Will be breaking in a pair of those Simm's waist-highs at the bake this weekend.

After a prolonged, drawn out battle over a POS 9 weight Redington Rise Reel, I finally recieved a Sage 2080. They even somehow "lost" my $80 Rio Salt line, so they offered to give me another and put it on.....then put about 1/2 the backing necessary on the reel. I swear they are fucking with me, but I'm not complaining now that I finally got it. I will put the new backing on.

Backing situation inexcusable... :cheer New gear update :cheer fighting with the shop to get an NV 11/12 G9 for the 10'6" 7/8 switch. They already have the CCF10 set up, and don't know if they can come up with that NV before the swinger's bake.
