* (4 April 2022) Guess what? Click. That's me flying south to where the giants swim, for the first time in 2 years free from critically timed pre-flight Covid tests, invasive locator forms, and post arrival quarantine risks. Heck, I don't even have a mask on my face which might not exactly be the official rules but cabin crews have been giving us the 'wink' when mentioning that masks are required. I put writing on hold for now since I can finish up reviews any time, and will instead use this chance to fish as hard as I can and test several reels. Hoping this year will see a return to my pre-pandemic levels of content output :)

* (28 January 2022) Tackle prices in the USA are going to increase to compensate for the inflation and reduced purchase power of the US dollar. Since some of the Top Picks are categorised by price, certain adjustments will be needed to maintain the tables' accuracy. Depending on how big the increases are, I might also need to redefine what terms such as "budget reels" or "mid priced reels" mean in dollar amount. Will not rush to make these changes though and will instead wait for the dust to settle, therefore there is going to be a period of mismatching in listed prices and descriptions.

* (25 January 2022) It's been only 3 days since Daiwa and Shimano merely announced their latest generation flagship freshwater reels, and I'm already being asked whether the 2022 Exist or the 2022 Stella is a better reel! Always wait for proper evaluation after lengthy usage of production reels. Anything short of that would be misleading speculations that you should never seek or count on.
