Fliffy,



I like the reel. Had one many years ago but--Just a friendly suggestion...check the posting rules.



Best regards,

Irv

Irv thought I might be in violation of a rule that says not to post things here that you may be trying to sell elsewhere but this is not the case. I only posted it here but upon investigation I did find my exact post at a site called " Fishing Pipe". I contacted them an they took it off saying that it happens all the time, that they cancelled posters membership, and apologized but gave no real explaination.
Anyone else ever have this issue?
