"Yeah, I personally can't stand anything shorter than 8 feet, but I'm used to fly rods and crappie rods. For me an  an eight foot rod is a four foot rod. Four feet to get the rod to the side of the boat, and the rest extends beyond the…"

"Thx, man. For casting a good old spinning reel for sure. With a bait feeder system, it's good for drifting as well."

Slip Sinker replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"Your right… combination rod, reel, and additionally the line. Yeah 50 ft is my benchmark because it includes the fly fishing method… tough for me to cast over 50 ft from the boat or the dock. Fly fishing from my shorelines is…"

Damon Toney replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"That sound like the function of the rod not the reel. Any fly rod can throw that easily with flies much much lighter than that. Still the assumption is, well, I should clarify the ultimate panfish reel for trolling, drifting, jigging otherwise using…"

"I need to do a casting video of it. You have to feather it with your pinky just like our centerpin brethren. I have made some decent casts with it, but it isn't a megacaster. I'm seeing this reel for vertical jigging, spider rigging and…"

Mike Cooper replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"I'm interested in it! Looks like it would be great for vertically fishing jigs, but can you actually cast with it without backlashing it? What price range would it be in?"

Damon Toney replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"Thanks! I'm still putting it through its paces. I've been casting with it, but haven't had much opportunity to fish with it."

Bruce Tomaselli replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"That's definitely a cool looking reel. Let us know how it works for you? Have you given it a good test yet?"

Damon Toney replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"That's what I keep hearing. For ice I wondering if the level wind would freeze up too easily. Since I live in Alabama I have no way to testing it in ice conditions. I do a lot of longline drifting and trolling. Free spooling the line out gets…"

Slip Sinker replied to Damon Toney's discussion Ultimate Panfish Reel?
"Very cool reel… For me a reel of that nature would make a  great component to a dedicated vertical jigging setup.... or even icefishing... do you think there is any chance that there would be ice build up problem on the line guide up…"
