  5. ducky

    ducky maybe one day...

    calcutta 700 for the rock work, i started with 535 but the frame cracked, i was happy with it till then so tried the 252 mag extra just 2 small i thought so then the slosh30 really nice to cast, but now more than happy with the calcutta.

    cliff tops, which i fished for the first time at bempton last nite. i got a new 9000c 2speed, but its the the old one (1979/80) brass end plates. what a reel. it the first time it has been used yesterday since it was made.

    the reels i am using now have suffix sup on 30lb with 80lb shock leader, personly i think the suffix is far better than the sensor,

    I haven't got one myself Glenn but I've seen how tough and well made they are. Gary got his big jack trevaly in using one so I have no doubt it could handle anything the UK could throw at it.

    All in all for me the Avet reels take a hell of a lot of beating

    Any abu supporters tried the new 7500i CT Elite? Supposed to be everything we've been waiting for ( except perhaps the weight) with non bending spindle and brass side plates.

    525's for most of my rough ground fishing but when it gets seriously snaggy i use a 7500.

    My new fathom 25 is a nice bit of kit :yes:

    very similar to the x torque in shape and design but lighter.

    Its a big reel that sits quite high on the rod, a bit higher than a 535 so that may be a problem for those with small hands.

    It cast very very smooth but is a bit quick even with all brake blocks engaged. I tamed mine with thick oil in the bearings and a single static 8mm magnet glued inside the side plate :wink:

    Its got a very powerful retrieve too and a nice reel for 35 or 40lb straight through :happy:

    The build quality of the Avet is the absolute tops , its spot on and should last for years , you cant say that about the Calcuttas

    Penn Battle... Tough as old boots nothing flash but does what it says on the tin, which I can't say for my Diawa 6000t's..
