Spooled Using Sportsman Innovation's Large Fishon Line Spooler!

Today my first large shipment of fishing gear arrived for 2020. Not new products for me to evaluate & field test but rather items i requested to try on my own & to field test & to enjoy as an angler. I had several Mustad Gear Bags, Casting Rods, Surf Casting Spinners to Soft Steel line. Earlier it was Fishing Apparel & decals. Next week my new released Mustad lures will hopefully arrive w/casting jigs & asst hooks.

I requested the high speed Helios for my new spin casting rod that also arrived. Also another ultra-lite spinner with several all purpose Surf Casters. For anyone still debating if they should get a line spooler, go get one! It's like owning your own bowling ball spinner so you don't have to hit a Pro Shop to get your bowling balls cleaned or polished. I'm really loving it!

For a 10ft spin casting rod i got a-
Okuma HSX-40S Spinning Reel
8HPB + 1RB
5.8:1 Ratio
32.1in per Turn
13lb Max Drag
