Hey maybe it's because 16 of my reels are levelwinds that whenever I read someone say they're a ticking time bomb it makes me wonder if they know something I don't...which isn't too difficult. On the other hand 16 of my reels wouldn't be levelwinds if they had blown up on me...although honestly speaking I haven't caught gazillions of fish.

The bottom line so far is you guys have caught a lot of fish with your levelwinds with little if any problems. From what I've read from time to time I really expected there to be a string of posts complaining how the levelwind blowout cost the "fish of a lifetime" to get away.

Personally, I hope I don't catch the fish of a lifetime until I'm almost done fishing. Once you catch the fish of a lifetime, what's next? But I digress....
