Thanks for the replies. I've found some for less than 65 bucks so I don't think I can go wrong with ordering a few. I've used Abu Garcia reels for the last 40 plus years, but haven't used many of their rods except for a couple of Vendettas. Think I'll give the Veritas a try.
I just got rid of all my Veritas and went to St Croix,,,,,,
but for $65 I would put some back in my lineup.
Share the wealth,,,,,where can you order for less than $65 ???? new ???
