Big thanks to Bucket!!! it was my first time casting a conventional set up. I must say I had a blast launching a baseball a few yds.

You were hitting it just fine for first time ever with conventional surf tackle casting that Tommy Farmer 5oz baseball a consistent 85yds and popped 100yds twice :thumbup:

FYI, after Alley landed a Refuge beach big red last Fall he was hooked and went to building his own custom surf rod this winter. A really nice one at that (post some rod pics), a Rainshadow 1508 blank from Fishsticks4u that he has set up a Hatteras Outfitters 525 HO mag w/17lb Suffix.

Now just a matter of practice :cool2:
