    Is Jennings issuing armbands now? Escape from a hospital?

    Yeah I love the new DC, great reel for the price. But have to say I love the Antares more. Try not holding your fish so close to the camera Rob! Lol

    I dont think the pricing will go up, It wasnt on promotion pricing during the pre-sale & now that theyre in stores pricing is still the same.
    I want to get a few more,,,,

    Vinny, inthedeep was referring to this:
    Curado DC............Catastrophe?

    As I read it, just looks like a bunch of drama to me....
    Sounds like some folks are crying about not being totally thumbless, most likely, skills, settings / tuning...
    Not reel "failures"
    It's not total magic & flawless operation, it's just another tool, mine works & fun!
    Figured in it makes " hypnotizing whirring sound ", its not broken & its working...

    Actually it sounds like it is a great reel. All that matters is that you like it.
    I have 9 Daiwa Tatula's from the HD's to some Type R's to the Tatula SV TW 103H and I love them. I have a few other mixed Daiwa bait casters also that I use. People may bash them, but I have no problems at all and put tons of hours using them and they work for me!
    I also have some Shimano Curado 300e's for larger baits and they are great too.
    For each his own......Wishing you many tight lines with your new reel.
    :)

    I recently purchased my 1st 2 baitcaster reels. They are both Daiwa Fuego CT, one is 7:3:1 the other
    is 8:1:1. I am really enjoying learning and using them. Thanks for the report and pic. Tight lines.
