QUOTE..... " I started with an cheapo $50 Shakespeare combo " IMO you are better off beginning with a quality brand and reviewed, baitcaster. The problem you have is adjustability, and smoothness, with regard to backlash and drag. In other words, it's much easier to learn on quality, than an inferior product. I've used other folks, cheap baitcasters, through the years, that were tough to smoothly and accurately, throw, let alone teach, a first timer on... JMO... I only use Shimano!
