    i'm kind of lazy and like the spool guide though. the red iC3 doesn't have one does it.

    well i guess its not that bad but it is still kind of a pain. i used a big ocean baitcast penn reel in the gulf without a spool guide. its just more to worry about and if you don't pay attention you get a big mound of line on one side of the spool that eventually will start rubbing up against the frame. i'm sure you would get used to spooling it yourself.

    oh nice because i'd like to take advantage of this spring fishing classic they have going on till sunday. if you have a card with them you save like 20 bux for every 100 you spend or something.

    also if you take a used reel with you and give it too them they will take some money off depending on how much the reel you buy cost then they clean them up and give them to kids that can afford fishing reels or have a disablity.

    wow thanks guys, i'm gonna go tomorrow and see if they have it. i just hope they have a decent rod for it. they had a lot better selection of rods for baitcast than spinning though if i can remember.
