This week I received a new Pflueger wide spool ARBOR reel in the small size (8.5 0z, capacity with 4# mono-170 yds) from Cabelas. Wow, what a superb casting tool this is for jigs down to 1/32 oz(the heaviest I generally use is 1/18 oz)! And the wide spool, in addition to increasing casting distance, seems not to cause those unexpected, obnoxious loops to tangle on the spool (at least I haven't had a single one yet!). The drag is truly excellent, as witnessed by the fact that I got my largest carp ever yesterday (without a picture no one will believe me anyway, but suffice it to say that eyeballing him at my feet,prior to release, a YARDSTICK wouldn't have been nearly sufficient to get its length!!!) on a microspoon during a give-n-take 20 minute battle! The reel is a smooth working, attractive little muscle machine!!
