Eric- is the skipping reel you mentioned the new one that they had at the Classic?! The Andy Montgomery one?
If so does it do that 1 job really well? Not much line to back lash.

I skip docks and pontoons a lot. Considered myself above average. Improved 30% at least, in distance, more in fewer back lashes. I have always used a e7 curado, biggest complaint was deep backlashes (terminal) and a spike on the thumb bar that tended to catch a loop should you need to fish thru a minor backlash doing a maintenance cast after. Lost a lot of fish over the years in this jam. I will have more of this one. Curados will all transition to winding baits.
The lite speed spool is probably more versatile and has more of a quality feel. Haven't used it to skip but it is probably the least prone to backlash that I have ever used. My educated thumb is going to get lazy. Won it in a raffle......will definitely have another of these too.
Andy Montgomery's reel works as advertised IMO. Well thought out. If I have a complaint, it doesn't have the solid quality feel of the lite. If they combine the 2 and I expect they will it will be totally awesome.
