Re: New Powell Endurance line coming

Agree a new Cumulus will be nice. Maybe add some Jackall into it, Poison Cloud. :lol:

I rather have Shimano releasing more JDM styling/build/technology on their rods. They already have G-Loomis for traditional American rods.

Re: New shimano crucial info

So they went from having one of the best warranty into one of the worst?

Unless, this has the sensitivity, balance, build quality of a $300 rod, who would actually buy this with a 1 year warranty?
