Big thanks to Ted for allowing me to join his Maxed Out family!
I can’t describe how much I love my new reel and had to share!

No drag insert on this one, it has 3.25 to 1 gears, Todd, but probably will in the future. I have six 4/0 now with insert kits, all ss internals, 4.1 to 1 ss gears, but haven't done drag numbers yet, waiting on the right scale to test.

That is one, sweet reel DC!!

 Ted's been making quality parts for quite some time now.

What makes it even better is they're Made in the good old USA. Pretty tough to beat that!!

Those are crappy. Best thing you can do is send it to me for extended field tuning and I will shoot you down a 309 I have with mismatched plates and missing levelwind. That ought to be a fair exchange. I'm gonna retire soon in about 15 years and will send back to you then Smiley
