Garcia 5500

Finally I see somone who uses the Garcia reels. I am not a pro or anything but my Garcias have handled anything I can throw at them. As a matter of fact, Pro fishermen would laugh at my equipment. Its like golf, I still use a persimmons wood (don't laugh) but the results is where it counts. I always smerk when I'm taking there money. With fishing, its the same, the equipment doesn't catch the fish, its the fisherman and the technique. Just my .02 cents.

I am a firm believer that it isn't so much the tackle as the fisherman. I landed a 8ft sailfish a couple years back on a 5500 with 12lbs test line. The fight took two hours before I landed it. The rod was a cheap Premiere rod series from academy.
