    Pretty sweet real Marvin :D

Wink I'm sorry, but I didn't see your comment before. Thank you! I'm super excited! I've never owned a "higher end" reel before. Almost feels like I'm upgrading to a Tesla Model X!

I'm also fascinated at the Jackall Pompadour top water lure. They are introducing a smaller version "Pompadour Jr". Has anyone tried them yet?

I never got around to using mine. Wink threw his quite a bit. Noisy little bugger

Wanna sell it, Adam? ;)

I was looking to pick up a couple of Pompadours but after doing some homework on my part, I might go with the Heddon Crazy Crawler and/or the Tiny Crazy Crawler. For about 1/4 the cost(Sail), it's worth a try.

They ought to call that lure the freestyle, or the Michael Phelps.

Love the action on this lure but not loving the price tag. Can't seem to find a store that carries them but Ebay is selling the jr. for 28.96 + 10.76 shipping!!   :o :o :o

I'm looking for a saltwater reel. I seem to submerge my reel quite often fishing from the kayak (not good when fishing in saltwater). Le Baron's has a Daiwa "Opus" deal on now for $63.00.

i am looking at getting a baitfeeder reel but i dont want or need the shimano quality/cost for carp. looking at the small penn.
 
i also want to get the fin nor lethal 60 spinning reel for a deep rigger reel. its has a 30lb max drag so it should be able to handle a 8 lb drag setting without burning out from king runs. plan to put on 1000ft of 15lb indicator braid, i will be able to fish it till the fleas show up when the water warms. i am getting away from levelwinds trolling in the yak.

Ya I looked on eBay. Reel runs 450-700$ depending on quality and size. Was just curious if anyone had a link for them.
