  461. bobsled

    Which Makira

    Well, that's up to you, but for the $20 difference between the two series I would get the SEa if it meant increased performance (even if slightly). You'll find out when you send the Penns to Cal, $20 is nothing for a hotrodded reel out of the box.
  462. bobsled

    Which Makira

    ^ ^ The SEa versions are Special Edition. Basically all that means is they come hotrodded from the factory, i.e. open spool bearings with TSI301 for smoother feel spool, lager handles, more clearance between spool and cross bars and stuff like that.
