The monkey got me last week. My wife and I took a road trip and stopped at BPS on the way, I wanted to pick up a set of Guide Ons for my trailer and I've been wanting  a 7' med action spinning rod, all mine are medheavy and I wanted one more 6'6" bait caster for using around docks and shoreline cover but was in no hurry to get them, at least not til I was attacked by the evil monkey, walked out with one each, combos with PRO QUALIFIER reels, the rods are the new PRO QUALIFIER rods, I believe the blank is the same as the original CARBONLITE rods which I really like. After we got back home, shortened trip because my wife didn't take her motion sickness pills so I had to get her home, I spooled them up with POWER PRO, 20 lb for the baitcaster and 15 for the spinning on one spool and 8 lb mono on the second spool! Back yard pitching and roll casting with the baitcaster, I like it, can't wait to hit the water!!
Old Fishermen never die, their rods just go limp.

Congrats on the new toys Rodney. You can't escape the monkey, he's everywhere.   ::)

He even gets me when I am places that have nothing to do with fishing. I see something and say to myself......hmmm, how could I use that while I'm fishing. Case in point: One time while in a bargain store I bought a retractable dog leash - we didn't own a dog. I wanted to try and use the mechanism as a lure retriever.
