pretty sure this is what eveyones using on bobby a's these days.

bout 10 yrs ago when i bought my first rail gun i niggerrigged an omer reel for my ra but went back to a floatline after too many tangles. a good reel is better than a float line in my opinion but then you have to carry ya fish on you. bit of a 50/50 call

Nothing worse than a boat with 4 spearos using float lines though.

I'm with dumper, the barracuda reels the bluewater spearo club use are the ducks guts. Know a few guys who use them and swear by them.

They would get kicked out of club if they used anything else ;)

Isn't half the club various paxmans and his son in law?
