    Louie , that's a 13 fishing omen 7'3 heavy , daiwa tatula ct , 7:1 and 50 lb power pro.
    I can pull the bigguns out of the nastiest junk around and boat flip most.

    Thought I seen the Tatula. You like that casting system on the reel ?

    I love the magforce braking ! I had curado E series and sold all of those to buy tatulas ct's and ct type R's. I know shimano will discontinue parts for those curados before long , so I figured just get rid of them now.
    If you buy a tatula make sure you read the set up instructions , it's simple but different.

    I'm looking at the Daiwa new line up. I've been hearing good things.

    How about the line guide ? Help with casting ?

    I think the line comes off smoother for sure , you're not constantly looking down to see if the line guide is centered or near centered before you cast.

    What about the gators? Seems to me that it would be a constant battle trying to keep from getting bit, especially in the slop! I had one hit a worm the other day, about a 3-4 footer. Once I figured out what it was I just let it break the line. Luckily I was fishing mono! <((((><
