    One of my friends from England has shelved his Shimano reels. In favor of the Tronixpro Reels of similar size....He likes them that much and they average less than half the price......I wish they had the new 515 and 525 Penn Mag3 Reels in the US......They are getting raves as well

    Some thoughts on gear.........I have been using the $9.99 Crab Snares from Outdoor Pro Shop from the beginning and using wire to attach two 3oz No Roll Sinkers to the bottom of the cage where they would not interfere with the snare loops........BUT.......Repeated casting was stressing the wire...
