Bought a shakespeare baitcast 6ft combo last night. Under thirty dollars so it is perfect for me to learn on. I was trying it out last night in the backyard of all places and it casts pretty well. I can tell I need to get use to it. The retrievel speed is nice. This is my first baitcast set up and I am going to use it next time out. Have it wound with berkley big game 14lb test.
