    Reel Tester

    I just got a PM from my new best friend asking me to test their new reel. Finally, someone who has recognized my fishing prowess. It takes time for some to recognize greatness but eventually the alcolades do come. All i have to do is send him a check for $1000 and he will send me a check for $1500 and i can keep the extra $500. I belived the reel is made in Nigeria or somewhere in Russia. Ill keep you posted

    Congratulations. I knew it was just a matter of time before something like this happened to you. Surprised it didn't happen sooner

    I don't know how this is going to work out, as you need to catch fish to test a reel....

    Not necessarily. You see how often Macfly sells off his equipment? He buys it, looks at it for a few days, then realizes that he's not worthy and loses money with each purchase.
