The most awesome spinning shore casting rig i’ve ever put together. Light weight. Long length. Good yardage. Long casting capability. I was able to piece everything together but it took 4 months to find all the pieces.
The Shimano Ultegra 14000 XTD European Release “Matt Black” Edition-

1-Spare 14000 Spool
Floating Shaft II

This is the European release. Normal color is silver, this is the Matt Black edition. For it’s size it’s very light weight. Had to order this from Anglers Corner UK as no US dealer carries it. I also got my Breakaway Cannons that i use for long distance braid casting from them.

I had the braid backing & monofilament top shot done by Ken at Charley’s Fishing Supply in downtown, Honolulu. Please ask Roy, the owner before you take pictures or videos at his store. Great helpful knowledgeable personnel there from the owner to Ken, Jen, & Sukil.
I decided to put on 50lb Jerry Brown braid backing with a 50lb mono top shot of Trilene Big Game. Everyone has their own personal preference, no right or wrong answer to what you put on. Took me months to put this together, this rig dwarfs my 13’3″ Ballistic with the Penn 113HL. I’m going to add on a Breakaway Cannon but i may not need it. It’s amazingly light, need to weigh it.
Thank you everyone for watching my videos. I try my best. God Bless:)
