Disappointed in the Tm display and lack of knowledge from the guy working the electronics counter at BPS. Did so much reading up on different models, PROS/CONS of different ones and then getting ZERO help from an actual person at the store, my head hurts. Decided on the Maxxum 65#. It seems like a sturdy, well constructed TM with a good frame design.
You are right Steeze, BPS is it, looked for a price match opportunity, no one carries a 65 Maxxum 'cept them. At $600, just couldnt see anything that seemed to be a better deal around that price point. Terrovas are nice but I would have kicked in some serious $$$ to make up the difference in the gift card and price of a Terrova. After I get the Max on, I'll probably just throw the Riptide on here and make a deal with someone.
Appreciate all the feedback and PMs!
