I got a few high end conventional rods that I have never seen the water. Tbh I have never even tried using any before. Because I have heard it's alot harder to use. But last night I met an old timer at FINS who suggested I give it a try. To say the least the guy seemed to be able to cast as far as I could , but with much better accuracy. Again this will be my first attempt at using a non spinning reel. So I'm just looking for something to get started with. That is also easy to use.

 

Thanks gents

I have a made in Japan Omoto

Hubillie with cast control, used once. Comes with extra brakes and take down tool.

I would consider this a beginners reel. $80.00 shipped.

Was he using mono or braid? What size rod will this be paired with?

Model and price please. I know next to nothing about non spinning reals. On another note that drink looks pretty refreshing, is this some Jedi mind trick:howdy:. Reel looks sexy btw :beatin:.
