    bro's I kept thinking about the deal I got and the only one they had left down there was a left handed retreive #60 so what the heck they will look good on the rods I'm having built,So I called the guy up and asked him to hold it for me if he still had it. Sure enough he did and would.

    So I headed down there , When I got there i went back to the case and looked down at another right-hander sitting right next to the left-hander in the case. I ask him why his son had told me the other day that I bought the last one, he had'em under the counter.and He still has 2 more???:roll_eyes:..
    He reached down and grabbed a box and layed it on the counter. I paid for it and left for my Bro's to show him the reel,and when I got there and opeded the box ( WRONG REEL! )

    I called and told what had happened and he told me to come on back.I ended up with another RECORD #60 HIGH CAPACITY that made a matching set for my rods,heres a pic, that got to much light on them, man these are some tough reels.

    I'll let you know how they do on the BigBoys.ASAP,,:wink:
