FS/FT: Okuma Helios / Quantum Smoke Bass Rig

Up for grabs is a sweet little bay bass rig that I've been using to catch the majority of my first California fish on. The more time I spend in open water, the more I realize I need less bass rigs and more moderately heavy setups. Ideally I'd like to keep this as a combo - They really do pair well together and IMO are best served to stay as a set. I've fought and landed some awesome fish on this rig!

Okuma Helios w/micro guides 7' MH + Quantum Smoke Inshore
$180

ROD:
Okuma Helios w/ micro guides 7'MH - Super light rod that I've used to throw everything from dropshot rigs, 110 sized jerkbaits, 3/8 oz underspins, and even weightless plastics like flukes/shads. There is a surprising amount of backbone in this rod with an awesome warranty to back it up. I have the original tag and should have the receipt for warranty if its ever needed.

REEL:
Quantum Smoke Inshore - Super light weight reel that pairs really well with the Helios rod. This reel makes the MH stick feel a lot lighter than it really is. Spooled with 15lbs Powerpro with a decent run of 10lbs Flouro leader. I have the original box.

Trade Bait: I'm out of rod space in my quiver, but need one more reel to round out my gear....so something along the lines of a Daiwa Tatula HD, Daiwa Lexa 300/400HD, or Okuma Komodo SS would be great.

I'm also still looking for an electronics unit, so something like a Lowrance Elite 5+ or a Raymarine Dragonfly 5+ would fit the bill. Obviously +/-$ on either end will be expected for a lopsided deal.....

Unfortunately since moving to Los Angeles, I'm actually physically limited by space. Unlike when I lived in AZ and had a whole room+garage for my toys, now I have a single corner of a single closet with a 6 space rod rack. Anything rod/reel I buy that's beyond that racks capacity to hold, has to be stored in my car. LOL

Ceiling mounted rod racks are your friend.

Thanks dude!

Forgot to mention this comes with a BPS neoprene reel cover. Perfect for those surf launches when fishing inshore kelp beds....

Might be interested in this. Let me look at what I have to offer up in trade. Are you dead-set on low profile reels?

Yeah, kinda. I'm even considering getting rid of my Saltist H-C 20LW that I've only used twice. They (round reels) just don't feel right in my hands yet and with the capacity and capability of the new low-pro reels, its hard to fight that urge.

Either way, shoot me what you have if you're interested. You never know until you know...

I hear ya.

I might be looking at moving out of state, away from the salt (not til next year though) so I might be looking to start streamlining the collection and building more of a freshwater arsenal, keeping a core stash of saltwater capability.
