There has been posts where fishermen are asking what particular rod or reel they should buy for surf fishing or some other kind of fishing. In reviewing the recommendations there are folks that recommend very expensive rods. As I thought about that to me it makes more sense to put that money...
I've been using a Jigmaster 500 for a few years now, my favorite trigger/mingo reel. Problem is, I'm wearing out the gears about every other year. The reel is fished heavily each fishing trip.
Is there another reel the general size of the 500 that is tougher? Any possibility of upgraded gears?
I have an older Mitchell that needs serviced and and "Classic" Diawa rod I need to get redone. The eyes are good, but the wrap and grip are bad and fraying. Thanks for any help.
PS - I am in the Navarre area
