.Selling some of my reels. Check them out HERE


* (19 August 2021) Holding a free reel giveaway as a thank you to the smelly fishos community. Click HERE, and hope this will provide you with some fun which I think we all need right now.

* (17 August 2021) Will be publishing a new review within weeks. Not Shimano or Daiwa this time, rather an extremely intersting reel by another brand that I've been testing for 10 months, and am finally ready to share my findings.

* (30 July 2021) Had an initial look inside the 2021 Spheros SW-A; body has the same improved full sealing of the Saragosa SW-A, it now has two ball bearings for the drive gear, and the drive train is the same as the Saragosa's. As usual, drag is less capable than the Saragosa's, no backup stop in big ones, and this time the line roller of the Spheros runs on synthetic bushings. Considering the reduced price, this could become the new bearer of the title "best value of all spinning reels", pending real life testing and performance verification of course.

* (24 July 2021) A major fishing show just wrapped up and a number of new reels that were exhibited are on their way to me right now. First such deliveries in almost two years and couldn't be more childishly excited!! Hoping that soon action will get back to pre-pandemic levels, although flying to fish remains as challenging as it's been since that apocalyptic event began.

* (15 July 2021) Wrote a few words on the new Twin Power SW and Certate SW. Go to the Blog page and click the top title.

* (12 July 2021) Just sent this reply to another reader who got scammed by a fake tackle shop CLICK. I send 3 or 4 replies like it each week, and it kills me every time. If you're new to this site, make sure to read these articles FIRST and SECOND.
