Thanks skeeter and thanks guys...
The reels had nothing to do with my birthday, It was just time to re-up with all the new reels out there. I am a tackle hoe when it comes to inshore fishing and fishing the fresh. When it comes to offshore, I use what I got and only bought one conventional reel and one spinning. No need for more equipment, I only get offshore about 6 times a year but I fish inshore and at local lakes at least once a week.
Thanks guys and I do appreciate it.
Jared, what is a cateater?
Oh, another reason I had to buy the reels is that I had purchased all these new Loomis rods and needed something to go on them. Thanks to TJ and Cabelas they are all rigged and ready to go. C you guys soon.
