    Talica 20 or makaira 20 which casts sardines best?

    it all depends on your application i like catching fish on the iron and the higher gear ratios on the tallica works best for me i own a couple of the makairas but they might have the torque but not the smoothness and faster gear ratios needed for the iron
  164. graya

    How many guides should i use for a spiral wrapped rod 7ft 20-40lb?
