Cuz, I'm getting old and older.  That's a good reason.

Some people eat lobster, steak, and caviar.  Some people just eat hot dogs, peanut butter sandwiches, and instant ramen noodles.  Er just something mutually exclusive for a thought.

Hobbies aren't free.  Gotta pay a little to enjoy a lot.

Well put... O0

If one can't afford nicer things, that's fine, gotta do what one gotta do but don't be an idiot by lying about it.

For example, when you go to a cheap buffet and have shrimp and snow crab legs, don't lie and claim it's "lobster" and "king crab".. ;D ;D ;D:

So a few days ago, weather was nice and kind I went outside to practice casting with the Curado BFS reel.  Of course I was using the 1/4 oz. practice plug so that was very easy to also see and retrieve it back.  Normally I use an actual brass bullet weight but since that's such a small profile it's that much harder to see.

Anyway I had the Curado BFS reel mounted onto the Phenix Ultra MBX 7' Light casting rod.  It all seem to work out very well.  During the winter period with the temps below zero, the Curado BFS reel wasn't working so well.  Those backyard snow practice casting seemed a bit sluggish in comparison to it's twin predecessor the Curado 70.  However with temps in 50F the Curado BFS worked smoothly.  In addition the magnetic FTB brake system was very quiet, in comparison to the typical centrifugal brakes systems on the other Shimano reels.  Let's just say that my Metanium MG7 reels sounds like noisy whirly noise makers.  Even the current makes of Chronarch MGL reels sounds noisy.

On the spool of the Curado BFS reel I have the YGK G-Soul SS112 Sinking Braid 10# at .165 mm diameter.  Now just my backyard casting it started to get close to spooling out.  I may have only about 40 yards of line on the spool maybe 50 yards at most.  Most of my fishing cast are only around 30-35 yards distance with lures of 1/4 oz. weights to 3/8 oz. weights.  Even then I mostly cast under 30 yards with a gentle cast of a wrist flick allowing the lure to propel and carry itself. 

I have yet to wet the line on this set up, but I'm feeling confident that it will perform well.  It may be some trout fishing first at the stocker pond.  Hopefully it will be some nicer weather.

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.
