Thank you guys,
yep one of each the other 51 Curado and the second Brenious I've forgotten in the car.
..dont expect that someone like my reels, there are nothing special and not high end reels.
Thank you !

What kind of line do you prefere to topwater or rig fishing ? I do everything with Braid from 6 to 30lbs

@Booty : Yes Casitas arrived some days ago, nice reel !
