I have a CFO that is retiring whom of which I LOVE. I absolutely adore this guy - just a good cat.

My coworker and I have a budget of about $100 each wanting to buy him a retiring present. I know he loves fishing - and woo hoo - so do I! (who knew with me posting here, eh?)

I asked him what he would like in terms of fishing and he finally relented that one can never have too many decent reels. I am a spinning reel user and have NO idea what kind of bait casting reels are decent, and which are expensive purely because of the name of who is endorsing it.

The budget is not in stone - if it is $275 who cares? I was thinking a cute idea would be a baitcaster, some different types of line and a tool to cut the line that would actually slice through it (rather than the dull Swiss army knife I have had to use to hack through a braided fishing line to change a lure.)

Any ideas????

I have a $50 Abu Garcia Black Max I got from Walmart that has done me nothing but great things. Then you can spend the other 50 on a nice rod

Something old and rare. An old Swedish made Abu Garcia matched to his type of fishing (Cat, Bass, top water) in great shape and then sent to a TFF Abu guru for restoration, new bearings maybe. It'll become his favorite reel.

He may never see another one like it. And they are great reels. All I own, all I need.

Just post a WTB ad in classified. The pop up regularly. Need to do a little research though and decide which kind. Oh, budget of $100 might do it.

Do you know where the classified is at or should I start a new topic in the rods and reels category? I don't want to make the natives restless. Sometimes forum people lose their shiz when you post in the wrong spot! smile I have a week to get it so I should be able to find one!!! GREAT IDEA!!!

Oh, I see, newbie, you can't post in classified. Yeah, go in OT and ask if ask if anybody has an old one to spare, might ask a mod first.

Jerry Foran has some awesome ambassadeurs (new & used) on his website. www.hookless.com

He just built a custom 4500c with 7 ball bearings and a clicker for me.

Check him out. Real nice guy too.
