  1. Boom!
  2. Do people really eat these fish?
  3. What is with the spinner kick at Penn. How about upgrading the Fathom line or some new model bait casters. Not holding my breath.
  4. Sounds like a real Jim Gillmore move. This guy is a POS. P.S Who eats Blue fish? Is there really a market for them?
  5. 26 more days. No hints yet.
  6. I am hoping I am not disappointed this year, but I won't hold my breath. Dom
  7. The Andros does not have a thrust bearing. It would be great if it did. I don't know how well they cast or how smooth the drag is. It would also be a great addition if Penn would add some external cast controls to all the Fathoms. At least the 15 and 25n LD's and 12 to 25 Star drag reels. I know you can mag them or get them magged, but this should have already been done by Penn. Dom
  8. 36 more days, I wonder how long we will have to wait for some hints? Dom
  9. 39 more days until icast 2018.
  10. I own a battle II and a fierce BR. They are brand new and they are not the smoothest reel by far that I've owned. These are the cheaper of the peen spinners and to be honest, they are not as smooth as say a Diawa or Shimaino, Lews, quantum etc..... for the same price point. The Penn's seem to be built well and that's probably their strong point. My best friend had issues with an SSV's loosing its smoothness and I had to replace all bearings and the Crank gear to get it back to its original smoothness. Dom
  11. I spoke with my buddy, and he can do what he likes. Thank again. Dom
  12. So we were fishing yesterday and the reel is smooth on the cast and retrieve. When it hooks up and cranks in, it rough you can feel the gears grinding. I am not replacing the gears on this reel. He might as well buy a new one. It will not be an SSV. Thanks for all the help.. Dom
  13. Can you get more then 33 lbs of drag out of these reel? Also would you know if they make these bearings for the Andros and or the the Avet? Would they help? Dom
  14. New Bearings are in. The Reel is now quiet. He will be happy. Thanks again all. Dom
  15. In my opinion, Penn really missed the bus on this one. They should have magged the fathom similar to the Squall. A shame really. P.S This years Icast 2017 was a real let down. All the same stuff. Some manufactures just put pretty handles on older reels and called them new. Dom
