Well for the most part the season is just about over, up here anyway, for me.
At the beginning of the season, some of had new tackle. I know I did,
I always like to try different/new reels.
How did you folks do with the new reels you got for the season?
One I am very impressed with was the Penn 650ssm, that reel held up fine. Getting dunked, a ton of huge bass and those toothy critters couldn't break down this reel.
I've also heard some neg. commments about my old friend Okuma, and their Epixor baitrunners.
Did anyone have bad experiences with those reels? I always had good comments about them.
Another couple of reels I tried this year were the Okuma, Alumina series. The 55 and 65 size. They as well did very well.
BTW, I used Fireline on the Penn and Alumina's.
What are your comments? We would like to know.
