14 April 2016 - 08:11 AMIn all honesty I did end up returning the reel that I did not pay for. I went to the customer service counter and had them double check my order to make sure I wasn't charged for 2 reels. I'm not going to lie though. I was tempted to keep the reel. The reel in question was an Abu Garcia Winch in the left hand model. The reel retails for $199.99. I was actually interested in how many people would of actually kept a free reel.
09 April 2016 - 08:18 AMWhich brand of flourocarbon line are you using on your baitcasters? I've tried it on mine twice and it would cast like crap. I know I tried seagar and I'm pretty sure I also tried the bass pro brand.
08 April 2016 - 09:40 AMNice job on the fish.
08 April 2016 - 09:37 AMI wouldn't over think it. I don't really see smallmouth as being line shy. I've managed to catch a few on braided line with a wire leader. If you plan on casting crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and lipless baits it's going to be more of a reaction bite. For slower presentations like tubes, wacky rigged worms, drop shoting, jerkbaits then I can see where using a leader in clearer water can play a factor.
07 April 2016 - 10:23 AMwhat kind of reel is it anyways?
i think i'd end up keeping it and just assume that it was an accident on their end for giving me a second, free reel. i've been given an extra item before by accident when ordering from cabels. didnt return it and didnt feel bad. still use it lol. if its someone elses they'll eventually call in for it and end up getting another one anyways.
but ultimately its up to you. most here are suggesting to return it. im just giving another perspective.
It's a Abu Garcia Revo Winch in the left hand model.
