I'd be interested in that Triton Alan, if the price is right.
I have a care package coming your way soon.

i did a standard service and it was in amazing condition.  i almost didn't to the service to preserve what would have been a "nib" condition.  figure out a price and i'll let the owner know!  it's loaded with 400 yards of 50 pound daiwa j-braid and a 25 pound topshot, ready to fish!

I would have preferred to have it as it was.
$100 is as high as I would go, with no line.

Those Raptors have pretty high specs! The std reels have to be fished with their specs, not their looks. The G2’s are what the std should’ve been.

You are right Mark. I was meaning Avets  overall. I still see people pushing the Raptors past the point they should be fished.

Been getting a freinds HX Raptor every 3 months for service & bearing replacement.

He is seni retired & fishes most every day. Says he's fine with these reels & sending them to me this often... Jeff

Hey Riverrat - What is the guy doing with his Raptors to beat them up that bad?  Is he nailing that many Cow Tuna?

  Tuna, grouper & big rays.

Ive finally talked him into letting me hot rod a Penn VSX OR VISX 12 or 16 so it will approach the same casting ability as his Raotors...Jeff

your basic tld 20 upgrade.  it takes a $43 handle, a $19 drag washer and a $40 service charge, but you end up with a decent reel.  it's just frustrating for the current owners who often end up spending more money than the reel was worth.  a basic upgraded 4/0 penn 113h senator performs to exactly the same levels at often half the cost.
