Re: How many Shimano Antares do you own?

Re: Curado K

It is leaps and bounds over the 200i to me. Cast a lot better and smooth like a high end shimano. I do love the 70s tho

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

I got to see and handle the new powell endurance at the richmond fishing expo yesterday and i was very impressed. They are light and very clean. I think the purple is very close to the .8:1.1 tat. I dont think you will find much better in that price range

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

Great info eveyone. The Light and Tough looks really interesting. I really like the OG Tatula rods but I have to get a Tat CT CS or Morethan PE to match.
