    Good Deal on MAK 15 SEA

    Erendira 8/1 8/2

    It just isn't worth the hassle. Sometimes people get pulled over by someone that is wearing a cop uniform but is not a cop. Then you are really in trouble.

    HUGE GAP FROM MAKARIS AND REST. OF OKUMA LD REELS

    Yes you can for the development of the Makaira line. But I guess all that knowledge of how to build a superior mid frame reel must have seeped out their ass.

    Erendira 8/1 8/2

    That's why I quit driving in Mexico. The local businesses lose out because of the crooked cops.
