NWM - didnít you fix the roof after a tree fell on the house and broke into the kitchen?

Yes, but that took me 10 months. Compared to Ski Pro, I'm a slacker...

I ended up getting Abu Garcia Ambassadeur SX from here:

https://fishermenssource.com/products/abu-garcia-ambassadeur-sx-round-reels

Partly I got it because that site had it listed for $49.95 with free shipping and no tax, while it was at least $80 everywhere else online ($99 at Bass Pro). Actually, I bought 2 of them at that price. Now, they've got it listed for $69.99, which is still cheaper then any place else that I can see, but not as crazy super-cheap as it was.

Unfortunately, they sent me left-hand reels, when I wanted right-hand. They say they will exchange them with no shipping charge, and I'm debating whether to exchange 0, 1, or 2...
And have you traveled very far?
Far as the eye can see
How often have you been there?
Often enough to know

That's a score! I like mine - it casts very smoothly. Hope you get the left/right situation sorted easily.
