  10. i recently bought a reel on the bst that i have wanted for a long time. a penn 965. no experience to speak of with level winds but i wanted to try. have not yet had a chance to use, but jeez what a sweet little machine. good luck
  11. for whatever it's worth i think i had it in february. got it right after flying to my ship. 2nd sickest i have ever been. (malaria was worse...maybe) high fever and one night i woke up and was very short of breath. i was on my ship. told the mates i would not be standing watches for awhile. took a few days to get over the worst. about 8 maybe 10 days to recover edit: at the time china flu was not on my radar so i did not think that was what it was. if i had known it was kung flu (if in fact it was) i would have gotten away from my crew asap
  12. pretty sure it comes from wuhan
