I'm getting ready to buy a new reel for flathead fishing. I can't decide between the Shakespear Tidewater T30L or the more expensive Ambassadeur Big Game. I know the logical choice should be the Ambassadeur, but Catfish-Insider's Doug Stange and Steve Hoffman endorse and use the Tidewater. So with that said I'm leaning towards the cheaper of the two. Anybody have a Tidewater? Any opinions would be helpful. Thanks!!
