A strong Surf Reel for Cape Cod Blues and Stripers.
August 9, 2014
I have been fan of Shimano reels for a long time and was really anxious to try out their long cast offerings.
I mounted mine on a 10' Surf Rod and filled with 20 lb. braid.
At first glance, I liked what I saw. The system is completely new and innovative and looks like it will deliver less
fouled line, time will tell, but I'd bet on it. The lighter weight is remarkable next to my array of surf outfits. I long
ago gave up on automatic bails and appreciate that they did too. I'm surprised that they kept the anti-reverse,
although, that can be convenient. Overall, I'm impressed and look forward to testing the strengthened drag.
I feel that my money is well spent on new Shimano technology.
