When is enough , truly enough

Post by goldrod » Fri Apr 03, 2020 9:15 am

445hp and 480ft pounds of torque
Is where I am stock, but I want to get to the 500 hp
Do you think that is asking too much or should I be good where I am?

Whatever you are content with is enough. With everything in life...Do we need Steez rods and reels? Do they catch THAT many more fish? A Ford Escort will get you to work just as good as a 500hp truck. Will you be using all 500hp...ever?

We all weight performance/value/"Do I need this?" differently. Some guys will drive a 70k truck, 60k boat and use Ugly Stiks. Some, like I have done in the past, will drive a $650 truck, junk 1960's aluminum boat patched with roofing tar and Flex Seal and, use Steez, Antares and other high end gear.

Now what bothers me is when people buy high end fishing gear and use bargain Zebco and other mono because other line is too expensive... ](*,) . Am I right??? Depends who you ask.

That bothers me too. Also when people come into my house and immediately goto the rod rack or the maintenance guy comes and starts talking fishing when I just want him in and out so I can go fishing or for him to just do the job first.

Even still I get what your saying
