RE: Old Florida reels 3-5-00
I got a good look at them at the Marlboro, MA show. Old Florida had a booth. Constructed well- impressive for the price. Smooth bearings. Saltwater models do not have a quick release spool.
It's likely that someone will have them at a booth at the Shriner's/Wilmington, MA show next week. I don't know much about the company at this time or how the reels perform over a couple of seasons.
