  1. Anyone build rods?

    Can't go wrong with the MHX blank. I got a few of them and really like them - both standard and HM. Most important thing is the warranty on these blanks and mudhole is great to work with if you have any questions on the components. Post up on their forum on what exactly your looking for and they will lead you in the right direction. Kind of hard to pick a blank w/o putting it in your hands. Few more worth looking at is the Rainshadow Revelation or RX7. These things are indestructible. Got a bunch of buddies on these blanks and they abuse 'em w/o fail. Rainshadow has a good warranty too. Another contender on the market are the CRC blanks from customrodcomponents.com. Was in the shop the other day and really impressed with these blanks. Haven't built on one yet; but will in the near future. Cajun Custom Rods are built on these blanks. Rodgeeks have a nice blank too. Rodgeeks is St Croix's little sister. Order direct. I've been fishing with Lamiglas blanks for the past year and love them to death. They seem to have a very limited selection for builders, but these blanks are bad to the bone for the price. Order direct from Lamiglas and save a bundle. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Things have expanded dramatically in the rod-building industry these past 5yrs.
  2. 2006 18 Maverick MA w/F150

    SOLD !!!! Made if from Miami to Jax and safely tucked in and ready to go
  3. Boat Shopping - Motor Hours

    Greatly appreciate everyone's advice. Will definitely get a mech's evaluation before I pull the trigger. Nag - yeah, ran into a blue 18 today in Naples that was a guide boat. Probably the same one; not sure it's still on the market though. There is a '12 18 hpx on this site that's got my attention too, but the MA seems like a more stable platform for up here in NE FL.
  4. Pre '09 HPX 18

    Greatly appreciate the input
  5. Hello Everyone, In the market for a new-to-me boat. Narrowed the search to a Master Angler 18.5. Well maintained VMax 150 showing no issues on diagnostics with 1000 hrs anything to be concerned with, or is this a just stay away. I know this is an opened ended question, but greatly appreciate any and all opinions. Don't know if 1000hrs on these motors is reaching end of life and anything past is luck.
  6. Pre '09 HPX 18

    About to be in the market for a new-to-me boat. Pretty much zoning in on an HPX. Any compelling reasons not to consider a Pre '09 HPX 18 (old style hull if that was pre '09). Greatly appreciate the feed back
  7. 2004 Maverick HPX 18 Carbon/Kevlar

    Very Interested. How can I get in touch?
  8. 2007 R16 Throttle/Shift Cable Length?

    Thanks Skip New cables installed, and back in business
  9. Need to replace the Throttle/Shift Cables on my 07 R16. Looking at the existing cables, the part# are illegible. Anyone know what length cables I'll need? Also, plan on attempting the replacement myself. Anything to be concerned about, advice, adjustments, or is this a pretty simple job that is hard to screw up? Greatly appreciated
  10. Rubber Strip in Bilge - R16

    Was rinsing out the bilge on my R16 and checking things out when I found two of these. It's a heavy rubber strip about 2" wide and 3' long. One was loose and the other seems to be laying flat on the floor from stern to bow. The loose one was wrapped around my bilge pump is the reason I noticed it. Any idea what they are?
