I decided to rename this reel my: OZ-Fighter - Power Gear (PG) 8000
Finally I got this handle as a gift and it is superbly made. I can tell from the craftsmanship, it was totally worth the yen it commands.
I decided to order from Saltywater Tackle in Brooklyn, New York. They had the item in stock and I wanted to support the friendly guys there. Paul and Sami have always been stand up guys and I know they are experienced fisherman and know their gear.
This was a perfect match for my DT colour spool. The scheme works out beautifully. Actually I am missing the cap and I already know where that will be coming from.I hope you enjoy the pictures.
Shimano Stella 8000 SW PG Studio Ocean Mark No Limits 16000 Spool & Handle DT color which is gold.
I also got the chance to pick up a 230gram FCL Labo jig in pink. This jig was famed for many years now as the creator is a angler from Japan that has a great storyline. He will come from Japan in a few weeks and I will hopefully get a chance to fish at his side. FCL Labo jigs are famous in USA.
The Varivas grey PE knot cord is 200lb rating at around 10 feet. Just enough for "on-trip" emergencies. I have a few 13/0 sized Jigging Master hooks made already. I didn't give up on them already. Hot's split ring and FCL labo jigs come from Kilsong's Jigging World and the SOM handle and Varivas PR knot comes via Saltywater Tackle. Cheers.
