Wow this Jed guy just doesn't give up! You guy's don't even know half of what Justin has done for me. Justin had donated everything from floating lines to several reels to my fly fishing group that I run for the high at risk kids here in Vancouver Wa. That's right I said Vancouver Washington. Justin is from Michigan, he doesn't have to donate anything but he does it. I've bought everything from reels to switch rods and have spoken and e-mailed Justin many many times and have bragged up his equipment every where I go. Try this rant at you're local fly shop, if it's anything like mine I would be told to take my business else where very swiftly and straight to the point. Justin would never tell you to do so but I think you'll find most everyone here would take great pleasure in telling you to get the fuck out of here and don't come back! you're welcome Justin
He has a new saltwater reel he's working on, and sent me one in an 8wt size to try in Cabo at no charge. The reel held up perfectly against numerous relentless skipjack that sent the thing screaming. Can't say that about many reels that are in its price range.
