Going to Mexico and need a rod. Single hander 9 or 10wt.

Well I am headed off to Mexico (Saulita) on the 24th and could use a rod for the trip. All my big rods 8-9-10wt rods are 2pc so I need a 3pc or 4pc rod to take with me. I think a 9 or 10wt would be best. Going to use it for beach casting and boat casting for what ever swims in the water. I don't know much about tropic fishing so I am winging it here.

I would love a Loomis cross current and have heard good things about the sage xi2. Not sure if I want to take super expencive rods with me due to possible theft so something like a TFO or Echo may work too. I am pretty open to ideas here, let me know what you have for sale. Pictures are always welcome.

I also have a Loomis 11' 7wt native run and a Simms Guide jacket in a Medium that I could put up for trade too if anyone is interested.

Thanks.

Trade??

I have an Orvis 10wt T3 4pc in travel tube that I would trade for the 11' Loomis.

No money exchanges hands...each pays the shipping.

We would have to get this done quickly, as I am in Nova Scotia and would want you to have the rod in hand before your trip.

FYI: you can carry 4pc rods on the plane. I took two set-ups from Nova Scotia (where I live) to Cabo San Lucas last October...no issues.

Chris

It's easier for me to get emails direstly, because I am not online here that often. So if you are interested, my email is [email protected]

I have a Sage RPLX 3-pc 10-wt in excellent condition -- ferrules and guides tight, no corrosion, reel seat tight, no bent guides, cork in fine condition, but darkened from use. This is a great rod to use from a boat with a WF-11-F or a 400 grain Teeny-type sink tip line. I never fished it from the surf, but it works fine from the shore. The rod comes with a Sage sock and a high quality, replacement aluminum tube. $200, shipped to lower 48.

Taking an 8 or 9 wt to MX (unless you're fishing bones) is a recipe for disaster, as there are so many large, powerful fish that could and do become 'bycatch.' Even a silly little 8lb skipjack will put a bend in a 10wt like you can't believe.

I have a 9 wt and 12 wt Sage Xi2 that I used for Mexico/Belize trips. Awesome combo to cover the saltwater opportunities down there. Well sell together or separate, with original rod tubes, socks and blank warranty cards. Both in excellent condition. PM me if interested.

Thanks for all the offers, I am thinking them over and open to more.

I will also open this up to 3-peice rods as some of the older models are 3-peice. My loomis CC6wt and TFO 14wt are both 3pc and should still be short enough to check as lugage if I can not carry them on with me.

If I check the rods with baggage I will make sure to carry the reels on w/me. If something gets stollen at least it won't be the whole lot.

I also have a 10' st. croix beach casting spinning rod and a Loomis crosscurrent beach rod 11'3" I am thinking of taking but don't want to overpack.

Thanks for the advice guys.
