Had a shark break my solid glass grouper rod, I left it in the rod holder with tight drag. I need a heavy solid glass rod to rebuild or one in good condition. Like the old green True Temper, any brand will do.

Both of mine have Shimano Torsa 40’s on them.
It’s amazing how easy it is to reel up a big fish with one of these.
My next door neighbor was a mate and charter captain out of OB for years. Last trip we went on he said “ I never understood why anyone would spend that kind of money for a rod and reel”

I said “ make a drop with one of them”

He caught a nice size Snapper, turned and looked at me as he was reeling it up..
His comment was “ Now I understand, I’ve been fishing with crap for forty years and never knew..I’ve been enlightened.
You can’t buy the Torsa reels anymore. The Tuna guys out of Venice hunt them down. Last one I saw on eBay was $1400.00
This is a fish winch..

I use an old Ocean City 6051 (narrow) reel loaded with 100# braid and power handle. Turn the handle, something's gonna move.
