Good problem to have Dwayne!

David, so true

Jeff, welcome aboard

John, thanks, problem is I have 3 that size and have to make another.

I never really got the dorky thing. Here we have a device that does all its predecessors did, while handily improving at least one aspect of both....and we think it "dorky!"
The ability we men have to welcome the complex over sublime function never fails to baffle me.

I hate to admit this, (and don't let my fishing buddies know) but I actually have a few spincasters that I enjoy using!  I know they are dorkey, but they are fun to use and perform pretty good!

Cool rod racks!

@ Dwayne - that's the way I remember them - black plastic.

Comment by Dwayne Denison on January 11, 2012 at 3:25pm

Some of my spincasters. The black 202, I have had since I was a kid

My only comparison can be on the Zebco microcast series and with no questions the Zebco 11 Gold has fished better than the standard...example for me is the line pick up.....the standard required me to place tension on the line to start pick-up but not on the gold series yet.....I'm hoping the durability will be there....

Comment by Dwayne Denison on January 8, 2012 at 5:09pm

Jeff, is there any difference in the gold and platinum, compared to standard? I know they have more bearing, but do they work bettter?

Comment by Jeffrey D. Abney on January 8, 2012 at 5:07pm

Another decent microcast in my arsenal....made by Shakespeare and I fish this one with four pound test.....smallest line I ever use with all my "river monsters" lurking....LOL
