O/T Shimano Fishing reels, Any users or fans in here?
Just thought that seeings we have a thread for everything else here Shimano, id throw out the question if any of my American brothers use Shimano gear to fish with and your thoughts on it?
Im a saltwater lure guide here in oz and ive been sold on Shimano gear for years, not only do they make great bike gear but they make killer precision Fishing reels.
My boat is decked out with Shimano, Stellas, Tiagras, Tyrnos, and Stradics.
Ive used a hell of a lot of top end gear over the years inc, Diawa, and Penn but to be honest Shimano gear leaves the rest for dead, all though i do have a soft spot for the old American made Penn's before they moved their manufacture over seas ...
So i thought id see if Shimano reels were as big over there as they are here in Oz, maybe this thread might get a few interesting posts or maybe it will not get one bite lol, the latter probably seeing this is a biking forum, but just thought id give it a go.
Cheers n happy bikin n fishin...:thumbsup:
