I guess that is a discontinued full frame model.  On Tiburon's site I only see a "topless frame" T3.   Or maybe I am confused.

ok... that would be like... scarce in a way?... so I have here a keeper... Right ?..

That's a beauty Alan. Definitely a rare find in the PI. Keep it locked up good. I had a DAM Quick spinner, a Penn 114H and a TLD 25 stolen from our house in Bulacan while it was being renovated. I wasn't there as I stayed at home in the States and my wife, who was overseeing the job, didn't think to secure my fishing tackle from the workers.
They didn't steal the rods, as I guess, they couldn't hide them in their lunch pail.
Oh well, live and learn.

Scott

oh.. sad to hear that Scott ... well I do keep it nice and tuck away... yes its kinda rare to see one here... thats why I had to Grab it!...  in fact, I take a look at My Candy everynite and crank her a bit ! music to my ears... hahahaha...  Grin Grin


thanks Scott...

btw, how are the rods?...

Yep, top bar model discontinued a few years ago. Only topless now.      Rudy

hello sir Rudy... any reason why it was discontinued?... from my side I could see that the frame has more strength integrity than a topless one... or am i mistaken?.. Huh?   just a thought ...


thanks...

A Tiburon design change. I haven't heard of any frame failures. The newer design also is a full frame. The newer design gives more thumb clearence and easier to see the lay of your line.

I sure do appreciate the Offer Grin...  i'm still contemplating either to lay 30lb test mono or 40 ... and maybe fish the Candy... or keep it tuck away, nice and shinny! har har har .. or maybe save the Candy for my Son, as a Present!.. when he's ready to go out to the Vast... Wink
