Just an FYI for anyone looking for some new gear. Cabelas has a Salt Striker BAIT FEEDER 6500 spinning combo with a King Kat rod on sale for $49.99. I have been using 3 of these reels for a couple of years and really like them. Baitfeeder spinning is all I ever use. I think I paid about this much for the reel alone. Don't know much about the King Kat rod but this is a heck of a deal for this outfit. Sale ends this sunday 2/22.
