accidently tested out my rod
#1
Well, yesterday i had a chance to test out how strong my Skeet Reese 7' crankin rod is.....accidently. Well last night i put on my brand new matching Skeet Reese baitcaster and threw some 30# PowerPro on it. I was sitting on my bed just feeling out the new reel on the rod. You know, playing with the spool tensioner, tighening the drag....all that good stuff. Well....i have a 9' ceiling in my room, sitting on my bed which is about 2 1/2' or so off the ground and directly above me is a ceiling fan which hangs down about a foot. Well all of the sudden, the rod shoots out of my hand, i look up and my PSI trout colored lure falls and hits me in teh face. I see the rod all tangled up in teh ceiling fan blades spinning in a circle above me!! I jump up and flip off the switch....it took me a good 10 minutes or so to untangle my rod and line out of the ceiling fan!! Well, my rod didnt have a SINGLE SCRATCH on it!! Pretty damn tough rod! I think im feel comfortable pulling in any fish i look for with it!!!
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

You're lucky. I did that to my brand new calstar 9' rod. Long story short I sill have that rod but it now a 7 1/2'. You gonna catch a monster with the set up for sure.
I once gave up fishing. It was the most terrifying weekend of my life....

Let God lead the way!
Give a man a fish he eats for one day, teach him to fish he eats forever!

My experience with those rods are not good. I've broke 3 on hook sets. Each time in the same spot.
