Most of my ultralite stuff. A couple underspins, and a spinning reel, all in great shape. I'll be bringing in the rods next week. Might try some Rage or maybe TFO stuff out.

I'm going down to the Gurnee store the last weekend for the vendor booths, but unfortunately the trade-ins will be done by then.

I've been using lefty reels for pitching since the early 90s - anyone remember the old Daiwa Black Widows? "High speed 5:1 ratio, and they had a single brass bushing, LOL. This 201E7 is going on a Dobyns DX744. As far as only Daiwa goes, I actually own three CI4s, and old white Stradic, and a couple Calcuttas. One of my all time favorite reels is a 200B that I customized:

Looks good. I bought a Chronarch on Saturday. I went in with the intention of either a Corado or Revo SX and ended up with the Chronarch.

best looking reel made!!! looks like what a storm trooper would use if he fished. I have 11 of them but mine are green. I must say though that the new chronarch feels much more refined than the curado e. am i right? I picked up a curado g5 and g6. tried them out today. they are nice reels but no where near the e series. but I did get 55.00 off per reel. I live in monroe la about 90 miles from this years classic location and I picked up the curados there and yes shimano did offer an additional 30 off per reel by mail in rebate.

They don't feel any different. The spool has a textured anodized finish, though.

That Calcutta B is very nice, one of the better round reels made. I wouldnt mind having a few of those in the boat.

I traded in 5 older Quantum's & Diawa's all in great working order, and bought a BPS PQ & Pflueger Spinning reel, going to trade about 5 rods but only buy 2 new rods, time to clean out the closet for a good cause

Hello, let me know what you think of those after you have fished them because I wouldnt mind knowing if it is worth going out and trying them. If you don't mind me asking how much do those run at bps.

179.99 with the reel trade-in deal, + shimano has $30 mail-in rebate going on certain reels also.

199.99 - $30 for a trade in reel - $30 Shimano mail in rebate = $139.99.

I think the trade in ends today or tomorrow - check your local store. You bring a reel in for them to donate to kids, and they knock a certain amount off the reel you buy.

I think if I had it all to do over again, all I'd own are Calcutta Bs. Reels built to last a lifetime. As it stands, I own but one, but it is my favorite.

Thanks for the heads up on the trade in ending today. I was planning on going on Friday till I read this last night. I woke up this morning to make the trip and picked up the new carbonlite. I thought about picking up chronarch 50e but decided I would save the money and use it to upgrade my current curado 50e.
