    Best $40 ever!

    Picked up a JX this morning from the factory service. Thank you George and the technicians that rebuilt my reel. Works far better(25-30%) across the board than when new. Reel is going into third decade of service. I bought it 2007-2008. I have used it a lot in the 40-50 bait role. Bought...

    Makira spinning.

    Are they any good? Want something comparable to Stella 14000 and 18000(thousand, not hundred, right?). I don't want to bite the bullet on the Shimano even though there are some deals available. Also, I try to avoid their stuff.

    What a great service experience at Avet this morning! Maria was awesome. She had my thrashed LX rebuilt in 20 minutes; polished and free spool spinning like a perpetual motion machine. Also, got EX series clamp nuts and the composite reel clamps. Thanks again for the great service!

    SURFACE IRON ROD THROW DOWN!!! Truline versus Roddy

    I've got two Roddy jig sticks- both from unwrapped blanks that had never seen the light of day until a three years ago: fishing 40# & 50#. But I think I favor the Trulines more because of versatility. I have Truline jig sticks to fish 25#, 30#, 40#, 50# and 60# surface iron. Don't think Roddy...
