Re: 852c By any other name?

Re: Why does Shimano not produce a budget 50 size reel?

They also dont make a $100 reel with a metal frame. Go figure that one out. :doh: One of the largest markets out there is the $100 price point. Back in the D series day, they did make a Citica100D, and its a very sought after reel to this day. Even back then it was not really considered "budget". I...

Re: Gloomis rod above NRX????!!!!!

JP had an old fishing show where he tested and ranked fishing equipment...where magically his sponsored products always finished best! Anyway, Cal, am I correct in saying that the reel seat on this new rod is the same as the NRX in that they attempt to glue to foregrip butt directly to the blank? (r...

Re: Equipment Related Pet Peeves

People that buy high end reels, and dont cover them. I just dont get spending the money on a collectible or high end reel and treating them like crap? Let me just spend $300-600 on a reel and let it get all rashed up. :doh: Cover them on the boat while in use? Yikes. Never :) Rash builds character....
