(NEW REELS ADDED) Selling some of my reels. Check them out HERE



* (23 September 2022) Next review is yet another evaluation of a reel for the budget-minded anglers, making it the third such review in a row. Keep that in mind so you won't call me a snob when I shift gears and spend most of next year doing expensive reels. You'll essentially have your minds blown in 2023 once you see what's been cooking in virtual silence.

* (31 August 2022) Received some prototype/exhibit pieces that were on display in a recent trade show, and in my opinion the amount of quality and value for our money has never been this good in the entry and mid levels, and apparently a potential game-changer higher up the chain seems to have flown under the radar virtually unnoticed and unadvertised. Of course it's all pending testing and fishing actual production versions, but I feel that 2023 will be a remarkable year.

* (24 August 2022) Finished and published a review of the 2021 Shimano Spheros SW-A. Click HERE to read it, and hope you'll enjoy it.

* (19 July 2022) Finally some serious action CLICK HERE. Years ago I warned you that many tackle brands were posting mass fake 5 stars' ratings on sites such as Amazon and Trustpilot among others, including -sadly- some major brands that were historically respected. Have a look at my article if you haven't yet seen it HERE.

* (12 July 2022) For ICAST show Daiwa is releasing the "Free Swimmer" reel, a free-linning spinner targeting the dominance of Shimano's Baitrunner reels. Should be interesting to watch.
