What have I started!?

Recommended Posts

Just aquired my second centrepin.....I had a Leeds years back but sold it, now Ive just picked up an Okuma Raw (not to everyones taste but I like it).


Will I ever stop spinning it? Will it be the only one I'll own? Will my wife stop looking at me strangely for slowly twirling the handles?



Me'thinks its a slippery slope...

I have an Okuma aventa pro.

Different floats for different folks!

Now don't be silly Mike! Everyone knows that pins should be displayed proudly on shelves, occasionally brought down to be spun whilst the owners giggle manically :crazy:

I use a pair of Adcock Stanton's on a couple of 3 piece Harrison Power Float plus 2's and they are gorgeous to use, Float fishing with them is a privilege and playing a good tench feels great. Great ratchet on them as well for when I fall asleep.
