's I have sitting around. Plan on soaking the bearings and getting them free of sludge and then removing the centrifugal equipment and using one mag to start.

Here is an in-depth tutorial on how to mag a Sealine SL20X This is the most recent SL20 not sure of the actual name as it is in the garage at the moment. Bought new at Hatteras Jacks in 2017 for $130 I think was the price. The reel seemed to be fine when I first got it, then it became a spare. When I switched to Fathom15's it became a has been.....

So I am giving it another try and will mount it on a Fenwick SurfStick which is way better than all these Pompano rods in the current thread, until I hijacked it. Not as good a tutorial as say ABU Mike who posted nice pictures but he retired and no longer posts. I still post because I will never retire from fishing, no bleep bleep way:)

1. First find a container for parts to be removed from reel
2. Remove side-plate
3. Remove Spool
4. Remove everything from the side-plate but the bearing-keeper and bearing. (This includes the clicker so this will be come a flea-stick not suitable for wood)
5. Remove centrifugal pin and clicker detent device from spool. (There is a video on the internet of someone removing the pin and it came right out. As nothing ever
works for me easy I had to end up hacksawing the pin and pulling it out by force of will with a pair of needle nose pliers.
6. Clean everything, I used penetrating oil spray and then soaked in lacquer thinner and then wipe-down.
7. Take all the removed parts and put in container, I use plastic zip locks, store it somewhere where it will be hard to find if you decide you need the parts for something.
8. Remove split spindle from handle side and discard, actually it had been previously discarded i.e. lost before I started on this deal, part is somewhere in sand at Ramp 55.
9. Take rare earth magnet and glue it the area formerly occupied by the clicker knob. I use carpenters wood glue, it has to dry overnight and that is what is doing right now.
10. Replace side-plate and test spin the spool.
11. Test cast (I only throw 6-10 ounces plus bait so I do not need a lot of adjustment, or at least that will be my position because this is a static mag job at the moment.
12. If it is too squirrely add another rare earth mag.
13. If it smoother than the old centrifugal system, tell everyone how smart you are. If it is slower and shorter, tell no one and put it in the plastic ziplock bag with the rest of the spare parts.

Garbo if you remove the Drum that the centrifugal brakes ride on that is on the sideplate you will have enough clearance to glue your magnets in and not have to fool around with the clicker. The X20SHA is basically a slosh20 with a metal spool. There are literally over a million different magnets in different configurations, powers and sizes on eBay. That's where I get mine
Here is an example of a static mag job on and Avet MX.. the mags and 1/10x1/4" about 52 power.. Clicker is on the other side

Nice picture but it is of an entirely different reel. The X20SHA has quite a few differences to the SL20SH, if ABUMike would post a tutorial it would be more descriptive:) I may even glue a metal washer on one of my SL30SH spools and mag it just to see if helps.

Removed clicker because it was the ideal spot to glue magnet being close to the spool rim and did not require any machining on graphite rim on interior of the side plate. I am not Alan Tani or Ryan so my modifications have to be on a much cruder and simplistic level:rolleyes:

I will report back sometime when I test the reel, after it warms up, it snowed here this morning...... May even post a picture if someone sends $5.00 to Fish Like a Girl Tournament in care of Avon Pier and provides written proof.

Probably will move on from this hijack and look to another thread to highjack on another subject:rolleyes:

Just put reel back together and spun the spool by hand. The spool was still spinning after about 45 seconds. Will need to add a mag or two:rolleyes:

Two magnets is pretty decent. Spins only for about 20 seconds now. A bearing in the reel has been toasted by submerging the reel by a wave method. This method is accomplished by wading out just a little too far and a big wave comes along and goes over your head..........tip of the Point is an ideal place for this and it even has a name Point Blasted:rolleyes:

I may swipe a bearing from another reel to replace the grinding noise of the rusted out bearing, but for now I ready to test.....glued another magnet over the hole left by removing the clicker, someone who asks in the future will be told it was on purpose.........but in reality the mag fit perfectly over the hole and added a bit to the magnetic field slowing down my hard charging spool.....

This is now a long range Pompano Rod, but the Pompano do not have a chance against the SurfStick....
Perhaps some of the Pompano fishermen on this thread can post some pictures of big Pompano and Baby Permit otherwise I may hijack again.....:cool:

I lost the biggest pompano you will never see, probably around to 30 inches tail length, well over 24. It had me bent over the pier rail fighting pilings, it jumped out the net when someone was landing it. It filled up a lot of a 38 inch pier net. Other then that I've only caught the smallers ones that are like 14 to 16 inches.

That's huge pomp for up this way for sure!

There are much better and less expensive fillet knife selections though. Had my bubbas replaced from Bubba and sold them on eBay. Dexter Russell and Victorinox are Great for the $ and hold their edge longer

Wow this thread is still going. Funny how far off course it has strayed. lol. Got the CPS 11’ gen 2 and 10’ gen 1. Now for reels. Recommendations on Spinning reels for these would be appreciated. $200ish range. The 11’ I may opt to use one of my akios on it from time to time since it universal but would like the option Of spinning as my wife or friend may cast it occasionally.

When a post interests lots of people there is no telling where it will go and how many sub conversations will occur.
Reel selection would depend on the lure ratings on your rod and your target fishery. If I remember correctly you mainly surf pomp fish.
In the under $200 price range Penn Clash, Daiwa Saltist, Shimano Stradic, Penn Spinfisher

Thanks Tuna. Currently have some graphite body Spinfishers that have served me well. My 13’ CPS and breakaway have Akios 656 that hold 300ish yds of 17# mono. Thinking 4K-4.5k size spin reels that hold around 300ish yds of 20# braid would be sufficient for my 12’6” sling shot, 10’ and 11’ CPS rods that all throw around 1-4 oz. Thoughts on that size reel for these rods would be appreciated.

4k spinfisher's is what I use on most my spinning rods. I swap them around a lot from pomp/mullet rods to boat rods for rockfish, tog and cobia, so most of mine have 30# braid on them, 20# is perfect for just surf though. I have a 4500 saltist with 17# mono on a "loaner" spinner drum rod. Personally wouldn't ever buy anything thing larger than a 4500 size reel unless you're chasing pelagics on spinning gear. You may consider a long cast spinner like the akios fire loop or diawa emcast, if you're looking for a little more distance.
