    I've got one hoping to have a conventional that would cast as well as my spinners. It didn't work out as welll as I'd hoped. It didn't get quite the distance that my Stellas do and every now and again (too often) I would get a bird's nest in spectra. A joy with an expensive popper on the water. I don't think Shimano uses exactly the same cast control on the Trinisthat they use on the Calcuttas. Hope yours works out better. If anyone wants to try one I've got one, used once, CHEAP.

    No, it's a 30. Think it might work better with mono. Was thinking about putting 100 yards of 50 momoi diamond on it and giving it another fling.

    Yea it might work, I remember you didn't give it to long of a try either on the Big E last summer.
