*this just in....

like new shimano cardiff 300A FOR SALE!!!*

that was my first thought when i was considering buying the setup. i said to myself "now i just KNOW this thing'll sell quick on BR... then i can get another abu!!!" ;D

i don't know, mike.... this reel looks and feels pretty slick, we'll see how it handles tomorrow. 8-)

The process has begun, soon your brain will be fully controlled by Shimano.....Resistance is futile.

Welcome to the Posse!

(However, I wish you would have gotten the Calcutta 300 or 400 for your swimbaits. The Cardiff may be too light duty, but we'll see.)

well that was a short-lived stint!

took the cardiff out yesterday and just could not deal with throwing a righty-retrieve reel, so the reel's going to bronzeback bomber tomorrow and i'll be heading to cabela's to pick up a round lefty.

gonna look into an ambassadeur or maybe another cardiff/calcutta (per RW's advice...). i actually really liked the cardiff for the short time i did throw it, so we'll see. i've been a big abu fan since i picked up my revo's but this little intro to the posse has been miiiiiighty nice 8-)

Get the Calcutta, you won't regret it.  I currently have a 100B that is awesome.

I am looking for a 400 right now for my future swimbait rig.  You should check e-bay for some deals.  I was bidding on a Calcutta 400 yesterday that went for $127 or so.

The Cardiff 300 is plenty of reel for batin in Mass.

gonna agree with you there burley, especially for the price range. i just checked the calcutta's and they're a little above the amount i'm willing to spend at this point (especially for a stinkin shimano! :) )

plus i just found a lefty cardiff 301A brand new in the box on ebay for $82....
