    Default 50mg7

    Has anyone fished with this reel yet? Pros/cons? I found some decent deals on ebay, I've been thinking about selling one of my 50mg's and picking one up.

    By the way I went to FTU and they were out! Anyone know where else they sell them? I know the Academy in Gtown doesn't.

    Very nice reel. I think they have got it right, in a big way, with this one. I have pre-treated about half a dozen and cleaned a few as well. I have seen no issues at all so far. I would still reccomend a pre-treatment prior to use, especially if this is for wading. Also, on all the newer Shimanos, the drag should be re-greased prior to seeing much action.

    Bought a lot of reels from these guys. Quick delivery and never a problem. Sometimes they have them(discontinued models) marked way down. I picked up an old 50mg for $159. before they ran out. They show them in stock.
