Good call on the Tioga! Forgot all about them but they definitely make the grade in affordabilty and reliability.
Welcome to the forum!
I like Ross reels a lot but had problems with them standing up to the salt... freshwater they rock. Have you used them much in SWFF? If they made new improvements to combat SW corrosion problems I would be glad to hear about them.
