The Abu post got me to thinking, sure I like the Abu's as I have 6 or 7...let me see, 7000, 6500, 5600, 5500, 4600, 4600 Kokanee, maybe 1 I am forgetting but for bass fishing I really like the old Daiwa Millionaires. Not the new ones but the likes of say 4HM, 6000M and the millionaire II's.......

My first "Bass" Reel was a blue 4hm and it is still working and cast like a Dream. I have maybe 10 of em and want more.

Anyone else like the old millionaires???????

I have a mid 70's Millionaire Model 5 I traded for it when it was still in like new condition. (Bill Dance said that I just had to try one) My first T-Rigged bass, first bass over 5lbs, PB LMB, PB Chain Pickerel, and PB catfish and carp till a couple of years back, all came in on that reel. It doesn't look that great any more but still works as well as ever. I also had a 5H but I am not sure what happened to it, I think I traded it for a Penn 910.

I actually like the newer ones for one reason, i bought a smaller red one recently, the size of a 4600abu and it had a clicker on it.. the smallest reel i've ever seen with a clicker. Still havent used it yet tho :rolleyes: will hook a striper or so on it this season to be sure here's a pic of it i just found Automotive lighting Metal Magenta Machine Art

All reels, not just Diawa's will feel great after many years if they've never had to do anymore work than crank in a two pounder.
I think that is the only funny thing you have ever said.......Ok, 2nd funny. 1st was big fish! big fish! and you reeled in that little bullhead.
