Hit the nail on the head. Each to their own I reckon. Do what makes you happy!

IMO they are tools and it is a case of using the right tool for the job.

Yep people here try to be helpful and part of that is value for money when it comes to purchasing fishing gear.

Well why stop at the Normal Exist then when you can Get the 50th anniversary edition @ a cool $1200.
They dont come up for sale that often..
Since you have money to burn i reckon this has to be the reel for sure.. bugger the stella

Thats a lot of money for flathead, but at the end of the day the cost is all relative to how much money you have, life is like a sh*t sandwich the more bread you have the less sh*t you eat.
