Want to say my last one was in the 220 range. Have all my work done in the Spicer area. Hate to guess what quality work would run here in the metro. Obviously, don't let price alone dictate who does your work. Birds will keep a long time in the freezer until you have the $ for quality work that you will enjoy looking at for years.

Get out of the metro and the prices will drop significantly...and sometimes the quality will go up to! Check around for prices and quality. I have had some impressive mounts completed for 100 bucks believe it or not! Good luck!

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
