What new rod and/or reel did you get for Christmas??

Recommended Posts

I got a Shimano Compre 6'6" MH rod and a BPS Extreme baitcasting reel to go on it, and some Berkley Transitions fluorocarbon line for it.  Casts smooth as glass out in the back yard, 60 anf 70 foot casts with just a flip of the wrist, and I KNOW I can hit 130 feet if I put my arm into it from the experimenting I did last fall using the same model reel.  

Gonna get another Compre rod in a day or so with some cash I got for another gift.  Probably another rod identical to the first one, to go with the other Extreme reel I got here as well.

What did you guys get?? ;)

St. Croix Avid and a Pflueger Supreme.

Will be in the 50's and 60's this weekend. Tommorow starts my jig education.

Heading out now to get some Power Pro and maybe a few cranks.

Curado 200E7. Handle is on the wrong side, so looks like I have an excuse to go to the tackle shop. Going to look past all of my other reels being daiwa and give it a shot.  ;)

I got some cash! 210

With the money I got a Johnny Morris Signature Series Limited Gold baitcast reel for 100 (on sale, most the time it's 170), and a 7' Berkly lightning rod for 20. Just got out of the yard from casting, ssssmmmoooottthhh!! Man oh man the change from a 3 barring to 10 barring is unbelievable!! It cast a mile even a light 1/4 oz weight (most the time I was casting a spro frog). I hope I get to go fish today!!   ;)

Quantum Tour Edition PT 1171 and a good supply of Cabela's Gift Cards.  Technically, the Fenwick HMG MH spinning rod is for my birthday in about 4 weeks :o  I'm at least 3 months away from getting from using them ;)

I scored some cash on christmas day, and splurged on another Anniversary edition Zillion at Bass Pro.  I was looking real hard at the Skeet Revo.  It was one of the smoothest reels I've ever handled.  The Zillion seems to have slightly tighter tolerances and feels very smooth and refined, but the Skeet Revo has that extra butter feel like the calais (The one on display at BPS did anyway).  

I also found some deals at Academy:

Bang for $1.88....I bought 8 cans

Kick-n-Bass for $1.88   Bought 3 bottles

Boogie Baits in Lavendar shad for $2.88  Bought three

That is it for 'fishing' stuff.
