Certate 4000

Certate 4000

All loaded with 20lb Nitlon PE braid and ready to go. Hopefully test it out on some Tuna and whatever else I can find in Darwin in a couple of weeks.
Had to put the RCS knob on it. Dont know why they put a dud handle on a reel that costs that much.

shoulda bought the machined handle aswel, to replace the boring blue one then ;) Nice reel

3500hd is good value because it comes with a nice handle already.

They're pretty tough little

They're pretty tough little reels but it does have its limit. Mine is loaded with PE3 line which is at its limit but I'll be downsizing soon to PE2. Following is a short footage jigging with PE2 gear and line for a bloody sambo of about 10-12kg.....footage was from about Feb or Mar on Nebraska charters.

PE 2

Your right Honsu but I only ever bought it to fish 20lb anyway. Considering I was looking at the Caldia Kix its a big step forward.

Matched up to the Pfleuger Supreme Rod that I already had for it should make an great combo.
