Re: Millionaire CT SV reel

Interesting regarding Dallenf's experience... I love mine. I've used it for drop shot rigs, ned rigs, cranks, and more and found it very capable, but this was all from a bass boat and fishing for bass. That plus I'm a big fan of the Millionaire platform. It's better at the lighter stuff than the for...
