Hi Jeff. I do have two of Tooty's set up. Trust me. The setup worth every penny. If I have the money, I would have gotten all of Tooty's collection. However, family, life, and events, I could only limit myself. Tooty is truly a unique breed that value the vintage's strength and ability to provide the anglers' the enjoyment of the catch, without worrying about the destruction of the gears.
HEY JEFF, GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. NO I know you are a busy guy and all especially with a young one leaving the nest!!!!! You better hurray up cause Master Leo on the left coast has already spoken for some items and will hold them for him till the cows come home. Give a call 815-539-6596 anytime and if I remember right you are up by the city?
