Reel Giveaway
« on: May 01, 2019, 09:33:00 PM »
I'm giving away the two SixGill baitcaster reels that I bought a couple months ago. Initial post on those is here...http://forum.finsandfur.net/index.php?topic=20690.msg224612.msg#224612

I gave one away on Facebook tonight, and the other one I'll give away here.
They're actually not as bad as I initially made them out to be. Granted my first impression out of the box before I had a chance to use them was unfair. They do work nicely and I caught fish on one of them. I just don't like the way they feel and want something a little more quality.
Speaking of that my new Lews showed up in the mail tonight to add to my Arsenal.

Anywho! If any of you is interested in the SixGill Cyclone baitcaster, reply to this post and on the 15th I will have a drawing for the winner.

Put my name in the hat.

I've been holding back, thinking y'all farther east have more use for this type of reel than I do but I have two very specific kinds of fishing I do where this reel is ideal and way better than the spinning reels I've been using.

Send it my way, I will try it out in the salt.

Voice of experience:  if a reel does not specifically say that it is for salt water, do not use it in salt water.  I had a medium low price range Daiwa spinning reel the right size for steelhead and sockeye salmon, and used it for about three hours in salt water from my kayak one time.  It took me an over an hour to drive home so it was likely two hours after fishing that I washed it in fresh water with a garden hose as I do all gear after using in the salt.  The next morning when I went to put the dried gear away, the reel made a LOUD grinding noise when I turned the handle and felt rough rather than smooth turning. It still worked but after more washing (too late) and a few uses as a back-up reel I got rid of it.  I replaced it with a Cabela's brand Salt Striker made to handle salt water.

Jim,  Thanks for the donation, but if I might make a suggestion for the future (should there be one) get a container with a larger opening.   :innocentwhistle:      :innocentwhistle:      :innocentwhistle:
