Abu just released this year a new hyper speed low profile heavy duty reel,
the "Beast". About $350.00.

Yes Okumas and Quantums are hard to find locally, and pretty well have to
get from the States. I bought the set up early partly due to the dollar thing.
Figure prices should go up soon.

It should be good for tossing an Alabama rig too, have always wanted to try
one of those ( made legal for Ontario... 4 single hooks max. of course ).  :)

I bit the bullet and ordered an Okuma Citrix 350 today from Amazon with the power handle. With the exchange rate it should come in at $180 Canadian. I live right on the border and will pick it up in the states. I was looking at the Lexa also but the Citrix's gear ratio was more along the lines of what I needed and was available through Amazon. Looking forward to it! Hopefully I don't have buyers remorse once I get to the Montreal outdoor show in a couple of weeks!

Just a 4 1/2 month wait till Buzzing for Muskie time, can't wait.
Think I gained a few points for ipop's game of " whoever has
the most fishing gear before they die wins ".
Oh yeah I like parrots too.  :)
