Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

Best answer I got was it doesnt suit him..... sorry not a lot of help but im guessing it was no improvement on his current fleet.... 'It doesn't suit me' without detailing why is, shall we say, unfortunate. Nobody expects a kayak to suit everyone and I doubt Stealth are so anal they'd be worried if...

Re: Fishing rods for non fisherfolk.

catana's are mint. cheap, bendy bendy, and whippy enough for flicking light stuff. I started with an oh and spin. gave spin away to a mate who bought another one... Ive been running a citrix on my oh and cant break it!

Yes! Waiting for a trial (nov) before ordering tho. Want to get my head around the practicalities of using in hull storage, and stability when in the poo relative to my 400.

Re: Police harassment me new to kayaking hauraki gulf

Rough.... Sounds like you shouldve pulled out your fone, vhf, epirp and other safety equipment n explained you were preped for the conditions that you had checked on a forecast pre launch! Coast Guard only had your interests in mind. Police hate being videoed. Fone out. point randomly n ask question...

Re: Daiwa lexa

Im using a lexa and a citrix for all my fishing.
Both really enjoyable to use on micros and straylining.
