Re: Are all reels created equal?

FCO are supplied locally.
Marine deals import
Torpedo7 import

Re: Are all reels created equal?

Just remember that NZ has little buying power apposed to overseas. perceived ripping people off over here is border line amusing. Anything... and I mean anything can be sourced cheaper from overseas. Pays to remember that on occasion. Best thing they can do is start to impart import tax on ANYTHING...

This shark gets around...Can't possibly be two sharks out there, surely? "Waikanae beachgoers are being warned to keep out of the water after a shark was spotted off Waikanae Beach. Kapiti police said the 1.5-2 metre long shark was cruising around at the Pekapeka end of the beach. Beachgoers had be...
