Avet HXW spooled with JB 80 hollow
Avet pro 4/02 rebuilt by Alan Tani (as soon as I get it in the mail) also need line suggestion.
I'll be doing my first long range this year 8+ days I also hit Florida twice a year and Abaco once in a while.
Thanks Rick
If you plan on buying other and more reels down the road, then don't even think about buying off the shelf, go custom, ones that are built buy the builder, not some guy selling a builders rods, you will never get another one to exactly match. I have over $2000 worth of mismatched rods thrown to the side, its all custom for me period!!!!!! This is who I suggest you deal with, what's funny is the you can build with whatever you want, and they will still match the rest,
