Hey Gang, I just acquired one of these, and was curious if anyone has ever used it for muskie? and, what kind of rod are you matching it with ? Thanks, tight lines!

you just bought the nicest piece of equipment on the planet, IMHO. once you get the side dial adjustments down you'll know it has no equal. i've had mine now for .. three years now? mabe 4 i can't remember. anyway the first year they came out with the 250. i suggest you use the reel for the more ''medium'' sized lures. it's got TE gears true, but why wear them out. besides once you get beyond medium size that reel really won't get a lure out any better than another reel anyway. ''BUT'' for a medium lure going into the wind it's perfect. and with the wind? lol, i'll just let you see it. rod... because of the reels smaller size i stuck with my 7'2'' IM8 MH muskie, guide series from gander. for asthetic purposes. just looked best on it and i like that size because it fits my boat when i dip my rod down to reel. keeps it at water level without bending over or back. anyway, MH at least 7' is my suggestion. bring it in and match it up? nice reel. congrats.

on a side note. your going to love that ''pinion'' spool and the smooth effortless retrieves. easy on the wrists.

Thank You Kindly, what do you usually spool yours with? I was thinking Masterbraid or PowerPro, any input would be appreciated.

30 lb. original spiderwire works best. best distance and seems to come off the spool smoother when the spool brakes itself. good luck. kind of cool when you can be 100 feet away from where you want to cast a smallish lure and cast another 100+ feet past it so you don't spook any fish. put a medium krocadile spoon on there once, lol. grin

Can't say anything bad about the Original Spiderwire, but for any lighter set-ups I wouldn't shy away from Stealth either. I was really impressed with how quiet and smooth it was. It even held up to a fish or two.

Good luck with the new reel.

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
