Re: A note for Daiwa reels

:x You know my stance on this Mike. I'm very particular with what reels I like and use. Each time I purchase I am after a reel for a specific purpose with specific features. And unfortunately given the limited range on the market in NZ these aren't available here. It's a risk I'm going to have to ta...

Re: Viking Reload review by US based Kayak Fish magazine

Well it just goes to show you can't please everyone. I haven't noticed any of the flexing or wallowing you talk about Hookit. I would've thought being 135kgs, carrying what sometimes is a ridiculous amount of fish, all the tackle to support 5 rods, battery and sounder. Not to mention the lunch to fu...
