Test Drives

Berkley Fireline Ultra 8 Carrier uses 8 carriers (thin or small diameter lines) to make one tough and strong line that is able to handle abrasion well.

Abu Garcia SeaCaster II Finesse fishing rods are quality rods made for fun Ultra Light tackle fishing. We tortured them and found them to be very capable.

The Berkley PowerBait Swim Shad is one very effective soft plastic bait. We caught lots of fishes on them such as groupers, golden snappers, and mangrove jacks.

The Penn Passion spinning reel takes on the hard fighting groupers and golden snappers during our field test. The Penn Passion certainly performed well.


When the sun gets hot but you are not ready to give up; the Abu Garcia Ice Sleeve will be of great help and relief.
