You just started pinning and you got a Kingpin? Color me jealous.
I got a used rig, rod and reel at a very attractive price from a fellow who used it once and decided pinning wasn't for him. I wasn't really planning on centerpinning at the time but the deal was good enough to make me start since I knew I could get 95% of my money back on the gear.
Plus, I know Stuart from KingPin from when I met him on his trip to the NW. I have one of his spey reels so I was confident in the quality.
Purdy reel but the handles on the wrong side!
Well, if you decide pinning isn't for you, I call dibs on your Kingpin
I got a few pinning today for the first time. Don't tell the Spey clave people though they think I'm an unethical hack already.
I did that on purpose. I fish with gear/pawl reels and am habituated to using my right hand fingers for drag and winding. I'll be swapping during the day and didn't want two opposite reels. It's a little awkward but not a big deal.
