St Croix Spring Bobber

4 posts in this topic

I know this has been posted before, but I cant seem to find it....

How are you guys converting regular rods to accomodate the St. Croix legend spring bobber. I know people are buying a guide and using epoxy, but I need more details. What size guide? What do you use to replace the rubber grommit on the St. Croix's? I would love it if someone posted pictures.

Funny you mention it. I just picked up everyting to do it for another rod. I picked up a rod tip replacement kit to get the tip. I think it is 6 mm hole size. I picked up some 5/32 id rubber grommets The gromment gets squeezed a little so that 5/32 shrinks enough to accomodate the 1/8 inch spring. I am going to use thread to wrap that tip to the rod and then epoxy.

I picked up one of the legend rods and I love it. So now I will be converting another rod to that spring. I really like the rest of the legend rod also. I wish they werent so expensive. I'd have 3 of them.

Get a size 8 single foot guide and knock out the ceramic ring on the inside and get a rubber grommet from sears that fits the id of the guide hole and your ready to roll once you epoxy it to the pole.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
