Sorry I missed your call, I didn't expect a reply so soon. It is not that I don't like them, I bought them first to get started with in the tuna game. I was able to get Penn internationals more quickly than I first thought.
When used, they worked fine, I think they are well worth the money esspecially compared to the Gold hardware.
they are selling on ebay all day long at like 99-110 just to let ya know. Go online and check em out (btw, they are new!) have yers ever been used? send me some pics that you sent moffa, i might need one! (only one pole set up to run a 50!)
