    At first, I was thinking "Oh. $300 bucks isn't bad at all." Then I read it again and realized it said $300 over standard pricing and instantly put my credit card away.

    They could at least throw in a free set of nippers as a token of appreciation for the butt raping they just gave you.

    Just what I need, to get searched by all law enforcement while on the water. It would kill the buzz and paranoia would kick in. Not cool. Unless I'm in Colorado

    Pretty cool looking reel, but way over my budget!
