Any and all two-speed reels going into low gear.
Used to be 0% interest credit cards for one year with no balance transfer fee. Then transfer to a new credit card with 0% interest for another year. Those offers used to come allot and made paying big trips easy. I don't think those offers are around much anymore. I stopped getting them and my credit is immaculate. Owe no one anything. Bizz is paid in cash. Zero payments but mandatory living bills
Going out of gear as soon as the fight is over. Line goes slack and the gaffs are wiggling
You will like it .. But I do like the 2nd gear on the Avet HXJR..
The level wind on a Tranx 500. Reel casts great and super fast retrieve. I can wind like crazy for wahoo and not worry about getting line bowed/high centered.
The sounds my fishfinder makes when there's fish under the boat.
And I also like the sounds people make when they can see fish under the boat while looking at the screen.
I'd have to say getting bit by a bft on my UC monster and have the deck hand come up and say that must be a Randy Penny rod. He knows what's going on!
My bong has this cool pinch in the glass so I can drop ice cubes into it and it makes the hits a little smoother.
The sound of my bones snapping and popping, when that happens I know I got a big fish on the end of my line.
My Suunto Eon Steel dive computer that monitors tank pressure via Bluetooth transmitted from a pod connected to my tank displaying pressure and nitrox blend directly to my monitor without the need for an analog pressure gauge. Keeps everything streamlined.
Justin and Mike on the Excel telling me to "wind,wind,wind" as my bomb gets stopped by a silvery torpedo
When my flat side jig stops on the way down it makes my socks go Up and Down! (Tuna fishing)
You had me at Fleshlight..........
Salukiclaus best fleshlight builder ever
The klunk that the anti reverse makes on my old avet hx 5/2 makes when im winding a diamond jig and a tuna freight trains it.
The sound of my mono or spectra flying off the reel with heavy drag
The sound of line being taken from the fish is my favorite
The resonating purr of the diesels lulling you to sleep as you lay in your bunk heading to the fishing grounds, followed by the R.P.M's dropping letting you know "IT'S TIME TO FISH"
Those are also favorite sounds
The smooth drag, freespool of my Cal Blueprinted ATD 50 when hooked onto a heavy. Cow killer confidence in hand.
Lucked into a accurate 30 loaner.
Got 3 fly line caballito160s on 90# fluoro mid day sun. Cab bite high line mid day fish. What I really liked is how the drag would not slip until the drag should slip for the setting. At first I thought the drag was sticky. But the drag was precise not sticky
Then used a loaner kite rig. With a accurate 50w. 196 pounder dock weighed. Again the drag did not slip until it should. So pressure was applied worry free. Threw me off as I had never fished a reel so precise.
My kite rod was not ready because I was giving my kite turn up to go hoo panga fishing as it was the last day. JBs turn was before mine and he got a cow. So the captain insisted I take my kite turn
Allot of confidence deserved with those reels
