I should get the 20/0 by Saturday, I'll see what's going on then.


No matter what, it's always a good feeling when a monster blows up your reel Grin

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

I'm surprised you were able to tell those were on, after building some muscle on those monsters on your latest trip Grin.

The box is here, but I haven't opened it yet. My wife received it and she said the mailman wasn't happy carrying it Grin


Benni, did you ever check the box the last time I sent it to you? There is a stand and a full set of frame posts going back and forth Grin


I could feel it has zero drag , telling me the ears on the washers are gone. Undecided

You wouldn't have been able to catch a minnow as it is now.

I will open it up later on.

I just have to say that I donít know if I have ever seen two more energetic happy guys fishing.  Reading your posts and seeing those smiling faces is some fine entertainment.
Keep up the good work and keep posting your adventures.
  I was reading Sals post on the shredded drag washers, and I was curious about what or how you managed to destroy them?  Then I put two and five together and Sals comment about not wanting to spoil your Luck, thatís when I remembered your thread ďLuckĒ,  and well 90 minutes later and skipping pages by fives until I got up to page 63,  well I knew it would be near the last posts you made but I didnít want to just skip over everything so I went by 5s, and read the page, etcetera until I got here!  Man oh man Iíve watched videos of those Goliath groupers yank people right out of their shoes.  Do you know what your drag pressure was?  Broke two rod holders and shredded the drags.  Best torture test I have read.
