I'm saving up for a Okuma Sheffield, I eventually want to actually float fish with a real reel lol
Save yur money an go with the step higher. I have the same reel an I think it is to light an have to hit hard to retrieve from fast current. But that's my opinion. I love the reel but I love to fish in fast an big waters with heavy flow. Wow sounds like my women. Lol anyways if you like small creeks with little current. It's great I'm sure you will have many more opinions to help yur decision But it's my MY ONLY PEVE WITH IT.
Discussing a rivers visibility isn't against the rules. We don't want to go to the extreme otherwise this might get uncomfortable like another forum we all know. Which has an unfriendly atmosphere to say the least.
This form has already got to that point of no return BECAUSE of all the bickering. I no longer can get a straight answer about anything anymore because of these so called fisherman.
