    I would reccomend the Tica reels. I have the Tica dolphin, its the model up from the Scepter, and its great. I’m getting a Tica Cybernetic soon, and I may also get a Scepter for my other rod.

    I have the Cybernetic GG100.So is that model somewhere between the Dolphin and the Scepter sort of thing or competely different alltogether?

    Dolphin and Sceptor are quite similer, but the Cybernetic is quite a bit different in terms of the design and capacity.

    Oh yes nice looking reels too.A bit different than the GG100.You got to love those extra long handles and large knobs the Tica range carry.

    I have a 6500B too and they definatly are built to last i am going to use that when i need a shorter cast or dont need a longer one.Ie: at nigh or when lemons and moki come in closer to feed. My other rod and reel setup is an OKUMA axeon90 and predator i highly recomend it. The axeon can hold so much line as it has such a big spool I mainly use this for my longer casts (not that they really are ) :wink: and the predaor is great for gurnard with its sensitive tip.

    I feel your pain. having a favourite reel break is like a death in the family especially when you have fond memories of all the fish you have caught with it over the years.

    Unfortunately mine was a little more serious with the pinnion gear splitting :( :(

    I have to say the Tica is a good solid replacement. It casts nice and the retrieve speed is great.
    The only bug i have found with to to date is getting the bail arm to trip. It’s like everything is so new and “tight” that if you don’t take a run up at it it jams. Sounds like a good excuse to go fishing more often to break it in.
