RE: Rush

I had not looked at the Rush, although I have no doubt that it is a good product. The reason for my post is that I had an old cheapo Cabelas small arbor I fished with for a few years, and while recently pricing an Abel, I started trying to remember a lost fish that I could attribute to a reel shortcoming as opposed to something else like a poor hookset or a mistake when playing the fish. This made me wonder why I am considering spending yet another few hundred dollars on a reel rather than spending $40 on a basic reel and focusing on fishing better. The Standard just seemed a nice classic reel.
