Was it the760H or XH.  There were guys using both.  Not me though,  I had my own psw760h and psw700xh.  I did tell Lee that if he fell overboard his  sweet HXJ Raptor would be going home with me and his wife would never know he had one!

I was using one of your Hybrid rods when I took my reel off I asked you where do you want it you said  " over there with my other rods" and thats where it went, loved the rod and hope to have one some day.

Alan there were several of your rods next to my tackle box with Mike, Loo & Shao...I think they are fishing again now ? But I would check with them as well, very easily could have got caught in the mess.

good news!  the rod was left up on the top deck with the other "loaners."  looks like the tackle on the SoA has taken a step up!  if anyone is headed down to san diego and could bring it back, that would be great.  i'm in no hurry.

SOB Alan, I think I did that. I meant to put the model 27 on one of your Graphfighters and pulled out a Pheonix instead. I can't exactly remember where I put the Pheonix but I am certain it was up top with your rods. I must have clipped it in with the loaners, sorry about that.

The boats trolling rigs were pretty nice, Avet pro30's on Super Seekers. Not the standard 6/0 on 655xh's you see on the overnight boats.

Hello Alan,

I can pick up your rod one day next week and at least get it as far north as San Clemente.  I can ship it from here if you want me too.  Let me know,
John

PS. My brother will be in town in late July and can pick up the rod from me, he lives in Cambria if that will help.

Derby will be down there on our trip end of August, if by chance it's still down there we can take it on the PV to demo and he can bring it back to ya!
