Rowdy, I have a couple of fenwicks also so I understand your comment on reel weight same as rod designated weight. The old and most the new glass are allot heavier than plastic though.
Now I will add the BBS is a killer reel, and the Mid Arbor for those in the cooler areas as less pigtailing.

I still use the Medalist on cane rods. (old ones) Too bad they're made in Asia now.

I decided to save every dime possible for 2008, and found these reels on
closeout for $200 each. Now I have to be frugal again
