This is getting out of hand he said she said bs. He said he has diawa 47lc ( not tekota or convectors) and a copper rod to offer for a price. We all know what tekotas cost and what convectors cost and what diawa 47lc cost. The original post states he wants quality copper reels. Were mostly budget fisherman and are brand loyal. Tekotas are great and pricey, convectors are great for the price a littles less expensive. Diawa 47lc are great and less expensive. It all depends on how much use and how you take care of your equipment. We've all spun this post out of context.
