I love the 5, 10, and 15 LD’s!

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

   There is, but for rough use reels that lay in the bottom of a small boat while headed out or tossed in the back of a pickup uncovered, loaner reels etc.  they work great. I've never cracked a frame on any of them... Jeff

Let's not forget the venerable BeastMaster 30/50 and 50/80 - where it all began!  Wink

An old school reel for sure, !  Cheesy
Helped Shimano on tuning the drags for left coast Tuna, The Beasts of Guadalupe, we’re too much for the original drag curve, many people were not on board with the new line...Spectra!

Many were splashed, a back up rig put to the test,  fun times...
Great Reels, they have caught more than expected over the years...
I still think they are overlooked my many, they have caught many Big Tuna before the Accurates and Avets
Small 2sp’s took over the market.

i started out here in the garage at 7am and it's now 10pm.  time really flies when you are doing something that you enjoy!

Yeah, I hear you. That Islay single malt peeted flavour is a killer. Already own quite a few square inches of land over there.

Didn't know it was popular thing in your neck of the woods Smiley
