Question for J Francho

Recommended Posts

You mentioned a center pin reel in another thread. What do you use this thing for?

The reason I ask is, last year, in a fit of insanity, I bought an Alvey reel and matching rod. It holds about half a brazillion yards of 12lb test.

I was using it to throw a C-rig about three times as far as I could throw the same rig on my best casting baitcaster, and having a blast, laughing my arse off at how far I could sling this thing.

So, what the heck is it really meant for?

Thought I'd ask somebody who just might know.

Centerpins can basically freespool giving extended drag free drifts on rivers.  They allow a guy to step into the top of a hole and drift an egg sack through the entire hole plus the run below it tangling lines with everyone within a hundred yards of them.
