Postby round_ourway » Fri Mar 12, 2010 4:54 pm

I magged a penn 525 and abu 6500 during the week... I was actually surprised how simple a procedure it was!! famous last words.. no doubt.. I will test them out this weekend..

I also pimped my humpalumpa trolley and gave it a sexy coat of metallic blue
