Just added a new arsenal to my bag of tackles.
Got my first "serious kick butt", "don't play play", Abu Garcia Reel tonight. A Record40. Henry was so impressed that I know about the record, didn't even needed him to intro to me. He gave a very good price. Very honest chap, this guy. From what I read, it was even lower than getting from Joe's. Guess he knows I am not the bargaining sort, so just 1 number, I happy, I get :).

Well, at 200+, this is certainly a record for my most "expensive" reel. All ye Fishes, beware.
