Right. But in Canada where they don't melt it might be considered properly applied lighter materials. But NOT in Florida.poisonokie wrote:That's because it's melting. Metals and crystalline solids also do that when enough heat is applied.
I see it all the time here.
So I now have a rule... aluminum frames only. Nothing else will do. So for me, my midline curado's are much more preferrable than today's chronarchs or similar. They don't hold up. Feel cheap in my hands. Won't touch them because of the frame materials issue.
If you want good reels in your hands you need metal not plastic or graphite. Just my opinion on the subject.
***The problem I have with graphite frames is not only the brittle issue, but the stripping of threads issue, but worst of all I do not like to feel a reel twist and bend in my hands while using it. That is a sin. I want my reels to feel solid. Nothing else will do.
