Went in my local shop today to pick up my repaired Glowstick & another Big Cat rod. Flathunter & I have been talking about the Abu 10000's for a month or so. I asked them about it, just for giggles I asked how long the layaway was, becasue I've use dit several times before, good ole' Tom said, "As Long As You Need", just make reg pmts no matter how small". To me he might as well have said, "Take whatever you want". I ended up putting the Abu Big Game 10000 in laway with yet another Heavy Action Big Cat. I think this makes somewhere around my 10th Big Cat Rod, too bad I've sold most of them! :crying: I put $10 down, I figure I'll have them paid for in Jan or so & put something else in.
