Hey Mark
That's the wrong type of reel for the fish I'll be chasing. It will get wet in due course. Just retired so I will have some time to get a new bamboo built this winter.
I need something with a decent drag to stop the carp. Been fishing for bass with the long rod for 50 years and have never had one on the reel. Not one and I have caught my share of big bass.
