I told my self, don’t buy anything. There’s nothing but junk I said to my self so just don’t even look! How ever of course since i do like 90% of my shopping on Amazon it was inevitable I’d find my self pursuing Amazon any ways. It’s fishing season after all and I’m in the market for a Light rig and of course gawking over expensive Salmon gear for next month. Luckily I didn’t end up at the bottom of a $400 salmon rig Primeday hole.
I did how ever scoop up a new light rig and a cheap Medium to replace one i just lost an eyelet on.
I scored a Pflueger President Spinning Combo fishing Reel Rod:
I got the last one in stock by Amazon which was listed for $71 with an additional %20 off! not a bad deal for a new light rig.
It’s got a Pflueger PRESSP25X reel:
- 10 Bearing System
- Graphite Body and Rotor
- Braid Ready Spool
- Sealed Drag System
- Slow Oscillation Gearing
- Aluminum Handle
The Rod is a 6'6" light rod with fast action. I don’t know much about the Rod but it just seems like a standard graphite blank with Pflueger branding. Should be a good reliable Light rig. Grabbed some 8lb powerpro spectra to spool it up with, I’ll probably throw on a 10lb fluorocarbon for a leader.
I also Grabbed a Berkley Cherrywood HD Spinning Rod:
Went with a 7' medium to replace the ol’ walleye slayer with the missing eyelet. I normally prefer my over 6'6" rods to be one piece but decided to go with a 2 piece for convince on this one. Got an extra 20% bringing this down to $21 bucks. I wanted a Berkley Lightning rod but i only had $22 left after buying the combo to spend and the lightning is $45 bucks.
I’m stoked for all this new gear. I have a big fishing day this Saturday and I no longer will be lamenting the lack of a better medium and lack of a light rig! Can’t wait for fish on!
