    Don't think I ever posted this...
    This was a List I put together a long time ago(think it was early 07) when I was looking around at a new reels.. I basically combed the BOC looking for comments on various reels and marked the overall consensus..

    Prices listed have surely changed, but it may be helpful to some out there...

    Thanks.. Ya I buy online quite a bit. When you can't put your hands on all the different models you gotta do the next best thing and listen to "where the rubber meets the road"...
    I think an under utilized feature here is the search button:wink: .. The gateway to hundreds of years of experience with millions of hours on the water...
