Baja Specials are great. I have 3, and they can't be beat for best combination of modern technology and beautiful craftsmanship of the whole reel, but particularly the bakelite side plates. How many of you know exactly how the tool and die guys do that? Don't bullshit me, how many of you know exactly? Also love my first generation Torques in all three sizes, beasts! THEN, my 16VSX hot-rodded by Cal and Eric Sheets. A winch, yet you can cast a sardine. Mine has 600 yards of 100# Cortland hollow, plus a 30 yard topshot. Also love my MTL specials.Baja Special... simple, strong, made in usa
525 Mag... excellent caster, beefy drags, landed a 40# class BF on it this year, made in usa
Jigmaster... the hot rod of all hot rods, the mods are endless, made is usa ( at least the older ones that are still a dime a dozen )
Of course they do!!!! You know your history.Do Ocean City's count?
