    anyone know anything about a roddy 175 by Penn? I can get a couple of these for a decent price, they look alot to me like the catt maxx reel, just thought someone may know a bit more, they have a star drag system all machined alumi frame and spool 5:1 ration etc, bait clicker...... fella that has them don't like bait casters but I really don't want to buy junk ya know, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated. $40 for two of them one never been out of box and other one well lets just say maybe 10-15 bird nest and done :wink: so no use to speak of.
    Thank you all! and Have a Great Turkey day!!
