I just picked up 2 of the BPS exclusive Quantum KVD reels last week and so far I really like them. If you have the Father’s Day catalog, you can get them for $89…and they have lefties, that’s what I got.
As for rods, I personally have my eye on the St Croix Mojo Bass jerkbait/topwater rod. Has a nice feeling action, bit of spring in the top, but not too much…I juat got one of the spinnerbait models, and really like it.
Is it the KVD PT reel or the KVD “code” reel you got for that price?
