The bait runners,

What a fabulous tool.

I have a 4500,
It's been used since it first came on the market, can't remember, bloody years ago.

What an epic tool.
I still out of nostalgia use it on the same surf caster and boat rod.
They still work as well.
Sadly at times they do end up on the back shelf of use.
But then I see them again and go " hell your on the boat again" . Never disappointed.

Terrafish,

Brilliant summation of an excellent series of tools.

There longevity is proof of your words.

Enjoy you olllection.
Glad to hear your using them, cos they really do the job well.
But a few unused tucked away is always a good idea.

Although recently unused, they are as they should be a reliable lever drag tool that still works.
The full set of trolling fives I use are just fun as are the others.
They just work.
I think I like there simplicity and longevity.
Easy to maintain.
And work well.

Yep I agree but servicing has to be stayed on top of, or some parts will fail, or seize. Not unlike most reels but more so with the B's.

Easy Mattoo, they are just a great reel, that refuses to lie down quietly and die.
They're lightweight.
They're graphite so dont suffer the corrosion issues that plague so many ally framed reels, but can still take a lot of knocks and scrapes.
They have a good light drag quadrant, that allows nice gradual drag curve on light settings from free to strike.
They are just a nice beautiful piece of simple reel engineering

And i just really like em!

Almost going to be criminal to fish it, but wasnt brought for a show piece.

Sooooo Happy

Now I just have to find a 5!

Dammit pics not loading. So as not to overexcite you all with the suspense, it's only an old blackboxed Tld 10. But it's mine!!

If you are after a TLD 5 let me know as I know someone that may part with it if you cross his palms with gold.Wink

Well for some a TLD 10 could be a collectors item, they are no longer made.

I have one with a power handle on it ApproveCool
