    This morning I gave in to the little angel on my shoulder versus the little devil on the other side.

    I recently purchased three Abu 6600EXT's. Two for me, one for that lousy Flathunter. I got these reels for a bargin, $69.99 w/ free shipping and no tax. These reels are $159 normally.

    I got them two days ago, but what was in the box was even better. There were two 6600EXT's and one Revo Premier, which sells for $259. This thing is NICE! It weighs only 6 ounces, yes 6 ounces. I thought WOW!, I'm not saying anything and will keep this nice reel.

    Today while in bed it got to me, so this morning at 6:30 AM I got up and emailed the company. I told them what happened and asked them what they wanted me to do.

    It's funny, but I feel a whole lot better now. Who know maybe they'll say keep it in the end.

    What comes around, goes around. Good judgement used. You are laying up treasures.

    You did the right thing Bryan. If you had kept that $250 reel you would have had to buy new khaki pants and loafers to wear for fishing and even take a shower once in a while:wink:

    It's all about the karma man... the karma.

    You did a good thing. Don't be surprised if they tell you to keep it...
