Rods/reels you regret not buying

I'm curious what rods and reels you all regret not buying and are no longer available (at least not new). I've got a couple: -the x7 super eiger, not only was I too late to the boat but now it seems people are holding onto them because it's been a struggle finding one for sale. -I have a conquest 50...

Re: New Calcutta Conquest coming?

Re: Steez racing design guys

I have the 631mlfb skyray and the 681m/ml. As others have said they are just amazing rods, best rods I've ever used. Sensitivity is incredible, way way better than any nrx I have.
