Andy Montgomery/Daiwa

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I really think it is just about money, not product. For the right money I would certainly change brands, of underwear or almost anything else.
Let's not go to far! It's hard to fish with a wedgie :D

I think that this move likely tells us that there really isn't that much money in rod and reel sponsorship, or else KVD wouldn't have made the move. Does anyone know if Quantum is in financial trouble? You may be right in that Lews is a better product, but I love the privateer mentality anyway. I'll take a Daiwa or Shimano reel without sponsorship any day!

It's a poor craftsman who blames his tools.

What are you talking about? They make excellent hammers.
Still waters run deep.
